Harrison Barnes greets fans in Northridge

IIt’s always fun when fans get an opportunity to meet and greet their favorite athletes – today Los Angeles had the pleasure of having NBA Champion Harrison Barnes come through to sign autographs! Adidas set up an area at the Northridge Mall to try out their new sneakers and meet HB. If you’ve never met Harrison, he’s one of the most humble and personable guys around! I had a fun time hanging out and capturing all the interactions! Check out the pics below!

Drew League Playoffs kick off with upsets

TThe Drew League playoffs officially kicked off last weekend. There were upsets left and right – teams that were expected to go through didn’t, while other teams that weren’t on the radar rose to the occasion. Saturday was filled with a lot of excitement.

Coming from the team USA game in Vegas the night before where Paul George had a horrible injury, it was understandable that NBA players might not want to continue playing immediately the next day. James Harden and DeMar DeRozan were on the sidelines checking out the action, as well as Dorell Wright. La Familia was missing DeMar, JR Smith and Ron Artest. It hurt them and they took the loss to the Jaguars. Next up was Nick Young’s team – he did play, but without Paul George or Gilbert Arenas, they too fell to Hank’s Houdini’s All-Stars. The next game was a classic rematch of the two teams responsible for the past 5 years of championships – Citi Team Blazers vs The Clozers (formerly LAUNFD) This was an extremely close game but it came down to the Blazers taking the win. Sunday was the next round of playoffs which knocked out most of the teams. The teams left that will compete for the championship are Cheaters 1 vs Houdini’s All-Stars and Cheaters 2 vs COA. You don’t want to miss the final games! It will be great basketball

Team USA Las Vegas Scrimmage

FFriday night was the first scrimmage for Team USA. The game started off good, as this was the big return game of Derrick Rose. The energy in the building was great – as everyone in the building cheered for every basket. There were no sides, this was just all Americans coming together to represent USA Basketball. The first half was solid, with lots of exciting plays. To end the first half, Damian Lillard hit nearly a full court buzzer beating shot that got the crowd at an all time high for excitement. The third quarter continued with great action and finally the fourth quarter. Paul George went down with a horrible leg injury – the bone broke right in half upon landing after his attempt to block a layup. It was hard to witness but Paul George is one of the strongest players I’ve met – mentally he will come back and be greater than ever. To see the reaction pictures of the players after Paul’s injury, click here.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to a speedy recovery. To see the pictures from the game, click the photo gallery below!
