I've recently heard that Laker fans will go mad if the Miami Heat win the championship & it made me ask the question, why? There is no existing rivalry other than the media created "Kobe vs. LeBron," which makes no sense. I understand being a fan of a player, but team allegiance should trump that. If the Heat win, that won't change the fact that the Lakers were swept in the second round. There are far more pressing issues than Lebron getting his first ring in Lakerland so why is that seen as an issue to some?
