Camera Roll Chronicles: 2018 NBA Champions
by Julie Phayer
Bonus behind-the-scenes photos and videos from the night the Dubs captured the 2018 NBA Championship.
When you’re covering a Championship celebration, a lot of content gets lost in the shuffle. You’re simultaneously taking photos and videos, posting on multiple social platforms, wondering how you can be in three places at once, hoping the WiFi works, and trying to enjoy the moment - all while doing your best to keep your phone protected from the gallons of champagne spraying around you. I took roughly 200 photos and videos the night we won the 2018 Championship, but not all of them were posted for one reason or another. So, instead of having all of this content stay on my camera roll, I’m sharing it with Dub Nation. Plus, Championship content never gets old. Enjoy!
