Eden Hazard Stars In Best Celeb Photo Of Last Night's NBA London

Eden Hazard Stars In Best Celeb Photo Of Last Night's NBA London

Boston Celtics beat the Philadelphia 76ers 114-103 in London's O2 Arena last night, as the NBA made a star-studded visit to the UK.  The event was packed full of celebrities and stars from a variety of sports, that gave plenty of opportunity for some great photos - most of which we can't include in this article due to rights constraints.

However, one that definitely caught our eye, comes from the Premier League's Instagram story and features Eden Hazard posing with former NBA player, Dikembe Mutombo.

Mutombo is a Congolese, four-time NBA Defensive Player of the Year winner, who holds the record for the second most shot blocks in NBA history. He's also over seven feet tall (and you can't teach that!). Eden Hazard on the otherhand, he's 5' 8''.

Hazard was one of many Premier League players who were spotted at the game. His Chelsea and Belgian teammate,  Thibaut Courtois, was also in on the action, along with a few Arsenal, Spurs and Man City players.

Another interested spectator was none other than Alex Ferguson. Some nice emoji work from the Premier League on this one.

And look who I spotted in the NBA Snapchat story. Our own Padraig Harrington!

The hightlight of the night though had to be Jack Whitehall getting pranked when he tried a blindfolded shot at half-time. Simple but brilliant.
