I never thought of this until I was listening to several sports radio and a lot of people said every team will play their A game and would love to be the one that will cause the Lakers to be out of the playoffs. Even dog teams that has nothing to play for. Atleast ruining the Lakers season is a motivation for other teams. Do you think it is true? I know we are a storied franchise maybe of all sports but wasup with all the jealousy? I know for sure TV would love for the lakers to make it just for drama purposes but it seems like people are happier seeing Lakers fail than succeed. I kind of get it since espn covered the Lakers that doesn't deserve the coverage sometimes but it is what you get for being a storied franchise. I do get annoyed when they talk about the Yankees all the time too but I dont root for them to not make the post season.
So do you believe its true?
