On Christmas Day, the Miami Heat escaped Los Angeles with a six-point victory over the Lakers, though I’m not sure how a specific fan felt about the result.
Captured sitting near the sideline in some of the more plush seats at Staples Center, a curly haired fan was seen with one of the bigger taboo’s in sports – a wishful thinking jersey.
Wearing a Lakers ‘gold’ authentic LeBron James jersey, the fan caught the attention of NBA minds on social media and the photo quickly went viral.
James of course, has the ability to be a free agent going into each of the next two offseasons and the Lakers have been a potential rumored destination. However, after re-signing Kobe Bryant and eating a large portion of their cap space, it’s unlikely James would make his way towards Hollywood if he does opt to become a free agent in the near future.
Regardless, still an interesting sight.
How say you, FanSided? Fun idea? Or waste of money? I’m going to go with the latter.
