Awesome! Kid Fakes Out NBA Cameraman on Opening Night in L.A., Holds Up Shirt Supporting Hong Kong


There’s awesome, and then there’s this kid.

During a break in the action on the NBA’s opening night matchup between LeBron James’ Los Angeles Lakers and Kawhi Leonard’s Los Angeles Clippers, the camera man was panning around the Staples Center crowd for a few animated Clippers fans when he came across the young man holding up his Clippers t-shirt.

Unfortunately for the cameraman, that wasn’t the only shirt the kid was holding.

Take a look:

Simply amazing! The kid essentially pulled a Jedi mind trick on the camera guy and snuck in a jab at the NBA by holding up his “FIGHT FOR FREEDOM STAND WITH HONG KONG” shirt.

What was even funnier was the “oh crap” moment the cameraman had in trying to get the kid and the shirt off camera.

The NBA has been attempting to mend their billion dollar relationship with China ever since Houston Rockets General Manager Daryl Morey tweeted his support for Hong Kong while the NBA was in China playing preseason games.

China is apparently continuing their temper tantrum over free speech by not showing games from the NBA’s opening night on Chinese state television.

Waaah! I hope there are more people like this kid in the opening days of the NBA season. People like him might make covering what I once loved, sports, bearable this year.
