So I'm a Lakers fan. I have been since the early 90's when they were rebuilding after the showtime era. I was a super fan in the days of Nick Van Exel, Eddie Jones, George Lynch, Elden Campbell, Anthony Peeler, Vlade Divac, etc. etc. I grew up outside of Los Angeles and have fond memories of going to the Great Western Forum with my dad and brother to watch the games. Now that I have that off my chest, let me proceed...

They aren't doing too hot right now. Down 2-0 to the Dallas Mavericks in the second round of the playoffs. Crap. In situations like these I try to look for the good. In this case, the funny. This comedian does a great job of being a Lakers fan in the most awkward of ways. He has another video that is a classic about the U.S. and Canadian border. Check it out here.

I know most people don't care for the Lakers... or maybe basketball in general, but I do. I've been a fan for quite sometime now. I can see why people don't like them (they win all the time and have one of the most cocky players of all time leading the team) but I respect the organization and the legacy they have going on there. Let's hope they can dig themselves out of this hole and defend their championship.
