[QUOTE]Well I just viewed the video......yawn........no one is addressing the question of why the Lakers waited over 40 years (allegedly) to recognize the Minny championships.....

No one cared when we grew up in the 70's and 80's.
After 3-peating (not a real word) in the 90's, the lakers thought they were the best franchise ever.
TheOldPerv is obsessed with catching and passing the Celtics, so.........
in a lazy effort to get closer, without actually doing the work (I'm a HS teacher, so this is common - give me an "A", I don't deserve it, but I want it)
they "recognized" the MN titles and TOOK them - adding 5 to the total.
Naturally Weasel Stern didn't object, Buss OWNS him, so it went from 10-15 just like that.
RU Worthy is also correct. IF the day ever comes when the LA franchise surpasses Boston, that banner will come down so fast it will make your head spin.
It's phony, Buss is phony, the whole concept is phony.
And while I will not post on "Tainted Championship", because they are not tainted, this one and the Gasol trade (not the trade but the actual NEED for the trade) I will fight for.
