i know i started the thread, and i could edti, but i felt this deserved another post..
I was always a Laker fan, but a casual one, id watch a playoff games, talk basketball history.. then came the last year of dominance with the fab4 [malonepaytonkobeshaq] the playoffs that year is when i slowly became infatuated. They lost, the lakers traded shaq and my first full season as a full supporter, the Lakers were horrible yet i kept by them, always having hope [if stupid timthomas didnt make that shot, no doubt we would of been in the finals that year!!] and now to be here, im excited for a great playoff run!!!
I can't seem to get this grin off my face... but the real season starts this weekend...and considering how tough the West will be I'm trying to minimize the celebration as much as possible...I do think this is a testament to their hard work and determination through adversity.
So lets celebrate our Lakers on top for tonight
BUT start getting ready for the real test that awaits.
