Always read the fine print.
That's the point Hasan Minhaj, a lifelong Kings fan, made to his audience in the latest episode of "Patriot Act," Netflix's weekly news comedy show. Minhaj used Kings general manager Vlade Divac to do it.
In an exposé on the ways the cruise industry mistreats and exploits workers while also putting passengers in harm's way, Minhaj highlighted the ridiculousness of the fine print on many cruise line's tickets. Noting that most people don't read the fine print, Minhaj informed his studio audience that everyone attending now has to name their next child Vlade Divac.
"Congratulations, your baby is now Serbian!" Minhaj joked.
Minhaj met the namesake of his audience's future newborns back on March 23, and he sat courtside with owner Vivek Ranadivé during the Kings' win over the Phoenix Suns that night.
If you know me, you know what the @sacramentokings mean to me. Long live Sacto. Long live Vlade. Long live our young squad with ♾ potential. #ForeverPurple pic.twitter.com/nVoCnuypOb— Hasan Minhaj (@hasanminhaj) March 24, 2019
Because of his diehard Kings fandom, Minhaj might not have been that disappointed if he was in the audience.
"I rep in [New York] and I'm evangelizing," Minhaj told Kings.com in March. "I'm spreading the purple gospel … You guys have no idea how much I love the Kings and if you don't love the Kings, you don't love NBA basketball."
Minhaj was born and raised in nearby Davis, attending UC Davis as an undergrad. He told Kings.com he has been a fan of the Kings since 1992 -- back when Mitch Richmond and Spud Webb, among others, called Sacramento home.
"Patriot Act" drops new episodes every Sunday, in case you're on the lookout for future streaming-media references to, say, Chris Webber.
