Default Now that Dwight's a Laker, will he get finally get more stans?

I've commented before on the shocking lack of Dwight stans on ISH. So now that he's on the Lakers, will we finally see more people pumping his game up and denigrating other players in comparison? And now that Bynum is pretty much The Man on a different team, will we finally get a Dwight vs. Bynum rivalry to replace the retarded Kobe vs. Lebron rivalry?

No. There are too many Kobe stans. As long as Kobe is on the team, everyone else will be blamed for losses, including Dwight.

For the most part, big men don't attract fans the way that guards do. Kobe was selling more jerseys than Shaq even before Kobe was good

Dwight will only gain stans after he wins at this point. Laker fans won't become Dwight stans until Kobe is retired.

Both. He'll get more love from Lakers fans but Kobe fans will hate on him and underrate him.

People with as ugly an offensive game as Dwight don't have Stans.

He'll get haters tho.

It could create a real interesting dynamic. Kobe stans who claim to be Lakers fans will get into arguments with Dwight stans who claim to be Lakers fans over who was truly the "lead dog" or best player on the team if they win a championship.

At least it would let us know who the true stans/d***riders are, and who the true Lakers fans are.

I'm not a big fan of either but Kobe is lead dog.....that's fairly obvious...he's Kobe.

Dwight will be a more influential player but at the end of the day he's just not leadership material.

Yao Ming said something interesting when comparing his fan base to Lin's.

He said, Lin will get more fans who will be inspired to play basketball than he did because Lin is flashy and looks more like a normal height than him(Yao). And he added that most people just cheered for him(Yao) because he represented their country.

Hopefully not and if there is somebody to blame it should to be the guy who cost the team. No excuses.
