Los Angeles Lakers Celebrate Kelly Slaterâ€™s 10th World Title
The Los Angeles Lakers celebrated the greatest surfer of all time on Jan. 2nd at the Staples Center. The Lakers put on a private party for Kelly and 20 of his closest friends in the Chairman’s room prior to the game. The private party was provided with a major spread of food, drinks, and a custom cake to celebrate Kelly’s 10th World Title. After catching up with his friends over some great food, drinks, and a little cake, Kelly was off to his courtside seat where he would wait for the Laker’s staff to come and get him to present the game ball at center court just prior to tip off. After the players were introduced, Kelly was escorted out to center court where Kelly presented the ball to the ref. The commentator recognized Kelly for his accomplishments while the jumbo tron showed footage of the champ surfing. This was an epic day for all involved and really cool to see our boy recognized on such a grand scale in front of 18k people. Special thanks to the Los Angeles Lakers for putting on a top notch celebration for the CHAMP!
