Oh to be young, dumb, and in love again!
Of course we're talking about the Los Angeles Lakers, who had a matchup agains the Cleveland Cavaliers last night in El Lay!
Noted Lakeshow enthusiast Patrick Schwarzenegger and his girlfriend Taylor Burns made their way to Staples Center to take in the action, however, from the looks of it they weren't really watching the game!
The couple was lip-locked throughout the evening and didn't seem at all interested in what was going on on the basketball court!
Maybe the kiss cam was on them the entire time??
Ch-ch-check out more pics of the two love birds (below)!

Adam Sandler has the best seats at the Staples Center!
Not only does he get to sit courtside during all of the Los Angeles Lakers games, but he gets to sit right next to Jack Nicholson!
Both actors, and screen icons in their own right, look like they get along pretty well too!
Jill Adam laughed along with each other on Friday while they witnessed the home team take down the Cleveland Cavaliers 97-92.
Check out more pics of the basketball buddies below!

Can't touch this!
Jimmy Kimmel has successfully beaten a lawsuit against a video he made (above) in 2010 poking fun at LeBron James' decision to consult a rabbi over his "decision" to leave the Cleveland Cavaliers for the Miami Heat.
Rabbi Dovid Sondik, a small YouTube celeb known as the "Flying Rabbi", sued after Kimmel used his online footage to portray him as the man James met with, Rabbi Yishayahu Yosef Pinto.
Sondik claimed that the silly video made him "look foolish" and a "laughingstock" after falsely portraying his voice, picture, and likeness as the voice, picture and likeness of Rabbi Pinto.
This isn't a very happy Hanukkah for Sondik though because the judge tossed the case on the grounds of Free Speech. He also ruled that his character was not defamed because the video made by Kimmel wasn't "mean-spirited or intended to injure such that its use would be excluded from First Amendment protection."
The plaintiff's attorney has said they plan to appeal the decision.
Check out the video above and let us know if U think the judge made the right call!

Getting a bit dramatic, are we?
Jesse Jackson spoke out against Cleveland Cavaliers owner Dan Gilbert saying that he sees LeBron James as a "runaway slave" and that Gilbert's comments about LeBron joining the Miami Heat put the basketball star in danger!
Gilbert said last week about LeBron:
"He has gotten a free pass. People have covered up for (James) for way too long. Tonight we saw who he really is."
And Jackson's response?
"He speaks as an owner of LeBron and not the owner of the Cleveland Cavaliers. His feelings of betrayal personify a slave master mentality. He sees LeBron as a runaway slave. This is an owner employee relationship — between business partners — and LeBron honored his contract."

Cleveland didn't waste any time taking down the 10-story-tall banner of former Cavaliers player LeBron James.
The NBA star announced this week that he was leaving the Cavaliers for the Miami Heat, which disappointed and downright angered many of his fans who had followed his career since he was a teenager. Many felt he had betrayed his hometown and handled his move to Miami in a shady manner. Some went so far as burning the two-time MVP's jersey and even threw rocks at the iconic mural.
"My mom wanted us to get a picture of it before they brought it down," said Kayla Mack of Norwalk, Ohio. "It's very bittersweet."
Cavs owner Dan Gilbert posted a letter to fans criticizing James for "a several-day narcissistic, self-promotional build-up culminating with a national TV special of the decision unlike anything ever 'witnessed' in the history of sports and probably the history of entertainment."
He later said in an interview:
"LeBron James needs to go to another team with two superstars already so he can win a championship. We will win a championship before (the Heat) do. … It's not about him leaving. It's the disrespect. It's time for people to hold these athletes accountable for their actions. Is this the way you raise your children? I've been holding this all in for a long time."
We say good riddance!
