The Lakers are NBA Summer League champs, and L.A. fans came to Las Vegas in droves to get their first glimpse of #2 overall pick Lonzo Ball for the first time in purple and gold.
Besides Lonzo, the Laker roster was mostly filled with unknown rookies and fringe NBA players, but the die-hard fans in Vegas pride themselves on knowing the roster top to bottom. Or at least pretending to.
A reporter for the Kings went on a trolling mission and asked L.A. fans how they felt about the performances about a couple of unknown Laker rookies by the names of Ned Stark and Shawn Carter.
Even though Shawn Carter, better known as Jay Z – and Ned Stark – the beheaded fictional patriarch of House Stark from Game of Thrones – don’t play for the Lakers, fans had hot takes about their summer league performances, nonetheless.
Everybody wants to be an insider. Based on some of these scouting reports Jay Z has a good chance to crack the rotation.
