Being from Florida, as a kid I was a big time Magic fan. Penny was my dude and so was Shaq. After Shaq bounced on us, I was a bonafide Laker/Shaq hater for years. Never had an issue with Kobe just really disliked Shaq. How I became a fan was originally siding with Kobe during the beef and with my hatred for Shaq I always wanted to succeed in spite of his big goofy ass.
The 03 season is the first year I started to want the Lakers to win b/c of Kobe. Not truly a fan yet til Shaq left. Didn't become a real true P&G fan til like 07 when Kobe didnt get traded. From here on out after Kobe retires I'll still be a Laker fan. Hope some major changes come so success can continue.
What's your story and how you became a fan?
