Red Bull: King of the Rock (Alcatraz) Finals

This past July and August, Red Bull USA sponsored a 1-on-1 basketball tournament that pitted player against player, in a single elimination basketball game.  The kicker was that the finalists would be playing to compete in the finals on The Rock, better known as Alcatraz.

While Alcatraz has been closed since 1963, the 22-acre former lighthouse island, has been featured in a number of television shows and movies; the 1996 smash The Rock, starred Sean Connery and Nicholas Cage.

Players from all over the world made their way to California to compete in the 1-on-1 tournament and were cheered on by Boston Celtics point guard, Rajon Rondo.

Beginning tomorrow night, on Comcast and Fox networks you can tune in to see the finals. (Check your local listings for availability.)
