Kobe Bryant Unveils Taylor Swift Banner At The Staples Center

(Radio.com) The large banners that hang from the ceilings of sports arenas are usually reserved for the home teams who play there. There are some exceptions: at New York's Madison Square Garden, Billy Joel has his own banner next to banners celebrating the NBA's Knicks, the NHL's Rangers and WNBA's Liberty, but that's because he's something of a franchise there: Joel plays one concert at MSG every month.

But last week (August 21), Taylor Swift got a banner at L.A.'s Staples Center. No, she's not moving in. But she has racked up more sold out shows there than anyone else, with 16.

So during her concert, one of her nightly special guests - Lakers star Kobe Bryant - unveiled the banner during the show. It reads "Taylor Swift: Most Sold Out Performances."

Kobe didn't sing, but T-Swizz had another on stage guest, Ryan Tedder of One Republic, who did perform with her. Check out some shots and some video here.
