Since being traded to the Los Angeles Lakers, undrafted second-year guard Kent Bazemore has quickly turned heads. In just two games as a Laker, Bazemore is averaging 16 points per game in 31 minutes of action. The drastic increase in production and playing time is a far cry from Bazemore’s days with the Golden State Warriors, where he failed to log anywhere near 30 minutes a game, much less get off the bench.
As a rookie last season and a right of passage in the NBA, Bazemore was the target of a prank, which resulted in his car being filled with popcorn.
Now in his second year, Bazemore no longer needs to worry about being the focal point of a rookie prank and he can focus on continuing to make an impact with the Lakers and potentially earning a long-term contract with the team.
