Paintballing with Andre Drummond

OOne of my favorite parts about working with athletes is getting to know them outside of basketball – seeing their hobbies and what sparks their interest. Every athlete has a different and unique story, something you get a taste of especially during the offseason. Today my friend Andre Drummond from the Detroit Pistons invited me to come out and try paintballing for the first time down at Hollywood Sports in Bellflower, CA! It’s something i’ve always wanted to try, but I have to admit I was a bit nervous about it! He brought out a great group of people, ranging from beginners to very skilled! I definitely got the more painful side of the day – ending up with multiple bruises from the paintball hits! I had a really fun time, Andre is such a great guy! Check out some of the pictures below!
