When did you become a Laker fan?
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.
