Lakers fan turns Kobe Bryant jersey into a Lonzo Ball one with a marker and duct tape

If you turn your Kobe Bryant jersey into a Lonzo Ball jersey with duct tape, you're not a big baller.

Necessity is the mother of invention. One day you wake up and think, “I really want that new Lonzo jersey,” then you realize you have a Kobe Bryant jersey, a marker, and some duct tape.

This fool #GTFOH!

On the one hand, you can take this as some grand slight to Kobe. Taping over the name of one of the greatest players of all time to jury-rig it into a Lonzo Ball jersey is a serious affront, but on the other hand this is a thrifty and smart move. Hear me out.

You should never, ever buy a rookie’s jersey. Ever. There are no exceptions to this. It doesn’t matter if they seem like a once-in-a-generation lock to be a superstar — they might not be. You can show a little self control and wait to see how it plays out. This Bryant-turned-Ball monstrosity is simply thrifty.

That said, duct taping over a Kobe jersey definitely doesn’t make you a big baller.
