Crawford said people went crazy after seeing him at the Lakers game, and many of them tried to grab him and have at least some kind of interaction with the rap superstar.

"Then Tupac goes through. He is ducking and smiling, people are trying to grab him. It was crazy."

Suge Knight also talked about this particular game on September 19, 1996 during an interview with BET.

"After the game he would grab me and be hugging me. Man I had so much fun. Don’t you know this is the first I ever been to a basketball game."

As the interviewer is trying to figure out when the game took place, he asks Jamal if it was on December 16, 1995. Jamal said, yes that sounds about right. The correct date for the game was on February 2nd 1996.
