A brawl Saturday night at the Staples Center in Los Angeles that resulted in multi-game suspensions for several members of the Houston Rockets and Los Angeles Lakers also involved a Chili Pepper!
Red Hot Chili Peppers front man Anthony Kiedis was court side beneath one of the baskets. As Rockets guard Chris Paul (who was ejected) was led to the locker room, Kiedis can be seen in video shouting and flipping the bird to Paul.
By the time Paul was out of view, a security official can be seen talking to Kiedis and leading him away.
RHCP bassist Flea can also be seen in the video. Flea is wearing a Magic Johnson tank top and sitting calmly as his band mate inserts himself into the fray.
"At the Lakers game last night with my dear brother," Flea wrote beneath a photo of Kiedis and himself, which he posted on Instagram. "It got crazy at the end, but man I get so satisfied, deeply drinking in the depth and beauty of the game. People operating at a high level in so many dimensions."
Here's the fight:
