Want a Kobe Bryant Autograph? Then Get Ready for the Hunt!


The Nike 3 on 3 basketball tournament is this upcoming weekend and it’s one of the best summer events for southern california fans to come and enjoy. This year, Nike has been cool enough to provide us with a Booth, so we thought we’d have a little fun at the event. Along with sending out our camera crew, reporters and bloggers to cover the event, we are going to be hosting a special activity so that everyone there, not just the players, can enjoy their time at LA Live.

*August 5th Update – http://www.lakersnation.com/ge​tting-kobe-bryant-to-autograph​-your-stuff-is-easy-this-weeke​nd/2011/08/05/ *

Thanks to Panini America & Panini Authentic, and their Submit Your Own Program, Lakers Nation is able to offer the prize of getting your gear signed by Kobe Bryant (of course within reason – no contracts, marriage licenses or other obscene things you are thinking of). We’re talking your favorite pair of Nikes, Posters, T-Shirts, Jerseys, Books, & Basketballs!


How to Win – Let the Hunt Begin

Basically, we’re doing a scavenger hunt on Twitter.com/LakersNation around LA Live and some parts of Downtown Los Angeles. At about 10:00a on Saturday morning, we will be handing out envelopes to participants for this event. Starting at 11am and ending at 3pm, we will be tweeting clues on where Panini Basketball Cards are located. Your goal, if you choose to accept it, is to walk around and collect these cards to accumulate points. At 3pm, we will start accepting your envelopes with the cards you’ve collected throughout the day to count up your score.

*Warning – Please look for @LAKERSNation and nothing else for Twitter Clues this weekend. If you don’t see our Crest, then it’s a pretender.*

Points per card information will be provided later this week in a separate post.

In event of a tie, the entries will be tossed in a hat and drawn randomly to determine the winner and order of 1st, 2nd and 3rd place. The winner will be announced on Monday morning through our Youtube.com/LakersNationDotCom Channel, so you if you haven’t subscribed yet, go for it.
