Warriors at Lakers - Photos by Melina Pizano/ESPN Images - 10/13/23

October 14, 2023

I covered ESPN's new lead NBA broadcast team, Doc Rivers, Doris Burke, and Mike Breen on their debut night at the pre-season game of Golden State Warriors versus Los Angeles Lakers. Below are a few behind the scenes selects of them during pre-game and half-time. I love the stoic look Doris gave while taking her solo portrait.

I photographed the game from auxiliary, which was an interesting vantage point. I love the clean look of having only the court floor behind the players from that angle. I tried to keep the shoes from those sitting courtside out of the photos, but there's only so much one can control. While it wasn't my first NBA game it was my first time covering the Warriors and Lakers. It was great to see some legends live on the court doing what they love.
