In Response to Re: Arrogant : You're right RU. That was uncalled for. Now I've lowered myself to Sybil's level. My apologies. But, men and boys tend to live through their sports teams. My wife could care less about the teams that I support and in all honesty, most women don't get into supporting sports teams the way that you and Ms Lith do. Although I support the Lakers and other LA area teams, I won't be crushed if they don't win a title. The way I see it, the sun will still come up, the birds will still be singing and I'll still have a job. Then I'll start looking forward to the next season, be it baseball, college football, basketball or whatever. Some of the folks on this forum will be crushed if the C's don't win it all. And then they'll have to contend with the coming "dark days" because of Danny Ainge's mishandling of the team. I feel confident that Dr. Buss and Mitch Kupchak will do whatever is necessary to keep the Lakers at a championship level.

You said it all when you said it. Health, happy home and job security is what is most important.
I love my teams, only ask that they play hard and when they win a title it's absolutely grand. Have to admit I am riding an a bit of a roller coaster with the Canucks at the moment. Really want them to win so badly, we're so close this season will be terrible if we lose, only because we've never won a Stanley Cup.
You hit on what set the Lakers apart from other NBA teams. Exceptional management which has been a staple since 1979. Stable ownership and a good climate to live in if you don't like snow. LA has it's bad points but I think it's an easy sell to an athlete.
I think this current era is rapidly coming to an end for us Jackson retiring is a massive loss and he really does keep the team focused. I think the Celtics are in the same situation we are. However I really do think we'll be back as a serious contender and hopefully there won't be a 12 year wait between championships for us again.
