When did you become a Laker fan?
Back in the 1990/91 season. I was 12 years old and here in Australia (our) ABC use to show a game a week (replayed). The first half were just highlights and then they would play the 3rd and 4th quarters. All up the game would go for about an hour but for me (having played a seson or 2 in jnr league) watching the best of the best just once every friday night was golden.
Why did you become a Laker fan?
Watching those replays every friday night alot of players caught my eye. Mike, Larry, Isiah, Reggie...there was so many. But in my eyes back in the day, and being a point guard, no one did it better than Magic Johnson. The first game I seen him play I knew straight away that this guy was special.
Favorite current Laker?
Kobe Bryant...no doubt about it. The guy has stepped it up so much when I thought he could'nt get better than he already was. He really has learned how to make his team excel and feed off of his leadership and energy. He's become a true leader and a legend. And I'm really sick of the haters, critics and negativity in the media. Seems like he's the player you either love or hate...no in between.
Least favorite Laker of all-time?
Rick Fox, only because he came from Boston. It's nothing personal!
Favorite all-time Laker?
Im gonna go with the Big Diesel, Shaquille O'Neal. He really carried L.A. in that final game against Indiana, the first Championship I had the pleasure of seeing the Lakers win. His efforts in that game were unbeleivable, and he really deserved that. (at this point i had ESPN, and was lucky enough to finally be watching the games live!)
Best all-time Laker?
Have to go with Magic Johnson. He's the reason I'm a fan. The guy did it all...boards, assists, points, steals...he was unbeleivable. Watching him get a triple double after awhile wasn't suprising, it just became normal. Big fan of his passing ability...I think he even had a TD in that final game in 91 against the Bulls. I could be wrong.
Favorite Laker coach of all-time?
Del Harris....nah, jk! The Zen-Master Phil Jackson, how could I not go with Phil. He's done so much for the Laker organization. When he left for a season I was shattered. When he came back It was awesome. Aside from all that, he's got 9 rings, 1 short of tieing the all time record with Red (Boston!) Aurbach.
Least favorite coach of all-time?
Del Harris. No need to go on...
Sunderland or Chick? (not which one is/was better, which one would you rather have now and in the future)
I don't know, we're talking about commentary here? I grew up on Marv Albert and Mike Fratello. They were always commentating the games aired here back in the day, and still sometimes I get games with Marv.
Laker that didn't get enough chances?
Hard to say...I know Karl Malone will always be linked to the Jazz, but Im gonna say Karl. I really wanted to see him win a Championship with us. He got injured for awhile, edging towards the end of his career...to me it was a shame (even though the Jazz knocked us out in 98).
Laker that got too many chances?
Glen Rice. I always liked him but I just don't think he ever fit in as a Laker, and he was too prone to injuries.
Best moment as a Laker fan?
My favorite moment as a Laker fan had nothing to do with a Laker game. It was the 1992 All-Star game, just after Magic had retired but made an amazing appearance in Orlando. He stole the show, all eyes were on Magic. Dropping 3's from a meter out, isolations with Mike and Isiah (all in good fun and friendly competition)...an unforgettable game.
Least favorite moment as a Laker fan?
I have 3...(Appologies in advance!)
1) Magic having to retire for obvious reasons, I'll never forget that, it shattered me for a long time.
2) Losing to Detroit with the team we had (Shaq, Kobe, Karl, Gary), should have had that locked. Lakers just were'nt playing as one, very little chemistry in that series...too many cheifs and not enough Indians, and there was alot of B.S. off the court and in the media.
3) Shaquille leaving L.A. over some stupid s*** that was'nt handled the best way it could have been in my opinion. I don't directly blame anyone for that, but the Lakers off court was being turned into a soap opera...and I can't stand shows like that.

When did you become a Laker fan?
Ever since my buddy invited me over his house to play games. He was using the internet and there was an article about Magic Johnson; "The man who can fly in the air". What how is that possible? Read on.

Why did you become a Laker fan?
The good o'l folks play in the city of Los Angeles and I always try to root for the home team. I even root for the Dodgers and they haven't won anything since a long long time! :angel:

Favorite current Laker?
This is like asking which car I want to drive into a wall just for the heck of it? I'll drive anything with Smash Parker, Lamar Odumb, and KwameI Frown stapled onto the front bumper of my vehicle. With that saying I say I have to like Kobe. :curse: What's wrong with you kwame?

Least favorite current Laker?
Phil Jackson. Oops...you mean player right? I have to say Lamar Odumb. Gosh Lamar, with your talent i could be easily be making some million dollars and I'll probably end up at the Hall of Fame! But you're too dumb for anything so.... :eek8:

Least favorite Laker of all-time?
Elgin Baylor. LoL KOBE owns him.

Favorite all-time Laker?
Magic. The guy is a gazillionaire. :cheers:

Snack. C'mon guys, aside from gaining 30 plus pounds every season, the guy is just a cool doofus. Too funny.

Favorite Laker coach of all-time?
I have to say Pat Riley. I'm all for leaders with aggressive attitudes.

Least favorite coach of all-time?
Rudy T. What a waste of a coach.....I mean for the Lakers.

Sunderland or Chick?
Which a name like Chick, you tend to think that this person is a hot sexy chick just waiting for me to come over to say hi. With that saying, he's not so hey! :twave: What the heck was I smoking? Chick Hern.

Laker that didn't get enough chances?
That Pargo kid. What's amazing is that this kid had talent but we decided to cut him and keep Rush. Then we were trying to trade for him back because the kid shown promise.
DO IT MITCH!

Laker that got too many chances?
Lamar I'mDUMB. Trade him with Mihm for the Bulls' 2nd and 16th picks along with the stud named Gordon.

Best moment as a Laker fan?
Kobe's sexy shot against the Suns at game 4 of the Suns/Lakers 2006 playoff series. Too bad we lost or I bet we would have hoisted the damn trophy.

Least favorite moment as a Laker fan?
Anytime I had to watch Gary Payton play for the Lakers in the 2004 nba campaign. What? We had to pay TONS of money to watch this guy? Not really but, goodness he won a ring. Congratulations. :whatever:

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.

Why did you become a Laker fan?
I was born and raised in the LA area, loved basketball as a kid, then I saw an amazing team with amazing players winning championships and they happened to be my local team…no brainer
Favorite current Laker?
Kobe is the default answer but I really like how Walton plays. I think he is one of the smartest players in the NBA and seems to practice hard in the off-season on his deficiencies. He plays hard and you will barley ever see him do a knuckle-head play.
Least favorite current Laker?
Smush, but he is gone.hmmmm I guess Cook would be my LEAST FAVORITE but im ok with him
Least favorite Laker of all-time?
Greg Foster…Now here is a guy who I freaking hated getting. I hated him and Utah and hated even more as a Laker. I was lucky enough to tell him that to his face when I snuck behind the bench in garbage time. He didn’t like that and we got into a little shouting match. Thin skinned *****.
