Three amigos: Kobe Bryant kicks it with 50 Cent, Meryl Streep at Lakers-Knicks game (pics)

As is often the case whenever the New York Knicks play a game at Madison Square Garden — irrespective of whether or not the Knickerbockers are actually playing well — the stars were out and about on Sunday as the team hosted the Los Angeles Lakers.

Kobe Bryant was in attendance, for obvious reasons (sucks to be him). Since he has ample time to hang out at this point of the season as the superstar once again is sidelined with injury — Kobe spent some time fraternizing with some of the A-List glitterati who were on-hand to take in the showdown between the A-List, albeit struggling, franchises.

And what an odd combination of celebrities Kobe found himself kicking it with at some point Sunday: Yep, none other than 50 Cent and Meryl Streep.

As it relates to just how 50 Cent and Miss Meryl buddied up, the legendary actress and hip hop icon were seated courtside next to one another:

The two presumably — at least hopefully — were discussing some kind of collaboration. No, not in film. Rap album. M-Streep is renowned for dropping some dope freestyle rhymes, yo! As 50 Cent stated in the message attached to the above photo he posted to Instagram: “Things got a little gangsta. Lol.”
