David Beckham, Antonio Villaraigosa and Magic Johnson surrounding Xi Jinping, accruing guanxi.
Seriously, David Beckham? Though Xi Jinping might have Cultivated a Relaxed Image on his U.S. Trip, China’s leader-in-waiting really couldn’t compete with Mr. Posh Spice. Beckham evidently ignored the memo about the business casual dress code for Xi’s visit to see the Lakers take on the Phoenix Suns at the Staples Center on Friday night.
A laid back broseph like David Beckham apparently gets to represent the city of Los Angeles next to the likes of Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa and Magic Johnson, and therefore has to keep it very, very real. No pretense, you know? Unless it’s for some super important event, like, the Oscars or something.
Just tasty waves and cool buzzes, bro!
