I shot my first NBA game last night, the Washington Wizards against the Memphis Grizzlies. Granted it was a preseason game, but I was psyched and pleasantly surprised when the players actually played rather than just running up and down the court and doing their best not to get hurt. Now, I’m going to be honest and admit that I don’t know any famous basketball players except for maybe three obvious ones (Carmelo Anthony, because I went to school with him, LeBron and Kevin Garnett…oh, and Shaq of course…), but my boyfriend briefed me the night before the game on the players with some notoriety and I faked it as a savvy sports shooter. The game was great, close right up until the end, and the Wizards beat the Grizzlies 101 to 92. I even got a few frames of Allen Iverson (and I now know what he looks like) making the fans at the Siegel Center happy by signing a few autographs. I’ll spare you the captions on these, since the sports guys at the paper still make fun of my sports captions, but enjoy!
