Celebs Take on the Lakers vs. Celtics GamePublished by Dior Noir on Friday, June 18, 2010 at 1:00 pm.
So how bout them Lakers? As you probably know by now from every single LA fan who wont let you hear the last of it, Kobe and ‘em had a game seven victory over the Boston Celtics to win the NBA finals last night.
It’s safe to say no one is really surprised about the win, but there were a lot of celeb fans that helped cheer on their team at LA’s Staple Center. Snoop stepped out with his son Cordell to show some California love. The rapper reportedly had $20,000 riding on the game, in a bet with Donnie Wahlberg, and the money won is going to charity.
Even Usher was there. I bet Tameka was watching the game just to try to spot him looking “yummy.”
Other off-court highlights from the game:
Ron Artest may not give a what about fans, since he’s known for fighting them, but after he hit the 3-point shot that secured the win he thanked: “everybody in my hood,” “my doctor” and “my psychiatrist – she really helped me relax a lot.” Whatever works! Dude even announced he has a single, “Champions” coming out. Yeah, because we know how much a music side hustle worked for Kobe. *side eye*
Former Laker Shaq put aside his differences and gave his well wishes. He Tweeted: “Congratulations Kobe, u deserve it. U played great. Enjoy it man enjoy it. I know what ur saying ‘Shaq how my a– taste.”
If the giant could do it, whether or not you’re a Laker’s fan, you have to give it to the team for pulling off their 16th NBA Championship in the history of the organization. Congrats!
