Tony Gaffney was thrilled to receive an invitation to training camp with the defending champion Lakers.
Gaffney, a former UMass forward, hasn't had a problem switching allegiances from the Celtics to the Lakers.
"The second I got the call from the Lakers, the day after the draft, I immediately turned into a diehard Lakers fan," Gaffney told Hoopsworld.com. "I put the Boston Celtics behind me and now I'm ready to beat the Celtics with everything I've got. As of right now, I'm a Laker and I love wearing purple and gold."
