wouldn't that bitterness be better pointed at the ownership of the team you cheer for?

So you're saying if I take out my anger on my own team that will make things better?

easy for you to say, If your team sucks you just have to wait a few years. While for so many other fans, they may never see their team win a championship in their lifetime.

You're going to have to wait until after Bynum retires.

Naw, it's easier to hate the Lakers than to admit the shortcomings of the team they are emotionally invested in.

I developed a hatred for the Celtics back in the 60's, Knicks and Bucks in the 70's. Same thing with the UCLA Bruins basketball team in the 60's and 70's when you're a USC fan.

You ever watch Jerry Springer and when someone's wife or girlfriend cheats on them and they get mad at and want to fight the person their SO has cheated with instead of being angry with their wife/girlfriend? Same basic principle applies here.

Kind of bizarre and illogical, but simple human nature. If they can somehow paint the Lakers as villains (NBA/Stern/referees favor them, Kobe's a ******, Kobe's an a-hole, Shaq is a bully, Sasha is annoying, fans are annoying - whatever), it will then seem logical and therefore justify their hatred.

Other sports franchises/figures that get the same treatment year after year include: New York Yankees, Boston Celtics, Dallas Cowboys, Jeff Gordon & Manchester United.

I don't get too worked up over it because it's a sign that the Lakers have been very successful and it comes with the turf. I'd still rather deal with that than with what happens when your team is not as successful.

So, I'm looking forward to all the lame reasons and conspiracy theories that the misdirected passion the haters possess will bring.

Party on Garth

Typical Lakers fan, thinks they are just entitled to having great players fall in their lap.

Yea we should be mad at our team for not trading nothing for Pau Gasol, or having players that refulse to play anywhere else but for our small market team. You guys are so ****ing spoiled it's disgusting.

That's a ridiculous statement. How exactly did I come off as thinking I am "entitled" to having great players fall into the Laker's lap?

I have nothing to do with who plays where and I'm not going to hate the team for the deals they make. There are several other teams, 'big market' and otherwise that squander away what they have. The Knicks, Nets, Clippers and Bulls come immediately to mind as far as so called 'big market' teams that have not been able to perrenially capitalize on their supposedly advantageous market situations, so I can't really support the notion that it's all about whether or not a team is in a big market. There's more to it than that or the Knicks would be more like the Yankees and the Clippers are right here in the same town (for 25 years) so maybe it actually DOES have quite a bit to do with a team's management afterall.

well ask yourself this do you think your owner will do anything if you point your anger at the celtics? or would he respond better if he knew his fan base was upset?

it's not the lakers, celtics, cavs or spurs fault your team is not doing so well, it's the fault of the owner of your team on down... to be mad at another teams fans or the team itself is childish

should clippers fans be mad at the lakers? no you blame sterling and dunleavy, it's not dr. buss's fault, or the coaching staffs fault or the lakers fans who are to blame for the clippers failings...

Naw dude, Stern has moved on to the Heat. He went all in on the Heat in 2012. Miami is the present and future of biased officiating.

Yes indeed.
It should stay that way forever.
