I never used to watch basketball and then I met someone at my job and we became close friends and we used to go to the bar/restaurant and watch the laker games. He was a big laker fan and ever since then I got into the game and thought they were excited to watch. The only basketball game I have ever been to was a Clipper game and only because it was cheap back then. It was cheap because at that time the clippers were not a good team like they are now. My favorite team became the lakers not only becuase my friend liked them but because I was born and raised in the los angeles area and I like to root for my hometown and I also liked to watch Derek Fisher. Over the years that I have been watching the lakers I started to like Kobe Bryant and I have a Shaq jersey but I do not wear it anymore. I don’t wear it anymore because he left the lakers. Even though the lakers are having a hard time this season I am so happy that they made it to the playoffs. Let’s go lakers. Time to win it for Dr. Buss.
