In July, free-agent forward Lazar Hayward played 14 minutes a game for the Lakers' summer league squad in Las Vegas.
A month later he's featured in the most recent episode of "#Candidly Nicole," an AOL original Web-based series starring fashion designer, actress and author Nicole Richie.
Hayward, a three-year veteran who last played with the Minnesota Timberwolves, is charged with teaching Richie how to play basketball, starting with the very basics.
"What's the rim?" asked Richie at the start of their session.
The 6-foot-6 Hayward shows Richie how to shoot, cross over and even taunt after a blocked shot.
"Do you know what a cross-over is? It’s like dancing," asked Hayward.
"It’s so Broadway," said Richie.
The two bond over conversation, Hayward giving insight into how difficult it can be to a low-minute reserve in the NBA.
