The Los Angeles Lakers are set to start the regular season with a home game against the Golden State Warriors. For this occasion, the 17-time NBA champions are handing out a shirt that says “18,997” to their fans.

The number on the shirt refers to the capacity of Staples Center, the home of the Lakers. Interestingly, this number is lower than that of the city rivals the Clippers that use the same venue for their home games (19,060).
