How I was saved from the Lakers

Hey GSoMers! I'm sffanforlife and some of you may know me from gamethreads. my name wasn't true at one point.

I was a laker fan

let me explain

as a child of 7 years old, my father found interest in watching the nba. of course he bandwagoned and chose the lakers as his team.

he also later adopted the heat, but I stayed with the lakers.

crazy times, huh?

monta era

since I loved the game so much, and because my dad worked on the weekends, I was typically home with my mom with nothing to do in 5th grade

I watched monta screw up the warriors, but I thought he was great for the team. :P

so eventually, the warriors became my hobby and became closer and closer to me (just like how my crush grew on me lol(I got rejected :'( ))

so I was a casual dubs fan for a while. I actually was shocked that we would trade Monta. OUR MONTA for a scrubby center, but I understood that Bogut was awesome. I thought he was a major risk though.

I also thought Monta was an all-star snub. I guess I didn't have a brain back then. but I suppose I did have some sense, because I thought curry deserved ROY.

this year, I headed in as an equal lakers and warriors fan, but the warriors are so much fun to watch. just watching those young players grow up was an amazing experience. the first game I became a real warriors fan was against the lakers.

It was a really hard choice back then, but I liked the dubs a lot and wanted to see what they could do.

hence, the start of an epiphany

since then, I've cussed about kobe being kobe, manu flopping (partly cuz of lakers upbringing) and wade flopping.(I did also liked the heat because LeBron was there)

so where are my loyalties now?

well, I am proud to say I am a 100% warriors fan. while I still respect kobe and LeBron a lot, I would love the dubs the whip the heck out of them.

this is the history of sffanforlife

oh, stop it you, stop it

oh, and I was too lazy to capitalize
