Three-peat for Lebron, he is already going to be considered an all time great it is irrelevant to hate him at this point.

Id have to go with the Heat. If Bron wins another not much changes. The media still loves his finger nail biting ass and continues their push for him to be the games elite. Which he is and would be...so no biggie. If the Clips win...the entire balance of power in LA will change with Sterling out and Oprah in with a Chip. Gawd its like a bad fictional sports novel coming to life.

You guys know where I stand on this. 


MDA is an offensive genius. I hope he sticks to his guns and keeps doing what he does best: Run and Gun. That's the only way to coach.

I don't understand the clipper hate at all lol. They've always sucked, it's not like they've ever been a threat to the Lakers. They've never even made it to the WCF, hating them just feels so random and misguided. They're finally good and the reaction from lakers fans is to hate them. I don't know, just feels like a Dodgers fan hating the Padres or something. There are bigger fish to fry than the clippers.

The Celtics and Spurs are teams worth "hating" as a Lakers fan

I dont get the need to "hate" another team just because of the jersey, well except the Celtics because of the history.  And the Kings because  Shaq had so much fun with them and they hate us.  And the Mav because they swept us a few years back.  And of course, the Clippers because well they play in the same building and ... sniffle ... are better than us right now.  And the Pacers because Reggie Miller is a douche.  And the Blazers because their fans are so obnoxious.  And OKC because they have Durant and he should be playing for us.  And the Suns because they have all our draft picks.

The Clippers playing in the same building is not the reason why most people hate the Clippers. I got so many reasons why I hate the clippers even if Sterling not the owner though he made it quite easy to hate them, but being in the same building to me is just annoying but not enough to hate the team.

well i am not in the same catagory with the bandwagon hating on the Clippers thing cus they are good now. I never hate a team cus of jealousy because they are better than my team.  I hate the Celtics because of the rivarly and history but I respect them. I do not respect the Clippers at all. I've been hating them for 20 years. I can write a book of why i hate the clippers but im sure most of you guys dont want to read a huge essay about it.  If you want to "get" why people hate the clippers, you can pm me. I will educate you on the history of the clippers and how Clipper fans were created, how the franchise were run and how this franchise should be destroyed or change their name. That team should'nt even exist in the first place.

That's how I feel. LeBron is the best player in the world and one of the best/most dominant to ever play. It's not exactly shocking if he ends his career with at least 3 rings. Nor do I really care if he gets more. He's amazing and I have nothing against him.

 

If the Clippers win it all, we'll still have 16 championships to their 1 but the question of "What have you done for me lately" comes to mind.

It would suck for the Clippers to win, but it wouldn't be as bad as ESPN slurping LeBron for another year. Let the Clippers have their moment in the sun.

I don't see how people can hate on LeBron, best player in the game by far, plays the game the right way, ultimate team mate.  Its insane.  He is a once in a generation type player and will retire as one of the all time greats and people get mad because ESPN covers him a lot.  They should cover him a lot, he is the best player in the league.
