^ I agree with this our crowd is very passive. I watched the Bulls vs Boston game their home crowd are nuts.


All NBA crowds are passive :dance1: :lol:

The Lakers have great fans. The passivity has always existed, but it has never hurt us.

No teams' fans understand the big moment like Lakers fans do.

you should try going to a game then, b/c laker fans get after it. In fact last week Breen was on with the guy subing for Rome and he even said Staples has become a strong homecourt advantage etc. I've been to a bunch of games this year and will be going to a round 2 game and I have always thought lakers fans are no different. no one cheers anywhere (seen games at the garden) when a team is up huge. No one cheers when a team is down huge. Fans cheer when its tight and they feel their team needs the boost. Thats what LA, NY, Chi, Memphis fans do(arenas I've been to)
Kobe's official reign of terror is about to get its jump off on.

I don’t personally want tacos, but its a way for us to congratulate our team for shutting the opponent down. The whole NBA knows of this chant and the teams probably fear getting embarrassed when they step into Staples.

Imagine you are the opponent and you are about to lose, on top of that, you have 18000+ fans taunting you that they want tacos. On the other side - how cool is it that just by your team's stellar D, they can give their fans some tacos, as if we're part of the team that's been cheering them on the whole game.

Trust me, when the game is close though, no one thinks of freakin tacos at the game, just like game 5 of the finals last year. We got tacos but didn't realize it until the game was over with that Kobe steal/dunk. But you better believe that if the Celtics are getting blown out, I'm sure everyone at Staples will yell "We want tacos" so loud that it can be heard all the way in Boston.

All the other fans have the “Beat LA” chants… This is our way of getting back at their teams, by saying we get tacos because you guys sucked extra bad tonight haha.

If it wasn’t for this chant, then all we would have left is the “____ sucks” chants and “Lets go Lakers” chants, and "M-V-P" chants.

Apparently nobody watched Orlando/Philly on Sunday. I'm convinced the crowd in Orlando lost that game for them. all but zero noise for the entirety of that blown lead.

but i gotta admit, i was kind of pissed when people booed the Jazz' 100th point. uncalled for. it's a coupon for two tacos. $1 value. If you have to money to buy playoff tickets, i don't think you need that dollar that bad.

lol, yap. Even if you're not a Knicks fan, you should never badmouth Nate. He's damn 5'7 and averages 18/4/4 off the bench.

The fans aren't really booing, when that happens we're doing it for fun. We are actually laughing when we are doing it because that's the only way the opponent "wins".

Yeah the Staples center is not exactly a hostile environment. But you know how people from LA are, we're just too laid back. And if someone's passing out free shit you bet your ass we'll be the first in line.

And some of them, you know, play pretty good defense too.

Nate Robinson is a player, everyone has likes and dislikes for certain players. No need to lash back with insults and unacceptable stuff.

Our homecrowd sucks. During that stretch when the Jazz brought down our lead to 9 points, the entire crowd was quiet. It was like a damn library or something, pretty disappointing. Our crowd needs to get more pumped up, it's playoffs!

I wish we could have bottled and brought out some of that energy from Christmas Day. I don't think I even sat down during the entire broadcast of the game :D

Always fans complaining about other fans, yet the players never complain one bit.

The Laker fans are great! We expect winning because that's what we've been given. There's nothing wrong with a crowd getting quietly tentative when things get tight. All fans do that.

If Laker fans were constantly screaming, oblivious to the state of the game (ala Sacramento) then I'd be worried.
