Red Bull King of the Rock basketball tournament, hosted by Rajon Rondo

If you’re planning on spending your Saturday afternoon watching television, be sure to tune in to CBS at 2:00 pm for a very cool basketball tournament played on Alcatraz Island. The tournament is hosted by our very own Rajon Rondo (as you probably read in the title) and is sponsored by Red Bull (which it also says in the title).

The tournament features 64 players from all over the world who come together to play on the “yard” that inmates once played in years ago. No other sporting events have ever been held on the island other than this basketball tournament.

This is the second time the tournament has been held and it’s the second time that Rondo has hosted the event (the video above is from 2010).

If you think you’re good enough to play in the tournament, you can learn more information about it by visiting
