On Wednesday evening, a Poll question was asked by David Brickley and Kevin Figgers on the #1 Lakers radio show, “Voice of the Nation”.

Listeners were asked “Were you specifically rooting for LeBron and the Heat to lose the NBA Finals?”

By the end of the two hour show, which included guest appearances by Fox Sports Radio’s Matt “Money” Smith, and NBA Hall of Famer Rick Barry, 90% of Laker fans said they were specifically rooting against LeBron and the Miami Heat.

That number seems somewhat high considering the Miami Heat’s opponent the Dallas Mavericks just swept the Lakers in the 2nd round.

Conclusion? LeBron James and the Miami Heat are hated nationwide not just in Cleveland.

    of course we want to lose Lebron because he’s so boastful, he think he’s the king of the NBA and the best player today, and now what he choke again in the playoffs.

    whose gonna win 1,2,3,4,5,6 but 7 championships now? haha… maybe you can win in your dreams, haha

  • Francis Bawasanta

    Of course I was. Since they celebrated their incredible 7 championship run… ridiculous behavior. I hope he and the heat never taste a ring, EVER! They showed a lack of respect to the game. I hope the new CBA forces that team to disband. 

  • J. Jackson

    any team except lebron’s!

  • Evilmrchicken

    LeBron just thinks it’s way easy to win a championship and he finally realizes that it takes more than 3 players. Oh, and good luck on 7 championships! LMAO

    People that voted no are not real lakers fans.

    • Joshua Herrington

      I voted no.  I really hated The Finals this year  because of an absentee Lakers team so I didn’t really root for anyone. I did predict the Mavs to win it in 6, and if you call that rooting for LeBron to lose, then I should’ve voted yes. By the way, I’m a real Lakers fan. I just don’t hate LeBron. I’m too busy being happy for what we have as the Lakers to worry about rooting against LeBron.
