People on Twitter immediately started saying the Lakers should respond by offering the fan a 10-day contract. What’s funny is that Nigel Hayes, recently signed to an actual 10-day contract with the team, won’t even make $100K for that stretch with the team.
The fan identified himself to a reporter as Suni Strong, a 27-year-old who works for both SpaceX … and as a bounty hunter. We’re guessing at least one of those jobs is a joke, but it’s hard to hold it against Strong.
You’d be giddy too if you sunk that long of a shot to win that much money.
