Graphic designer - Charlie Edmiston has been a life long fan. He lived near Kobe Bryant as a child and remembers it well. He used to live 5 minutes from my house and would sometimes practice on the courts of my old high school. When asked about his favorite fan moment he quickly responds with being at game 4 of the Western Conference Finals against the Kings in 2002. 8th row with my dad, as Robert Horry hit a 3 to win. It was very epic.
With the NBA season in full swing we sought out some diehard L.A. Lakers and Clippers fans to show us some team spirit and share their thoughts on this exciting season. All photos by Nanette Gonzales.
