For the most part, one could safely assume that we here at PTR do not like the Lakers. To this guy, the thought of a Lakers victory is like screeching on a chalkboard.
Besides their winning tradition, there's a wide variety of fun and exciting rasons to not like the Lakers. Maybe you're a Celtics fan. Maybe they've hit the big shot to beat your team. How about their fans? Maybe you just cannot, for the life of you, understand why the media loves them unconditionally. The Lakers are always the team to beat, whether they're the defending Champs, or not. They're probably the most popular team in the NBA, if not all of sports. To their credit, there is a very rich history that includes the second most Championship banners in the history of the NBA, and plenty of retired numbers hanging on top of the Staples Center that earned those banners. Not all of the Lakers are bad. Some of the old timers I even like! But these newbies...nope. So, once again, I ask you all, who is your most despised Laker? And why?
