The LA Lakers Are Very Concerned About Their Hair -- and Their GroinsThe Los Angeles Lakers are now your 2010 World Champions. What will they do next? Will all the players stay on the team? Will coach Phil Jackson return next year? Will they manage to 'three-peat'?

Strangely enough, when the Lakers appeared on 'Jimmy Kimmel Live,' (weeknights, 12:05AM ET on ABC), they didn't seem all that focused on these questions. Rather, they discussed guard Sasha Vujacic's obsession with making sure that his hair looks awesome. Vujacic was caught primping on camera in a clip that host Jimmy Kimmel shared.

Jonah Hill Angers Lakers Coach Phil JacksonJonah Hill, a die-hard L.A. Lakers fan, once pissed off team coach Phil Jackson (who just won his 11th NBA championship ring) in the middle of a game. On 'The Tonight Show' (weeknights, 11:35PM ET on NBC), Hill explained that it was all for a good cause -- comedy -- but he hasn't recovered from feeling like he let the team down.

For a 'Curb Your Enthusiasm' episode, he was asked to "switch chairs with [the actors], go to the two seats over for five minutes so [they] can shoot this bit [during the game]," said Hill.

That went smoothly, but switching back proved more difficult, and the coach himself lashed out. "It was like having your dad yell at you, because Phil's like my hero." And given that Jackson's been a little busy winning basketball games, Hill hasn't had to chance to apologize.

According to L.A. Lakers point guard Derek Fisher, coach Phil Jackson uses a decidedly New Age technique to get his team back on track should they not be playing well.

"When we kinda get going a little funky -- we may lose a game or two or just our energy or chemistry as a team is off -- he comes into the locker room and he'll have a handful of sage," Fisher told Conan O'Brien. "He lights it and he literally walks through the entire locker room, the training room, all the team areas."
