I'm a Miami Heat maniac, and Dwyane Wade is my guy. Well, he didn't hit town. The next best thing did.
Correction, THE BEST did. 4-time MVP. 2-time NBA Champion. 2-time Olympic gold medalist. AND STILL COUNTING. LeBron James in Manila for his Witness History tour.
Never planned on going, as I surely didn't bother joining the thousands of people lining up for the tickets. Kept away from the scalpers too. I hated the fact that they were making a killing out of the FREE tickets given them by Nike. So, I was totally content in letting this event pass by.
But then a good friend asked me at the eve of the big day, if I wanted to go. When I found out he was actually giving away a free ticket, of course I said yes!
And so I trooped to the venue with my Canon EOS M, hoping to get decent photos of the event. Turned out the free ticket was for the Lower Box, which is great in itself, but for shooting purposes, it was quite.... far from ideal. Anyway, I have absolutely no complaints. I came there for The King. Taking photos was secondary.
Here's what I was able to capture. Witnessing LeBron, shooting from sixty rows out. I thought it'd be nice to break my photoblog lull with this set.
KIM CAPIRAL, YOU DA MAN!!! THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU! I owe you. Thanks to Trina too!
A lot of fun. Come back soon, LeBron! And bring Dwyane with you.
LET'S GO HEAT!!!
