Why on God’s Celtic Green Earth would a Laker fan want this T-shirt?


It’s offered on NBA.com’s team store (linked here), for $25.99, with the hopes you’ll purchase it as a St. Patrick’s Day novelty.

We’re OK with the Dodgers wearing green hats during spring training. But a shamrock Lakers’ shirt … You may as well hire a someone dressed as the Lucky Charms guy deliver it to you via Fed Ex.

It’s made by adidas, with the marketing explanation on the site: You’ll love this adidas Originals Los Angeles Lakers super-soft, short-sleeve t-shirt. The high-quality cotton shirt is decorated in St. Patrick’s Day colors and designed with the distressed team logo screen-printed on the chest for a vintage look.

Yeah, vintage Bob Cousy. The Lakers actually have a home game on March 17, versus Philadelphia. That’s a Tuesday night. In case you’re wondering what you may want to wear out to the bars that day.
