The Los Angeles Lakers are beloved by many fans and that includes West Coast rapper The Game. Even though the team didn’t reach the playoffs last season, they are still a popular team that critics and fans expect to be top contenders for the next season. The Game has issued a request via his Instagram. He has asked for the team to represent the city with alternate Nipsey Hussle jerseys.
The reigning NBA Champions, The Raptors, have their global ambassador in Drake. He has helped to shape the team’s marketing in the past and also made suggestions to change the team’s attire at some points. Will the Los Angeles Lakers follow suit by having one of the most respected hip hop artists in Los Angeles suggestion come true? Will Lebron James push through this idea that pays tribue to Crenshaw neighbourhood that Nipsey Hussle represented
I don’t know who came up with this… but @kingjames should push this through as an alternate jersey this seasonThe Game
The Game tagged Lebron James on Instagram with the description above in hopes of seeing an edited photo come to life with forward Kyle Kuzma wearing the purple and gold with a couple of tweaks. On the shooting sleeve, it’s written “The Marathon Continues” and the jersey has palm tree illustration near the bottom. You also can spot a “Nipsey” tag and the Crenshaw logo.
