Even though it has been a short Laker week due to All Star break, it was definitely an eventful one. Twitter had a lot to say about the big losses to the Heat and Clippers and the win against the Suns. They was also a lot of talk about a security guard at a recent home game. Here are Laker Nation’s Tweets of the Week!
Lil Wayne claimed he was kicked out for being a Laker fan at the game against the Heat. Was it not the sizzurp Weezy? (Laker Nation has no evidence of Lil Wayne possessing sizzurp at the American Airlines Arena)

Morgan, I’m not sure you’d be able to stomach some of the lengths Laker Nation would go to for tickets.
I think I have some self-respect but I just threw up thinking about the things I’d do for courtside seats at the Lakers/Clippers game.

Who knew Flea and Khloe share the same type?!
The clippers have 2 of my least favorite lakers ever, Barnes and butler, and one of my alltime favorite lakers the beautiful Lamar odom

Ok, the idea of Mike D’Antoni even knowing what twerking is, is hilarious.
D’antoni and Nash appeared to be arguing with the ref about what does and does not constitute twerking.
