Could it be that Orlando Magic big man Robin Lopez is a fan of Boston sports teams? After news broke that Staples Center, the home arena of the Los Angeles Lakers and Los Angeles Clippers, will soon be known as “Crypto.com Arena” after the eponymous website for trading cryptocurrency purchased the naming rights to the arena, Lopez took to Twitter with some jokes as many did on Wednesday.

“Slightly disappointed AEG/Crypto.com Arena outbid the city of Boston, who was going to rename Staples Center ‘(expletive) The Lakers Go Pats’ Performing Arts Center,” jested the longtime Celtics foil, who is known to have a sense of humor to match his considerable size as a human being.

Whether it’s a dig at Bostonian sports fans — known to be among the most gung-ho around the league — or an admission on the part of Lopez he’d actually have preferred such a name, he was one of very many to make jokes about the awkward name for the new arena which certainly doesn’t roll off of one’s tongue.
