Lakers celebrate Christmas with local kids

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

Matt Barnes & Snoop Dogg host 3rd Annual Athletes vs Cancer game

BBack to back to back! As the 3rd annual Athletes vs Cancer game ended, Team Snoop was victorious for the third year in the row over Team Matt. After the event has continued to grow each year, UCLA’s Drake Stadium proved to be a perfect venue to host the game. The celebrities and athletes fueled by the city put on a show for the ages. Both teams were packed with stars, Kevin Durant, DeAndre Jordan, Eric Bledsoe, Swaggy P were front runners for Team Barnes. While Chuck Liddell, John Wall, Baron Davis and Kenneth Faried held it down for team Snoop. It sure didn’t look like the NBA stars had a hard time transitioning their talents, as their athleticism was on full display. Faried looked more like an NFL receiver than a NBA forward! John Wall backed up his claim as the fastest player in the NBA with ease. With other stars such as Wiz Khalifa, Ray J and Lakers #2 draft pick D’Angelo Russell in attendance, it was truly a star studded event – but never lost focus of its core meaning. All the people were there to support Barnes’ non-profit foundation Athletes vs Cancer. Barnes started the foundation in 2008 after losing his mother to cancer. For the last 3 years he has hosted this game, as well as other events, to raise money and awareness. The proceeds from the game will go towards supporting those that continue to fight the battle vs cancer on a daily basis! Be sure to check out pictures below!

JaVale McGee hosts 2nd Annual JugLife Celebrity Game

JJaVale McGee has been busy in the offseason with signing to a new team but he still finds time to raise money and awareness for the less fortunate. JaVale started a movement called #JugLife to bring awareness to drink more water and live a healthier lifestyle. Last year, he threw his first annual celebrity softball game, which raised money towards building water wells in Uganda. This year he hosted his 2nd game at UCLA and it included stars like Klay Thompson, Nick Young, Matt Barnes, Kenneth Faried, Jordan Clarkson, Chanel Iman, Andre Roberson, Hannah Stocking, Laura Govan, Stevie J and more.

Klay Thompson’s younger brother Trayce is a professional baseball player with the White Sox. Just this past week he scored his first homerun. Klay came out and showed that he’s not the only Thompson with baseball skills – he scored multiple homeruns during the game! It was super hot outside but everyone was in good spirits and it was a lot of fun! Check out the gallery below

Nick Young plays in local summer league

WWhen you think about summer basketball leagues, names like the Drew League, Chi League, Seattle Pro Am, AEBL and Goodman league come to mind. These are the top leagues in the nation – but there are also hundreds of smaller leagues and tournaments going on year round. I stopped by a small church league in Los Angeles to snap some pictures and Nick Young ended up coming by to play. Always nice to see good competition all over! Check out the photos below
