Spoiled for sure. I don't want it to even out over the next several years however.
It's not so much that he's blaming Kobe and letting Shaq off the hook. Shaq isn't here, and hasn't been for 3 years. They both were to blame for the fractionalization of the team, but right now he's just not part of the equation any more.Quote:

there's a lot of loathing going around in here.
Why do you guys hate the Lakers? Oh yeah...I know why...cause they win Championships. Almost everyone on this website hates winners. Thats why the Kings are so loved. Cause they are loosers.
Me personally, I used to like the Lakers in the 80s with Magic and Kareem. As a Knick fan, the Lakers were my last line of defense every year against the teams I really hated--Boston, Philadelphia and Detroit. Even the Bulls that last time in the Finals for them. Then you guys went out and collected everybody I can't stand, Phil Jackson to be the coach, Shaq, Rodman, etc. Kobe turned out to be an unlikable, arrogant punk. All you were missing was Danny Ainge and Horace Grant to be my all time most hated team.
So someday I probably won't hate the Lakers again, but who knows? As a Knick fan we have our own problems.
The most selfish player hits a new low. In case no one heard me three years ago, Kobe is a piece of dung and cares about one thing in the world- Kobe. That is why no one will play with the Lakers.
