It's definitely not uncommon to see some of Hollywood's biggest celebs getting front-row seats to watch the Los Angeles Lakers at Staples Center!

Unfortunately, those celebs haven't really had much to watch this season!

Jake Gyllenhaal found that out the hard way as he got courtside seats and watched in horror as the Kobe Bryant-less lakers got CRUSHED by the Minnesota Timberwolves!

Too bad his model girlfriend Alyssa Miller wasn't there to comfort him!

Seriously, we haven't seen a murder this bad since End of Watch! Or maybe Zodiac. Perhaps Jarhead? Wow, Jake has been in a lot of movies with murder!

Well this is awkward!!

After years of rooting for the Los Angeles Lakers at Staples Center, it looks like David Beckham has moved on and has a new team in his life!

The former soccer stud was spotted in the arms of his new love as he sat court side at Barclays Center to watch the Brooklyn Nets take on LeBron James and the Miami Heat!

While there's no question that Becks was simply attended a highly anticipated matchup, it was still a bit strange to see him rooting for a team that isn't wearing purple and gold!

And to make things even weirder, David ran into Laker legend and Los Angeles Dodgers owner Magic Johnson at the game!

We guess they both just needed some space from the Kobe Bryant-less Lakeshow!

Ch-ch-check out more pics of Becks at the Nets game (below)!

| Filed under: ZportzBasketballKobe BryantMichael Jordan

tracy mcgrady says kobe bryant is harder to guard than michael jordan

Remember when Tracy McGrady was one of the best players in the NBA? We know, it's been a while!

But the superstar-turned-benchwarmer once again found his name in the headlines when he made a little splash with some comments he made!

T-Mac was recently spotted at the airport, and reporters were dying to know who he thought was the toughest player he ever had to guard, and he said Kobe Bryant!

Now normally this wouldn't be a big deal, but once upon a time, Tracy also had to guard another fairly famous shooting guard by the name of Michael Jordan. Ever heard of him?

Well not only does T-Mac think Kobe is better, he says it's not even close:

Kobe Bryant & Vanessa List Their Coastal House — Here's Your Chance To Live Like A Baller!

| Filed under: For Reals EstateKobe Bryant

kobe bryant vanessa coastal house for sale

Kobe Bryant & Vanessa are ready for a change!

What better way to do that than to put up that old and busted house of yours for something fresh and new?? Except in this case, the house isn't old and busted — it's a mansion fit for people who can afford to part ways with $8.599 million!

Are you ready to hear what's inside??

It has a half-acre and was built in 1997! There is an 850-square-foot gym, a hair salon, a paneled office/library with a shark tank, a theater, four bedrooms,seven bathrooms, and two-stories. Don't forget the swimming pool, spa, lawn, a fire pit complete with outdoor kitchen!

The house was last sold for $1.7 million in 1997, and all of the remodeling was done by Kobe and Vanessa — so we definitely agree that the value has gone up! Plus he's famous, and who wouldn't want to live in a famous person's house?

Break out those checkbooks, bitches!!

Oh, and they're probably selling the place because Kobe found his calling in making fans cry! He's going to tour the world!

JK!
