When in Rome, ya know? Okay, so that quote only makes sense if you think of Los Angeles as being equal to Rome. In some ways it is.

After all, there’s a Coliseum in Los Angeles, there are arenas in which athletes have some form of athletic combat – not to the death, of course – and those athletes like to watch other athletes perform.

So, it should come as no shock to anyone that some of the Dodgers players went to go watch the Lakers play against the Dallas Mavericks on Tuesday evening.

From Kike Hernandez’s Instagram account:

Can't be a Dodger and not go to a @lakers game right?! #LakersVsMavs

He’s right. You can’t be a Dodger and not go to at least one Lakers game at STAPLES Center. I think it’s a prerequisite, in fact.

It didn’t stop there, though. Hernandez wasn’t the only Dodger player to show up for the game.

So, we have Dodgers outfielder Yasiel Puig posing for a picture with boxing superstar Floyd Mayweather.

Mayweather has been known to frequent STAPLES Center for basketball games as he’s been seen at Clippers games and, now, Lakers games. It’s what he does during his downtime.

Athletes are people and need their own time away from the game and, as the offseason wraps up around baseball, it certainly appears as if Puig and Hernandez are getting the last moments of fun out of the way before the real work begins.

It’s always great to enjoy a basketball game, especially when you’re sitting courtside or close to it.
