Rapper Polo G celebrated Christmas by over paying for court side tickets to watch the L.A. Lakers take on the Brooklyn Nets.
The NBA featured matchup consisted of the Lakers vs. Nets and the return of James Harden since his last game on December 10. Harden went had an amazing not with a 36 point triple double outing. The Lakers who entered the game with a 16-17 record, had their star LeBron James finish with 39 points, but was not enough to snap L.A.’s four game losing streak. “It is what it is. I’ll go back and watch the film and see if there is ways and opportunities I could have been a step sooner or a step faster to a loose ball or a rebound. I had a couple of turnovers tonight. If there was an opportunity, if I didn’t have three turnovers, we maybe could have won,” LeBbron said during the postgame interview.
Despite the lost, LeBron James has now passed Kobe Bryant‘s 395-points milestone through 16 games on Christmas Day and is the first Laker to score 35+ points on Christmas Day since Bryant in 2009.
All those numbers may seem impressive and they are, well except for LeBron’s three turnovers, but none was more outrageous than Polo G’s 75K. That is how much the rapper claims to have paid for court side tickets in Los Angeles. Taking it to his official Twitter account, the Chicago native tweeted, “Paid 75k Fa Dem Lakers vs Nets floor Tickets on gang shit was worth it fasurrrreee.” Caping off his tweet with a fire emoji, the tweet was met with funny replies. Some Twitter users mocked the rapper by saying he was scammed, while another user said, Nah polo spend ur money wisely we don’t want another fetty wap situation.”
Aside from others saying the rapper took an “L”, many suggested the artist release better music. Despite those comments, Polo G had a successful 2021. The rapper released his “Hall Of Fame” album which peaked at number one on the U.S. Billboard 200. Singles such as “Rapstar” and ” Epidemic” helped Polo G’s third studio album to reach gold status.
