It's been 4 years since the Lakers have been relevant (an eternity in NBA time). And I realized while thinking about the upcoming series that my hatred for the Lakers has dimmed during the last few years. In order to prepare for the Wednesday night, I need to be reminded of all the reasons why we hate the Lakers. Here is a partial list of things that I remember:
Shaq's disrespect of David Robinson
Phil Jackson and his publicity antics
The Colorado Cassanova
Kobe's elbow on Ginobili
Their overrated, bandwagon jumping fans.
Everything is fair game: players, coaches, team officials, history, uniforms, stadium, city of residence, fans, style of play, etc. Help me relight the fires of my hatred once again.
