Not everyone appreciates the power of bass!

It was an emotional night for basketball fans on Wednesday when Los Angeles Lakers star Kobe Bryant played his final game against the Utah Jazz.

Like clockwork, the haters came out on Twitter to comment on Flea's performance:

Filed under: ZportzInspirationBasketballCancerAwwwwwHeartwarmingNBA

Sorry, LeBron! JP Gibson is now the hottest name in the NBA!

Does the "no crying in baseball" rule also apply to basketball, because this story is giving us ALL the feels!

5-year-old JP Gibson didn't let his battle with acute lymphoblastic leukemia keep him from becoming one of the biggest stars in the NBA last night when he made his debut for the Utah Jazz!

The pint-sized basketballer's wish was granted as he got a chance to play for his favorite team after the Jazz offered him a 1-day contract, which he gladly signed with a crayon!

Alexander Skarsgård Is One Sexy Piece Of Eye Candy At The Lakers Game!

alexander skarsgard attends los angeles lakers game

In case you didn't already know, Alexander Skarsgård is a HUGE fan of sports!!

We've seen the sexy stud at hockey games, at tennis matches, and of course he's a world class soccer hooligan!!

And now it looks like we can add basketball to his list of ball-related passions!

ASkars made his way to Staples Center where he grabbed some excellent seats to watch the Los Angeles Lakers take on the Utah Jazz!

Unfortunately, we're guessing his love affair with the boys in purple and gold might be short lived as they only managed to put up 79 in a very embarrassing loss!

It looks like he might want to stick to soccer instead!

Ch-ch-check out more pics of ASkars taking in the action (below)!

Kobe Bryant Relieves Stress By Playing The Piano!

Welp, at least he's not taking his anger out on his team!

The Los Angeles Lakers took a plunge into a loss against the Chicago Bulls on Monday night, which marked their ninth deficit in the past 11 games.

Kobe Bryant only scored 17 points that night, and considering that he's been averaging just about 30 points per game, we can understand his frustration.

So instead of just sitting in his anger, the NBA star showed off his skills on the piano!

Bryant took to his Twitter to reveal:

Jack Nicholson, Maria Shriver, Mario Lopez And More Watch The Lakers!

celeb-lakers-game-mega-post-nicholson-lopez-shriver-arrow.jpg

We've mentioned it before… some Los Angeles Lakers games have some serious star drawing power.

Last night's game was no different!

Jack Nicholson was spotted with his son Raymond, sitting court side in the same seats he is always in.

We wouldn't be surprised if it turned out Jack lived at the Staples Center.

That wasn't the only father-son action at the game…
