So... I'll start with my situation. I already wrote about it few years ago, but I will tell my story again.

Back in 2002 when we had a rivalry with Sacramento, everyone here in Serbia was crazy about Kings because of Peja and Vlade. I played pickup games on the daily basis and I was literally ONLY guy, that root for a Lakers. There was around 30 guys that plays and other 30 people around court, that watch/take care of kids etc. Everyone was like: "You're peeping Kobe'n'Shaq are done for good, a new Kings era beginning NOW!!! And I would lie, if I would tell you that I wasn't concern. Kings was best team back there in 2002. But we have Kobe and Shaq.
And crazy thing that I did...

When we finally winish them, I was walking to the court and everyone's watching me appriaching. I bring both my arms sky high and show my two middle fingers to all of them, walking strait to the court. There was a lot of full grown men (i was 19 yo) and I was risking serious beating... But my heart was full and I was peeping untouchable at the moment.

And everyone just stayed silent... Some of them even congradulate me, lol. That was the most crazy thing I did.

What's yours?!

I wore my Magic Johnson jersey for several days after he announced that he was HIV positive. I can't say this was a "crazy" thing to do but I live in Portland and I did get jeered and teased quite a bit over this, and not in a nice way.

Been changing the 15 TVs at my work to Lakers pre season and summer league while everyone bombards me with negative comments like, “The Lakers Suck” “No One Cares About Summer League” “It’s Just Pre-Season” “I Wouldn’t Waste My Money To See Them” “Josh Hart Is Trash” etc... Been doing that to them since the Randle/Clarkson Summer League. Way better than the Padres and Aztecs in my opinion.

Wore a Bryant jersey shirt with Laker hat to a Diamondbacks game. I had a high school group perform the star spangled banner, it went on jumbo tron, camera guy being funny picked up on the Bryant lettering, to which you end up hearing loud boo’s during the performance. I wore it because the majority of D-Back fans I know have earned the nickname D-Bags and the irrational hate of the Lakers earns them one of these types of moments.

Joining and staying on this board, tbh.

Watching almost every game of the Byron Scott era would be second.

Only bad thing Kobe did was cheat on his wife. The rest is BS.

The good measure to prove you’re Laker fandom is still being a hardcore fan after the Lakers championship run ended in 2004 after losing to the Pistons and the Organization trading away the most dominant big the league has ever seen...

Any fan that still stuck with the team after that is a real Laker for life.

A Laker fan is never alone at Staples. You were with 18996 of your closest friends.

Have watched about 95-98% of the games since Kobe tore his achilles.

That’s real love.
