We covered the USA Basketball Showcase Game from Radio City Music Hall in NYC last week. If you were there you witnessed Nike’s first-ever World Basketball Festival, and they did it right. The game (which was held Thursday, August 12th) ended when Tyson Chandler threw down the sudden-death game-winning alley oop giving the Blue team a 49-47 win over the White squad. Philadelphia 76er Andre Iguodala won game MVP with a bunch of crowd pleasing dunks.

Following the game, there was a special musical guest who turned out to be Jay-Z. He performed for 20 minutes and had the packed crowd going crazy.
