The Los Angeles Lakers have once made it into the NBA Playoffs again this year, after missing the postseason in 2022, and their slew of famous fans are enjoying every minute of it.
The Lakers have been in 62 playoffs over the course of their iconic run, most recently winning the championship in 2020 thanks in part to their star player LeBron James.
One of the team’s most fervent fans is Snoop Dogg, who got a tattoo in honor of the Lakers in 2020. In a clip shared to Instagram, he showed the detailed tattoo designed and executed by artist Mister Cartoon. “As you see, tat is done,” Snoop explains. “KB on the bottom, Kobe Bryant, Larry O’Brien championship trophy with the Lakers going through the ball, gates of heaven up top and it don’t stop. Laker nation!”
The ink came less than a year after Bryant tragically died along with his daughter Gianna in a helicopter crash in January 2020.
In honor of the Lakers and to celebrate their place in the playoffs this year, we’ve compiled a gallery of famous musicians who are also fans of the LA basketball team. See the photos below.
