Eric Bellinger DESTROYS Yeezy Red Octobers

TThis week I was on set for the new music video by singer/songwriter Eric Bellinger and rapper 2Chainz. The all-day-video-shoot consisted of many celebrities stopping by – including Tyrese, Kid Ink, Mally Mal, Mya and more.

For one of the pool side scenes, Eric decided to jump in while wearing his Nike Air Yeezy Red Octobers! I couldn’t believe what I saw on set, so i made sure to take lots of pictures and a video! Check it out below

Jordan Hangar opens in Los Angeles

AAnyone who follows Carmelo Anthony and Jordan Brand has heard of Terminal 23 – a private gym located in the heart of New York – reserved for special events, as well as private runs that include anyone from Carmelo Anthony to Chris Brown. Jordan Brand has opened up a west coast version of this iconic gym in the heart of Los Angeles, called Jordan Hangar. The old airplane hangar was transformed into a basketball court, as well as other stations that include everything from checking out new clothes or trying out your dribbling skills.

This weekend hosted 2 days of excitement – Saturday featured LA Clippers Chris Paul, while Sunday was a battle of the best high school players in Southern California. I made my way down there Sunday  and got to check out some top basketball talent from Los Angeles, The Valley, Orange County, and Inland Empire. The championship game was IE vs LA, resulting in IE taking the win. As a special surprise, NBA Finals MVP and IE native Kawhi Leonard came to congratulate the players. The venue is really amazing, anyone who gets an opportunity to visit, make sure to check it out!

USC takes win over CSULA Exhibition Game

TThe Galen Center hosted the first basketball game of the season – an exhibition between USC and Cal State Los Angeles. Despite being in two different divisions and conferences, the game had some nice highlights – from crossovers to blocked shots. The season looks like it will be an exciting one for the Trojans. They have a lot of young guys with amazing talent. Freshman Jordan McLaughlin started his college career with 18 points, while Sophomore Nikola Jovanovic had 16 points. Cal State LA had recent transfer LaBradford Franklin – who just came from playing at San Diego State. It was great seeing him in action on the court, really leading his team.

USC alumni JT Terrell was in attendance to check out the game as well. Make sure to make your way to the Galen Center next weekend to see them take on Portland State!

USC Basketball Opens with “Fan Fest” Scrimmage

WWith college basketball right around the corner, many fans are looking to find the best local games to attend during the season. USC did a great job at promoting their fan fest, a free event where fans could come enjoy activity booths and free posters, as well as meet the players, getting autographs and pictures. There was also a scrimmage for the Girls and Guys teams.

For those of you who follow my Thru The Lens series, I followed Jordan McLaughlin last year as he was entering his Senior Year of High School. It was great getting to catch up with him as he starts on his new journey in college. To see the episode, click here.

It was a fun event and I’m looking forward to catching more USC games this season! Check out the photo gallery below

Don Benjamin hosts Celebrity Basketball Game

BBasketball is a year round game. Even with the NBA season ends, the summer brings just as much action. With the summer officially over, there are many basketball lovers that keep the games going. Supermodel Don Benjamin hosted his second annual celebrity basketball game in Los Angeles, CA. The game featured street ball legends Bone Collector and Sik Wit It, Harlem Globe Trotters Tammy Brawner and Chris Staples, actors Malcolm D Kelley, Najee De-Tiege and many more! There was a team of celebrities that went up against a team of high school players. The score was really close and went down to the wire – with seconds left on the clock and the score tied, the High School team brought the ball down and hit a winning 3-point shot at the buzzer to win the game! It was a great atmosphere and a fun time! Check out the photos below:
