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

Jordan Hangar opens in Los Angeles

AAnyone who follows Carmelo Anthony and Jordan Brand has heard of Terminal 23 – a private gym located in the heart of New York – reserved for special events, as well as private runs that include anyone from Carmelo Anthony to Chris Brown. Jordan Brand has opened up a west coast version of this iconic gym in the heart of Los Angeles, called Jordan Hangar. The old airplane hangar was transformed into a basketball court, as well as other stations that include everything from checking out new clothes or trying out your dribbling skills.

This weekend hosted 2 days of excitement – Saturday featured LA Clippers Chris Paul, while Sunday was a battle of the best high school players in Southern California. I made my way down there Sunday  and got to check out some top basketball talent from Los Angeles, The Valley, Orange County, and Inland Empire. The championship game was IE vs LA, resulting in IE taking the win. As a special surprise, NBA Finals MVP and IE native Kawhi Leonard came to congratulate the players. The venue is really amazing, anyone who gets an opportunity to visit, make sure to check it out!

Under Armour brings “Elite 24” Back to New York

One of the biggest High School basketball events in the country is the Elite 24 hosted by Under Armour. For the past few years, they have taken this tournament to Venice Beach, California. It originated in New York and this was the first year they brought it back. They had a beautiful court built right below the Brooklyn Bridge. The 4-day event was an amazing experience and I am very thankful to have been apart of this wonderful brand. Check out the pictures from each day
