Dorell “DJ Uno” Wright hosts day party

NNBA player Dorell Wright recently celebrated his younger brother, Delon Wright, getting drafted #20 to the Toronto Raptors. They celebrated over the weekend at a day party with friends and family. Dorell has ventured off into other areas outside of basketball – including his clothing line, Scrapes and Gravel, as well as Charity work (DWrightWay Foundation). This time around, he showed that he is a DJ as well – “DJ Uno” took the spotlight at the day party to show off his skills! It was pretty fun! Check out the photos 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 Playoffs kick off with upsets

TThe Drew League playoffs officially kicked off last weekend. There were upsets left and right – teams that were expected to go through didn’t, while other teams that weren’t on the radar rose to the occasion. Saturday was filled with a lot of excitement.

Coming from the team USA game in Vegas the night before where Paul George had a horrible injury, it was understandable that NBA players might not want to continue playing immediately the next day. James Harden and DeMar DeRozan were on the sidelines checking out the action, as well as Dorell Wright. La Familia was missing DeMar, JR Smith and Ron Artest. It hurt them and they took the loss to the Jaguars. Next up was Nick Young’s team – he did play, but without Paul George or Gilbert Arenas, they too fell to Hank’s Houdini’s All-Stars. The next game was a classic rematch of the two teams responsible for the past 5 years of championships – Citi Team Blazers vs The Clozers (formerly LAUNFD) This was an extremely close game but it came down to the Blazers taking the win. Sunday was the next round of playoffs which knocked out most of the teams. The teams left that will compete for the championship are Cheaters 1 vs Houdini’s All-Stars and Cheaters 2 vs COA. You don’t want to miss the final games! It will be great basketball

Drew League Week 09 – Sunday: Brandon Jennings scores 56, Toronto All-Stars join forces, Disney Stars courtside and more!

SSunday was a busy day at the Drew League. The morning started off with Jeff Remington scoring one of the biggest plays of the weekend – in fact it was so big, it made the Sports Center top 10! He has been one of the rising stars this summer, really making a name for himself. Because of Kevin Durant hosting a camp the previous day on the roof of the Drew League, rumors were spreading throughout that he would be playing that day. The line wrapped around the building to get inside. Although it felt like 100 degrees inside the gym, the stars made their way courtside checking out the games. Toronto Raptors stars Terrence Ross, Kyle Lowry and DeMar Derozan were watching the games until their game with La Familia. Disney stars Zendaya and Trevor Jackson were courtside snapping pictures with all of their fans. Dorell Wright made his…

Thru The Lens: Episode 03 – NBA Lockout “The Lost Episode”

As the summer approaches and the NBA season comes to an end, the summer pro-am league basketball circuit begins to take off. The Drew League will begin this weekend, May 17. My first year at the Drew League was in 2011 during the NBA lockout. I was the photographer but I also captured never-before-seen video as well. I put together a video showing my perspective of the NBA lockout, including the two biggest games that year – The Drew League vs The Goodman League: “Capitol Punishment” and “The Big Payback”. Every Monday I will be releasing a new episode of Thru The Lens, exclusively on my website!
