Not every fan is as insecure as Laker fan. You would never see Laker fans give any player props during a game who wasn't wearing purple and gold. Wade or Lebron could go for 70 at Staples and all most Laker fans would do is whine and make excuses.
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.
You obvioulsy dont understand sports rivalries. Laker fans oooh and aaah over other players on other teams, but never cheer for a Celtic player. That would be like me as a Charger fan rooting for a Raider
Kill me now.
