    I would rather sit in the middle of the Forum surrounded by 20,000 Kobe Stans than to endure another season of Donkeylips and Friends succeeding.

    The entitlement of Laker fans is a constant. I'm not happy LeBron signed there long term. But I'm here for the comedy of crashing agendas. And the eventual demise of that blue and gold PISS POOL in San Francisco.

    The Warriors dynasty will never reach the annoyance levels of Laker fans for me. One Laker title would be more annoying to me than 10 Warriors titles.

    Laker fans act like they deserve to be good just because they're in LA, and because they have a history. At least the Warriors actually built something special on their own before KD ever showed up.

    You seem to be forgetting that the Warriors and KD are why we're headed to the lottery with only 1 title to show following the most successful chapter in franchise history.

    Fuck the Lakers but fuck the Warriors harder.

    Not forgetting anything. That's just not how I feel about it.

    I actually see b
    They are going to win now more with Butler. They will add some shooters by the trade deadline and be a tough out. I dont want Embiid to ever win a thing.

    Why not? He's one of the most likeable guys in the NBA.

    I wouldn't mind if the lakers got to the finals, but I would love for the Raptors to beat them. Choosing between teh Warriors and Lakers is a Sophies choice.

    To a degree, I guess, but he's objectively not a dick, at least not to the extent of public knowledge.

    I get a different impression. I mean he is pretty real, but he is very cocky and can be disrespectful in a way towards players and even fanbases. I dunno, that's why I think it's subjective.

    I don't hate him as a person, but it's not as fun to watch guys like him and Harden who just live at the free throw line.

    Not really his fault guys have to foul him to keep him away from the basket. It's not like he's throwing his arms into guys like Harden.

    Yeah, but then he gets neutered offensively in games like last night where he doesn't get to the line. Players who don't depend on a steady diet of free throws are more appealing to me.

    he is kinda flopping a lot for a center. Albeit in a different fashion than Harden.
