During the crazy, free agent season, we tune into the Twitter feeds of Adrian Wojnarowski, Marc Stein, David Aldridge, Sam Amick, Marc Spears, Ken Berger and others -- but when it came to the Dwight Howard Showcase, in Los Angeles, one guy brought his "A" game to the table.
Arye Abraham is 16 years old and lives in L.A. and he took it upon himself, during the carefree summer months of youth, to stake out and report on who and what was going on in and out of the Dwight Howard presentations.
Arye took to Twitter and hammered out some of the best, tactical information regarding who and what was going on.
@brosales12 I will soon find out the location of where the dinner will actually take place.. And we will need lots of LAL support to bash it— Arye Abraham (@arye_abraham) June 30, 2013
In addition, he got the Rockets contingent, including what looks to be GM Daryl Morey, crossing the street. AMBUSH!
He also stealthily got his picture taken with some of the combatants, without them knowing he was actually there to report on their every word/move.
Nick Young came to L.A. -- Gotcha, Nick!
Anybody surprised at O.J Mayo agreeing to terms with Milwaukee should have been checking Arye's timeline.
For Hawks fans, Arye stopped and got his pic snapped with #16 pick Lucas Nogueira and #47 pick (sent to Utah) Raul Neto.
This is how a budding journalist/reporter is born -- fearless, bold and able to act on what they want to do.
Whoever gets Dwight Howard will finish second to Arye, who made friends with a ton of national and LA reports/bloggers for his efforts in providing info.
Well, he might have not made one friend:
@WojYahooNBA False, the meeting was held at the Bel Air hotel which is in the city of Los Angeles.— Arye Abraham (@arye_abraham) July 1, 2013
Looks like the original tweet was deleted. If you out-Woj Woj, you've won the internet for this crazy, crazy free agent period. Congrats to Arye, and keep an eye on this guy -- and don't have your secret meetings in L.A.
