Not sure if there was even a thread of some sort regarding this but yaaa...anyone going? I'll be there with my friend Irma (FisherChick on this board) :dance1:

Date: April 12, 2009
Time: 12PM - 5PM
Where: Los Angeles Convention Center (The Los Angeles Convention Center is conveniently located at the intersection of the Santa Monica Freeway (10) and the Harbor Freeway (110).)
Players attending: Kobe Bryant, Sasha Vujacic, Trevor Ariza, Luke Walton, Pau Gasol.

Friend told me that the first 100 people or whatever get to meet Kobe or something like that. :blink:

So yaaa..

Wonder if Sasha's improved his Spanish at all. Kobe better come with more than last year.

Also wonder if Trevor will pull any out since he is half Hispanic after all.

Sasha is learning Spanish right now. :) hes doing very well.

yes, it is free. you have to request for tix or find a place where KCAL is distributing them.



wristbands are very complicated to get a hand on. and no, its not the first 100 people there. it's every 50th person in line. they give every 50th person a colored wristband. one color for each player. you basically wont know who's line your going to be in. and if youre in a group, and youre the only one who got a wristband, you cant bring anyone else in line with you.. it'll be just you.

last year, 50,000 people went. thats A LOT. and the guys are only there for an hour. they arrive towards the end and then leave. it gets a little crowded and if youre impatient, i dont suggest you go. it could potentially piss you off. lol

sorry not true I went last year and you have to win wristbands to meet Kobe, Pau, Sasha and Ronny who went last year. This year will be the same most likely with Kobe, Pau, Sasha, Luke, & Ariza attending this year

This year was horrible compare to last year. All they had this year was people like Joel Meyers, Bill McDonald, Norm Nixon, & Patrick O'neal for anybody to meet without wristband. Huge disappointment from last year compare to Kareem, Michael Cooper, & Lisa Leslie. Thought more better players would come like that cause for Kareem, Coop, & Lisa you didn't need wristbands. Hopefully they learn to bring better people that the fans can meet without wristbands cause not many people will meet Kobe, Pau, Ariza, Luke, & Sasha.
