For me, it's because they are a team from LA. I have lived last 10 years in Bay Area and I hate all the teams from LA. It's a nor cal vs socal rivalry. I also hate all the NY/Boston teams - that's east coast vs west coast rivalry.
So were you rooting for the Lakers to win last year because it was east coast vs west coast?
Well, there are always exceptions. But, if Celtics didn't have Ray Allen - I wouldn't have rooted for either team. In fact, I really wasn't rooting for Celtics ether...Ray Allen is one of my favorite player, and I just wanted him to win a title. But yes, I hate the Celtics, Pats, and Sox. I was upset the day Ray Allen got traded to Celts.
But, I have been a fan of Ray Allen for 10 years, and I wasn't going to root against him regardless of what team he signs with.
