Hayden goes courtside with the LA Lakers

The day after his appearance at the AMA Supercross opening round on Saturday, Nicky Hayden took in the action of the NBA, cheering the LA Lakers to a 101-98 victory over championship leaders the Dallas Mavericks at the Staples Center. Invited to the locker room after the game, Nicky and family were greeted by top NBA star Kobe Bryant, himself an avid rider. Bearing gifts, Hayden presented Bryant with two limited-edition championship jerseys and a pair of special Red Bull U.S. Grand Prix Alpinestars gloves, and invited him to the Red Bull U.S. Grand Prix at Laguna Seca as a personal guest.

The World Champion makes his return to testing at the end of the month, continuing development of the Honda RC212V 800cc bike in Sepang.
