Eloi: Second trip to the US (first one in Chicago 15 years ago). He's a doctor in Abidjan/Ivory Coast.
Used to play national Basketball competition with Abidjan University from 1975 to 1985. Huge bball fan. Very excited about the trip and all the activities.
His son Paul is 13 years old. First time he takes the plane and leaves Ivory Coast. Bball fan as well. Seems very impressed by this experience.
Had fun at the Space Center. Party was terrific. Amazing experience to be able to access the NASA buildings.
First time paul and eloy had the opportunity to visit such a big Aquarium
great knowledge of NBA history/legend players. were impressed by arena size. first time to be personally attending an All-Star event instead of watching it on TV.
really impressed by the Jam Session: player's appearances, music, number of attractions, fans.. Spent some time at the NBA Store, buying stuff for their whole family. First time they can see so many basketball-related activities in the such a big place. Really appreciated show as a whole on Saturday Night (size of the arena, entertainment, players performances).
Had a great time during pregame party and very excited during the game. Really appreciated to be part of the happy few attending such an event.
