Do fans truly hate the Lakers? I mean for real. It seems like every fan has poison sweating out their pores when the word Laker is mentioned. It's like people are reading this and become desperate, trying to ovoid the vomit that ruins their laptops.
I must admit, I too have become a L@ker hater. The thing is, it's because everyone else is doing it. Here is a quote from Wikipedia, " The AFL encourages the building of such rivalries, as a method of increasing publicity for the league". I think it works that way in the NBA too.
I am a true Blazer fan, but don't want to jump on the bandwagon of marketing and acting like a sheep. Yes, I detest Kobe but I think it's silly to hate a team of constantly changing players.
