Top Bollywood stars Lara Dutta (Miss Universe 2000) and Dino Morea traveled to Los Angeles, California to visit the National Basketball Association’s (NBA) Los Angeles Lakers as part of an all-access VIP weekend. Lara and Dino went behind the scenes to a Lakers practice where they met their favorite player, 2008 NBA Most Valuable Player Kobe Bryant. The storied history of the franchise was highlighted in a tour of the Staples Center, the Lakers home since 1999, which features the retired jerseys of some of the Laker’s greats like Wilt Chamberlain and Earvin “Magic” Johnson. To top-off the experience, Lara and Dino sat courtside as Bryant and his Laker teammates took on the Sacramento Kings.
“NBA basketball is world-class entertainment that offers something for everyone. The game, the dancers, the fans all combine to create an electric atmosphere. This was a great experience and I hope to attend more games in the near future.” – Lara Dutta
