Default Who is the more hated franchise Laker or Yankees?

I have been watching sports for a long time I grew up in Laker country and have always dealt with Laker haters and they seem to be everywhere. Even teams the Lakers have never had rivalries with the bottom of the basement teams that are nothing have fans that truly hate the Lakers. I have seen the same thing in the MLB with the Yankees people despise them and much like Laker haters they seem to be everywhere. So I thought that this would be a good debate who is the more hated franchise Laker or Yankees?


Feel free to add a different team if you believe there more hated then both (NFL example The Cowboys.)


I guess I would have to go with the Yankees even though I have been around a lot of Laker hate the Yankees seem to have a almost cult following of haters

These two teams should just be the target of North Korea's nuke tests. Then the world will be filled with joy and love.

Yep. There isn't a huge percentage of people who hate the Lakers, but definitely the most in the NBA. With the Yankees, if you don't like them you hate them. If i gavea f*ck about baseball i'd probably hate the yankees, but that sport is so boring i can't watch more than 7 inninings.

How do you watch 7 innings? I can't even get myself to watch 7 minutes, it's like watching Golf.

Haha, that's so wrong, but sometimes I feel this way. I don't hate the Lakers all that much, all though I don't like them in any way (Go Cavs!), but I cannot stand the Yankees. I hate everything about that team. I got a good smile and a good laugh out of their recent elimination from the playoffs.

Yankees should be more hated (by their huge salary payouts), but Lakers are who i hate more. How does a team lose with Kobe and a 3-1 Series lead?

I watch golf a lot during the spring, but when July comes I quit golfing until the season starts the next spring. I went to a college world series game for the first time this year, and left after teh seventh inning. I was with other people or I would have left earlier, and it was even one of the better games of the whole CWS.

good topic, i definetely dislike both the lakers and the yankees... not hate, but strongly dislike.

i also hate the knicks though, so i think it has something to do with NY and their fans. it's fun to hate on NY teams as well as when their team loses, some 50 million people are pissed... makes me feel good inside, not sure why.

The Yankees by far. People that don't even like baseball hate the Yankees. By some people reactions, you'd think that by telling them that you're a Yankees fan you told them that you're a crack addict or that you go out with 13 year old girls.

My brother is a Texas Rangers fan and he roots for two things during the MLB season-the Rangers to win the AL West(which will never happen) and the Yankees to lose(which he doesn't think happens enough). He was unbearable this weekend with the whole,"the Yankees are out!" nonsense.

The Yankees are way more hated then the Lakers. I don't even know if the lakers are the most hated NBA team right now, that may go to Detroit.
