    It has been truly amazing looking at some lakers fans hate lebron. and it does exist I know several lakers "fans" that hate that lebron is on the team. The bring up kobe and say they want LJ gone. It just tells me they aint really lakers fans just kobe fans. Its kind of amazing. I tell my friend I dont want to see you in your lakers gear if Lebron brings a chip to that city. Stay consistent lol.
