Tinseltown Goes Courtside

Hollywood loves a winner, so it’s no surprise that the show-biz elite turned out in droves  at the Staples Center last night to watch the L.A. Lakers trounce the San Antonio Spurs in game five of the NBA Western Conference finals.

The many luminaries in attendance included Cameron Diaz, Antonio Banderas and Jeffrey Katzenberg in a veritable Shrek-topia, Zohan-ready Adam Sandler Lionel Richie, Denzel Washington, George Lopez, Sean “Diddy” Combs and Dr. Dre, who all apparently brought luck with them.

Not so lucky: Eva Longoria, whose cheers for her hubby, Spurs point guard Tony Parker, failed to put San Antonio over the top. Maybe he was distracted by all that cleavage he knows so well.

Ha-ha, chumps! Better luck next year, Eva and Tony!
