Video: Lakers rookies hazed by teammates, forced to”performing songs” for a crowd
NBA Training camp is usually exciting for rookies. It’s where they get their first taste of what it’ll be like playing in the NBA.
However, there is one part of training camp that every team’s rookies dread, and that’s the initiation aspect, aka hazing.
The Los Angeles Lakers practiced in front of a crowd in Santa Barbara, California on Thursday, and afterwards the show began.
It may have been the worst sing off ever, but the crowd was very entertained.
The songs chosen were made by Vanessa Carlton and Katy Perry. While Ingram can be heard singing Rhianna’s Diamonds.
Video courtesy of Jordan Clarkson, Ingram was apparently the most enthusiastic of the bunch, singing his heart out while dressed up in a life size poodle costume.
This being the third day of training camp, the worst of it is probably over.
Now it’s time to get to work, and continue to build the chemistry necessary to succeed under new head coach Luke Walton.
