So I have a theory that I wanted to bounce off some other people. These findings are completely non-scientific, contain no actual research, and are based on my own personal experience. The results are non-biased (*wink) but I feel accurately describes the fan base of the LA Lakers. I call it my Laker Theory.
30% - Bandwagon fans who barely understand basic rules of the game. Large majority are girls who consider Kobe to be "hot" despite his lazy eye and hairline that begins at the top of his elongated head.
30% - Degenerate trash reflective of the filth and crime ridden city from which the team comes from.
30% - Rabid Kobe nut-huggers who worship him as the second coming of the messiah. They begin screaming and frothing at the mouth if anyone does not agree that Kobe is the GOAT.
9% - Appears to have an understanding of the game but gives off such arrogance and pompous stench that any reasonable fan is repulsed.
1% - Well informed and respectful but at any given opportunity will easily regress to any of the above categories.
.001% - enjoyable basket ball fans with whom the rest of the league can stomach.
100% call themselves "true" Laker fans and will immediately label any non-Laker fan a "hater"
