The Los Angeles Lakers are on top of their game. Every player played their role the best they could on the court. However, the team still lost with just one point from the Indiana Pacers last night. It was 115-116 on the night where LeBron\’s marked man scored the last 3-pointer to take away the game. Many even believe that the lethargic performance of the 37-year-old became the reason to lose the game. The four-time champ threw in decent points in the game but lacked a presence on the court.
During the game, there was a moment when Hollywood star Vin Diesel stood up behind James and Davis to click a picture. Later everyone found out that the picture had a bigger picture behind it. The fast and Furious megastar wanted to support Brittney Griner with the photograph. He uploaded the photo on Instagram, captioning her name with the post. Meanwhile, the WNBA star is in the worst Russian penal place.
Vin Diesel Attends The Lakers Game For A Reason
Vin Diesel gave a special appearance in the game against the Indiana Pacers to support LA and Brittney Griner. Seemingly the Fast and Furious star took the opportunity to click the photograph with LeBron and Anthony. Later, Vin posted that photo on Instagram on behalf of Britney Griner so she could come back home. However, the picture is now removed from the platform, but it said, \”I need Brittney Griner home before Christmas\”. Apparently, the WNBA player is sentenced to prison for nine years in Russia.
The custom officer caught Griner with a Vape pen in her bag when she went through customs at the airport. Due to the possession of the vape pen, she was imprisoned for nine years under marijuana charges. This gave the Russian government an opportunity to put a prisoner trade on the table. US government tried its best to negotiate if she could do her jail time back in the United States, but the Russians refused. The trade includes Brittney Griner and a US marine who is also in Russian imprisonment. However, the talks on the matter remained quiet as both countries could not settle on a middle ground.
LeBron James Criticizes US Government In Brittney Griner Case
There is no doubt that the WNBA star Brittney is guilty of possessing the vape when searched in customs. But LeBron James criticized the government openly when they failed to bring back Brittney Griner. In this process, the President of America also exchanged letters with the basketball player. But the point that LeBron made is that America should have her back. But the US has miserably failed to cut a deal with the Russian government to bring her back.
