Kobe Bryant, 50 Cent, Meryl Streep just hanging out together…

Jan 27, 2014, 11:05 AM EDT

Sunday morning, as so often happens, Meryl Streep and 50 cent had the exact same thought — I’d like to watch some hoops today. Maybe see Carmelo Anthony go off against the Los Angeles Lakers’ “defense.” And the Knicks are all into having celebs at their games.

So they did, Streep and 50 cent were seated next to each other courtside at the Knicks win Sunday over the Lakers at Madison Square Garden. They even were laughing and holding hands at points (seriously, I could not make that up).

After the game they hung out with Kobe Bryant for a while and posted to Instagram. Because of course they did.

      I literally don’t know who you’re referring to for any of those.

    I listened to Hip Hop for years until 50 cent blew up. I couldn’t understand the intrigue for this guy. He buried Dr. Dre’s reputation.

      Lol just wow you couldn’t be even wrong.
      buried Dre’s reputation? Guy lay off the drugs

    Can we play F one, marry one, kill one? It would be fun.

        I was just hoping to play moderator. It’s a tough call.

    And I thought Yahoo! and ESPN commenters were bad.

    Not saying this is right or wrong or good or bad… but Kobe has a NEED to be in the spot light.

    Being hurt and not playing, he’s giving many quotes to reporters, tweeting, posting shots etc…

    He showed up at Boston College and got noticed via social media, this and many other things.

    Again, it isn’t right or wrong but just more of his personality being shown.

    He can’t just rehab and remain out of the spot light.

    While Steve Nash has been out, I’ve forgotten he’s even on the team… never hear from him.

      What should Kobe do? Stay locked up in his house? Kobe goes to get dinner at the restaurant and it blows up social media.

      That’s just what happens when you’re the most famous basketball player on the planet.

      • jimeejohnson - Jan 27, 2014 at 7:11 PM

        Michael Jordan is the most famous basketball player on the planet, but what do they know.

      • ranfan12 - Jan 28, 2014 at 10:11 PM

        I think Kobe might have him beat worldwide

  7. mackcarrington - Jan 27, 2014 at 6:57 PM

    I’m willing to bet that 50 Cent doesn’t even know who Meryl Streep is.
    To him she is probably just some middle aged white woman who has good connections at the Garden.

    • 1heatedtoombrayduh - Jan 27, 2014 at 7:50 PM

      yeah OHkay, i’ll go ahead and give you an LOL bc of how bad you reached for that one smh

    • mytthor - Jan 28, 2014 at 1:46 AM

      50 cent is more Hollywood than Hip Hop. He knows who Meryl Streep is.

  8. dp8819 - Jan 27, 2014 at 11:15 PM

  9. jumpmanlane - Jan 28, 2014 at 11:10 AM

    Geeze cant some famous people hob knob in peace. They are rich and famous and like cameras and basketball. Meryl Streep is too famous to sit beside some nobody. Fiddy is part of The Glitteratti. Both are famous enough to get a smooze with Kobe. Het its what famous folks supposed to do.
