Lakers’ Ivica Zubac Learning Rap Culture, Enjoys American Breakfast

March 1, 2017

The Lakers might be losing. And they won’t be in the playoffs. But their young core of players have been tight all season; especially second year forward Larry Nance Jr. and Croatian rookie Ivica Zubac.



After the Lakers 109-104 loss to the Charlotte Hornets Tuesday night, I caught up with Nance post-game, who was wearing an epic custom ‘ZUPAC’ shirt. It was an homage to Zubac being one of his ‘boys’ wearing the famous late rapper Tupac Shakur’s headband.



Nance said he is teaching Zubac about rap culture while still picking up Croatian language from the Herzegovina native throughout the season. Zubac doesn’t care much for the nicknames but he disclosed that breakfast is the only food he has liked in America so far.

    He’s already better than Larry Nance Jr.

    I think he’ll have a nice spike in production next season.

    Ivica really showing some great potential this season.

    Things looking quite promising for Croatian hoops lately especially with saric moving to rookie of the year front runner lately

    We need some more talent at the guards though ! Will be tough to play all the big guys in the future…zubac,daric , bender, zizic
