He brings up a point I've always hated and that's how people outside of LA view the lakers fanbase. That Laker fans are all stars an glamorous and that they don't care about the game an only care about being seen. You know when people talk Lakers they always say "they have the celebrity and people who want to be seen" crowd while the clippers have the "blue-collar, lunch pale crowd" I've heard that from tv broadcasters when taking about the "rivalry" between Lakers clippers. finally someone in the media witting it like it is
