VIDEO: Ex-Lakers guard Quinn Cook gets trash talked, taken shot-for-shot by female fan
Quinn Cook was probably just minding his own business at the mall. A simple shootout game likely caught the former Los Angeles Lakers guard’s eye, which led to him flexing his long-range shooting.
But when he faced off against a fan named “Alie”, Quinn Cook immediately met his match. The fan easily matched Cook shot for shot, making all 10 of her attempts just like Cook did. She made sure to sprinkle in some trash talk while doing it too. Perhaps the Lakers should give her a call, instead?
Quinn Cook and this fan went bucket-for-bucket at the mall 🔥

But let’s give props to Quinn Cook for draining all his shots, just like he’s supposed to. Shutting up a feisty fan is a no-win proposition for NBA stars, who have little to gain but risk embarrassment. The 5-year NBA veteran played two seasons with the Lakers, totaling 60 games played with one start. He averaged just 4.3 points in under 10 minutes of action per contest. He shot a decent 36.7% from the three-point line, and has a career mark north of 40%.
The lifelong Lakers fan has had stints with the New Orleans Pelicans, Dallas Mavericks, and most recently the Cleveland Cavaliers. But Quinn Cook made a name for himself during his time with the Golden State Warriors, winning two titles while playing his role with the Dubs.
