College Football Player Makes a Basket from the Stands during Lakers Shootaround

Thursday April 17th, 2014

A group of athletes from Nicholls State University attended the Lakers-Spurs game last night, and football/baseball player Byron Cobb showed he has the potential to be a three-sport athlete by nailing a shot from four rows deep.

Los Angeles assistant coach Mark Madsen immediately says to "sign 'em up," which, considering the Lakers injury situation this season, is not that big of a stretch.

As with all posts involving Mark Madsen, even tangentially, I am now required to post this video. Sorry Mark.
