Leonardo DiCaprio gets a Rocket up side of the head

Just when we were wishing we were rich and famous enough to sit in the front row at an NBA game we run across this photo from Tuesday night's playoff game between the L.A. Lakers and the Houston Rockets.

That's "Titanic" movie star Leonardo DiCaprio, face turned from the action, hunkered way down so he won't get creamed by Houston Rocket Brent Barry.

And that's pal Kevin Bacon on the right, getting as far away from the incoming Rocket as he can.

Maybe the cheap seats aren't so bad after all.
