It’s no secret that many NBA players love to play golf when they’re not dribbling a basketball. However, when it’s about spending their leisure time, most would either stay home and play NBA2K or go out and enjoy an NFL game. Also, if it’s a football game in LA, expect the likes of LeBron James, Magic Johnson, & others to show up.

One such occasion recently came when the Rams met the Tampa Bay Buccaneers at the SoFi stadium. It was a star-studded affair where every big name from the LA hooping community showed up in style.

The past and present of the Lakers franchise at the NFL game

The Rams handed the Bucs their first loss since November 29, 2020, and they did it in style. A 34-24 score on the board meant the LA-based football team is unbeaten this summer. Quarterback Matthew Stafford (four touchdowns) rocked as his side displayed great skills and composure. 

But one cannot help but wonder, was this because of the inspiration coming from the stands? LeBron James in a casual Nike tee, Carmelo Anthony in an orange hat and a wanderlust hoodie, and Draymond Green in an all-black rocked the party. With them, Russell Westbrook, Talen Horton Tucker, and Anthony Davis too enjoyed the night at SoFi Stadium. 

If these weren’t already a lot of shiny gems, Magic Johnson showed up with his wife. Also notably, all these pictures were clicked when the Bucs were trailing at 17 points. 

Magic is certainly a huge promoter of the sport, as this is the second straight time in the week that he attended a match.

The Clippers made their presence felt

With the Lakers dominating the stands, the Clippers weren’t behind either. Both Kawhi Leonard and Paul George took to SoFi Stadium and almost made it feel like the Staples Center for the NBA fans. One can see how The Claw was taking the beating from Kaliyah Leonard as PG was chatting with a neighbor.
