Lakers coach Phil Jackson won his tenth championship tonight as the Lakers won their 15th championship, against the outmatched Orlando Magic. This game was a foregone conclusion. The Magic players had already given up before it even started.
I was upset to see Lakers fans going wild at the Staples Center – some of them even set a fire and according to a T.V. news report a woman took off her shirt. Talk about no class.
Why do some fans think it is cool to act like complete asses when their team wins? It is disgusting. I don’t know why the cops don’t just arrest the lot of them. It really takes away from the accomplishment of the team.
I am a lifelong Lakers fan. I am so proud of the team. They really came together this year. They deserved to win.
Kobe Bryant in particular deserves accolades as does his comrade Derek Fisher. They came into the league together and now have their fourth championship. How many would they have won if Shaquille O’Neal had not lost his mind and forced a trade?
Go Lakers and shame on you L.A. Lakers fans. Get a hold of yourselves and celebrate with at least a modicum of class. You’re making us all look bad!
Lastly – boycott the Clippers! Their owner, Donald Sterling, is an ass. I read that he does not like to rent his apartments out to Latinos. Fine. Let’s boycott his team. The Clippers suck and always will suck until Sterling sells the team to a real pro owner, which he is not.
