Snoop Dogg Says He'll Sell Lakers Box Seats at Staples Center for '$5' in Expletive-Filled Rant
Snoop Dogg ripped the "goofballs" playing alongside star LeBron James, and called for the firing of coach Luke Walton
Snoop Dogg is fed up with the Los Angeles Lakers’ performance this season, so much so that he’s offering up his box seats for next to nothing.
The “Gin and Juice” rapper went on an expletive-filled rant that went viral in the wake of the Lakers’ Saturday loss to the Phoenix Suns, who have more losses than any other team in the NBA.
In the social media video captured and shared by @NBALakersNation, Snoop, 47, calls for the firing of head coach Luke Walton, who’s led the team since 2016.
“Bad year, man. It was terrible watching my Steelers play this year, and it’s f—–g terrible watching my Lakers play,” he said. “Somebody got to go … Starting with the coach. This s— ain’t going to work. This is not the L.A. way. … Get a slave ship and ship all them sorry m—–f—–s the f— outta here.”
The rapper also took issue with the team’s backing of star LeBron James, who signed a four-year, $154 million contract with the Lakers in July 2018.
“Sick of this trying to act like it’s going to be alright, it’s going to be cool, they going to figure it out, they going to grow,” he said “Get LeBron some f—–g help, because these goofballs ain’t going to do s—. They sorry. They f—–g suck.”
It’s unclear just which “goofballs” Snoop was referring to, though the team is rounded out by players like Lonzo Ball, Brandon Ingram and Kyle Kuzma.
To wrap up his rant, Snoop said he would sell his booth to anyone who wanted it for the low price of $5.
“I got a booth for the next two, three years. This year, y’all can have it,” he said. “Five dollars for the m—–f—–g booth to the Laker games. Five dollars is the price. Anybody can have it, all the homies, hit me, blow me up right now.”
The Lakers have had a rough go of it during the 2018-19 season, especially considering James was sidelined for a month with a groin injury. The team is currently 30-33, meaning they have a difficult road ahead if they want to make it to the playoffs.
Should they miss the playoffs, it’ll mark James’ first time sitting out since 2005.
Snoop’s disappointment has come a long way since he excitedly welcomed James to the team in September.
“Welcome to LA @kingjames 💜💛 thank you for the jersey neffew ! ” he wrote. “Now let’s go get that championship 🏆 time to #StartTheShow @lakers.”
