Gordon Ramsay

SNUBS Dodgers for NBA Playoffs

5/3/2011 10:13 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

"Hell's Kitchen" star Gordon Ramsay DISSED the Los Angeles Dodgers yesterday -- because after he threw out the first pitch -- he LEFT THE GAME -- so he could sit courtside to watch the Lakers.

At 6:55 PM, Ramsay threw out the ceremonial first pitch at Dodger Stadium ... but by 7:50 PM ... he was sitting on the floor at Staples Center next to David Beckham ... to watch the Lakers take on the Dallas Mavericks.

So Gordon had a 55 minute window to get from the pitcher's mound ... into his seat at Staples Center. Let's do the math ...

If it took 15 mins to get out of the stadium ... 15 to drive over to Staples ... and another 10 to get to his seat ... that means he spent a grand total of 15 minutes INSIDE Dodger Stadium ... putting his exit time at 7:10 ... right when the game was scheduled to begin.

Which means ... dude probably cut out before the REAL first pitch.

The real question ... he left a regulation MLB game for an NBA playoff game -- can you blame him?
