Your argument is flawed because we had no idea that things would shape up the way they did. Those events with Shaq, Kobe, Phil, etc. were happening in real time so to speak. But our hindsight is 20/15, 20/10 on Lebron, anybody who still wants the circus to come into town then so be it, but just don’t be the ones complaining when things go exactly as the “haters” have said. I mean it’s not like we NEED Lebron, according to most of the comments I see on here, it would just be nice to have him. If we are the best franchise in the land, why do we need to hate anybody? You only hate because you can’t reach. They hate us, they need to beat us. Fans have been chanting “Beat LA” for decades. No other franchise can say that. Even when we suck we have more headlines than any other franchise. When we’re back on top again those chants will be resurrected. I know we are the best but we will have to agree to disagree on Lebron because as Laker fans we want what is best for our franchise so we can get back to winning championships and being hated by everyone again. Some of you want instant gratification and I want to last and be on top for at least a decade or more. I believe Lebron will set us back and ruin our growth, some of you do not agree and that’s okay.
