Laker fans only give props to players who wear purple and gold and as soon as you don't wear purple and gold anymore you're garbage. (see. Shaq) Watch how fast they turn on Kobe if he leaves L.A., which he probably never will.
If Lebron put up 70 at staples he wont get an mvp chant but he would get the respect of the laker fans... but he hasnt dont close to that so i guess it is different.
