"Hooked" give away

You can win the "Hooked - The Legend Of Demetrius 'Hook' Mitchell" DVD or a t-shirt on urbansmarts.com.
The DVD is about Hook, who's a streetball legend from Oakland who grew up with Jason Kidd, Gary Payton and other NBA Stars. At 5'9", he built his legendary street status by jumping over the top of a Volkswagon and slam dunking a basketball. Gary Payton asserts, "he was better than me, he was better than Jason (Kidd), Antonio (Davis), he was better than everybody." But while Hook's childhood friends, Gary, Jason, Antonio, Brian Shaw, J.R. Rider and Greg Foster all ended up playing basketball in the NBA, Hook ended up incarcerated. From the drug and crime infested streets of West Oakland to the California Men's Penal Colony, 'Hook' made all the wrong choices. The story of how 'Hook'wound up incarcerated, while the buddies he grew up with skyrocketed to superstardom with multi-million dollar salaries, is told in this poignant tale of a life gone wrong. 'Hook' Mitchell is the greatest basketball player to never make it to the NBA.
