With the Washington Capitals in Los Angeles a day ahead of their matchup against the Kings on Wednesday night, Alex Ovechkin took the opportunity to attend a Lakers game at Staples Center. While there, he met up with Kobe Bryant and tennis star Novak Djokovic, both of whom Ovechkin has shown appreciation for in the past.

It seems that Kobe is also a big fan of Ovechkin, the NHL’s leading goal-scorer this season, as he greeted him with a signed jersey and pair of sneakers with a message that praised him as “one of the all time greats.” Takes one to know one, I suppose.

No comment !!!its unbelievable to have this!!!👍

Hopefully Djokovic got some sort of gift, as well, otherwise this could be kind of awkward.
