Whether what he said is valid or not you just need to shut thee f*ck up. Or is it me? Because you still have to prove you can stay on the court long enough to help a team. So why run your mouth when you have to prove not only that but if you are a leader, franchise caliber player and most importantly have matured?
Funny coming from me as these were things Lakers fans said when Sixers landed the big Goof. I just think the year he had which was non existent he should keep his opinions to himself. Prove yourself then run your mouth and tell people to kiss your ass. Again, maybe its just me.
Sidenote: Are Cavs fans any more passionate than Lakers fans?
I agree that many fans in the LA area are pretty serious about their Lakers, but I also agree that the crowd in Staples center is pretty weak. Way less energy than at a Kings game - the past 3-5 years excepted. Warriors games, Trailblazers games, Jazz games, Celtics games... all way more passion than Lakers games.
The funny thing about people making fun of Los Angeles is that L.A. made the Lakers who they are right now.
Do you honestly think the Lakers would be this popular if they were still in Minnesota? Heck, they don't even support the Wolves.
It's because of L.A. that Magic's team were coined Showtime. A name and reputation that lived with the organization. With that, it came a winning tradition from Shaq to Kobe and to whomever in the future.
Without L.A. nobody would want to come to the Lakers.
Why do you think most players spend their summers in L.A., train and live here too.
Derrick Rose, KG and Melo have houses here. Lebron was just here. They love L.A.
The Lakers fans who can afford seats are all horrible fans. However, the city itself is quite passionate. CLE fans are the best fans in the world though when it comes to sticking through thick and thin.
Laker fans are the most fickle bandwagon fans in the world, wtf are you guys smoking. Not only that but they're one of the dumbest fans there is. A large portion don't know shit about basketball outside their own team.
Wanna know how "loyal" they are?
They jumped on the Clippers' bandwagon as soon as they got big.
What you see displayed on tv is a true reflection of their overall fan base.
Somebody mentioned "cholos" earlier. Those beaners are loyal but also one of the dumbest most ignorant in the NBA. They don't follow basketball nor do they really care. They just watch laker games and that's it.
