The days of courtside celeb-spotting are over, or at least on hiatus, but Cameron Diaz keeps those precious basketball-inspired memories close … to her face.

But one key accessory caught our attention. You may have to zoom in to notice, but the Holiday star’s face mask bears a pattern of tiny NBA logos.
