During an appearance on the “Dan Patrick Show” on Monday, Derek Carr discussed an array of important topics — like the status of his leg, his record-setting contract extension and how he stacks up with the premier quarterbacks in the game.

The Oakland Raiders rising star — and Fresno native — also discussed hoops and whether he roots for the Golden State Warriors of the Los Angeles Lakers.

“You know what, I pull for [the Warriors],” Carr explained. “I've been a Lakers fan since I was little. So, I am a Laker fan, but I do pull for the hometown team — especially [since] there's a lot of good guys on that team to root for.”

But when the Lakers come to Oracle, there's no question which way Carr will be leaning.

“Oh, I'm wearing a Laker jersey,” Carr said. “Steph [Curry] wore a Panther jersey to the Carolina game when they came and played us. So, I would definitely wear my Lakers jersey if they were playing.”
