It takes a lot to get Los Angeles Lakers to get up on their feet and applaud for something not related to their team. Sunday afternoon was one of those rare moments and it was certainly justifiable.
Needless to say, Sunday’s contest was not necessarily one Lakers fans want to cling onto. It marked the team’s third loss of the season at the hands of the pesky Dallas Mavericks.
Despite the loss, the Staples Center faithful was given quite a treat. Mavericks legend Dirk Nowitzki was in attendance and the Lakers took full advantage of his presence.
