I love watching NBA and my favourite team of the moment is Miami Heat and main reason is LeBron James. I always thought what it would be like to be a spectator in one of the regular NBA season games. Tickets don't come cheap either too.
However, one Bruneian managed to be part of a spectacle of the NBA All-Stars game as Wu Chun, being the endorser of Coca-Cola, was invited to catch the weekend game. For your info, this is the 5th time he has watched a live NBA game but he never attended an NBA All-Stars game so this trip was perhaps the most memorable one among the lot. It was long haul flight paid off with 26 hours in the air transitting from Singapore to Los Angeles to Houston.
Of course, he was excited because legendary Michael Jordan was scheduled to be there and MJ is Wu Chun's biggest idol. Sometimes being an endorser of Coca-Cola has its perks and one of them is getting good seats at the NBA matches. His dream was to play in NBA but the closest dream he got was watching it live and getting close to the action.
He even bought a limited edition Air Jordan t-shirt despite the 5 hour queue which started at 7 in the morning!! It was a nice touch to see Wu Chun bringing our Bruneian flag to the Houston NASA Johnston Space Centre where the NBA All-Stars game was held.
I hope one day I get to see a live NBA game. For now, I'm sticking to Astro to catch the games :D Images below are courtesy of Wu Chun.
