Hi everyone, longtime lurker i'd say all the way back to 06 when jermaine oneal was the hot topic around here. Im a lifelong laker fan and have been through many critical errors with you all and recently decided not to go through another one without being a member. Tonight seemed to be an appropriate night to take the plunge with lonzos first SL game tomorrow. to the future

-go lakers

Longtime Laker fan...since I moved to LA in 1983. Going tonight to select seats. Been on the waitlist 5 years. So excited. Questions for y'all...if they don't have seats we love tonight, is there any advantage to selecting them anyway instead of passing and waiting until next year? Thanks in advance and looking forward to a great year...

Hello everyone! I think i have to introduce myself first. I'm from Turkey and i'm a Laker ever since i've started to watch basketball games when i was 8 (i'm 24 now). I've been in LA on November for the first time and of course i've watched LAL-Nets game while i was there. I've grew up watching Kobe and i hope i will grow old watching Ingram I'm not a native English speaker, sorry if i have any mistakes.

I joined pretty early to Lakersground May 2001 after hating ESPN coverage. When I joined there was a new energy of fans in the city with a championship franchise. Laker fans had gone through 10 years of rebuilding and Del Harris Hell and things were electric with Shaquille. Always fun to read a non biased group of hardcore hoop fans.

The forum hasn't changed all that much just more quality posters. The best part is the data and news that breaks on here from all over the league too. It's a source I always check when I'm researching the team news. Never enjoyed any of the other Laker forums they had bad moderators.

Seattle Lakers fan here! No connection to LA, and no reason to like this team! But I became fascinated watching the post-Kobe team try to find an identity last year, and I started lurking on these boards.

This year I've fallen in love with this team, as ugly as they have been to watch at times. I'm shelling out for the NBA league pass because I got tired of struggling with streaming every Lakers game. And I'll be visiting the Staples Center for the first time when the Lakers host the Mavs after the break. Flying in just to see the boys play!

So just wanted to say 'hi'. This team is going places... hoping guys like Ingram, Randall and Kuz will be there when the chips fall. I'm not sure I'm a bandwagon fan if I hop on the wagon before it picks up steam....

Hey everyone my name is Christian and I am new to LakerGround. I'm 20 and I have been a laker fan all my life. I am from the Southern California and worse born into being a laker fan. My favorite current Laker is Julius Randle, although I love all of my large adult sons in the young core. Kobe is my favorite laker/player ever. I look forward to making new friends on here!

Whuddup LG!!!
Been lurking on these boards for years like Bill Cosby.
Joined a few months ago but just started posting today. ( Don’t ask me why... my reasons are my own. So BACK Off, ok??!!! )
Sorry about that... got a legendary temper. Real unstable too, like Draymond.

Alright, Lol. Enough of that.
Been a diehard Laker fan since ‘94, when Nick the Quick was shadowboxing down the court after a bustin’ a Three in Gary Payton’s eye. Born and raised 20 years in Los Angeles but haven’t lived there for over 15 years now.
Was lucky enough to live through the 3 Peat and see the rise of all those Laker flags flying from everyone’s cars. That made summers SWEET, let me tell Ya’. My Dad even bought one! Hahahaha

Kobe’s my boy.
Always will be my favorite athlete ever, most likely. My favorite Laker Squad was the one that lost to Buckin’ Foston in 08-09. LOVED that squad, man. I wanted the Space Cadet to get a ring.
Thought they were gonna hold on to that 20 point lead in Game 4 and come back to win that series.
F*** Leon Powe! Lol.....Game 2, Right? I mean, How does a guy come off the bench and shoot more foul shots than the opposing TEAM??!!!
In the F***ing FINALS???!!
In FOURTEEN F***ING Minutes?!!!

Ehhh, we got em back in Game 7. Best feeling ever.
God, Ray Allen was such a dirtbag with that team. Remember Derek Fisher’s face during the ESPY’s when Ray was ragging on the Lakers like the chump he is? That revenge 2 years later was unreal.
0-9 from Three in Game 2!! 😁😆😂

KG was cool, though. Never could bring myself to hate him, cause I knew he was just a Mind Clone of Kobe. Still remember when we all thought he was gonna be traded here. Man, that would have been EPIC. Probably would have been the only time in sports history with multiple opponents running off the court in TEARS over the course of a season after Kobe AND Garnett pushed them too far emotionally, hahahaha! And the PRACTICES!! Could you imagine?:

BREAKING NEWS “The ENTIRE bench of the Los Angeles Lakers have formally requested a trade today, citing an inability to go through one more team scrimmage with Kobe Bryant and Kevin Garnett. We’ll bring you more as information continues to come in.”

And now we got LeBron!
Can’t wait to see the team grow over the course of this year and evolve into whatever it will be Next year, Free Agency allowing. Praying for KD, but gotta admit that Klay would be MONEY at the 2 playing off LeBron and Lonzo. (Plus he’s Laker Family.......Extended Family, but still)

Regardless, blessed to be a fan of the Purple and Gold.
Miss Dr. Buss and especially Chick Hearn ( He came to my school when I was in 4th grade and shared his life story with us 🤘)
LOVE Stu Lance even if he is a crotchety old man now.
You grow to appreciate announcers like him when you’ve spent time in Portland and had to listen to THOSE two bastards........Holy S***.

Lastly, just wanna commend the Moderators on this site, as I have more moments then I can count where I have been CRYING from laughter from some of the comments on this board! You got some Really decent members here and they add a Lot to the experience of being a Lakers Fan.

Shout outs to:

Philosophizer(?? May have misremembered that one)
Darth Los Angeles

and many more.

Even VenturaLakersFan, for sparking so much give and take throughout the years.

Hope to get to know everybody as fans going forward. PEACE
