NBA Where Are They Now: The 8 Players from Gunnin' for That No. 1 Spot

It's been five years since Adam Yauch (better known as MCA) of the Beastie Boys combined his love of film, basketball and the city of New York to create the documentary, Gunnin' for That #1 Spot. The film follows eight high school phenoms, aging from 15-18, as they are invited to play in the first Elite 24 Hoops Classic played at the legendary court at Rucker Park.

The game included the best high school players in the country, ranging from sophomores to seniors, all competing to earn respect and a nickname on the street court in Harlem.

That all took place in 2006, and now, in 2011, seven of the eight players featured in the movie are in the NBA, with the only other on the verge of being drafted. One of the featured players won Rookie of the Year. Fifteen of the 24 total players in the game are now in the NBA, which shows the level of competition.

Here's a look at where they are now.
