I loved rooting against the Lakers when I was a kid–during the Showtime Era I pulled for the Celtics–but I don’t mind them these days. I’m not a fan but I don’t hate them at all. I like rooting for Kobe. He’s a dick but that’s okay. Plus, I’m continually impressed that the Lakers win and win some more and are still able to bring in major talent. Like say, Dwight Howard. They are the anti-Knicks.
I was scrolling through my Twitter feed this morning and saw this from Howard Bryant: “There are the Yankees and there are the Lakers. And there is everyone else…”
Guess that explains it.
