Jan. 30: Taking It To The Court

What drama? Travis Barker looks cool as a cucumber while hanging out with his DJ buddy Steve Aoki on the basketball court. In case you’ve been living under a rock, it’s been sad times with Blink-182, but judging by the photo, Travis is unfazed. Off the court, Steve and Travis also took some time to cuddle with some adorable pooches. Aww!
