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

When did you become a Laker fan?
Ever since I was born, May 10, 1979.
Why did you become a Laker fan?
Born and raised w/ in a die-hard Laker household. Grew up during the Showtime era, greatest thing ever!
Favorite current Laker?
Kobe. Best COMPLETE b-ball PLAYER in the league. Anyone who doesn't think so, doesn't know b-ball.
Least favorite current Laker?
Slava the Slug. Used to be Sasha, but he's actually making some strides. FINALLY.
Least favorite Laker of all-time?
Probably Elden Campbell. Watching that guy play b-ball is like watching flies...well...do their thing.
Favorite all-time Laker?
Magic Johnson, hands down, for obvious reasons. James Worthy and Robert Horry probably 2nd and 3rd.
Best all-time Laker?
It's probably Kareem or Wilt really, but I think it's Magic. He did it all.
Favorite Laker coach of all-time?
Pat Riley. 2 words... Show...Time!
Least favorite coach of all-time?
Probably Del Harris. He couldn't get us over the hump in the Playoffs.
Sunderland or Chick? (not which one is/was better, which one would you rather have now and in the future)
Chick, you can't even compare the two, regardless of the criteria.
Laker that didn't get enough chances?
Chris Duhon, shoulda drafted him over Sasha, didn't get a chance. Woulda been nice.
Laker that got too many chances?
Probably Slava. Does it really take 6 seasons to find out that this guy doesn't belong in the League? Much less on the League's greatest team, for $3mill. per? What a joke.
Best moment as a Laker fan?
The 4th qtr. Playoff comeback, down 15 pts., versus Portland. One of the greatest games/things I have ever watched/witnessed. Established the new Lakers Dynasty, let everyone know this team had arrived and was for real.
Least favorite moment as a Laker fan?
Too many to think of now. Anytime we lose to Sac. Drafting Sasha Vujacic when I was hollaring for Mitch to pick Chris Duhon, can you imagine?

I guess Kobe. It used to be Shaq.
Least favorite current Laker?
Kobe, if that makes sense.
Least favorite Laker of all-time?
How can I have one? I've always liked the franchise.
Favorite all-time Laker?
Nick Van Exel is up there, but I loved Worthy, loved Kareem, and Shaq, too. But without question, it's gotta be Magic Johnson.
Best all-time Laker?
That I've seen? Magic.
Favorite Laker coach of all-time?
Riles in the 80s.

The Kobe alleyoop to Shaq against the Blazers still gives me goose bumps ... but also the Magic hook against the Celtics to win the title ... Mark Madsen dancing at a title rally?

The day Magic announced HIV.

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

I thought I responded to this several years ago, but it looks like I didn't...


When did you become a Laker fan?
Sometime in 1980

Why did you become a Laker fan?
For some reason as a child, I really liked the flashy tall guy in the green uniform from the 1979 NCAA Championship. That person got drafted by the home team, and I've been a fan ever since.

Favorite current Laker?
Hate to say it, but slim pickings on this team. Gonna have to go with Kobe, with Cook and Walton a close second.

Least favorite current Laker?
Shoota Suckadenko. Why, oh why have the Lakers hung onto this guys all these years???

Least favorite Laker of all-time?
Undecided between Chuck Nevitt, Suckadenko, and Kupcake (as a player).

Favorite all-time Laker?
Magic. Always been my favorite player, always will be. Nobody, and I mean nobody, played the position with as much flash and style as the Magic man. During the Showtime era, I stopped everything to watch a Lakers game because you couldn't guess what amazing thing was going to happen next.

Best all-time Laker?
Magic

Favorite Laker coach of all-time?
It's a toss-up between Riley and Phil.

Least favorite coach of all-time?
Any (except maybe Rudy T) between Riley and Phil

Laker that didn't get enough chances?
Clay Johnson, a 10-day contract guy in the mid-80s. Threw down two monster dunks in garbage time of a midseason game. Sure, he probably sucked, but for some reason I still remember him.

Laker that got too many chances?
Suckadenko

Best moment as a Laker fan?
Magic's skyhook over the Celtic frontline to win the championship

Least favorite moment as a Laker fan?
November 7, 1991. I was so upset, I called my mom at work just to tell her what happened.

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

How about answering the Q's in bold so that we can get to know each other.

When did you become a Laker fan?
The day Karl Malone signed with LA.

Why did you become a Laker fan?
Because Karl Malone signed with LA.

Favorite current Laker?
Kobe Bryant. Can't argue with brilliance.

Least favorite current Laker?
Lamar Odom. I know he's good...but he seems confused so often, and that rueful/amused, "Aw, I messed up again" look drives me nuts.

Least favorite Laker of all-time?
Tough question for me. I didn't really notice any team but the Jazz until Malone signed with LA. Other teams were just non-entities who passed through the Salt Palace or Delta Center. If there was anything special about them, I probably wouldn't have noticed.
I've done a lot of studying since Malone became a Laker, though, so I have some ideas now--but it's not the same as having had a most or least favorite player when that guy was actually playing.

That said....Dennis Rodman.

Favorite all-time Laker?
See above answer. Still....Got to go with Kobe. The man is fantastic.

Best all-time Laker?
From what I can gather, Jerry West.

Favorite Laker coach of all-time?
No idea, sorry.

Least favorite coach of all-time?
Phil Jackson. No arguing with his success, but he's sure a nasty individual who backstabs his players, shows no loyalty to the organization, and takes credit for that which is sheer luck: the calibre of players he's been fortunate enough to coach.

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

Laker that didn't get enough chances?
Sorry, no idea.

Laker that got too many chances?
Dennis Rodman.

Best moment as a Laker fan?
Kobe's 62 against Dallas a couple weeks ago.

Least favorite moment as a Laker fan?
The night Malone went down with his first real injury in eighteen years. I knew he wouldn't get his Ring, and the Lakers wouldn't get the four-straight.

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

When did you become a Laker fan?
1987. I was 9. My dad loved the Celtics. I rooted for the team that was against his... the Lakers.
Why did you become a Laker fan?
Magic Johnson.
Favorite current Laker?
Kobe Bryant
Least favorite current Laker?
Kwame Brown. However, I don't dislike any Laker player.
Least favorite Laker of all-time?
Gary Payton. Is a reason really needed?
Favorite all-time Laker?
Magic Johnson
Best all-time Laker?
Magic Johnson
Favorite Laker coach of all-time?
Phil Jackson
Least favorite coach of all-time?
Can't really say. I guess Dell Harris. He had one of the most talented teams in the history of the NBA and couldn't get it done.
Sunderland or Chick? (not which one is/was better, which one would you rather have now and in the future)
Chick
Laker that didn't get enough chances?
Eddie Jones. I think that he could've been good in the triangle
Laker that got too many chances?
Gary Payton. If he was taken out of some of the games in the Finals we may have won 2 instead of 1.
Best moment as a Laker fan?
Kobe's alleyoop to Shaq against the Blazers or Robery Horry's three against the Kings or Magic's 92 All-Star comeback. I can't decide.
Least favorite moment as a Laker fan?
Magic's retirement
