No, practices are closed to the public and have alot of security.

Awesome visuals, thanks for sharing. From the quantity of pictures you've posted, I'd imagine they would atleast remember your face, but then again like ya said there are millions of fans who want to take photos with them. Anyway, I hope you catch Kobe somehow. That would be cool.

I think I've finally gained up some confidence to introduce myself to these guys, tomorrow. A guy today who I was chillin with said that he always tries to leave a lasting impression on these guys, he introduces himself, and tries to talk with them as much as he can. He's a hawaii native (so he sees them once every two years) and he says some of them even remember him by name. I figure, for the amount of time I see them yearly, they'd all know me very well if I woulda introduced myself to them earlier. So I'm going to try and introduce myself tomorrow, and talk to them, and hopefully by the end of this year, they'll all know me. We'll see. :man1:

Just wanted to let you guys know that I waited in the lobby for 3.5 hours for Kobe to show up, and he never did. It's that hard.

Here are the rest of the pictures from the last two days. I've gotten every player but Kobe and Turner (I have a picture with Kwame but it's too dark and I don't like it so I'm going to re-do it tomorrow). I really hope I get Kobe tomorrow, he's a toughy, so we'll see. They're all starting to remember me, I'm the only fan ALWAYS there before and after practices/games. Also, these pictures should answer all of your questions about my height. No I'm not standing on a pedastool, no I'm not tippy-toeing, no they aren't bending down. Stop asking.

8) Kurt Rambis
Image

9) Andre Patterson
Image

10) Mo Mo
Image

11) Mihm
Image

12) Karl (Coby II)
Image

13) Farmar
Image

14) E. Brown
Image

15) D-Fish
Image

16) B. Shaw (that navigator is the car the coaches drive)
Image

Interesting convo with Phil (as he was walking by me):
Me: Phil, can I get a picture?
Phil: No, I don't do pictures.
Me: So does that mean I won't get a single one of you on this trip?
Phil: Not unless you get an action shot.
Me: So no chances of getting lucky?
Phil: Luck is overrated.

Notes:

-Kareem refuses to take pictures with anyone (for free)

-Kobe drives in his own car to the games/practice, rest of the team goes in a bus

-Players are probably starting to think I'm crazy

I don´t like Kobe seperating himself from others...different hotel, driving in his own car while others go with the bus...stuff like that just doesn´t fit my mentality of a companionate member of a TEAM..

Who knows the truth behind all of that? It's unfortunate, but at the end of the day, it could be for some reason that none of us know of. He's staying in the timeshare tower, so maybe he has a timeshare condo in Hawaii?

Let me tell you one thing though, Kobe does not walk about the hotel grounds (it's a big village). If he wants to get from one place to another, tower to tower, or to the village (keep in mind it's a big resort)... he drives. Yes, drives, even if it's a two-minute walk. He'd get harassed though if he did walk, so I don't blame him.

Yea, Hilton HW is huge. But then you can't blame a guy who makes tons of money to walk when he has a nice car :man1:

Is there specific time when they come out or do you just camp there?
I'm pretty much free on Thursday after 12.

Man, Kobe is a real secluded dude. He needs to try and get over that, especially the whole driving himself to practice thing.
