Because of the league shutdown, NBA players have agreed to pay cuts. But it seems that Los Angeles Lakers guard Danny Green has found a way to recoup some of the salary he is expected to lose this season.
Green posted a sponsored video on his Instagram page where he hilariously advertised a manscaping product.
The video has been viewed more than 80,000 times as of this posting, as his followers are clearly amused by the color-coded props, witty quips and fact that the 11-year veteran was able to keep a straight face while shooting the ad.
Several NBA players and sports personalities couldn’t help but leave comments on the viral video, including his former Toronto Raptors teammates. Even Lakers star LeBron James was at a loss for words and could just laugh after watching the clip.
There are probably no studies that show that having your nether regions shaved can improve an athlete’s performance. But the Lakers are hoping that Green will be able to continue his solid play once the season resumes.
In his first year with the Lakers, the two-time NBA champion has helped the title contenders to the best record in the Western Conference at 49-14. He has also started in the 61 games he has played in the season.
