Earl Rodney Monroe Jr. was 14 when police first arrested him. In a little more than a year, officers nabbed the boy 10 more times, lodging felony charges that pointed to one conclusion: Lil' Earl was dealing drugs on the streets of his West Baltimore neighborhood.

But every time Earl was arrested, juvenile justice workers and judges released him, only to see him return.

Chuck Foreman, meet Earl "The Pearl" Monroe. That's the how-de-do that Foreman, a former NFL star running back, wants to hear. "It would be a joy to run into Earl some day," he said.

As more and more players arrive, rap spills from a living-room speaker set next to an '80 Riviera parked courtside, announcing that the evening's action is about to commence. Sides are chosen, and soon the basketball is in play.The Moylan Recreation Center at 25th and Diamond is a proving ground, one of several playgrounds where Philadelphia's best players have always come to learn the game, to test themselves, to put their skills on display.
