I do hate the Lakers... Pretty much for much the same reason I hate the Cowboys, the Yankees, the Red Wings, and Manchester United.
Also, I feel like I'm supposed to support the East, but it made me sad to watch the top seed playing such that they shouldn't have made it out of the first round in the West... But it looks like they're the best we've got. Maybe I could play in the NBA. =(
(By the way, as sad as I am that the Celtics represent the best of the East, I really do like KG; on the other hand, I despise Paul Pierce.)
