London's O2 arena hosted its sixth NBA regular-season game on Thursday evening, with the out-of-form Orlando Magic taking on the Atlantic Division-leading Toronto Raptors. There were plenty of celebrities in attendance and a notable contingent from the Premier League, including Phil Jones—who clearly channeled his look on 1955 Biff Tannen.

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain was also in attendance, along with several of his hat-wearing Arsenal colleagues:

Evidently, Carl Jenkinson and Olivier Giroud need to text each other before they leave the house wearing matching flat caps:

Chelsea were also represented courtside, with Eden Hazard, Kurt Zouma and Thibaut Courtois arriving together:

Courtois wasn't the only Blues keeper to come to Greenwich: Asmir Begovic suited up to show his support of the Raptors:

Former Chelsea star Michael Ballack also attended with his girlfriend, Natacha Tannous:

Didier Drogba came to last year's NBA game in London, and this year he had excellent seats—although he was within earshot of Gordon Ramsay:

Drogba also showed he has skills.
