09 champs

Anyone who knows me well enough knows that I can be a very superstitious person. It’s the reason I haven’t written many Lakers related posts this postseason. But enough of that. The CHAMPS are here.

It’s been seven long years since the last title. I forgot what it feels like to have the team you follow every single game for nine months a year win a championship. It does feel new again, that’s for sure.

And in case you forgot, let’s take a moment to look back at what I wrote one year ago after that embarassing loss to the Celtics:

To Whom It May Concern:

To all of you who claim to be Lakers fans. To all of you throwing out those flags. To all of you jumping ship — please, don’t let the door hit your ass on the way out.

Where were you the past three years? Where were you when we missed the playoffs for only the 5th time in 60 years? Where were you when Kobe was on the brink of being traded? I understand fair-weather fans come with the territory. But to be completely honest, I don’t like you.

You don’t deserve to celebrate the success if you weren’t there to go through the failures. So jump off the bandwagon now, but when we come back next year — and we will, trust me — there won’t be any more room for you.

P.S. To those brand-new Celtics fans that seem to be popping up left and right — stop cheering and have a seat. You didn’t even know they existed a month ago. Your act is tired. Go Patriots.

Thanks for your time,
J Diaz

Thanks goes out to the Lakers for making me look like a genius. They’re finally back on top. And you know what? The last seven years were worth it.
