Djokovic Watches LA Lakers NBA Game
by ATP Staff|
World No. 1 Novak Djokovic met some of the NBA’s biggest stars last night as he attended the LA Laker’s home game against the Atlanta Hawks at the Staples Center in Los Angeles. Landing in California earlier in the day after a long flight from Dubai, where on Saturday he won his fourth title at the Dubai Duty Free Tennis Championships, Djokovic met Kobe Bryant, Dwight Howard, Steve Nash and other members of the team.
The Serb then shot some baskets before the game started, nailing a three-pointer. He was interviewed by the Laker’s in-stadium video feed and sat courtside to watch the game.
On Monday Djokovic will play Mardy Fish in the LA Tennis Challenge at UCLA. He will then travel to Indian Wells, where he will be the top seed at the BNP Paribas Open.
