The Crypt crowd never disappoints, even when the home team does.
Although the Los Angeles Lakers had a miserable night at Crypto.com Arena, giving up a 17-point lead in the fourth quarter against the Indiana Pacers on Andrew Nemhardt’s last-second 3-pointer, they showed the world why fans of Los Angeles is the most fun and hardcore in the entire NBA.
We previously covered Jamie Murray, an Amazon delivery man who wins a $75,000 prize as a gym rat.
Now it’s time to meet the Lakers MVP of the night, another fan, Annika Hutler, an amputee Navy veteran who drank beer out of her prosthetic leg to become the fastest fan in the game.
As you can see, the Lakers’ Jumbotron Murray had the best game, but he immediately called him a fan of the game.
ESPNLA’s Mason and Ireland shed some light on the Hutsler story yesterday, as well as a better look at the Chig recruiting:
Hitler has an interesting story to explore on his personal YouTube page:
He clearly didn’t let the injury affect his zest for life or his infectious spirit. It’s always fun to see Lakers fans thrive like this.
While the Lakers’ performance on Monday night left a lot to be desired, their fans’ dedication to the stands, the field and shooting for the crowd was never in question. It’s a shame to be burdened by a front office and ownership group that doesn’t seem to know how to really build a team with longtime Lakers fans with three winning seasons left.
Lakers fans clearly deserve the world. Let’s hope the team will make them again as soon as possible.
