I have been a Lakers fan my entire life. Ever since I saw James Worthy, Magic, and Kareem, I knew I would never ever root for another team. The Purple and Gold as well as Showtime had bitten me and sucked me in. It was actually my father who had a huge influence on me as he has been a Lakers fan since he was a teenager. Jerry West was one of his all time favorite players and he would tell my brothers and I all about him and Elgin Baylor AKA Tick Tock. My father's favorite player of all time is Magic Johnson. That is how I got into the team. James Worthy soon became my favorite player of all time. (Kobe Bryant is right there as well.) The Lakers play a huge role in my life. I have been with them when they were up and of course when they were down. In my opinion they are one of the greatest franchises of all time and I give credit to wonderful owners such as the late and great Dr. Jerry Buss who knew how to properly build a a brand or product. I feel that is where other owners such as Mark Cuban, Jerry Jones, and George Steinbrenner did the same.
