Some famous Premier Leaguers showed up to watch the Lakers cheerleaders at the O2 Arena, including several Arsenal stars (led by Cesc Fabregas and Robin van Persie), Darren Bent, Bobby Zamora and Joleon Lescott. And, er, Steve Sidwell.
In addition to the fine cheerleading display, there was also some sort of quaint run-and-shoot-the-ball-through-a-hoop contest. How nice. The T-Wolves won that, the spoilsports. Kobe Bryant played a full SIX minutes. How nice.
