On Thursday night, the Los Angeles Lakers made the short trip across town to take on the Los Angeles Clippers in LeBron James’ first game back with the team after 17 games off with a groin injury.
While LeBron’s return dominated the headlines, one couple at tonight’s game stole the show.
During the kiss cam portion of the night at the Staples Center, a woman took the “kiss” portion a bit further by putting her entire shirt over her (we’re presuming) husband’s face.
The video quickly hit Twitter and went viral after the fans watching at home saw what she was doing.

Is it possible this was staged for the crowd? That’s a distinct possibility, given other venues have done some form of viral content over the past few years to get headlines.
Well, the Staples Center and Clippers will be getting plenty of buzz following tonight’s game against the Lakers – especially with LeBron’s return to the floor for the first time in over five weeks.
It’s still early in the game, but the Lakers hold a slight lead at the end of the first quarter.
LeBron James has just two points on the night, with two rebounds and three turnovers in his first game back from injury.
