Alex Caruso’s look-a-like shows up at the Lakers-Bulls game

Alex Caruso was a big part of the Los Angeles Lakers team that won the NBA Finals back in 2020.

In fact, in his first game back at the Staples Center as a visiting member of the Chicago Bulls, he even got a video tribute from his old team.

Oh, and his look-a-like was there too.

Maybe if the real Caruso couldn’t play for the Lakers, the one in the stands could?

His old buddy, LeBron James, was excited to see him back on Monday night.
