You never know who you'll see courtside at the Los Angeles Lakers games. Or, in the case of some very wealthy fans, who you'll be sitting next to courtside at the Staples Center.

During a recent game between the Lakers and the Golden State Warriors, Hollywood superagent Ari Emanuel and his son, Leo, happened to be seated next to pop superstar Rihanna. Emanuel is, of course, the inspiration for the character Ari Gold on Entourage and the brother of Chicago mayor Rahm Emanuel. Rihanna is, well, Rihanna.

Somehow, Leo lucked into the seat next to Rihanna, and the two seemed like they had a blast goofing around and watching the Lakers pull out the victory over the Warriors.

Here are some images from the night:

The pair had a lot to celebrate, as the Lakers defeated the Steph Curry-less Warriors, 102-95.

Fresh off her Diamonds World tour, Rihanna probably had a lot of stories to share with Leo.

Rihanna is used to being shown on the Jumbotron. Leo, not so much.

A Lakers win and a night with Rihanna. What more could a teenage boy ask for?

Other than getting babysat by Justin Bieber, this is just about the best thing that can happen to a young fan at the Staples Center.
