Julian Vasquez Wins Miami's King of the Rock Street Ball Championship Qualifier (Video)

See King of the Rock Awards $1,000 to Miami's Best Street Baller.

Wade, LeBron, and Bosh aren't the only guys in Miami with skills on the court. And at last weekend's King of the Rock qualifier, a street ball competition held at Jose Marti Park, dozens of our city's basketball elite turned out for their chance to drive to the hoop.

Sponsored by Red Bull, the contest offered a $1,000 prize to the best player of the day. For the second year in a row, Julian Vasquez took home the title of best baller in Miami. He'll also compete at the King of the Rock finals in September, a game taking place on The Rock, a.k.a. Alcatraz, in San Francisco, California.

Check out Vasquez's moves, and those of his worthy opponents, in the video after the jump.
