The Los Angeles Lakers may be one of the most depleted teams in the league, but they still have plenty of fans scattered around the league. This is evident when they are on the road – there are almost always sections of Lakers fans in purple and gold, cheering them on.
On Friday, seldom-used rookie Rudy Gobert apparently heard some of those cheers for the Lakers at EnergySolutions Arena and had this to say after the contest:
Shoutout to all the lakers fans in utah

That’s a great touch of sarcasm with the sad smiley face at the end of the tweet, given that his team managed to beat the Lakers 105-103 on a fantastic putback dunk by Derrick Favors.
