[QUOTE]In Response to Re: We're Sorry NBA : Why do you care where I post? And Celtics fans care about the Lakers more than anyone outside of LA. You guys have a ferocious need to stick to them. Evidenced by how many Lakers threads are started, not by Lakers fans, but by Celtics fans on these boards.

Respectfully disagree. I think two things:
1. No matter who won the title, we would care. We want the title back, the lakers are in the way, they are the champs. If SA were the champs, threads would be started about the Spurs.....that is, of course, my opinion.
2. Having lived on both coasts, I can assure you, lakers fans care more about beating the Celtics than the other way around. I personally don't care a whit who we beat in the Finals as long as we win. All the radio personalities out here say it's "better" because we beat the Celtics. Even Mychal Thompson TODAY on the radio called us the "Green Meanies" or something like that. On the LA Times, "green slime", "ceptics" are terms readily seen. Fact is lakers FANS feel entitled and don't like it when they lose. "How dare the Celtics beat us?" is the attitude. There are exceptions, like you, but for the most part, after 4 years out here, I am less than impressed with lakers fans.
Next thing you know someone will come on here and say, "we would have won if we had Matt Barnes."
