Lakers Fans Flocked To The Culver City Blaze Pizza To Maybe See LeBron

As you might have heard, it’s ridiculously hot in Los Angeles these days. It’s come down a bit from the 120-degree hell from last week, but still rather uncomfortable. That, however, hasn’t stopped Lakers fans from lining up at the Blaze Pizza in Culver City in hopes of seeing LeBron James.

Bron Bron, of course, hinted on Twitter Monday that he might stop by for a pizza party at that location:

Haven’t been to a pizza party in a minute 🤔 Culver City? 👀🍕 https://t.co/1QxgALyekK

He didn’t guarantee an appearance, but that thinking face emoji was all thousands of Lakers fans, who probably loathed LeBron up until they realized he might actually come to LA, needed to drop whatever they had going on today:

All of this hoopla just to see LeBron at a pizza joint, and as of now the guy hasn’t even showed up! Tweets from the ground indicate “morale is low” among the Lakers fans.

People thought LeBron would be here by 2:30. It’s 4:00 now. The Blaze CMO is unsure if LeBron is coming. Morale is low.

It’s 4:21 p.m. Still no LeBron. People are offering cash for portable chargers and debating if it’s worth going to Chipotle. Children, once jubilantly dribbling basketballs, are now unmistakably glum.

Update: The promotion is over and no Bron!

It’s 5:00. The free pizza event at @BlazePizza is over. LeBron is not here. The “line” has turned into a mob around the front door. People are hungry. People are upset. People are asking, “Why?”

Put it down in the books: Lakers fans were first let down by Bron Bron on July 10 at the CC Blaze Pizza. On the plus side, there were free pies.

Some think Kobe would at least show face, because, of course, they do:

Doubt is growing over whether LeBron will show up. Said one Laker fan losing his patience: “Kobe would show. He wouldn’t get out of his car, but he’d show up.”
