Chris Paul Serves Dinner for Charity

LLos Angeles Clipper Chris Paul hosted a diner in Beverly Hills to raise money for his foundation “CP3 Foundation”. The dinner was open to anyone who wanted to donate the big price for the donation – but it was very well worth it! The servers for the night were a celebrity cast that included everyone from Blake Griffin, DeAndre Jordan, Chris Paul, Baron Davis, Justin Turner and more. Check out some of the red carpet pictures below!

Cassy Athena takes pictures as an official NBA photographer

One of my dreams was to be a photographer in the NBA. I was given this opportunity by Fox Sports. I not only was documenting the experience of being at a LA Clippers home game, but Fox was also going to document my experience of shooting my first game. I had the most amazing time! I got to Staples Center a few hours before tip-off to make myself familiar with the venue and everything going on. Sitting on the floor under the basket was a surreal experience. Getting to look out at and see thousands of people was amazing. After my nerves calmed down, I felt right at place and in my element of shooting a basketball game. With the help of my friend DeAndre Jordan, I was able to capture one of the coolest pictures I’ve taken of him, Blake and Ronny on the bench. After the game I talked with DeAndre and Blake about my first time shooting a game and they were very supportive and took pictures to be apart of it as well! I look forward to being apart of more NBA events, it was great!

Brandon Jennings presented with painting at Clipper Game

The Milwuakee Bucks were in town playing the LA Clippers. A few months ago I painted Brandon Jennings a birthday gift – a portrait of him. It was also a fun time at the game – including one of the biggest plays of the season – a lob from Jamal Crawford to Blake Griffin dunk!

Clippers host Pumpkin Carving contest for game tickets

Around Halloween last year, Fox Sports West hosted a pumpkin carving contest. I don’t have much experience with carving pumpkins, but I gave it a try and ended up carving a portrait of Blake Griffin on a pumpkin – which ended up winning the contest! My tickets arrived and I headed to Staples Center to watch the Houston Rockets take on the LA Clippers. Overall had a great experience!
