Portfolio Two : NBA Basketball Playoffs

The 2008 NBA Basketball Playoffs will be upon us in the next few weeks. We will find out if the West is superior or if the East has a chance or if it is all hype after all. There will be a tight race for the MVP featuring Kobe Bryant, Lebron James, Kevin Garnett, Dwight Howard and Tracy McGrady.

And let’s not forget this years rookie camp for the Rookie of the Year Award. Tim Mantoani photographed many of these future super stars, and was on location making it happen, last summer, celebrating all the up and comers: LaMarcus Aldridge, (Portland Trailblazers); Adam Morrison, (Charlotte Bobcats); Shelden Williams, (Atlanta Hawks); Brandon Roy, (Portland Trailblazers); and many others.

So who is it going to be? The Los Angeles Lakers, Boston Celtics, Phoenix Suns, Detroit Pistons, San Antonio Spurs or the Cleveland Cavaliers? We shall see. More soon.
