The final game of the 2006 AND1 streetball mixtape tour took place in Madison Square Garden on August 25. The three finalists were Cirucs, Springs and Special F/X. They were battling for the celebrated AND1 contract which would place them on the official mixtape team for the following year. The winner was Circus, who had been on the entire tour since walking on from the first Open Run of the summer. At 5-10, 175-pound, the Brooklyn point guard went to St. Patrick's high school in New Jersey, Witchita State, and has some ABA minor league experience.
After the game, InsideHoops.com held an interview with Circus who'd won the AND1 Contract.
Here's what Circus, whose real name is Jerome Holman, said to InsideHoops.com and a few other reporters mere minutes after being announced as the 2006 AND1 endorsement deal winner:
On winning the deal: It felt great, man. It seemed like it was almost set up for me as far as the stage. It was a long, long three months, playing against some of the great guys, getting into feuds, but I'm just... man, to go from L.A. all the way to New York, 25 cities, nine elimination games where I could possibly get back to New York not doing nothing again, it felt great. Family and friends out there. I can't even explain it, man.
