NBA Fans React Hilariously To Old Picture Of Tobey Maguire Playing Basketball In A Lakers Jersey: "That's Spiderman, AKA Peja Stojakovic"

The Los Angeles Lakers are arguably the most popular team in the NBA, and certainly to the stars of Hollywood, who also reside in Los Angeles. It's not uncommon to see Lakers gear anywhere across the world, and several celebrities will regularly be seen out and about wearing some form of Lakers merchandise. No wonder Jeanie Buss isn't ever planning on selling

The latest photo that's surfaced is of Tobey Maguire playing basketball in full Lakers gear from a few years ago. Maguire is a well-loved actor, known best for his role as Spiderman in the original trilogy. And thanks to the fact that Maguire is wearing the jersey as well as the shorts, the picture has allowed NBA fans on Twitter to have some fun and make some jokes. 

NBA fan HenryTheBlasian shared the amazing picture of Maguire in a tweet, asking fans jokingly which former NBA player this was. This led to a litany of jokes in the replies, as fans brought up several amazing names from the NBA's history. 

"That's Spiderman, AKA, Peja Stojakovic!"

"That's Baker Mayfield during Week 1 of the NFL season."

"That's former NBA legend, White Chocolate."

"Earth 838- Kobe Maguire."

That's the best player of all time, Kobe Maguire!"

"Don't play now, you know damn well that's Spiderman."

"He stayed in our universe and became a Laker."

"Fr, his spider powers would have made him the GOAT but he wanted to save the world instead."

"People forget Marcelo Huertas was a BUCKET."

"Hated this phase of the Steve Nash career."

"Aaah Tobey, the greatest PG to hit the hard wood for the Laker's during 2000s."

"Sasha Vujacic 'The Machine'."

The multiverse is truly wild, bruh."

Jokes aside, if Spiderman were real and chose to play basketball, MJ might just have lost his spot as the GOAT. The cross between NBA basketball and pop culture has always been a fun feature of the product and its fans and hopefully, more photos like this will continue to pop up on social media.
