An Entertainer’s Basketball Classic game shouldn’t be this serious. It shouldn’t result in this. Details from NY Daily News…
Five people were shot on a Harlem basketball court Wednesday night during an annual basketball tournament, officials and witnesses said.
Gunfire erupted around 10 p.m. at the Holcombe Rucker Park court on Frederick Douglass Boulevard near W. 155th St. after a dispute during a game for the Entertainers Basketball Classic, witnesses said.
“They started arguing, about a bad call or something like that,” said Rodney Harris, 47. “The guy was standing no more than five feet away from me. He pulled a gun out of his pocket and shot once. He then shot one more time. Everyone started running.”
“He was real close to me,” Harris said. “I thought I got shot.”
Nate Robinson, a former point guard for the Knicks, was at the game but escaped unscathed, witnesses said.
