Here is a sentence we did not expect to write today:

Meryl Streep hung at at yesterday's Knicks-Lakers game with 50 Cent. No... really!

The 18-time Academy Award nominee sat courtside for the matchup alongside the famous rapper, getting along so well with Fiddy that the pair eventually made it backstage.

Where Kobe Bryant joined the party!

What did the trio talk about? Probably Carmelo Anthony dropped 62 points Friday night... Justin Bieber getting arrested... who Juan Pablo Galavis will select to be his wife.

Check out a handful of photos of the unexpected threesome now:

Count Kobe Bryant as someone who is looking forward to a fresh start in the new year.

The Lakers superstar, who has only played in six games this season after tearing his Achilles in April, suffered a fractured lateral tibial plateau Tuesday night and will miss at least six weeks of action.

"All I can do is do the work. And do everything I can to be back at the highest level," Bryant told ESPN.

Following a disastrous season with the Los Angeles Lakers, Dwight Howard is now a member of the Houston Rockets.

He signed a four-year, $88 million contract with the team this week.

And while many in the media have been waiting for Kobe Bryant to entertain us with some kind of explosion at his former teammate, the future Hall of Famer has been far more subtle in his reaction.

First, he posted the photo above of himself and Pau Gasol on Instagram. He included "#vamos" as a hashtag.

Earlier this week, Jason Collins came out as gay, making him the first openly homosexual active player in a major American sport.

And the outpour of support just keeps on coming!

Kobe Bryant is the Collins' latest peer to stand behind the Wizards Center.

When the story first broke, Bryant tweeted "Proud of @jasoncollins34. Don't suffocate who u r because of the ignorance of others."

Now, he's told E! that "The biggest key is for everybody to be comfortable being themselves."

The Laker added "As his peers we have to support him, just rally around him."

Millions of fans tuned in to the Los Angeles Lakers' 91-79 defeat yesterday in the opening game of their Western Conference Playoff series against the San Antonio Spurs.

But one fan in particular stood out for his Tweeted opinions on the team's offense flow... or lackthereof.

Kobe Shoots

Kobe Bryant, out for the year with a torn Achilles, sent multiple cyber messages throughout the contest, making it clear he believed Pau Gasol should "post, post, post," while also lamenting the team's "matador defense" against Tony Parker.

For weeks, Kobe Bryant has been carrying the Los Angeles Lakers and their playoff chances on his back.

But it was a different body part that felled the NBA superstar last night, as Bryant tore his Achilles tendon, ending his season and possibly beyond.

Even the biggest Laker hater has to be shaking his or her head at the news. Who wants to see one of sports' living legends go out in such a way?

But is Kobe done for good? The injury - and perhaps some pain medication - prompted Bryant to go on an EPIC Facebook rant this morning at 3:30.

It includes words of doubt, inspiration... and a warning to any bear looking for a fight. And it's worth just reading in its entirety below:

L.A. Lakers star Kobe Bryant suffered a torn Achilles tendon late in the team's win over Golden State last night and is finished for the rest of the NBA season.

Standing on crutches in front of his locker, sweaty game uniform on his back and tears in his eyes, Kobe confirmed the news, and his disappointment.

"Just terrible," Bryant said. "It's a terrible feeling, man."

Bryant will undergo an MRI on Saturday, but the team is calling the injury a "probable" and "complete tear" that will end his 2012-13 season immediately.

Kobe Bryant did not attend college.

But if he did? And if he had been at Rutgers University during the violent reign of Mike Rice? The Los Angeles Lakers superstar knows exactly how he would have reacted.

"I woulda smacked the hell out of him," Kobe tells Jim Rome in an interview that airs on Showtime tonight. "No question about it."

Kobe Bryant has given an assist to Magic Johnson.

The Lakers shooting guard was asked yesterday about Magic Johnson's son, EJ, who went public this week with his same-sex relationship and who received statements of support from his famous father.

"Of course Magic is supportive of and loves his son," Kobe told TMZ in response. "Why should anyone be surprised? What I can't tolerate is a lack of tolerance."

Kobe Bryant has come a long way.

In 2011, the legendary shooting guard was fined by the NBA for referring to a referee as a "f-cking f-ggot" after a perceived bad call.

Fast forward two years and the Lakers are awful. We mean, Kobe has clearly learned from his mistake.

Kobe Bryant on the Red Carpet

In response to a beef between two Twitter users yesterday, Bryan interjected and wrote:

"Just letting you know@PacSmoove @pookeo9 that using "your gay" as a way to put someone down ain't ok! #notcool delete that out ur vocab."

Written that way, it's also grammatically incorrect.
