Everyone Congratulate The Lakers On Their Playoff Run

| by Jonathan Wolfe

The Lakers just wrapped up one of the worst seasons in franchise history, but that didn’t stop a local restaurant from celebrating the team's playoff run. Wait, what?

I’m guessing they were trolling the Kobes, but this is funny nonetheless. It’s funny because one: the obvious, and two: even when the Clippers make the playoffs and the Lakers are horrible, local businesses still buy advertisements about the Lakers. Such is life as the second-class team in LA.
