Kobe Ignores Chris Rock, But Phil Jackson Doesn’t (Videos)

Chris Rock was just one of the many celebrities present at the Staples Center last night for Game 1 of the NBA Finals between the Los Angeles Lakers and the Boston Celtics.  However, he was not the only “Rock” sitting courtside.  At times throughout the game, another “Rock” could be seen sitting right next to him.  Most people refer to this “Rock” as “The Black Mamba” or Kobe Bryant, but perhaps we should be calling him Kobe “The Rock”.

After all, such a name seems more than fitting for a man who does not even crack a smile as one of the funniest men on the planet rings off joke after joke from only a few feet away.

Kobe may have been able to ignore Chris, but Phil Jackson couldn’t, eventually making his way over and telling him to “get your feet off my stage.”

Is that supposed to be a joke?  If so, perhaps Phil’s comedy routine can use some help from Chris Rock.

Sorry Phil, but last night, that floor was Kobe’s stage.
