IDG World Expo announced today that L.A. professional basketball stars and
video game enthusiasts Corey Maggette and Derek Fisher will participate in a
video game competition at the inaugural Entertainment for All(TM) Expo (E for
All(TM)), scheduled for October 18-21, 2007, at the Los Angeles Convention
Center. Corey and Derek will appear at 3pm on Friday, October 19, to go
head-to-head on one of E for All’s gamer stages. E for All Expo is open to the
general public, and all attendees are invited to catch the action with Corey and
Derek on the 19th.
Corey and Derek will also take on all-star cyber-sportsman, Johnathan
"Fatal1ty" Wendel, known also as the "Michael Jordan of professional gaming."
The competition will be an ultimate showdown between two of professional
basketball’s best versus the gaming world’s elite.
"Getting to compete against Corey and Fatal1ty at E for All is an opportunity
I couldn’t pass up," said Fisher. "Playing video games has always been a cool
way for me to hone my competitive skills off the court. I have fun when I play,
but I still play to win. I can’t wait to test my skills out against these guys!"
"Corey Maggette and Derek Fisher’s appearance is a perfect example of what E
for All is all about – a unique, fun experience for anyone who loves video
games, from professional athletes and world-class gamers, to parents, kids,
students, industry professionals and everyone in-between," said Mary Dolaher,
CEO, IDG World Expo. "We can’t wait to see Corey and Derek in action and look
forward to welcoming them to the country’s premiere video game event."
