Ways to cope with Lakers Fans


I am a long time die hard Warriors fan who grew up in the Bay Area loving this team from the days of J-Rich, Antawn Jamison,  and Gilbert Arenas to the current trio of Monta Ellis, Steph Curry, and Anthony Randolph. However, this year I had to leave the Bay to go to college, and unfortunately I ended up in So-CAL. I don't have any complaints about the college or So-CAL in general, it just pisses me off how many Faker fans there are down here. Instead of seeing Richardson, Davis, and Ellis jerseys everywhere all is see is Kobe. That alone is ignorable, but over the course of the season it became evident that I am a Warriors fan and ever since then I've been taking crap from all these so called "Laker Fans."

I put it in quotes because as many of you know, there is no such thing as a real Lakers fan. People only like that team because they win all the time and because they have no idea what basketball is really about. Try asking any of them to name 5 other Lakers than Kobe and they have no idea what's going on. It gets worse when they claim that their team is better than my team. Really? Are you serious? How can you even claim that a team is yours if the only player you can name is Kobe Bryant?

This FanPost was really just created for me to get my feelings out on the matter. I was just wondering if any of you have had to deal with Faker fans like this and have any advice on how to put up with them. I'm stuck here for another month so any help would be appreciated...
