Ty Lawson’s Car While In Europe Would Be A Horrible Getaway Vehicle

To keep playing basketball during the NBA lockout, Denver Nuggets point guard Ty Lawson opted to sign on with Lithuanian team Zalgiris Kaunas​. As part of his deal with the team, Zalgiris Kaunas provided him a spiffy little Renault to tool around in and get back and forth from games and practices. As you can see, Lawson’s name is prominently featured on the driver’s door panel as well as his signature and what I presume to be the team’s logo, which leads me to the assumption that this would be a terrible automobile to use to pull off bank robberies. Or speed away after an unfortunate hit and run. Or attempting to travel incognito through the streets of Lithuania. Or trying to not look like a huge dork.

But hey, it was free. And he is in Europe, after all. They’re all weird over there anyway. Maybe all Europeans have their names on the side of their cars. I guess it would make for less occurrences of road rage, or at the very least, you could cuss out a person who cut you off by name. That would be nice.
