Flakers makes more sense. Can only be used every 20 years or so on average.

Makes sense with a lot of their fans. They have tons of bandwagon, or fake, fans of their team.

Rreally? You replace an L with an F and you got Fakers. I don't call the lakers the fakers, but it isn't like coming up with that derogatory nickname was hard.

Los Angeles Fakers: Fans of the L.A. Lakers who are only fans when the Lakers are good, similar to band wagoners
