6. Bose IE2 Headphones
Speaking of listening to a broadcast during the game, if you’re going to go to the trouble of firing up the radio app then you’ll need a pair of quality headphones to take in the play-by-play. That’s where the Bose IE2 Headphones come in. Besides providing Bose’s signature sound quality and noise isolation features, these headphones also feature patented StayHear tips that keep the buds locked comfortably in place. Whether you’re doing the radio thing or just listening to some tunes during halftime on your smartphone, the IE2’s are the perfect complement.
7. New Era Cap
One of the most common and stylish ways to show your support of the team? Get yourself a quality team cap and call it a day. New Era Lakers caps come in a variety of designs, from the 2 Tone Snapback to the Retro Royal Blue (pictured right) to the Purple-Gold Vintage Scripter. All hats feature high quality team logo or text embroidery, 100% cotton construction and are officially licensed by the NBA.
8. Lytro Light Field Camera
What if there is was a camera that allowed you to take pictures then focus the image after the shot was already stored? Well, that’s exactly the capability offered by the Lytro Light Field Camera. This brand new technology works by using light fields to focus on every angle of a photograph once it’s snapped, not just the angle the photographer chooses in the moment. The data is then stored on board on the camera and can be manipulated later to create the perfect shot. The simple two button design allows you to shoot now and ask questions later. So next time you snap that choice photograph of Kobe throwing it down over the opposing center you won’t have to worry if you got the perfect focus. At least, not if you use the Lytro.
9. Lakers Foam Finger
An in stadium classic, the foam finger is one of the most time honored fan traditions in recent sports history. And if you think it’s cheesy, over the top or played out, think again. Case in point, if it’s good enough for Snoop Dogg (pictured right) then it should be good enough for you. Seriously, who is cooler than Snoop? As an aside, if you do sport the finger at the game try to be a courteous neighbor and not wave the finger into the air during a key play so as to obstruct the view of the folks sitting behind you. Well, unless they’re Celtics fans. In that case, wave away!
10. Deuce Brand Bracelet Watch
Sleek. Stylish. Subtle. The Deuce Brand bracelet watch is a sporty alternative to the the wrist watch constructed using a soft medical grade silicone rubber that is so light and comfortable you’ll hardly notice it’s even there. Best off all, the folks over at Deuce have produced a custom Lakers edition that will let you rep the purple and gold morning, noon and night. Great to wear at your next Lakers home game or when you hit up the local rec to play pick-up.
