PostPosted: Fri Feb 09, 2018 8:43 am    Post subject: The “Laker hate” is really starting to bug me!!!

Being a Lakers Fan for over 30 years, I have become accustomed to the hate and jealousy from fans of other teams, players around the league and media. Through our down years, I have expected and excepted the ridicule and the constant jokes because, with all of the success we’ve had, the haters love to kick us while we are down, I get it, but now it’s going too far!

To watch former players continue to bash us when we are clearly on the uptick. To flat out tell perspective free agents, on national TV, to not sign with us is becoming nauseating. I have never, in all of my years watching NBA basketball, seen anything like this! From Jalen Rose, to Chauncey Billiups to Reggie Miller to fat boy Charles Barkley and reporters like David Aldridge etc are basically pleading with guys to not sign with us. When has any team, that had free agent money, ever been faced with such hatred from the media? They down our young core, even though it’s proven itself to be as good or even better than any young core in the league. And unlike Philly, the Lakers accumulated their young core the right way. Not by throwing away seasons like Philly! Lebron should go to the Clippers, really? What The the he!! do the Clippers have! He should stay in Cleveland with all of these moves the Cavs have made.... really? So a young core of Rodney Hood, Clarkson, Nance and Hill, and a vet side kick of KLove is better than a young nucleus of Lonzo Ball ,Brandon Ingram, Kyle Kuzma, Julius Randle and Josh Hart with a potential sidekick of PG? FOH!!!!!

It seems like ever person that has a platform are using it to sway free agents from signing with us! Night after night, show after show, everybody putting their bid in! I usually don’t believe in Conspiracy Theories but it’s becoming painfully obvious that their is an agenda going around to do whatever it takes to make the Lakers look like an undesirable location. It’s really pissing the fu&$ off!!!!

My attitude as well. Being hated means you're relevant. I would hate it if people were indifferent.

Embrace the hate. People know we're turning the corner. Then they can all listen to Pelinka recite his own epic poem about the Lakers rising from the ashes.

Like sweet mana from Heaven...so do the tears of hate taste.


Let them flow...let them flow...


For they know we are again on the rise...


And the dawn that approaches is a harbinger of their demise.

I completely agree with your take. I'm used to the hate but yesterday was extremely annoying. However, all the hate will make it so much sweeter when we get back on top. And we will.

It’s good to be hated...means we are rising back up and there is fear of the PnG being back on top.

The haters know we are coming and Magic is itching to say “Bam! We are back (bleep)”

Their hate is the biggest proof that the Lakers are back.
They are afraid.

Exactly, if the hate is back, it means we're definitely on the up swing. People now see the Lakers as a threat. Any good sports team worth its salt has hate, so I will be very concerned if we weren't getting it especially with the 2 max slots opening up.

I wouldn't call it "an agenda"; more like a herd mentality. One person says a free agent shouldn't sign with us because we'll take too long to develop, and it becomes a theme everyone embraces.

Ultimately, I don't think it matters; players will do what they do. And honestly, I think this is one of those things where you see what you want to see. I've seen lots of speculation that George will come to LA. You probably don't notice that stuff because you are so attuned to the people who say he won't.

Wouldn't this be more fun though? If we actually do get the 2 max, the QFTOS from those eople who kept denying it would be epic!

OTOH, former players hate us because, at some point of their careers, the Lakers kicked their butts.

Barkley is a loser. Reggie Miller lost a championship to us. Jalen Rose also lost a title and got 81 dropped on his head a few years later.

Exactly. They're in a panic.

It tells me they feel there's a higher chance of us signing a max FA than I even I do.

None of these players give a rats behind what these guys say so why should it bug you? You can't expect them to say, "If I was Lebron or PG I would sign with LA." I mean come on bro...that's not going to happen. In the end, the players will sign where they think is best. Not where Charles, Billups, Reggie or Jalen thinks.

Reggie and Jalen seem like huge Laker fans to me, especially Reggie since he is an LA native. I don't know what I've missed since a lot of people seem to think they are haters. Barkley is the only hater I see in the media but he hates on everyone. That's his shtick and for whatever reason, people seem to enjoy it as long as he's not talking about their team.

Just about everyone in the media wants the Lakers to be good because Lakers = ratings and attention. If the Lakers aren't contending, it is hard to find reason to talk about them 24/7 but the media personalities have already put the season on hold to talk about 2018 Lakers free agency instead.

The fact that it was through a trade with Gilbert's Cavs that the Lakers created the lion's share of cap space needed to pursue the 2 max plan is all the more majestic.

These fools hate when we stink record-wise and keep our lottery pick and they hate us when we're near making the playoffs and they're whispers of us potentially taking the next step in FA. They're always hating. I love it.
