The Washington Wizards had Tuesday off in the middle of a home-and-home with the Atlanta Hawks, but Washington point guard John Wall still decided to spend his evening at the Verizon Center.

Why? Because Rihanna was in town.

The singer's "Anti World Tour" made a stop at the Wizards' home arena this week, so Wall played the role of a gracious host and presented her with a (Wall) jersey. And yes, he also made sure to get a photo with the "Work" singer.  

The 25-year-old Wizard later gave Rihanna a shoutout on Instagram:

For one night, Wall knew what it felt like to be a fan at the Verizon Center.
