I'll start by saying this. I think the Lakers have the best team in the league right now. The only reason I'm not confident they'll win the finals is because they don't always play at their level IMO, and the Magic have a really good team that has been playing at a high level in this playoffs, so I think they have a chance, a smaller chance than the Lakers, but a chance nonetheless.
But I am, a Lakers hater. I just hate them, I can't really explain why. Is it their cockiness? Is it that I often find myself rooting for the underdog (and the Lakers never are). Is it that I don't like Kobe too much as a person? (IMO, he is easily in conversation for best current player in the league, and that's as much as I'll say) Is it that as a 49ers, Giants, and Warriors fan I am genetically structured to hate LA? I don't know but I do know there are other Lakers haters on this board so I ask them:
What makes YOU, a Lakers hater?
