This is high on the unintentional comedy scale.
Who was the guy in the Lakers PR office that thought this would be a good idea? Have they never heard of phrases “waving the white flag” or “throwing in the white towel”?
It means to surrender or quit. That isn’t the message you want to send to your team when they are about to be swept out of the playoffs. I know it might have cost a little more, but at least make the towels purple or gold. Not that it is going to matter, the Lakers are done, just too many injuries.
Yes, the Lakers are giving away white towels today. You can't make this stuff up folks. http://t.co/KOI32ApsES
