Sunday was not a good day for the Los Angeles Lakers as they went on the road and got thumped by the New York Knicks inside of Madison Square Garden. Still, the day wasn’t all that bad for Kobe Bryant as after a stare down earlier in the game, he came out after things were over to embrace rapper 50 Cent in a nice show of affection.
Not only was Kobe not at all upset about the Lakers loss so soon after it had happened, but he embraced a guy decked out in New York Jets apparel. You can applaud 50 Cent’s dedication to New York, but it’s not as though basketball is a country music sport. It’s been called a hip-hop game, so it’s really not to much to ask for a guy to show up in Knicks gear, especially when the alternative is Jets gear.
But hey, at least it wasn’t as bad as Spike Lee’s hat — or whatever the heck that was.
