Chris Paul launches CP3 IX at the Kings of So Cal Tournament

SSanta Monica Pier was the breathtaking location for the Kings of So Cal tournament this year! Jordan Brand built an entire court in the middle of the Pier – something that has never been done before. This was not only a showcase for the top talent in southern California, but also a launch for the newest Jordan Brand sneaker – the Chris Paul IX’s. There were 4 teams total – each team rocked a different color way of the sneaker. There were also different stations set up around the pier where people could try on the sneaker and do different activities.

The tournament kicked off with Los Angeles vs The Valley. The Valley took control early on in the game and took the win. The next game was Orange County vs Inland Empire. IE are the defending champions from last year’s tournament. They also took a major lead in this game and took the win. Before the championship game began, there was a dunk contest with some impressive players. Chris Paul stopped by with his son Chris to interact with the players and check out all of the Jordan Brand stations set up. The championship game was a great match up with two very good teams. Unfortunately, the marine layer came in strong and the floor started to get slippery, causing the game to end before it was over.

Overall it was an amazing location with really great high school talent! Looking forward to seeing the other exciting events that Jordan Brand will put together! Check out the photo gallery below

Chris Paul hosts “The 8″ AAU Touranment in Vegas (Day 01)

CChris Paul is not only an amazing basketball player, but he also is a great coach. He coaches an AAU team – Cp3 All-Stars – which includes the number 1 High School player in the country, Harry Giles III. I made my way out to his tournament in Vegas and got to see some great basketball! Right before CP3’s team took the court, Jayson Tatum, the number 2 player in the country, took to the floor to show his game. His team played against Victor Oladipo’s team. Jayson and Harry recently represented team USA and won Gold in Greece. Jayson is a Duke commit, which leads many to hope/believe that Harry might be joining him as well. Until Harry makes his decision for a college, he is continuing to dominate the highschool world. He played amazing this game! Really excited to watch his career grow! Check out the photos below

NBA All Star Weekend: All Star Game

TThe most anticipated part of the entire weekend is of course the All Star game! The event took place at Madison Square Garden in front of a packed arena! The star studded event didn’t just include the stars on the court – the stands were filled with all kinds of familiar faces in the entertainment and sports world. It’s always fun watching the all star game because you can see how some of your favorite players would play on the same team – something we wouldn’t normally get to see throughout the regular season. These matchups and teammates made it a very interesting game to watch. Especially on the west – Stephen Curry and Chris Paul dishing assists – watching Russell Westbrook score everything coming his way as well! The game ended with the West taking the victory, as well as Russell winning MVP with 41 points! The second highest scorer ever in an All Star game (Off by 1 point for the most number!) It was a fun event to get to see live, make sure to check out the highlights on nba.com

Clippers return to Staples Center for first time since Donald Sterling ban

ht_clippers_hp_kb_140429_16x9_992

The morning before the game 5 playoff between the Clippers and the Warriors, NBA commissioner Adam Silver announced that Clipper owner Donald Sterling would be fined 2.5 million dollars for his racist statements, along with a lifetime ban from any NBA related activities. Just hours after this news released, I headed down to staples center to see how the atmosphere was at the game. There were many fans outside protesting against Donald Sterling remaining the owner. Because many of the sponsors had also pulled out from working with the Clippers, there was a very different atmosphere – It was quiet and a bit sad before the game started. Before the players came out, we as fans were urged to stand as one and support these Clippers players who are out here fighting for a championship despite all of the controversy. The Clippers stated, “We Are One”. The fans really got up the energy which fed the players throughout the game. As the players continued to play well, it livened up the entire arena – ultimately resulting in a Win for the Clippers. They will be headed to Golden State to play game 6 of the series. Check out the video below for a recap
