I think it has something to do with him being a Laker. I was programmed to hate the Lakers and everyone associated. Once the rivalry fizzled, I lost interest in their little team. Kind of the same way I disliked Bryon Russell. I don't think I would've even cared who he was if he didn't play for the Jazz while they were beating us in the Midwest Division and then in the playoffs. Eh, I don't really care about either one now.
