It's funny because individually I really like the Lakers and Celtics players, well not Stephon Marbury :P ; I mean Ray Allen is a heck of a nice player, and Pierce went to my College U!....but collectively I just can't abide the big market following and all the media attention these two teams get. I guess that's what it is.
Like others have said...the Arena was filled with Lakers fans on Tuesday night; and what otherwise might have been a nice win for me turned into severe need to beat the bastards. Like the HULK I felt maddened to overwhelm all the purple and gold (head to toe jeez) that was out there.
I mean I went from indifferent to standing up waving double-fisted middle fingers at Pau Gasol for crying out loud, all because some lady next to me kept saying ... "go Kobe; go Trevor" under her breath to herself. Trevor? Trevor Ariza?
