Oklahoma City Thunder Forward Paul George & Raiders Quarterback Derek Carr
In case you didn’t know, Derek Carr is a hoops fan, and a die-hard Los Angeles Lakers fan at that.
However, as a resident of the Bay Area, Carr has attended his fair share of Golden State Warriors games, and Tuesday night he was courtside at Oracle Arena for the Warriors bout with the Oklahoma City Thunder.
While Carr has openly expressed his fandom for Lakers legend Kobe Bryant and all things Purple and Gold, he’s also loyal to his roots, and supports all his Fresno State brethren. When No. 4 was a freshman on the football team, NBA All-Star Paul George was a starting forward for the Bulldogs basketball team, and is now a starting forward on the Thunder, and the two have remained in close contact since their college years. Tuesday, Carr watched as his fellow Bulldog dropped 38 points, five rebounds, three assists, and six steals in the 125-105 Thunder win.
Following the game, the two had some time to catch up.
