A Streetballer Lights Up The Valley

September 28, 2011

Eight years ago, Randy Gill was crowned as the “Best Baller” on the MTV reality show Who’s Got Game?

Since then, Gill, aka “White Chocolate,” has been featured on And1 mixtapes and has played pickup ball with NBA stars like Kevin Durant and Allen Iverson.

Now? Gill is lighting up the Harrisonburg/Rockingham County courts on a nightly basis. The 33-year-old former Bowie State point guard moved from Washington to Harrisonburg earlier this month with his wife and two kids (they’re expecting a third within the next week or so), but his street game has translated just fine to the new setting.

Gill who said his “ears are to the street,” in search for competitive games every day, was at Spotswood High School on Tuesday night, playing with some of the Trailblazers.

After putting on a passing clinic in an up-and-down 20 minute game, Gill decided to knock down 27 straight 3-pointers from the top of the arc (I only got about 17 on camera). His motor never stops. While everyone else in the gym needed to catch a breather, Gill was busy jumping up and down, touching the wall until the next game began.

Gill said he hopes to organize basketball clinics and also bring his And1 buddies to the Convocation Center for an event. Until then, he’ll be at a local court near you, dribbling and shooting with amazing proficiency.

Here are some highlights from Gill’s stop at SHS.
