Basketball fans have seen enough of the Lakers. When was the last time they sucked?
You know they're going to be good. They'll always attract talent in this sports era of frequent free agent moves. So wouldn't you rather they be enjoyable to watch? I understand if you are a fan of a chief rival of theirs, but the Knicks-Lakers rivalry died decades ago.
Nash and Gasol are two of my favorite players, as is Grant Hill (who might sign with them). Hard to hate Kobe, he's just too good.
