I was at Arden mall yesterday, all of a sudden I see a crowd gathering around a big ass dude right in the middle of the mall. I was like who the hell is this?
It turned out to be Adam Prada. It was some PR event so they were handing out magazines and balls, so I got his autograph.
I was just walking around the mall and ran into a few more guys:
Salmons: He was really active. Not that tall, maybe 6'4. He's wierd looking. He looks a little biggeer than last yr. He seemed like an okay guy, not totally into it but he was being social.
Shareef: He was sitting behind the security desk in front JcPenney. Totally lifeless. He responded to every question with one word answers like "yeh" and "uh-huh." He said his rehab was going good and he is fasting (he's muslim) throughout practices and stuff. He really seemed like someone who didn't want to be there.
Coach Theus: He has a million dollar smile. Energy and charisma ooze from this guy. He started calling me out about my Stanford sweatshirt and we had a little chat about his college days. He was saying he's really optimistic. He came off as a really good guy and really talkative totally the opposite of when I met Coach Muss.
K Mart: He was their with a buddy and we started bugging them about how he looked like Kevin's brother.
: But they were cool about it. Kevin seemed to be having a good time being out and with the fans. I've met him before and he seemed like a fun guy both times.
Yeh, nice surprise at the mall. Got some autographs, took some pictures. Pretty cool day.
