Everyone’s path to becoming a Lakers fan is different — some are born into it, while others don’t find that connection until much later in life.

On Monday, we asked our followers on Twitter how they became Lakers fans, and on this week’s episode of “Lakers, Explained,” Christian and Harrison went through their favorite responses — from a fan who was born during a Lakers game, to a fan that was inspired by LaVar Ball, the outspoken father of the No. 2 pick in the 2017 NBA Draft, Lonzo Ball.

No, seriously.

Christian and Harrison also shared their stories of how they became Lakers fans, and they reflected on some of their most memorable (and forgettable) moments in the years since.
