When did you become a Laker fan?
When I 1st started playing basketball at the age of 4 or 5.
Why did you become a Laker fan?
I knew so much of their history and loved every Laker great whether team or player. Also I continue to love seeing young players develop into great or good players. (such as Kobe Bryant). I'm forever grateful to the Charlotte (now New Orleans) Hornets for accepting Divac for Bryant!
Favorite current Laker?
Kobe Bryant
Least favorite current Laker?
None! I can't hate any Laker player now, since Divac's retirement. Very likely to change if a player I dislike on any other team somehow joins the Lakers.
Least favorite Laker of all-time?
Can't decide, either Divac or Rodman. Never liked either of them.
Favorite all-time Laker?
Ervin "Magic" Johnson
Best all-time Laker
Ervin "Magic" Johnson (That was hard, too many great players)
Favorite Laker coach of all-time?
Phil Jackson & Pat Riley
Least favorite coach of all-time?
Del Harris & Kurt Rambis ( both didn't do well at all )
Sunderland or Chick? (not which one is/was better, which one would you rather have now and in the future)
Chick Hearn ( Just loved his "It's in the refrigerator, the door's closed, the lights are out, the eggs are cooling, the butter's getting hard and the jello's jiggling" phrase.)
Laker that didn't get enough chances?
Luke Walton (great passer and still hasn't gotten the chances he deserves to get better.)
Laker that got too many chances?
D. Rodman (never deserved to be a Laker)
Best moment as a Laker fan?
Too many to name but one is the time R. Horry got the lucky tip to him to drain a 3 to put out the much disliked (by me) Saccramento Kings.
Least favorite moment as a Laker fan?
Not re-signing Mark Madsen back as well as no playoffs in 04-05.

When did you become a Laker fan? Prolly in the mid 80's when I was in high school.

Why did you become a Laker fan? I'm a homer. :) Plus listening to Chick Hearn will make you a BBall fan (just as Vin Scully made me a Dodger fan)

Favorite current Laker?I'd have to see the roster. Who the hell are these guys?!

Least favorite current Laker?Is Slava still on the team? Him.

Least favorite Laker of all-time? Just one? LOL Samaki Walker, Divac, Rice, Kupchak, that whatshisname that used to back up Magic near the end, came from Marquette...

Favorite all-time Laker?Cooper, Worthy, Horry, Magic...too many.

Best all-time LakerDefine best :) Prolly have to say Magic.

Favorite Laker coach of all-time? Pat Riley. Phil is cool, too.

Least favorite coach of all-time? Randy Pfund (watching people scratching their heads lol )

Sunderland or Chick? Chick forever. I miss his voice terribly. :( Sunderland did a good job, I thought.

Laker that didn't get enough chances?Rodman.

Laker that got too many chances? SLAVA. He is now and has always been horrible.

Best moment as a Laker fan? Too many. Horry's shot, Fisher's shot, the parades.....

Least favorite moment as a Laker fan? Prolly after Magic announced he had HIV. We played a road game (I think it was in Phoenix) soon afterwards, and while we were in shock, the Suns blew us out while their fans cheered lustily. Not really their fault...but I've never forgiven them for it.

Hello, by the way.

1971 at the age of 9...during the incredible 33 consecutive wins season.
Why did you become a Laker fan?
Basketball was my favorite sport and I had just moved to Southern California.
Favorite current Laker?
Kobe Bryant...despite the bad press...he is the best small forward in the game today.
Least favorite current Laker?
Slava...for his size, he should be getting more boards and playing better defense...he just wants to shoot!
Least favorite Laker of all-time?
I would have to say Samaki Walker or Glenn Rice. Walker just took up space and Rice let his wife do the talking for him.
Favorite all-time Laker?
Connie Hawkins...THE HAWK!
Best all-time Laker?
Magic...no question!
Favorite Laker coach of all-time?
Pat Riley.

Randy Pfund.
Laker that didn't get enough chances?
Brian Winters. There were no negative issues with Winters. All "older" Lakers fans will remember that he was the "purest" shooter in the game at that time...and, after being drafted by LA and spending a short time here, he went on to be an All-Star guard with the Bucks. He was part of the trade that brought Kareem to LA.
Laker that got too many chances?
J.R. Rider.
Best moment as a Laker fan?
A few years back...beating the Blazers by making an incredible 4th quarter comback...ending in Kobe's alleyoop to Shaq...that brought the house down!
Least favorite moment as a Laker fan?
When Kermit Washington punched Rudy T...almost ending his life. When he returned from the injury, he was never the same.
