Kobe Bryant may be hurt, but that ain't stopping Charlize Theron from cheering on her Lakers!!
The Prometheus actress was seen at the Staples Center last night with a big smile on her face as she watched the Lakers take on the San Antonio Spurs, and while many folks were sad 'cuz Bryant will not be able to hoop for the next 6-9 months, Charlize didn't let that get her down.
Since the Spurs made it into the playoffs with the second best record in the western conference, it was thought that they would automatically beat LA, and even with Tim Duncan's 23 points, they still failed to win their first playoff game.
We're thinking that Theron's cheering had a lot to do with the Lakers' win. After all, what team wouldn't want to play their hardest when a hottie like Charlize has their back???

If you didn't already know, Kobe Bryant tore his Achilles tendon during Friday night's game against the Golden State Warriors, and even though he appears to be doing well now… right after he unfortunately suffered his injury, he went on a cray Facebook rant!!

It's sad to think that the Rutgers' players had to experience extreme abuse from their ex-coach Mike Rice, but if they would've had Kobe Bryant on their team to save them from the horrible attacks, then they would've been set!!
Rice was FIRED last week after he was caught bad mouthing, hitting and just being plain out evil to his team, and even though he's gone, the Lakers star has a few words to share.
We've been super happy for Magic Johnson's son, EJ, and his decision to publicly be out and proud at the age of 20!
He was spotted yesterday walking around with his boyfriend, hand-in-hand, not a care in the world — except for the love between them! We're sure he cares about that! The cherry on top of all that inspiration is that his mom and dad are extremely proud of him, being supportive in every way!
Now we're hearing that fellow Laker baller Kobe Bryant is proud of the whole family! Here's what he said:
If Kobe Bryant got invited to North Korea… would he go??
That's the question that's weighing heaving on the entire world's mind, and we finally have an answer:
These two are toooo dang ADORBz!!
Reese Witherspoon and her hubby, Jim Toth attended the Los Angeles Lakers vs. Toronto Raptors game at Staples Center on Friday night, and while everyone else goes to watch the hoop stars battle it out — the actress attends the game to give us four quarters of courtside PDA!!!
The Legally Blonde star and her talent agent lovah kissed, laughed, held hands and looked into each others eyes throughout the Lakers game, and we cannot get over how much duo is in love.
We're thinking that Reese and Jim should embrace one another a lot more because Kobe Bryant was able to lead his team into a win, which was probably caused by all the love in the air!!

It's only been a few days since the Lakers owner, Jerry Buss passed, and he's already being missed like craaaazzzzy.
On Wednesday night, Kobe Bryant took center court at the Staples Center to pay tribute to the NBA legend and to get the crowd to join him in a moment of silence, and once the lights went off… we couldn't help but tear up.
Bryant was lucky enough to deliver his speech without crying all over his warmup suit, but as soon as Magic Johnson began to show his respects toward Jerry at the ESPN studios, the water works almost went everywhere.
Dr. Buss died at 80 from kidney failure, which stemmed from complications from cancer.
The NBA will never be the same again.
Rest in peace, Jerry.
