I was passing by on the street and I saw this guy doing tricks with the basketballs at the traffic lights. I already knew that the FIBA ​​contest was open, so the moment I saw him in the middle of the cars, throwing the balls with the Lakers' shirt, I immediately made the connection. After the photos, we talked for a while. He is an Argentine immigrant who intends to live in Brazil. He is currently living in a slum near that area and said that he dreamed of an opportunity to be a globe troter in the USA. During the time I photographed him, only one person rewarded him with a coin, a little boy in the back seat of a car.
