If you look closely at both pictures, you should notice what looks like a Lakers guitar leaned against the wall of Lakers GM Mitch Kupchak’s office. Lakers fans were quick to spot the guitar and wondered how they could get their hands on it:
@Lakers I need that Lakeshow Guitar back there plz

The Lakers twitter account didn’t respond to these tweets, probably because Kupchak received the guitar as a gift back in 2010 from custom guitar design company, Musical Harvest. Their website describes the guitar:
No not just a guitar, it’s a work of art! The LAKERS purple and gold is laid up on a lightweight, low profile maple body with a high gloss finish, and features polished chrome hardware. But there’s more! Each LAKERS championship season is embossed on the frets. “It’s our best work so far!” says Doug Ranno of Musical Harvest, custom guitars. The six string electric guitar was a special gift for Mitch Kupchak General Manager of the Los Angeles Lakers.
Musical Harvest’s website and Facebook page have better pictures of the guitar:
