Sorry, Laker fans, but you know how it goes — jokingly mimic guns with your fingers and get suspended for a year then come back the next season with a gnarly beard. A precedent has been set and those are the rules. The NBA can’t have this kind of pantomimed gunplay poisoning the league.

Good luck three-peating with Theo Ratliff and Sasha Vujacic running the show.

(Note: It should be very obvious that this is a joke and that the Lakers do not have to start Theo Ratliff and Sasha Vujacic. Sorry for any inadvertent heart attacks.)
