(Mom note: Trey, can you make the title so it reads like “pissed and moaned?”) (Ed. note: Sure.)
Yeah, that’s right they cried like babies, but what do you expect for a “young” team? Who cares though? I got to go to a basketball game and sit on the floor. Literally. As a photographer!
I went with my dude, T.J., the Detroit photojournalist. We entered The Palace, and before I could curtsy, my prince (no, not Tayshaun) handed me a REAL camera and gave me one single instruction — “Just point and shoot.” So I did.
Of course, T.J. had no idea how amusing this directive could be, but I did. Since I was quite confident my pictures wouldn’t run in any newspapers, I figured I’d take a few shots that at least my Trey-Trey would appreciate.
My first shot was not so great. A little embarrassing, but then I realized this could be a lot of fun.
Thought Trey might like these for his birthday.
These guys looked like brothers to me.
I got better as the night went on.
These guys don’t really look like brothers.
I think this guy is pretty good.
Now a note to the Detroit Pistons: Thank you for an entertaining night. It was fun going to The Palace and being treated like a queen. And don’t worry. I’m sure you’ll mature over time.
But until you do, do what I did …“Just point and shoot.”
