Is that Andre Patterson? He looks blazed out of his face.

Kobe is really smart with his exit strategies. I don't blame him, its pure madness when he steps outside near fans.

Awesome pics Jauno, I love your shirt, "You're Number Juan". :mhihi: That convo with Phil was funny too, sounds like him alright. Also, not surprised Kobe drives his own car, hasn't he been doing that like forever? Not good for team chemistry IMO, but I don't think Kobe really cares about that much. Last night if you looked at his face he really didn't seem too enthusiastic about being there, on the bench he was shaking his head a lot and had a smirk on his face, and it didn't look like a good one. He was barely even watching the game or cheering for the young guys either, I looked for his reactions a lot. Could be cause it's a preseason game, could be because Lamar and Luke were out, I don't know, but I hope he starts caring when the first game of the season starts, and I think he will.

17) Jerry Buss

18) Phil's "Action Shot" #1 (blurry)
Image

19) MAAAAMMMBBAAAA :jam2: I got it!
Image

Story behind Kobe's picture: As he was walking to his car, I basically asked him, amongst a group of about 10 people, for a picture. He said only one picture, and I jumped right next to him and my cousin took the shot, and everyone else was left picture/autograph-less. Sad, I know, even Kobe's bodyguard was saying "ONLY ONE ONLY ONE!" Just happy I got it.

What's left?

-A new picture with Kwame (or else I'll just upload my old crappy one)
-Larry Turner
-Better picture of Phil
-Maybe some more coaches or Kareem
-Autographs

That's awesome. Kobe actually put his arm around you, one of the very few to do so (I'm bored, I notice things). Diggin' his T-shirt, too.

That's awesome you finally got Kobe's.

Is Phil looking over at you? Looks like he's going to come over there and smack you with his cane.

And honestly...how many girls did Buss have with him?

You bet he is. I've ran in to him about 10 different times this trip, and each time I've thrown a jab at him and he's thrown a jab back. If anyone remembers me from this trip, it'll probably be Phil (and Crittenton, Cookie, and Lamar - I've seen them the most this trip). This morning, he even came over and said hello to me and I asked if he thought I was crazy, and he said he's seen much worse. Then, later on, when I took that action photo, he waved afterword (missed it). He still refuses to take a picture with me, though.

He's hilarious. Just as sarcastic and blunt as he is with reporters.

Only one! She was a busty brunette, I'd say around 22. :mhihi:

It took hours and hours of waiting, so boring, but definitely worth it.

How do you always know what hotels they're staying at?

Shouldn't you be in school? :man3:

How much did that trip cost all together if you had to guess?


All in all great pics. Thanks for sharing, your a real lucky dude

They stayed here two years ago and they signed a contract to stay here for awhile.

:freak2: I should be doing alot of things, doesn't mean I always do them. Plus, I get straight A's, so missing a week of school won't hurt.

Alot. That's all you need to know.

I thought the picture quality would be so bad because I was using a digital zoom, but it turned out pretty nice I guess. Leica does price. I wish I would've gotten SLR though.

I'm going to take a lot more pictures tomorrow (Hopefully, not lazy enough).

Enjoy :man1:

20) Saved the BEST for last (Kwame) :mhihi:

Hope you guys enjoyed the pictures. I suffered long waiting periods and humiliation to get all of these, but it was worth it, I'll admit. I slept in this morning so I couldn't get any more pictures. Now I'm off to the airport and back to LA. Thankfully, I'll be home in time for the game tonight on KCAL!

Stay classy Honolulu. :jam2:

Dude, you are a true fan. You hung in there and got the pics. I stopped asking ball players for pictures because of the bad attitudes I'd get. Even the scrubs would power trip sometimes. I have mad respect for you. A job well done!

Nice Juan, thanks for posting! :jam2:

That "You're Number Juan" shirt is sweet! :man10:

How tall are you man? You compare pretty evenly to all the non-centers in height.
