PHOTOS: Thierry Henry Watches Basketball With Fabregas and Drogba.

It was a glamourous night in the United Kingdom on January 15 as many stars from the footballing and showbiz world showed up to witness the fifth regular season NBA contest. It was a game between New York Knicks and the Milwaukee Bucks at the sold-out O2 Arena.

Although about sixty Premier League stars were believed to be around to watch the basketball game, it was Arsenal legend, Thierry Henry, ex-Arsenal skipper, Cesc Fabregas and Didier Drogba who seemed to have gotten better views. The trio got courtside seats. Henry sat in the middle while Fabregas and Drogba sat at his right and left side like body guards. Lol!

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain was also present at the venue. He took backstage pictures with some Knicks cheerleaders. Jack Wilshere did not miss out too. Mathieu Flamini and Per Mertesacker were also seen at the courtside sharing in the fun that night.

Henry whose interest in basketball could have been ignited during his stay in the MLS was given a standing ovation when his image was displayed on the big screen. Also present were Michael Owen, England rugby union team's No 8, Billy Vunipola and British heavyweight boxing sensation Anthony Joshua.
