At the guard spot, from Atlanta... 21 Savage!
After LeBron James signed to the Los Angeles Lakers earlier this week, NBA fans went insane, reacting to the news in spurts. Quickly following the announcement of LeBron's signing was the Lakers' decision to nab a few questionable free agents. Stacking their roster with Lance Stephenson, Javale McGee, and Rajon Rondo, many have been referring to the 2018-2019 Los Angeles squad as the "meme team." With everybody posting their initial thoughts on the major signing, 21 Savage saw it fit to include himself in the conversation. Posting a self-portrait where he was balling out on the court the other day, Savage remixed the same image, giving it a little Lakers twist.
Unfortunately, the Golden State Warriors had to kill Lakers' fans vibes by signing Demarcus Cousins last night but at least L.A. has a fresh new point guard in 21 Savage. It may not have been reported as Adrian Wojnarowski's latest "Woj Bomb" but 21 is welcoming himself as the newest signee to the team. Recycling the same image of himself handling the basketball, the Atlanta rapper shared a meme referring to himself as a pure shooter. While he has experience toting around a Glock, his skills with the shot are currently unclear. Producer Sonny Digital also chimed in, joking that everybody was heading to the team in a comment.
While LeBron will almost surely be enough to bring the Lakers back into the Playoffs, if they truly want to contend with GSW, they may want to think about adding a few more valuable assets. Who knows? Maybe 21 Savage actually is the answer to stopping Steph Curry & Co.
