Thru The Lens: Hanging with Larry Sanders

NNBA Star Larry Sanders has recently been the talk of many headlines with his decision to leave the NBA in the middle of his 4 year contract of $44 million. Many people have questioned his decision, which he explained a small piece of why he left in recent interview online.

Within a week of that video being released, I met up with Larry in Beverly Hills, CA, to hang out and take some pictures. After talking with him and hearing more about his story and his personal life, we decide to film some footage to get to know HIM better as a person and not just a basketball player.

This is the first video of many more to come! Larry Sanders is a really awesome person and I’m glad I had the opportunity to get to know him better. Check out the episode and the photo gallery below!

Ball is Life hosts All American Highschool game

With the 2013-2014 basketball season coming to an end, there was one final showcase game held this past weekend in Long Beach, CA. Ball is Life held their 4th annual showcase game for Highschool Talent. Most people know of the Under Armour Elite 24, Adidas McDonalds All American and the Jordan Brand Classic. Although held throughout different dates during the season, those 3 showcase games have almost identical rosters. Ball is Life tries to go beyond that roster – to showcase the top talent that is sometimes overlooked and underrated. Although many of the players in this game have also played in the other major high school showcase games, there were some additional faces that were seen for the first time.

Unfortunately, Cliff Alexander, Jordan McLaughlin and Kelly Oubre were not able to play for various reason. Other than that, the players who did play certainly put on a great game. The halftime performance was by up-and-coming rapper, Casey Veggies. Overall the event was well put together and I look forward to seeing how it grows in years to come!
