NBA Regular Season 2012-2013, Game 5:
Los Angeles Lakers (1-3) @ Utah Jazz (1-3)
Is there any other team out there in the league that gets us to act our worst more than the Lakers? Yes, the Spurs make our team look like fools; but I think playing the Lakers is like the full moon to werewolves for us . . . it brings out an inherent ugliness to the game, from the stands on down. We hate the Lakers. And apparently, we also hate it when people show up to a Jazz home game rooting for the Lakers. Please, let's not get into any fights in person tonight. This game is too closely placed to a pretty emotionally charged night where individuals became upset because, mainly, the guys they root for were unable to adjust to the changing dynamics of the race they were in.
I'm not going into any specifics here, but hey, at the end of the day we're all fans no matter what colors we represent on the outside.
And if we're the best fans in the NBA, and I like to think we are, that means we can root for our team with all of our hearts without having to bring other people down for who they root for. (After all, that's what I hear they do in @Texas) (That's like such an exclusive joke . . . ) (Insiders only . . . )
Anyway, no Steve Nash means the ball will be in Kobe Bryant 's deadly hands more. So. Hooray for us?
Btw, the game threads are pretty boring are bare. If you have some suggestions please drop 'em in the comments below.
