TThe Lakers players and Lakers girls got together with local kids in the community to celebrate Christmas with some fun activities at the Lakers Practice facility. The kids first got a chance to ice skate with the Lakers girls for some icey fun! Then they made their way over to the basketball court to take a picture with Kobe Bryant. The rest of the team was set up around the gym at different stations that the kids got to visit and participate in different drills – from shooting to passing and more! It was a fun event and it was great seeing the entire Lakers team giving back! Check out the photos below
FFor anyone looking for interesting, new and exciting sneakers, All Star weekend had a bunch of new surprises and colorways. Aside from the launch of the Kobe X’s and the Curry 1s, you could find the players wearing custom colorways and upcoming releases. Kanye West also released his first shoe with Adidas during all star weekend. Check out the pictures of some of the kicks around All Star weekend!
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!
