It is the rare night where LeBron James isn’t the only royalty* in the house but that was the case on Monday night, when the Brooklyn Nets played the Cleveland Cavaliers in New York.

Prince William and Duchess Kate Middleton were in attendance for the game. And as if that wasn’t notable enough, the couple was seated next to Dikembe Mutombo.
