  • Lakers Experience 1/12/2007

    It all started with a magical phone call from the Lakers office asking me and a guest to join them in a special season ticket holder experience for the game against Orlando. So since Anna Kournikova was busy, Frenchy joined me in what seems like an experience that is surely to be cherished...

    We arrived at Staples Center around 6:30pm and met up with our Lakers representative



    He led us down thru the secret gray doors, down the elevator and to the event level, thru another 2 sets of secret doors, and we were in the tunnel where the Lakers players come out to get onto the court.




    As we were waiting for the players to get out of the locker room, the Lakers girls were doing some pre-game rituals, a new ritual is taking a picture of us before the game.



    Then we were allowed to take a picture by the court, next to where Dyan Cannon sits





    The players came out of the tunnel and gave Frenchy and I a big high 5 as they ran out of the court (sorry no pics of that, we were too busy high 5ing, and they ran too fast)...


    From the floor view, a sight of what all other teams dream of, and are jealous of...



    The pre-game, starting line up show huddle...



    Kobe...



    Time out to discuss how to work around the horrible officiating...






    View of the court from the AmEx Platinum Lounge...










    That's all the pictures, well the ones worth sharing.

    It was a great night! We got to greet the players as they ran on to the court, got to see Kareen up close, had some inspirational words with Frank Hamblen and got to see how Phil Jackson is still getting used to the hip surgery he had.

    We were treated greatly by the Lakers Organization. Many thanks to truely the greatest and most storied basketball team and one of the top sports teams ever! During halftime we were treated to a nice dessert spread of many gourmet desserts and had a chocolate overkill!!! This was truely one of the greatest nights! Hope you all have a chance at this too one day!


    p.s. (If anyone has tips on getting the blurryness out when taking pics, please PM me ehehehe its a Cannon sd630 and still tryin to get used to it, its blurry on most of the zooms, thanks!)

        Press today is so concerned with cool vs. not cool that they're starting to forget good vs. bad. I'm not sure I'll ever be "cool", but I will always tirelessly strive to be "great". - Josh Groban

                When the Lakers played at the Fabulous Forum, I got to sit behind the Lakers bench.

                Also, I've been lucky to have seen The Celtics with Larry Bird and the 76ers with Dr. J.

                Oh, and if you go to ESPN Zone at DTD, you'll catch some Lakers and ex Lakers there too. I hung out with Michael Cooper and Bill Walton there.

                  Ok so I "fixed" the pictures and did them via photobucket since it seems like I can't get picasa or webshots to work on here....enjoy!!!

                      We sat in front of Henry Winkler once back in the Forum during Lakers vs. Bulls. Center court seats, Magic Johnson, Michael Jordan, Scottie Pippen, double overtime. In my mind, I will never have another basketball experience like that one. But that was a looooooong time ago now.

                      Goof Goof...whatever it is you do to get that phone call from the Lakers' office, I need to do it.

                      GO LAKERS!

                      Except for today. Today is GO CHARGERS!

                      p.s. For bluriness, try a higher ISO and a faster shutter speed.

                        I don't care what they say about Staples being so great, the Forum to me was always the best!

                          YES! Because it too, was one of a kind! I was at a concert at the Forum and I swear I was watching the Lakers play the Celtics, up and down the court!

                            Speaking of concerts, I went to a Wings concert in the 70s there.
                            Ringo Starr, Cher, and Elton John were all in the crowd that night at the Fabulous Forum.
