A Little Something For Laker Haters Worldwide
After games 2,4, and 5 of the NBA finals my phone rang off the hook. Countless people chimed in to give me their opinion on the downfall of the "Fakers". I didn't take the phone calls personal. I understand there is a legion of fans that hope, wish, and pray for the Lakers to lose. It's hard for them to wrap their hands around the concept of destiny and prophecy. I patiently listened to the fans and their harsh criticism with a sympathetic ear. After game 7 the silence was deafening. Suddenly no one had 2 kind words to say to me. All the smack talkers disappeared. It was as if the inevitable victory broke the spirit of Laker haters like Bo Jackson breaking a bat over his knee. To be fair the championship was never in question. The demise of Laker Nation was GREATLY exaggerated. The Celtics are a storied franchise with multiple championships in the past (only 2 in the last 25 years) but the leprechauns are old and they don't have Kobe Bean Bryant. When you have the best player on the planet good things will happen. The lord of basketball simply imposed his will on Boston and in typical fashion they wilted. The outcome was never in doubt. Take nothing from the Celtics, they played their hearts out and made the series much closer than it ever should have been. Give them credit for that, just give the Lakers more for being all they could be. I feel sorry for for Celtic fans because they want something they simply can't have, Kobe's legacy and championship. I am in the process of doing some research to see if there are some therapy groups out there to help with the depression. The first step to recovery is admitting the truth. I can help with this. Laker haters say it with me out loud, THE LOS ANGELES LAKERS ARE WORLD CHAMPIONS. One more time with feeling, THE LOS ANGELES LAKERS ARE WORLD CHAMPIONS. The first step is always the hardest but I know you can do it. Feel free to call me, I'm here all week.
