Another first: NBA (for charity)
Just a few days after my last sports video adventure, I got to cover an NBA-sanctioned charity basketball game at the Key Arena. Normally, this wouldn’t be a bigger deal than players showing up to support a great cause – which is always a good thing – but this is Seattle. And in 2008, the Seattle Supersonics were whisked away (well, as the fans say) to some far off land called Oklahoma. So basketball fans in this city are still a little hurt, and miss their team a lot.
Here, they tell their story.
(Look for cameos from former University of Washington player Isaiah Thomas and Isaiah Stanback of the Seahawks.)
And this is what it looked like from the court line on a 35mm lens. It’s the only place to watch basketball, in my opinion.
