IIn Episode 5, Dwight Howard (Houston Rockets) visits Portland on a road trip during the season. He stops at a Juvenile detention center to talk and encourage the kids. Dwight also opens up about his back surgery, his response to being called “Soft” for smiling too much and shows his overall love of life and basketball.
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
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!
