Snoop Dogg’s beloved Los Angeles Lakers escaped with another win on Tuesday night (January 31), but the stress of the tightly-contested game didn’t come without him paying a price as a fan.
Snoop unleashed another Laker-related rant on Instagram after experiencing a whirlwind of emotions from watching the Lakers’ overtime victory over the New York Knicks game. Despite being happy with the dub, the 51-year-old demanded more from the team going forward — for the sake of his health, if nothing else.
“You know what that smile means: the Lakers win. Yes! We find a way!” Snoop said in a video while celebrating the Lakers’ win. “Goddamn, y’all got my nerves bad and my blood pressure high. Goddamn it, figure it out and start winning every night goddamn it! I’m too old for this shit!”
He added in the caption: “Lakers. Win [smiling face emojis] smile. Bitch.”

With the bright lights of Los Angeles, the ups and downs of a Laker fan can be stressful these days. Lebron James and co. edged out the Knicks at Madison Square Garden Tuesday evening with a 129-123 victory in overtime.
King James led the charge with a triple-double that included 28 points, 10 rebounds and 11 assists — passing Mark Jackson and Steve Nash to move into fourth all-time in assists. He’s now just 89 points behind Kareem Abdul-Jabbar for the NBA scoring record.
Even with the win, the Lakers remain outside of the playoff picture with a record of 24-28, but all hope is not lost with Anthony Davis back in the lineup. The team is only two games out of the play-in tournament in the NBA standings.
Regardless of how the season plays out, fans can expect Snoop Dogg to continue to provide his animated commentary on Laker games.
Tha Doggfather can take his mind off the Lakers this weekend when he coaches the AFC in the 2023 Pro Bowl alongside NFL legend Peyton Manning in Las Vegas.
On the other side of the field, Peyton’s brother, Eli Manning, will coach the NFC team with comedian Pete Davidson.
The Pro Bowl matchup will take on a brand new format this year, featuring players competing in a non-contact flag football game. The game will be broadcast live on ESPN/ABC from Allegiant Stadium on February 5 at 3 p.m. ET.
