One of our favorite tweeters, Kevin Ding (O.C. Register), wrote this morning that according to an S.I. poll conducted during December, 69% of NBA players polled picked the Lakers to celebrate a third consecutive title in June.

We’re not gonna’ say the guys who play the game know best… but the guys who play the game know best.

Check out the full scoop here.

      Maybe they are not real Laker fans or they just hit the panic buttonafter they saw them lose a few. But either way they shouldnt be tools.
