09 Aug Los Angeles Director of Photography Goes to the “Doc” with Turner Sports
Los Angeles Director of Photography on the Red Carpet for the NBA Awards
Drake hosted the first ever NBA Awards. Celebrity shoe cams littered the red carpet. Many awards were given, but one of the most special was the Sager Strong Award, given to a courageous and compassionate trailblazer. It was presented to Monty Williams, retired professional basketball player and coach. That’s why we were there.
Doc Knows Best
Our Los Angeles director of photography talked to many basketball greats about Williams, and had the pleasure of sitting down with Doc Rivers for a special feature. Rivers is a former NBA player and is the head coach and president of operations for the LA Clippers. He’s known in the league for his great defense. We set up at Clippers headquarters and heard Rivers speak highly of Williams’ strength and grace. Williams is currently the vice president of operations for the San Antonio Spurs and was formerly the head coach for the New Orleans Pelicans. He also played for the New York Knicks, San Antonio Spurs, Denver Nuggets, Orlando Magic and Philadelphia 76ers.
It was great working with Turner and Doc Rivers to highlight the man and award.
