DeSean Jackson’s love of his native California and his Los Angeles Lakers is well documented — his Twitter bio says he’s “Mr. Westside” — so it’s no surprise that with the NBA packing a full slate of games on Christmas, DJacc found himself at the Staples Center for the Lakers-Knicks contest. The speedy Eagles receiver also posed for photos with Kobe Bryant and other famous people Chris Brown and Rihanna.


DeSean tweeted photos of himself posing with Brown and Rihanna with the caption, “Da homie CB!! An Ri.”

It’s a blurry shot, but at least you can make out who the three people photographed are, unlike his photo with Kobe which said, “Kobe in his Zone!!” Apparently Kobe’s Zone is before a basketball game bumping shoulders with a football player.

Merry Christmas, DeSean, and never stop doing you.

As for the hoops, the Lakers held off the Knicks on the strength of their impressive guard play out of Steve Nash. The most exciting game of the day went down in Miami, where the Heat fought off Kevin Durant and OKC’s effort.
