I hate that damn Lakers Live Wire segment that they do during the second quarter of some Laker games. For those that have never witnessed it, it's an in-game interview with a notable spectator at Staplescenter; you're still watching the game, but you're getting the audio from some inane interview at the same time.
I mean, it sounds like it should be OK. You can still watch the game. You hear less Joel Meyers, which is always good. And sometimes, when the interviewee is particularly insightful (Rick Fox comes to mind), there's actually some value added. But that's not what usually happens. Unfortunately, it's usually some actor or director plugging some horrible project and all it really does is perpetuate the god awful stereotype that the real interest at Laker games is in the stands and not on the court.
But last night's Lakers Live Wire was highly enjoyable. First of all, the guest was Dodger outfielder Matt Kemp. Considering the huge cross-section of Laker fans and Dodger fans, this type of cross polination could only yield positive results. And it did not disappoint. Right as Matt was about to delve into his personal baskteball history and Laker fandom in general, a pair of L.A.'s finest come waltzing across the screen. Matt's expression says it all.
Besty. Lakers Live Wire. Ever.
