Best "internet possible truth rumor" that I could find is that his name is Nigel Miguel. A guy who played for UCLA and supposedly a playground top-dog in his time. No clue if it is true or not.

Don't know his name, but if you watch "White Men Can't Jump" you will see him in it. So check the credits.

He is a playground legend though.
