It was a crazy weekend for LA as the NBA All-Star weekend took over the streets of Downtown. From gifting suites and photo shoots to parties and events there were tons of things to get into (if you’re on the VIP list).
Thankfully, I work for Attic which means I’m in the building! (We here, baby!) Luckily for you, I have a camera so you can get the behind the scenes coverage to make you feel like you were right there with us! I hope you enjoy the photos!
SHAQ x DUB Magazine photo shoot
A friend of mine who
works at runs DUB was working with Attic affiliate Michael Vincent in a photo shoot with one of LA’s finest the Big Diesel, Shaq. Yeah, I know he plays for the worst team in the league but he did bring 3 banners to Staples so we always give love to the homie when he comes back to his LA crib.
This was like Pimp My Ride on steroids
Superman told me he was pursuing his modeling career once he hangs it up
Attic seriously got the inside behind the scenes coverage
Big thanks to the Big Diesel, DUB Magazine and Michael Vincent for taking care of me & the Attic fam!
* Seeing Shaq reminded me of these days…
DEUCE x FLY SOCIETY – NBA ALL-STAR WEEKEND GIFTING PARTY
After the Shaq shoot, I hopped in the elevator @ Watermarke Towers to the penthouse on the 35th floor for the Deuce x Fly Society gifting party. There were NBA stars, NFL players and industry must-knows all over the place for a memorable open bar event.
A gifting party thrown by Deuce, Fly Society and Native? With Young & Reckless in the mix? I was ready for a great time!
Athletes like Shaun Phillips, Willis McGahee, Kirk Morrison, Sheldon Williams, Terrell Smith filled up this star studded event. Not going to list every face, you’ll recognize them.
Music provided by the infamous DJ Red Alert… j/k. He was rocking a crispy UNDFTD fitted though!
We fly high, no lie. You know it…
But more importantly… We stay #OneLevelAbove
35 floors up!
Not going to name drop but if you’re in the industry you’ll recognize these cats
The homies from Artist Creation were holding it down! Representing SD!
Young & Reckless came straight from the Fantasy Factory to gift the VIPs in attendance
Everyone was enjoying free watches, clothes, shoes and drinks all night!
My gifts didn’t fit in a bag…
Special thanks to the Deuces and Fly Society families for allowing Attic to attend your amazing event!
NBA ALL-STAR WEEKEND 2011 JAM SESSION
To wrap up my exhausting NBA All-Star weekend, I headed over to the Jam Session at the LA Convention Center. A fun-filled day of hanging with NBA stars and checking out different exhibits was the perfect way to end the weekend.
We here, baby!

The 2011 All-Stars were getting their practice in at the Adidas Center Court
I ran into Kenyon Martin and Dwayne Wade too! Wait. That’s Wade right?! LOL!
Only fitting that the G.O.A.T. was in attendance as well
NBA got their idea for a NBA 2K11 booth from our tournament! You’re welcome, David Stern.
ESPN Radio 710 was covering the event and shouting out the Attic all day

Something for the whole family
