By appearances, the concrete pavement, anchored on one side by its rundown slab bleachers, is no different than any other basketball court in the city, but this is the place where nicknames are indelibly branded, and legends are born. On September 1, 2006, the top 24 high school basketball players in the nation stepped out on this court that once saw the likes of Wilt Chamberlain, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, and Dr. J to compete in the first annual "Elite 24" all-star game. This Gunnin' for that #1 Spot basketball documentary DVD follows eight of these players as they prepare to showcase their skills at the most legendary playground in the world. Directed by Adam Yauch of the Beastie Boys, the documentary trails these players on the fast track to the NBA, as they are being groomed to be in the spotlight of a multi-million dollar game. Combining Yauch's unique directing style with raw hip hop music, Gunnin' highlights these soon-to-be NBA All Stars.
