Team USA in Vegas [7/21-26]
Posted July 29, 2008 - 12:21 PM
I got to meet the whole team. and a few others as well.
The first day, i just ran into the coaching staff.. it wasnt until the next morning that i got to see players. It was really fun. ALL the guys were incredible nice.. its amazing HOW different the guys are when no one's around.. which was almost everytime i met them. theyre ALL totally down to earth. maybe except Bron.
I watched them film a little of Road to Redeption. My favorite encounter was with Dwight Howard and Michael Redd. SUUUUUPER nice guys & hilarious. We gave Dwight gatorade before his work out and he totally appreciated it. you can see the gatorade bottle behind me in the picture.
uhm... TAYSHAUN PRINCE is HILARIOUS! haha. i was in the hotel casino and here comes Tayshaun. a family of 3 approaches him and goes, 'Tayshaun, can my son please have a picture with you. hes a huge fan' & Tayshaun refuses. The dad BEGS Tayshaun. Durant was there too.. so Tayshaun pushes the family next to Durant.. grabs the camera from the mom and goes, 'here, ill take the picture' :lol:
the next night, i spotted JKidd playing BalckJack at one of the tables. I wanted to talk to him so badly but im only 18. still underaged. argh. so i wrote him a note and gave it to my mom. she went up to him and gave it. haha. he was really appreciative and my mom said that everytime she saw him, he'd pull out the little note.
anyway. i ran into CP3, Dwade, Kobe and LeBron too many times that i was hiding from them. argh. i didnt want them to think i was stalking.. coz i wasnt.
i ran into: [excluding Team USA members]
Hakim Warrick [rode the elevator with him]
questions? just ask.
here are some pictures:
sorry this one's crappy.

Funny hearing that about Tayshaun, didn't know he actually had a personality, lol. He always seems pretty serious in his interviews, that's good to see though.

I see faith in your eyes
never you hear the discouraging lies
broken is the promise, betrayal
the healing hand held back by deepened nail
follow the god that failed

Dwight Howard looks like a cool dude, total goofball but cool dude, nonetheless.

Just for one day, heck, even one hour I would love to have Dwight Howard's body. I just can't imagine being that big and cut, being able to dunk with such ease and power. He also seems like a really cool guy to hang out with. I'd say I have a borderline man crush on him.
i love being a girl and loving the NBA. :lol:
we get double the fun.. we get to watch the hot players [kobe, sasha.. ect]
and still be able to enjoy the game
Dwight's body in person is hellllaaa huge. he looks bigger in person if u ask me
