With the Los Angeles Lakers adding Anthony Davis, Danny Green, Demarcus Cousins, and other key players, they have become title contenders for the upcoming NBA Season. This NBA season is shaping up to be one of the most competitive and memorable seasons after many teams stacked up their roster during the on-going free agency.
The Game is pushing for something that would make this season even more memorable for the Los Angeles Lakers and their fans. He took to Instagram to share alternate jerseys showing love to the Crenshaw neighbourhood that Nipsey Hussle represented and held near to his heart.
The lifelong fan of the Lakers posted an edited photo of Laker Kyle Kuzma featuring some telltale Nipsey Hussle references. The purple and gold jersey includes a “Nipsey” tag, the Crenshaw logo, and “The Marathon Continues” on the shooting sleeve.
He wrote, “I don’t know who came up with this… but @kingjames should push this through as an alternate jersey this season.”
Former NBA player, Caron Butler, had a similar idea. He took to twitter to share an edited blue and white Lakers jersey with the Crenshaw logo across the chest. He pitched his idea for the Clippers to wear a red Crenshaw jersey and the Lakers a blue Crenshaw jersey in a game against each other.
Dwayne Wade supported the idea tweeting, “The culture needs this.”
Should the Lakers or Clippers decide to run with this idea, the jerseys will guaranteed sell out within minutes.
