The Los Angeles Lakers essentially wrapped up the NBA Championship last night, as they took a three games to one lead with a 99-91 victory over the Orlando Magic.
Fortunately, a pair of sideline sightings have enabled our staff to ignore the depressing fact that Kobe Bryant will soon be holding up the Larry O'Brien trophy again.
Both Rihanna and Chris Brown sat courtside for the contest. While sources claim the former couple "requested to sit together" at one point, they ended up occupying seats in separate sections.
In one sense, the outing isn't unusual for Rihanna. She was one of a number of celebrities to attend Game Two in Los Angeles. But that was played in her hometown.
Moreover, it didn't take place two days after Rihanna was subpoenaed to appear in court to testify against Brown for beating the daylights out of her.
We hope these duel appearances don't signify a reconciliation between Brown and his former punching bag. She's much better off with Aubrey Graham.
