An update on Roger Federer and Pete Sampras’ day together Friday. As first reported Federer and Sampras had a two-hour practice session early yesterday. Then later in the evening the two tennis legends went to the Staples Center to watch the LA Lakers beat the Charlotte Bobcats.

Sampras, who is a big basketball nut, scored courtside seats for the game allowing him and Roger to meet Kobe Bryant, Phil Jackson and Lamar Odom among other stars.

The ATP released a bunch of photos of Federer and Sampras from the evening. Here’s one (courtesy NBAE, Getty):
