A Lakers fan who was attending a NBA Summer League match found himself at the mercy of several haymakers in Las Vegas Sunday.
The Los Angeles fan was visible moving about, throwing his hat and shouting at everyone at the Thomas & Mack Center. A Carmelo Anthony fan sitting nearby got fed up with his antics, and ran after him. Although it is not clear what caused the attack, the result was quite definitive.

While the precise provocation might not have been clear, it’s clear that the Laker fan had been being disruptive and not someone you would want to sit next to. The guy wearing the Melo jersey clearly didn’t want to be around him. It was a rough season for the Lakers in 2022, the offseason doesn’t appear to be treating them any better.
