But that shouldn’t be the case in this example. Former Golden State Warriors player Juan Toscano-Anderson recently left the Warriors to affix forces with the Los Angeles Lakers.

Fans were nostalgic and left in blues as they saw one in all their favorite players in a Los Angeles Lakers jersey because the Golden State Warriors went up against the Los Angeles Lakers within the preseason. One fan commented, “rattling wish he was still with us.” While one other Twitter user commented, “seeing him in Lakers gear feels flawed.”

This was not the primary player to go away the Golden State Warriors to affix the Los Angeles Lakers. Kent Bazemore was one other player who took a pay cut to affix the star-studded team of LeBron James, Anthony Davis, and Russell Westbrook. Nevertheless, the Lakers even didn’t make the playoffs that season.

Juan Toscano-Anderson is a native of East Oakland, California. So for fans to see a native of California playing for an additional team is understandably hard.  Let’s hope that he has a good higher profession as a player with the Los Angeles Lakers than he did with the Golden State Warriors.
