The 2014-2015 NBA season is a third of the way through. How have the Lakers been doing thus far? Living up to their LOSS Angeles moniker.
After starting 1-8 they’ve managed to “improve” to 8-19 and currently own the third worst record in the Western Conference. That record includes an impressive 3-10 record at home, proving that Lakers fans are the still the best fans in the league. (For those who don’t speak sarcasm, here’s a straight-talk translation: The Lakers and their fans are terrible.)
After losing to the Spurs tonight 93-80 the Lakers are now 1-8. Kobe Bryant shot an impossibly embarrassing 1-14 from the field and it continues to be a good season to be a Laker Hater. Manu Ginobili donned his hater hat in the 4th quarter as he dropped the ball through Jordan Hill’s legs for a Jeff Ayers throw down.
Nine games in and the LOSS Angeles Lakers are in full effect. I’m sure plenty of happy hating days are in our future.
If you’ve landed on this page that probably means you’re a Laker Hater. In the interest of science, choose your favorite NBA team in the poll below and we’ll see which team takes the crown as hating the Lakers the most. If you actually like the Lakers you’re in the wrong place but there’s an option for that too.
Everyone knows Hollywood stars frequent Laker games. Some can be seen often (Jack Nicholson, Leonardo DiCaprio, Ice Cube – NBA.com actually put together a “top 10” list of celeb Laker fans) but many more drop by for occasional appearances. I was planning on crudely doctoring some photos of America’s most hated individuals and putting them in Lakers gear but I don’t have to. Nearly every clown in the greater Los Angeles area has turned up at Staples Center (or the LA Forum before that) to cheer on their team. Here’s a small list of famous Laker “fans” who frequently turn up on lists of the most hated people in America.
Ok, I threw a few in there anyway just for fun (Osama Bin Laker?) but with so many legitimately awful celebrities rooting for them, it’s just one more reason to happily hate the Lakers.
