Besides the Adam Yauch of hip-hop and music fame, there was also Adam Yauch: filmmaker and hoops fan.

Before he was diagnosed with cancer in 2009, Adam Yauch directed the documentary  Gunnin’ For That #1 Spot and distributed it on his film production company Oscilloscope Labs in 2008.

Gunnin’ was one of the more insightful and entertaining looks on the sport, featuring a great cast who, for the most part, have since found success in the NBA. It was also the first to give us near unfettered access to the world of Michael Beasley. Mike: please never stop watching Spongebob and filming home-made horror movies.

Recommended viewing for a basketball fan even if you haven’t been following the sport the last few years. Plus its finale takes place in the sport’s largest stage, second to The Garden: the legendary Rucker Park court in Harlem, New York City. 

Rest in Peace MCA!

Godspeed, MCA

Thankfully, the Finals start in less than 24 hours. I can only play the, “World Championship of Players from New York”, so many times.
