Kobe Bryant, 50 Cent, Meryl Streep just hanging out together…

21 Comments

Sunday morning, as so often happens, Meryl Streep and 50 cent had the exact same thought — I’d like to watch some hoops today. Maybe see Carmelo Anthony go off against the Los Angeles Lakers’ “defense.” And the Knicks are all into having celebs at their games.

So they did, Streep and 50 cent were seated next to each other courtside at the Knicks win Sunday over the Lakers at Madison Square Garden. They even were laughing and holding hands at points (seriously, I could not make that up).

After the game they hung out with Kobe Bryant for a while and posted to Instagram. Because of course they did.

Against the Pacers last night, James Ennis missed all three of his 3-point attempts… that counted. And he makes this one after fouling out?

Mike Conley more than picked up the slack to lead the Grizzlies to victory.

The Pelicans are effectively out of the playoff race, but Dante Cunningham and Anthony Davis are still competing — even if it looks a little silly.

That tone and a big game from DeMarcus Cousins (29 points, 16 rebounds, six assists) led to a 121-118 win over the Mavericks.

Goran Dragic is very good at alley-oops.

Too good.

With a “shot” like that falling, the Heat trounced the Knicks, 105-88.

Hawks’ Tim Hardaway Jr. kneed in the groin while defending 76ers (video)

Since trading for him, the Hawks have gotten Tim Hardaway Jr. to buy in defensively.

After this help defense on 76ers center Richaun Holmes cost him dearly, I wouldn’t blame Hardaway if he gave up on the endeavor entirely.
