That's not his nickname with the Los Angeles Lakers. Nobody calls him that on the Los Angeles Lakers. That was his nickname in the University of California at Los Angeles:

Nobody looks a certain religion. He's half Persian (Iranian) and half Black.

jewish men do own about 50% of the teams however. old jewish guys own every team in the eastern central division i think. reinsdorf, gilbert, davidson, simon, and kohl are all jewish.


The Maloof Brothers are Middle Eastern, but I don't think they're Muslim.
