photographer and storyteller and has taken thousands of photos of everything basketball and beyond. >> the travels, the hikes, everything we decide to do on a particular day and we have everything documented for our sake. amanda: jimenez has had no professional training but back in 2015, when he was a teenager battling depression, he picked up a camera to help him view life through a different lens. ever since, he has worked on his craft and says he's blessed to capture such monumental moments courtside. >> i put everything that i have into photography. that is my heart and soul. amanda: their relationship is real on and off the court, regardless of any celebrity status or social media following. >> we are doing something different in our own little lane. i don't know. it's really special. amanda: friendship, photography, and the nba finals. >> one of my big goals was to be able to shoot an entire season
and go to the nba finals and really document history. amanda: they hope to one day look back on decades of photos, stories, and shared experiences, understanding their unwavering support of one another is part of the big picture. >> we have been friends for a long time. let's tell both of our stories and build together and see what that looks like. amanda: abc 7 news. dan: abc 7 is the exclusive home of the nba finals. we will have pregame and postgame coverage throughout the series. it tips off tomorrow night at 5:00 with the dubs on the pregame show. and then it is nba countdown at 5:30. game one caps off at 6:00, followed by after the game until 10:00. so we have a big lineup for you tomorrow for the warriors game one of the nba finals. let's move on. aggressive firefighting and caer weathertis ve

probationary period of one year, at the end of which if successful, the department will be returned back to local control. but not everyone is convinced. >> we can look back to last year when they were mired in a racist and sexist text messaging scandal. we can look back to the year before during the torchlight uprising. tim: he believes despite the years of oversight, opd has not fundamentally changed. he says he wants to see the city divert money from the department's budget. >> we are in a housing crisis in the city of oakland. there are thousands of people who need critical support. quite frankly, when it comes to law enforcement, i think our money is better spent elsewhere. tim: armstrong says he knows building trust within the community can take time but he says he remains determined to do it. >> true transparency is not just about releasing video. it is about when you are changing policy that is going to
