With a lot of help from Lakers Guy, the LA Lakers once again have led the NBA in merchandise sales.
According to ESPN,the bandwagon has been crowded and growing for some time. ‘Showtime’ has held the merchandise crown 7 out of the last 8 years. For a state racked in debt and unemployment, its pretty remarkable the masses that reside there can afford $25 foam fingers, $80 jerseys and $30 hats in such quantities. Frump was able to contact “Lakers Guy” (pictured above) for this exclusive interview.

Frump: So it must be so thrilling to be affiliated with an organization like the Lakers. How do you describe your fan-hood and what cheering on the Lakers means to you?

Frump: Yes…I mentioned that. Number one in merchandise sales.
LG: Yeah. Number one. Dont forget it. Everything I do is number one.
Frump: Uh, ok…
Frump: Moving on, you may or may not know that Frumpzilla is based out of North Carolina and one of the prominent role players on the Lakers went to NC State – Josh Powell, whose path to the NBA has been a long and arduous one. Can you talk about his influence on the team and his ability to step in and give valuable front court minutes?
LG: Where? Who? Arduous?

LG: Dude, you cant just make up players and expect me to know them. I can barely remember the different broad’s names I smash here everynight. AMIRITE?? Want a bump?
Frump: Well I can see, despite your chain, that you basically know nothing about the Lakers, may have a drug problem and definitely are a Hep C carrier. Its best I leave before I butt-inherit an STD from your imitation leather couch cushion.
LG: Not sure what Hep C is, but if I have it, it must be number 1.
