Day 04: Team USA Practice [Las Vegas]

DDay 04 concludes the final practice day here in Las Vegas. The select team has already headed phone, while the practice for the USA guys was shortened. The big questions circulating around is which 12 players will be selected to continue to final roster after Friday’s scrimmage. Some choices are more obvious than others – so it will be interesting to see who makes the final cut. Check out the action that went on in day 04 below:

Day 02: Team USA Practice [Las Vegas]

DDay 02 of Team USA practice was being shown on NBA TV. Because of this, they cut the practice early and the media was up on the second floor. It was cool to see some of the match-ups of the Select Team vs Team USA. Match-ups like Kyrie Irving and Marcus Smart. Check out some of the pictures I got of the interviews and other action!

Day 01: Team USA Practice [Las Vegas]

TTeam USA has officially kicked off – starting off their summer journey here in Las Vegas, NV. Day 1 of practice was all eyes on Derrick Rose – who has missed close to 2 seasons due to injuries – and is now making his return in these summer games. During the scrimmage he looked great. I’m looking forward to seeing how he will perform all summer. The roster includes a talented list of NBA guys, as well as a Select team chosen to scrimmage against the team USA players. The full roster is below, as well as a photo gallery of day 1!

Drew League Week 10 – Sunday

SSunday was a day filled with good games – from the morning to the late afternoon. NFL Star Terrell Owens was in attendance to play with Robin hood Project. Later in the day, JR Smith and Rashad McCants joined Ron Artest and The Game on La Familia to secure another win. The day continued with great games, ending off with a faceoff of the two teams responsible for the most championships in the past 5 years – The Clozers (formely LAUNFD) and The Blazers. Jordan Hamilton along with his two brothers Gary and Isaac teammed up with Marcus Williams. Malcolm Thomas and Frank Robinson teammed up with Horrace aka The Gingerbread Man for The Blazers. The game was really close, but ultimately The Clozers took the win. Check out the photo gallery below!

Thru The Lens: Episode 4 – Day in the Life of Nick Young

THUMB_072214_

TThis was the first episode I ever filmed for my web series, Thru the Lens. Nick Young had just returned home from his season in Philadelphia and was getting ready for the summer of free agency. He went on to be signed by the LA Lakers and has become one of the most lovable players in LA. In this episode, we follow not just Nick, but his assistant Adrian (aka Big Meat). This duo had me laughing non stop throughout the entire day. This webseries is made to give a more intimate look into the lives of some of your favorite athletes and entertainers. Instead of looking at the life of someone, I invite you to spend a day alongside them. This episode has everything from a sneak peak of Nick’s shoe collection, what he eats for breakfast, taking a trip to visit his parents, walking through USC and a hilarious bet at the end to figure out if the In N Out in Hollywood is closer to LaBrea or Highland. Check out the episode below and let me know your thoughts! More episodes coming soon!

There were signed jerseys, paintings and other memorabilia lined up around the building that people could bid on to raise money. There was plenty of food, good music and great people throughout the night.
