I'm sure after reading that headline the first question was "WHOA!? Why did a Lakers website post about hating Lakers fans?" Well, first off.. GOTCHA! Second, I just finished reading one of my favorite LakersNation.com writer's Andrew Ungvari's follow up to the article that originally ignited this discussion "An Open Letter to Kobe". Coming from a Lakers fan that has been following since 1991; he was right on the money, without a doubt. Its not a secret that Kobe is slowly becoming a normal person and I know a lot of Lakers fans felt that this was some type of blasphemy towards The Black Mamba.
To sum it all up, a Lakers writer posted an "anti-Kobe" post on a Lakers fan website. Now to a person like me, its completely reasonable as the content of the post related perfectly to the theme of the website and thats the Los Angeles Lakers. But I'm a reasonable person and it took most of my life to accept opinions and understanding from complete strangers and situations. Not a lot of people feel that way or have the same thought process.
When I'm not drinking and/or/when living vicariously through the Lakers, during the darkened evenings I get up on a stage and repeat words, phrases, stories and try my hardest to make it as funny as I possibly can (I've been performing stand-up comedy for almost 7 years). Now, there is nothing in the world... that is more subjective than, comedy. People will be offended, they will laugh, they will cry, they will hate it, they will say it sucked, they will be angry, etc. But the number one rule about comedy is that its subjective.
You dont have to agree with it and if you dont, thats fine by me. It's what I believe in and you're entitled to your own opinion. Not a lot of people can say that. Majority of the human race feels that they have an opinion which you should believe in and if you dont like it or they dont agree with what you're saying; you're a fucking asshole. In Drew's case, he felt the wrath of people that dont have a thinking process like me. They just read and immediately jump the gun without thinking about it.
After reading Drew's follow up "Lakers Fans, Can't We All Just Get Along" and more specifically the comment section, it appears that the same human race that I mentioned in my last paragraph believes that he is continuously adding more fuel to the burning of The Black Mamba and he's "not a real Lakers fan." Now, I tried being as professional as I possibly can in this post, but now I must unleash what I do on stage and on this website...
To all those people commenting and tweeting Drew, insulting him and telling him how ignorant his post was or how he lacks some type of loyalty... Shut, the fuck up. You are sitting behind a keyboard, probably inside of a house that belongs to your mother's boyfriend or whoever is fucking her, or at Starbucks, chastising a person that is doing something not only more artistically but more productive than you will ever be. A productive day for you consists of going to the liquor store for blunt wraps, while walking like you just shit your pants. You're insecure about yourself and you want to feel like you know it all and know everything and you do that by insulting someone that is trying to please you, the audience.
Guess what kids, you dont know shit. You either read and like what you read or you move on. By all means though, there is no problem whatsoever, with disagreeing. But at least have some type of intellect and explain why you disagree and not just attempt to use big words or say things like "yall just a haterz!" Oh but what you're saying, you consider it "constructive criticism?" You wouldn't know the true meaning of constructive criticism if it came out of your asshole. You are reading a blog post, a person that devoted time, effort and emotions into a thousand plus words. It shouldn't come to having the writer explain how long or how loyal they are to a team. Its a fucked up situation to be in and not fair to the writer having to explain everything. You dont go up to Salvador Dali and tell him his painting The Persistence of Memory sucks because the clocks look like floppy balls.
What I'm trying to say folks is that all of this is entertainment. Its a sport. None of us play professionally and all we can do is watch and commentate. Stop taking it all personal and just have fun with it; thats exactly what I do on here. I've personally been criticized for everything on this website; shitty spelling, horrible grammar, and you know what: FUCK'EM.
I dont have to explain why I graduated with a C average or why I took the time to write this and feel the need to express myself. I did it because I'm tired of seeing people do what they love get shit thrown at them by people that dont agree. I did this to stick up for someone that I feel was being bullied by the audience. I deal with hecklers all the time and they're the easiest to retaliate to because they think they know what they're doing, even though they are fucking clueless. Personally, Kobe Bryant is the greatest basketball player that ever lived and he probably sucks at writing. COME AT ME BRO.
LETS GO LAKERS!
