    Is it wrong to be happy that the Lakers are struggling?

    I hate the preponderance of Lakers threads as much as the next guy and I'm loathe to ever create a hate or bait thread, but I just can't help but feel vindicated, satisfied and just downright giddy that the Lakers are struggling. I've never ever had a vendetta against any non-rival team so this is strange for me. But the Magic suck and I need something to root for (or against) and this has sustained me.

    Is this wrong? (Nothing personal Lakers fans)
    Magic. Red Sox. Colts. Knights.

    Nope! It makes perfect sense. Especially on this site! Their fans deserve this. They earned it!!

    That said there are some decent Laker fans. This post goes out to the banner pointers and LeBron in 2014ers.

    Haha, Lakers fans have been a thorn in EVERYONE'S side the past decade. There's areas that simply don't know how to win and Lakers fans are pretty much the definition of that.

    I'm actually disappointed because LAL has been such a storied franchise and the playoffs won't be as entertaining. C'mon, a LAL vs Heat matchup would break records solely because LBJ and Kobe are still the top two stars.

    not at all. For the same reason why we were all doing the same to the knicks when Isiah was mad at the wheel of that franchise.

    It's normal and understandable. Teams that are successful for long periods of time are often hated, so it comes with the deal. Nobody has dominated the modern NBA like the Lakers. Since 1980 the Lakers have 16 conference titles and 10 championships.

    Yankees, Lakers, Man U, Celtics, etc. all receive a lot of hate too.

    I'm not trying to be arrogant, because I think our title window has closed for a couple years (unless Dwight re-ups), but this is often how sports works. Success often leads to hate, and I'm certainly no different. I hate Man U lol

    I understand where you're coming from but at the same time, it's hard to not hate a team when their star player brags about winning the championship before they played a game.

    Of course not...........Lakers are always a team contending and are that team you HATE if your not a fan of theirs because they win so much. Only problem is you wont be able to enjoy it long cause the Lakers are never down long so enjoy and bask in this as long as you can lol

    Im sure they will make a trade and get Lebron and Bosh for Gasol somehow lmao
