Haters will hate. The Lakers are the most successful franchise that has owners intent on winning. This is why they are so successful. Not afraid to spend some money, not afraid to pull a deal. There is a history of winning that goes along with this franchise. Anybody who hates on the Lakers really are jealous that their own teams can't get to the level that the Lakers are at. They don't go through many bad seasons bc they are always actively trying to get better and this makes it attractive for big time players to want to play here.

And how about we put these threads to a rest. There are a lot of laker homers threads I will agree, but the hate ones clutter the board just as much.

Yeah, the same mediocre Lakers who almost upset the powerful 1993 Suns and upset the Sonics in 1995 a year before they made the NBA Finals.

Its not so much that the Lakers are willing to spend the money, its the fact that they have the resources that small market teams would drool over.

Damn right im jealous

by saying it's jealousy, are you implying that if a team were to, over the next decade or however long, reach "the level the lakers are at", that the fans of that now successful team who hated the lakers would suddenly not dislike the lakers anymore?

So true.

Anyways, I always get crap for my join date because it was right around when Gasol got traded to the lakers. But you know what? I don't care. I've been bleeding purple and gold since the eddie jones, nick van exel days (I know, no THAT long ago, but I'm only 20). When Gasol got traded to the Lakers, I was so excited, I needed to find a place to talk about it.

Back to the point, when the Lakers "suck" it's usually not for very long, so good luck with that.

Every time a team gets good/great they are going to get bandwagoners/ frontrunners. It is just the way it is. If the lakers seem to have more than most teams, it is because they are consistently good. Look how long it takes them to reload, even after giant departures like magic/shaq.

Blazers who are consistently good are back after 6 years. Celtics took a long long time, altho they had an unusual amount of tragedy to get past. NYK? Orlando?

It has taken the lakers 1 year out to get back in the post season. Twice.

I remember the exodus after magic and shaq. Fans marching to some greener pastures. Somewhere. As far as I am concerned, they are ball fans. Not laker fans.

I got my Nick Van Exel jersey when the team was mediocre at best, an upsetter who cant contend. I still rock it. People who ask me "who is that" get a lesson, and cats who know just nod.

So, anyway. I feel non laker fans frustration in a way, but have fun waiting. Support your club and do not get eaten up by your frustration with a team you do not rot for... especially the lakes. It is just futile.

That's why Lakers fans say the 90's were weak and it was becuase they were bad in the 90's.

90's Lakers werent as bad as some people try to make them out around here. Nick the Quick, Eddie, Ice (Cedric) Vlad and Elden. They made things fun to watch. Still have my Ceballos autographed Laker jersey pinned up on the wall!
