Story of From the hoop is inspired by Earl Manigault's life. Earl Manigault was one of the greatest basketball player of his generation. Mentored by Holcombe Rucker through his youth he became the star of his high school team. As an universitary champion, he seemed destined to shine in NBA. But before the transition, he fell into drugs and lead his life far away from the basket. After dark years made of jail, drugs and friend's death, he gave up this world to return in the right way to Harlem. He started the "Walk Away From Drugs" tournament for kids in Harlem. He died in 1998 from a heart failure.

From the hoop first take place in Harlem streets then go to the Rucker Park, a famous Harlem's playground renamed in memory of Holcombe Rucker.

The Rucker park is considered as an important place of street ball history and had welcomed some of the greatest players of all times during yearly competitions.
