So who said the Lakers brand is done? Only an idiot will think that. This shows you that the Lakers is STILL the best franchise in the NBA and probably in sports. Why? Because even if they suck, people still gives a crap. Love them or hate them. Lakers will always be a story. Lebron who? Asked anybody in the WORLD. When you talk about the NBA you talk about the Lakers. Kobe is more popular outside of the miopic Lebron James love fest in the U.S Now why is that you asked? Because not only is he one of the best player in the history of the NBA but he played for the Lakers. It seems to me that many do not understand the Lakers brand. I know who doesnt. Some 6'11 guy who think its too big for him so he went elsewhere. A lot of people scratch their heads wondering how in the world is a team with MDA and chances of missing the playoffs have the most national tv time. Well the people who scratch their heads about this are people who doesn't understand the Lakers brand. This is why the Clipper nation and the Clippers will NEVER take over LA. Lop city my ass.
Lakers > Any other team.
