Thru The Lens: (DAY IN THE LIFE) S2; Ep4 – Dre Day – Andre Drummond

IIn Episode 4, we take you on a journey of one of the biggest rising stars in the NBA today – Andre Drummond. So many have seen his amazing skills on the court but his personality and work ethic off the court is also something great! Spending more than 2 months over the summer in Santa Barbara, CA; Cassy Athena follows Andre through a day in the offseason. Andre show’s how he practices his techniques and focuses on the mechanics of his body through training and technology. He also shows his competitive-ness with another sport he dominates at – bowling! Andre is no beginner – with his highest score being almost a perfect 300, he’s tough competition at the bowling lanes as well!

Andre Drummond celebrates UFC fighter’s birthday in Hollywood

FFriday night was a busy night for Hollywood – particularly at club Playhouse. NBA Star John Wall celebrated his birthday, as well as a live performance from Lil Wayne. The club brought in basketball stars and celebrities from all over the country.

This past week, the Detroit Pistons were in Las Vegas doing team bonding. One of their activities was training with UFC fighters (check out some of the Instagram videos below)

One of the UFC fighters, Kevin Lee (who is also from Detroit) just turned 23 and Andre Drummond brought him out to Hollywood to celebrate on Friday night. It was a lot of fun and there were so many people! Check out some of the pictures below!

Team USA 2015: Scrimmage

TThe Team USA Mini-Camp concluded with a Blue vs White scrimmage at the Thomas and Mack center at UNLV. A big concern in the back of everyone’s mind that watched last year was making sure there were no injuries.

The scrimmage included some players who weren’t apart of the two practice days – including Elfrid Payton, Arron Afflalo, and Amir Johnson. The first half was pretty light – the guys were putting on a show, but being careful. The second half turned into some big game highlights – with humungous dunks from Blake Griffin, Andre Drummond, DeMar DeRozan and Victor Oladipo. Blake and Andre had some monster dunks, while DeMar DeRozan did a 360 dunk. Arguably the biggest dunk of the game was Victor Oladipo dunking over Michael Carter-Williams and doing a dance after!

It was a fun game full of energy and smiles. The White team ended up winning 134-128. I had a great time being apart of Team USA for another year! Looking forward to next year! Check out the photos below

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!

Michael Jordan hosts All Star Party

EEvery year during all star weekend, one of the most exclusive parties to get access to is the Jordan Brand party, hosted by Michael Jordan himself. This year was no different – a line of invite-only guests wrapped around the building, as people waited in below freezing temperatures to get inside. The building, located on Wall Street, was two stories big, as well as 2 different stages for artists to perform. Ariana Grande was the first to come out and perform. A side stage had Prince performing. The upper level was a VIP floor that included just about every celebrity you could think of – Michael Jordan, Beyonce, Jay Z, Carmelo Anthony, Kevin Durant, Russell Westbrook, Andre Drummond, James Harden, Victor Oladipo, Ludacris, Nelly, Derek Jeter and the list goes on…I snapped some pics to share some of the inside atmosphere. Overall it was a pretty cool event to check out!
