I finally quit lurking and signed in because I think this site has the highest density of educated, informed and passionate Laker fans. I started enjoying the online company of my kindred Laker diehards two years ago on other sites. I have been known to support my colleague Laker_55, who has formed the single best irrefutable argument for why the Lakers are the greatest NBA franchise of all time. If that is a statement that one finds debatable (and you’ll lose), it will be an unconditional statement soon enough. We play for rings!
Because of the non-chat type format, it is doubtful I’ll run up the kind of post numbers I have in the past, on other sites, but I’m here for the reason I imagine most of you are, to discuss and celebrate the Lakers with members of YOUR Los Angeles Laker family.
Here’s my official intro homage/joint…
It started for me back in 72,
when the Purple and Gold came into my view.
Hey thanks, Golden Throat, cause you made them our own.
From those old short shorts days, has MY Laker love grown.
From 33 straight, yep, that greatest fun run,
We’ve chambered teams up, like a cocked Tommy gun
For the great ones we’ve had and rarely have lacked
For the front of the jersey, even more than the back,
I’m a diehard, a Laker, saying thank you, Doc Buss!
Hey, I saw why the Forum, was called Fabulous…
BTW, Laker Nation we are certainly blessed,
(So come back Sweet n LO! We just stole Ron Artest!)
Now, like all of our fans, I say THIS team is mine
We’re greatest hoops franchise…ah yes…of ALL time.
Yes I’ve seen quite a lot, heard those echoing cheers.
Quite a ride for a score and some 17 years.
EAT LA! GO Lakers!
