New York City and Phily are well-known for their streetball standouts- and rightfully so. Washington, though not nearly as large, has had its share of blacktop ballers too. Here’s a shout out to some of the best:

“Greeky” Watson

Elgin “Rabbit” Baylor

William “Chicken Breast” Lee

Terry “Razor Arms” Hatchett

Oscar Phillips

Willie Jones

“Monk” Malloy

Bernie Levi

Tom Little

“Ducky” Vaughn

“Playground” Bennett

Stacy Robinson

Archie Talley

Curt Smith

Randy “White Chocolate ” Gill

Hugh “Baby Shaq” Jones

Lonnie “Prime Objective” Harrell

  1. dicky browne was very competitive, aggressive on defence, adequate ball handler and decent jumper. played with and against most of the top players in the 70’s and 80’s. my favorite players of that time are kenny carr, ralph ledbetter, stacy robinson, james bracey, penny greene, jeff briscoe, micheal johnson, rubin collins(philly), bobby cannon(eastern shore). There are so many guys I have seen that it would take a lifetime to give everyone their due.
    I like what Penny has done to try to narrow the list of the most notable.

  2. Thanks for weighing in. I had the pleasure of meeting you when we held our kickoff event in Landover, and at Kevin Tatum’s cookout. You were a class act when your h.s. (DuVal) won the state, and are one now.
