Nothing came through on TV, anyway.
Fans yelling at the speakers to raise their voices (if everyone shut up, you'd be able to hear them although it did sound like they were speaking in low voices). When Tim Lieweke of AEG was speaking, nobody cared and people started chanting "We Want Kareem". Same thing happened when Dr. Richard Lapchik spoke. When Eddie Doucet spoke, he spoke for a really long time (more than everyone else) and nobody knew or cared who he was and people were just cracking jokes, yelling at him to hurry up. I barely heard any of what the "unknown" guys were saying because everyone was so vocal and wanted to hear Kareem speak. When Magic and Worthy got up, it was better. I don't remember exactly what people were yelling out, but everyone immediately around me was very annoyed.

****ing morons. Wonder what they were doing there anyway. Probably three sheets to the wind already (****ing drunks). I hate ****ing drunks. I had to tell a couple of real a-holes at an Angel game to knock it off and they wanted to pick a fight with me.

Typical. Too much beer, too little brains, and the morons revert to animal behavior. No, that is an insult to animals.

The presentation came off great on TV. Too bad you had to experience that behavior. It just ruins it for everyone else.

Honestly, it just goes to show how stupid our fan base is. I love the Lakers but I'd say I hate the majority of our fans.

Re: Kareem Abdul-Jabbar Statue Ceremony

if there were a venn diagram showing the overlap between Lakers fans and Raiders fans you'd get a pretty decent slice of the ignoramuses you're talking about
