The San Antonio Spurs took on Alba Berlin in Germany on Wednesday and pop star Lady Gaga was there to see it. She even met with the NBA champions, and their trophy, after the game.
While the game did not go quite as planned for the Spurs, with Alba Berlin nailing a buzzer beater to give the German team a 94-93 win, meeting Lady Gaga appears to have brightened the spirits of Manu Ginobili and Tony Parker.
Me and Ginobili! My favorite player! He's even taller in person! What a doll!
And what a treat when Tony Parker came back to see us, he was such a gentleman, we were all laughing and he told us some great stories. A champion from the inside out! Thanks for the great time guys, I wish you a great season!
The Spurs and NBA were so sweet to me last night! They even let me hold their championship trophy! I felt like such a lady!
Gaga was in town to perform a concert in the arena the following night as part of her European tour.
