Snoop Dogg makes unfiltered plea to Jeanie Buss to “move some furniture” in bid to restore Lakers glory

The Los Angeles Lakers are not in the greatest condition in the league right now. Approaching the midpoint of the season, their performance can be characterized as a mixed bag, holding an even record of 23 wins and 23 losses.

Having observed the Lakers’ performance this season, famous rapper and long-time fan Snoop Dogg recently recommended that Jeanie Buss, the team’s owner, should consider making significant moves to revive the franchise and bring it back to its former glory.

Snoop Dogg gets into the ear of Jeanie Buss for Lakers clear-out

The iconic rapper Snoop Dogg recently appeared on the “All The Smoke” podcast with Stephen Jackson where he urged the owner of the Lakers to “move some furniture.” By that statement, Snoop hinted at Jeanie Buss to get active in the trade market and consider parting ways with some of the older players who have been with the team.

He said, “Jeanie this is gonna hurt me more than it’s gonna hurt you. We need to move some furniture! We have to move some furniture fast, some big pieces of furniture… Get us some young guns out there, Old Dog (LeBron James) you doing your thing, I’mma give you yours… Jeanie move some furniture around.”

Snoop Dogg made this statement in response to a question about what advice he would give Jeanie Buss regarding the Lakers. While praising LeBron James for his contributions, Snoop criticized other players for their lackluster performance.

He highlighted the team’s struggles against younger players, specifically citing Ja Morant’s impactful game against the Lakers before his injury. Snoop urged Jeanie Buss to consider trading some players and rejuvenating the roster with fresh, young talent to uphold the franchise’s legacy.

In a recent report, Jovan Buha from The Athletic said, “From my understanding, Dejounte Murray is the priority right now, he would be the most likely trade outcome now if I was handicapping the odds. I think they (the Lakers) are the favorites to land him. Again, the big hurdle now is finding that third team.”

Buha supported the rumor connecting Murray to the Lakers and the team’s interest in acquiring him. However, with no official announcement confirming the move, fans, including Snoop Dogg, can only wait and hope for the rumors to materialize.
