Dwyane Wade, Chris Paul in NYC

12 08 2010

I’ve written before about how unique interviews opportunities arise in this crazy city. Two days ago, SLAM asked me if I’d be willing to go to the Foot Locker on 125th St. the next day to interview Dwyane Wade and Chris Paul about their participation in the ongoing World Basketball Festival. I quickly agreed (how often do I get the chance to talk to them since I’m not a beat reporter?) and sped off to the Locker at around Happy Hour time yesterday.

The scene was chaotic. Dozens of people formed a line outside Foot Locker and many, many more dozens of folks were already inside an hour before D-Wade and CP3 arrived. A huge mess of kids were in the middle of a basketball court-like area near the front of the store, all eagerly awaiting two of the biggest and baddest stars in the NBA. Yet the interview didn’t take place there. It was on a bus just outside the store. Check it out.
