Here’s a quick article from USA Today where Scott Gleeson reports on the disgruntled response of Lakers fan, Snoop Dogg, towards his favorite teams performance. Well, at least he’s lucky he is not a Knicks fan:
Add Snoop Dogg to the list of unhappy Los Angeles Lakers fans as the team continues to struggle and hurt its playoff chances.
In response to the Lakers’ loss on Saturday to the NBA-worst Phoenix Suns, the rapper called for coach Luke Walton’s firing and labeled LeBron James’ supporting cast “goofballs” in an expletive-laced video rant that went viral.
Snoop Dogg, a longtime Lakers fan, started the video by saying the organization needs to “get LeBron some (expletive) help … somebody got to go. Matter of fact, a lot of (expletives) got to go — starting with the coach.”
The TV personality eventually ended the video by offering up his box seats for the rest of the season for $5.
Los Angeles is 30-33, currently 10th in the West and faces a grueling end-of-season schedule that will make a playoff berth difficult. James, who signed a multi-year deal this offseason, hasn’t missed the playoffs since 2005 and played in the last eight NBA Finals as a member of the Cleveland Cavaliers and Miami Heat.
“Sick of this,” Snoop Dogg added in the video. “Going to act like it’s going to be all right, it’s going to be cool, they going to figure it out, they going to grow. These sorry (expletives) aren’t going to (win).”
