Lakers Fan Looks Smitten With Provocatively Dancing Cheerleaders

The Los Angeles Lakers earned an impressive 128-121 victory over the Detroit Pistons on Friday night.

While beating a 3-13 squad at home generally isn’t a big deal, it becomes a slightly bigger milestone when you too only have three wins on the year coming into the outing.

That said, because this was a battle of awful squads, Lakers fans understandably had to make their own fun in the stands.

And that is precisely what one enterprising man seemed to do. The viral video largely speaks for itself:

With Twitter being what it is and social media being the perfect avenue for something like this, reactions started to pour in swiftly.

The responses were largely what you would expect:

For what it is worth, it is impossible to know what the Lakers fan was actually staring at with his binoculars. It could have been something else in the stands. It could have been the cheerleaders. It could have been anything.

Folks at home just happened to choose the funniest interpretation.

This isn’t like the Detroit Lions fan who was busted taking provocative photos of the cheerleaders at last week’s outing. That guy was just being obvious.

By any objective measure, this has been an unfortunate year for the Lakers thus far. It’s nice that they are on a two-game winning streak, but they’re still 14th in the Western Conference at the moment.

Aside from being one of three suitors for a trade centering around Gordon Hayward and one of two squads interested in Bojan Bogdanovic, it is also hard to see them improving the roster much from here.

Was Friday night the beginning of a run that will return some semblance of respectability to the Lakers?

Will L.A. fans finally start having something fun to watch at games besides the cheerleaders?

Time will tell.
