Ice Cube says the Lakers will win the NBA championship this season

It is common knowledge the Los Angeles Lakers have much of Hollywood and show business in general behind them.

Numerous celebrities are Lakers fans, or at least attend games from time to time. One die-hard fan of the Purple and Gold is O’Shea Jackson Sr., the rapper, songwriter, actor and filmmaker known to the public as Ice Cube.

He grew up in the Southland in the 1970s and 1980s as a fan of the Showtime Lakers, and he has been vocal in his support of the team ever since he became a household name. Most notably, he mentioned the team in his seminal hit from 1993 “It Was A Good Day.”

On a recent episode of ESPN’s “First Take,” Jackson was asked by Stephen A. Smith where the Lakers will end up this coming season, and he replied by simply saying “championship” (h/t Lakers Daily).

No one was more shocked than @stephenasmith 😅

The Lakers miraculously turned their season around with some midseason trades that took them from a struggling, mediocre squad to one that reached the Western Conference finals.

They should be better this fall simply by virtue of retaining D’Angelo Russell, Rui Hachimura and Austin Reaves in free agency and having a full training camp together. But Los Angeles also added Gabe Vincent, Taurean Prince and Jaxson Hayes, who could fill some roster holes it had.

Perhaps a day in June 2024 will be a good day again for Ice Cube and the Lakers if the team ends up lifting the Larry O’Brien Trophy.
