Sunday night’s game between the Wizards and the Lakers featured some superstar talent, both on the court and sitting courtside at Capital One Arena.
Alex Ovechkin and wife Nastya Ovechkina had prime seats next to the Wizards bench as the hometown team faced off against LeBron James and the Lakers. The Ovechkins were joined by several friends. Zach Leonsis, son of Ted, also sat with the group.
The couple had seats so good that they were practically in the Wizards’ huddle during breaks in play.
Capitals teammate Devante Smith-Pelly was also in attendance at the game, though seated on the other side of the arena. Smith-Pelly took a video of James and captioned it “the goat.” He also took a video of Ovechkin and captioned it “the other goat.”
Ovechkin enjoyed some nachos and a hot dog during intermission. “That’s dinner,” he said into the camera as he carried a plate in each hand. At least it’s a healthier dinner than ice cream?
Earlier in the day, Ovechkin and his wife were at a team-sponsored holiday party where Ovechkin attempted to throw some moves on the court himself.
The Wizards beat the Lakers 128-110, so perhaps they should have Ovi and Nastya sit courtside more games.
