The Los Angeles Lakers point guard Dennis Schroder had an Instagram livestream and someone typed ‘Nets in four’ in chat, presumably suggesting that the Brooklyn Nets will defeat the reigning NBA champions in the Finals in four games.

The German star did not appreciate the comment apparently. “My boy said in the chat ‘Nets in four.’ I told him ‘Nets in four my a*s,’ Schroder said.

The Nets and the Lakers are among the favorites to come out of the Eastern and Western conferences and meet in the Finals.

Currently, Brooklyn is second in the East, behind Philadelphia, while Los Angeles is fifth in the West.
