Rob Gronkowski, Venus Williams join Lakers' dance team to headline wild halftime show


On the same day he refused to shut the door once and for all on making a comeback, Rob Gronkowski showed us he has the chops to pursue an entirely different career.

The former NFL star, as well as Venus Williams, performed with the Laker Girls — Los Angeles’ dance team — during halftime against the Oklahoma City Thunder. Gronk was joined by James Corden, of “Carpool Karaoke” fame.

Here’s a closer look at Gronk:

Is it just us, or is the 6-foot-6, 265-pound former tight end ... not that bad?

And Gronk wasn’t the only one to showcase a special talent Tuesday night. Ten-year-old Maxx scored an impressive 30 points in the “half-minute to win it” contest.

What a night in L.A., truly.
