Former Lakers star Michael Cooper made an appearance at Dr. Liu’s Optometry practice in Rowland Heights. The event was a private meet and greet just for patients and friends.
As patients and friends arrived we were all required to check in with the receptionist since all of the invited guests were on a list. We were only allowed a few items per person because Michael was only going to be there a short time. Coop had everyone entertained by joking and making conversation with fans.
