Re: All New Posters, post here first-- Laker survey

Hey guys. This seemed like fun, so I thought I'd give it a try...


When did you become a Laker fan?
I can't really remember a time when I wasn't
Why did you become a Laker fan?
Because they were my families team. I still remember my mom, my brother, and I driving out to the Forum.
Favorite current Laker?
I'd have to say Trevor Ariza. He does all the little things that help them win games. Plus he's from UCLA. Josh Powell and his tattoos are in the running, as well.
Least favorite current Laker?
Sasha Vujacic. I don't know why, he just pisses me off.
Least favorite Laker of all-time?
Doug Christie. **** that guy.
Favorite all-time Laker?
There have been so many great players to wear the purple and gold over the years... Sealy, Perkins, Rice, Rider, Jones, Campbell, Divac, Shaq... To say one is my favorite over all the others is hard. I'd have to say it's between Cedric Ceballos, and Nick Van Exel. Ced could do anything he wanted to. Score, rebound, defend. I still consider it a crime he was never given an All-Star nod. And Nick? What's there to be said about the man that hasn't been said already? He truly was one of the best point guards in the game at the time, and his style was genuinely unique. Had he been on the team longer, it would've been Mr. Rider.
Best all-time Laker?
Can't deny Mr. West.
Favorite Laker coach of all-time?
How can it not be Phil?
Least favorite coach of all-time?
A toss up between Del and Kurt. Del put shackles on the team's most talented players, and Kurt let the inmates run the asylum.
Laker that didn't get enough chances?
My immediate reaction here is to say Nick. Yeah, he was an All-Star with the Lakers, but I can't help but feel like had he been with the team when Phil took over the coaching reigns, he could have been a huge part of those championship runs. J.R. comes to mind as well. I love J.R., and while he continued to screw up in L.A., when he did play and he was focused, he was an excellent compliment to Kobe and Shaq.
Laker that got too many chances?
Lamar Odom. Don't get me wrong, Lamar is one of my favorite players in the game today, and yeah, the Lakers avoided trading him away for guys like Jermaine and Kidd, but I still feel like if they traded him for a more physically intense player, the Lakers would all but ensure a championship.
Best moment as a Laker fan?
The beginning of a new era: Kobe's alley oop to Shaq.
Least favorite moment as a Laker fan?
Three moments:
1) When Ced broke his leg, and was subsequently unceremoniously traded.
2) Nick Van Exel being run out of town by a lame duck coach.
3) Being swept by the Spurs in 1999.

October of 1992, I was 12.
Why did you become a Laker fan?
Magic was making his FIRST comeback from HIV and everyone was making a big deal about it. I watched the preseason games he played in and soon I began to watch games even after he re-retired. I went to my local library and got a couple of Laker history books and read up on Mikan, Baylor, West, Wilt, Kareem and Magic. Soon I became hooked to Vlade, Sedale and the rest of the Lakers.
Favorite current Laker?
Robert Horry. When he first got here he could run, block shots and dunk. Now I just love watching him shoot his 3 pointers that seem to take minutes to reach the rim. He never stops moving on offense either, always cutting. Whatever the Lakers need he brings.
Least favorite current Laker?
Mark Madsen. Stop missing lay-ups and try dunking.
Least favorite Laker of all-time?
Greg Foster. I hated Kupchak for bringing throat slash in. That would be like signing Pippen after his contract is up.
Favorite all-time Laker?
Nick Van Exel. I just liked the passion he showed on the court. His lower the roof gestures on the road, his uppercuts after nailing a 3 at home. I really wish Kobe would be more cocky and start doing stuff like this. Nick was a fearless player.
Best all-time Laker?
Has to be Jerry West for his contributions as player, coach and GM.
Favorite Laker coach of all-time?
Phil. I love how smug he is. It's nice having a coach that can talk trash to other teams.
Least favorite coach of all-time?
Del Harris. Almost ruined the Lakers. If Phil didn't come along Shaq would probably would of opted out of his contract after 2000.
Sunderland or Chick? (not which one is/was better, which one would you rather have now and in the future)
Chick, no question about it.
Laker that didn't get enough chances?
Nick and JR Rider.
Laker that got too many chances?
Foster and Rodman.
Best moment as a Laker fan?
Kobe's alleyoop to Shaq against the Blazers. That's when it sunk in that the Lakers will win a title.
Least favorite moment as a Laker fan?
Day Nick was traded for Lue and Battie.
Hate Kobe since 2001
Hate T-mac since 2003
Hate James since 2006

Penny and Vince Fan

First with Magic, then since Gasol is in the team.
Why did you become a Laker fan?

Re: All New Posters, post here first-- Laker survey

When did you become a Laker fan?
I always remember cheering for the Lakers as a kid with my family, but I really didn't start grasping basketball til the 1993 season, 10 years old. Nick Van Exel is what got me hooked to basketball.

Why did you become a Laker fan?
I guess I was a Laker fan by default being born and raised in LA, but I didn't start being a die hard til after the Magic era. Nick Van Exel and Eddie Jones are some of my best 90s NBA moments.

Favorite current Laker?
Tough to choose, so many too pick from but I'll say Pau Gasol. Best BBall IQ on the team IMO, beautiful post game, can finish with both hands, was the piece that put us over the top, and is a blessing sent from Spain.

Least favorite current Laker?
Sasha. Has no use on the offensive side of the ball. He's paid to hit a 3 and play D which he doesn't do well. Fouls like crazy but always claims he doesnt.

Least favorite Laker of all-time?
Kwame Brown. One of the clumsiest players ever in the league, was not taught the game well and never wanted to learn it. I haven't kept up with him in Detroit, but the time he spent here was pathetic.

Favorite all-time Laker?
Nick Van Exel. Nick was just one of the smoothest players I've ever seen. His "swag" wasn't forced and his all around skills on the court were awesome. The way the older heads on this site view Magic, or the way the younger posters view Kobe is the way that I viewed Van Exel growing up. No way does he come close to those 2 all time, but he did things that I've never seen done before and is what got me hooked to bball and the Lakers.

Best all-time Laker?
Magic and Jerry West. Kobe has a chance to move up this list with 4-6 more years of basketball left in his career.

Favorite Laker coach of all-time?
Phil. How often do you ever see Phil lose his cool? There's a reason why he has 11 rings, the man is simply the best at what he does and it's been proven year after year after year.

Least favorite coach of all-time?
Del Harris. This guy had a loaded squad and kept on getting swept in the playoffs all the time. I mean seriously those squads he had were loaded!! Never had another NBA head coaching gig after his flop with the Lakers.

Sunderland or Chick? (not which one is/was better, which one would you rather have now and in the future)
LOL @ this question

Laker that didn't get enough chances?
Caron Butler

Laker that got too many chances?
Devean George

Best moment as a Laker fan?
Game 4 2000 NBA Finals. It clinched the LA long title drought and was Kobe's coming out party to superstar level. He was an all star before that. But the way he came out the end of that game and took over was really amazing to see coming from a young ball player. He showed the Superstar flash that night

Least favorite moment as a Laker fan?
I'll say Game 5 of the 2003 Semi Finals against the Spurs. That year should've been ours to 4peat and separate the Kobe/Shaq Dynasty from all others. I remember the Lakers stormed back from being down 0-2 to tie it up 2-2 and were trailing by 17 or something in game 5. They make a miraculous comeback and setup Horry for the game winning 3. He had it right there in his sights and it rimmed out. Then game 6 they absolutely demolished us at home. Seeing Fish/Kobe tear up was just so
