Brandon Jennings celebrates birthday weekend in LA

OOne thing you learn from being around NBA player Brandon Jennings is how much he loves spending time with his close friends and family when he’s not playing basketball. He celebrated his 26th birthday and flew back to Los Angeles to bring his closest friends and family out to celebrate. He took everyone to one of the most famous sushi restaurants, Nobu in Malibu. It was a beautiful view of the ocean and the food was amazing! The rest of the weekend was spent with good vibes and good people! Brandon loves the 90’s and he made sure to bring out the Polaroid camera! (I made sure to try it out!) Check out the pics below!

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!

NBA Star Brandon Jennings rents entire movie theater for “Straight Outta Compton”

LLast night NBA Star and Compton Native, Brandon Jennings, rented an entire movie theater in Los Angeles for his friends and family. With the recent release of the biopic “Straight Outta Compton”, he wanted to make sure people got a chance to see the city and learn about an important part of history that impacted the world. Brandon is a great guy and always loves to highlight the positive and give back to the community. Thanks again for everything, Brandon! Check out some of the pics 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!

NBA All Star combines with New York Fashion Week

HHaving both NBA All Star Weekend collide with New York Fashion Week brought out the best of both worlds – as well as some of those worlds combining! Throughout New York you could find some of the most fashionable NBA players attending fashion shows – either as spectators or actually involved with the clothing lines! I checked out the Behind the Bench gala – a fundraiser/fashion show put on by the basketball wives. The event took place at the Marriot in Times Square and was beautifully set up. I made my way backstage to link up with two different clothing lines started by NBA players. The first was Dorell Wright [Portland Trailblazers] line, Scrapes and Gravel. The second was Jack McClinton [Former NBA] and Carlos Boozer [LA Lakers] line, Loaded Dock. Other players in attendance to support were Quincy Miller [Detroit Pistons] and Eric Moreland [Sacramento Kings]. It was fun seeing a different side of these players – as well as seeing the creativity that goes into the entire process! I have some pictures below, but I also have some video footage coming soon!

Drew League Week 08 – Saturday: Brandon Jennings scores 57 points!

TThe week has finally come – NBA players are officially in free agency and are allowed to played in the summer leagues – The anticipation on Saturday to see who would show up was in full effect! NBA legend and Drew League regular, Baron Davis, started off the morning playing with Cheaters. NWA took on Cheaters 2 for an exciting match – including the NWA duo of Jonathan Gibson and Charles Garcia going against Cheaters 2 with big men Ryan Watkins and Kenny Lawson Jr. The came the biggest game of the day – The Clozers vs Sole Clinics. Austin Daye and Brandon Jennings teamed up with Marcus Williams for Clozers, while Derrick Williams and Stanley Johnson teamed up for Sole Clinics. It was a great matchup between the two teams. Brandon Jennings started hitting a lot of really crazy jumpers and it just continued…he was unstoppable. By the end of the game, Brandon finished with nearly 60 points! Also seeing Stanley Johnson go up against NBA guys is truly amazing – he is NBA ready right now! The Clozers took the win 107 – 84. Looking forward to seeing how the rest of the summer goes now with the mixture of NBA talent among the teams! Check out the photo gallery below
