Taylor Swift Gets Banner at L.A.’s Staples Center — Before the Clippers

In the course of her rather short career Wyomissing native Taylor Swift has already sold out 16 shows at Los Angeles’s Staples Center. She’s in the midst of playing five of those this week. You’ve no doubt heard about them on the news, especially her star-studded special-guest appearances, which have ranged from everyone from Mary J. Blige and Chris Rock to Alanis Morissette.

So to honor her achievement of having the most sold-out performances at the venue, L.A. Lakers player Kobe Bryant showed up one night to present her a covetable banner that will hang in the rafters alongside sports heroes who played and dominated there, folks like other Lakers greats Magic Johnson and Wilt Chamberlain.
