Last week I had the privilege of covering the McDonald's All American Games in Chicago. The games feature the top high school players in the country. Magic Johnson, Michael Jordan, Kobe Bryant, LeBron James, Chris Paul, Kevin Durant, and Derrick Rose have all played in the game, so you can imagine excitement level for me to capture these young stars. Each day was filled with excitement and moments to shoot. Day 1 started with the arrival of the players getting their jerseys and hanging out in the Adidas room. The game jerseys and shoes were on display once you walked in. Day 2 was practice with NBA scouts watching the players every move. On day 3 the Chicago Theater hosted the Powerade Jam Fest which consisted of a 3 point shoot-out and (my personal favorite) dunk contest. The final day was the big game at the United Center. It was my second time being in the arena but last time I was way up in the bleachers for a Drake concert lol. This time I was on the floor court-side capturing the game. The week went by fast but I enjoyed every moment. Even got to meet Jalen Rose after the game. Stayed a few more days afterwards to explore the city and hang out with my uncle. Special thanks to SLAM Magazine and Adidas for the opportunity. Check out the video below that me and Fred put together of our time documenting the week.
