Seeing him fail and he will

Should be the most fun for lebron-haters of his entire career

Even better than 04-18'

We'll be comparing his shortcomings and crap brand of ball to kobe's championships all... day.... long

kobe was bigger than the lakers franchise. hes the most polarizing player ever and has a cult following in some parts of the world like john lennon/elvis/jesus have in america ...his fans were far more concerned with his success than the lakers ( me being one of them )

i liked the lakers after kobe retired but i didn't love them. seeing lebron fail is far more interesting than seeing lonzo ball/ingram succeed. the ONLY way kobe fans would have accepted lebron is if kobe was still there. i think the only guys that accepted lebron are really old or really young/live in LA/never cared too deeply for kobe


the fact that lebron stans/media worshippers trashed kobe for the last 15 years and manipulated biased rankings to somehow elevate lebron by devaluing kobe made it almost impossible to appreciate anything about lebron.

MJ fans used to be on Lebrons side and against kobe back in the day. but now the fans and media are trying to discredit MJ and his accomplishments... its terrorist/propaganda that insults the game and its history. seeing lebron fail is far too entertaining and happens so often it almost seems like a yearly tradition.


the lakers haven't been "THE LAKERS" since jerry buss's illness took over and his kids had to start running things. their penny pinching/poor moves have distanced many fans and turned off many hardcore followers even before the lebron signing. this is only the final nail in the coffin


the lakers were never a brand. they were a culture... and that culture is dead.

Seeing the Lakers improve. The Lakers improvement means so much to the continued success of the League and LeBron's legacy. Dude is already among the greatest of all times. The Lakers have gone from 26 wins to 35 wins under Luke's leadership. Now with the greatest player in the League & World joining the greatest team in the NBA, Laker Nation wants to see this team improve and get back to its rightful place...Top of the League.

Bran will fail, but not because I want him to, but because it's in his nature.

If you are a true Lakers fan, you would want them to succeed no matter what circumstances present themselves. Championship is the only thing that matters in LA. Everything else is excessive noise.

This.
If they fail, as a consolation, Lebron will be the human pinata
