Disregard building a winning team. Let's throw 40 mil at Kobe cause he will provide ton of revenue even when he sits out all season and when the team sucks.

Saddest thing about that article is that the Lakers still have more than double the viewership than the Clippers, even though this is one of the Lakers' worst seasons ever, and it's the Clippers best season.

They've been busy casting voodoo curses at WestGOAT all season so Durcant doesn't have to go back to being #2 in OKC. No time for tv.

You better respect a legend when you see one. People seem to forget how many rings he helped bring to the Lakers nation. The minute he gets injured and sideline people just start ****ting on him. He deserve every penny.

The 50% lost in views is just the bandwagoners jumping off and joining the Heat.


I said revenue. Everything i said above is no irrelevant, lol

Reading comprehension > you.

Lol @ people "all of a sudden" hating on kobe

There was no revenue lost. The 40m is referring to kobe's contract that he just signed. Lol @ signing a player thats 35, coming off of achilles injury and knee injury to a 2 yr deal worth 40+ million.

Lol @ heat.

No, their time on the lakers bandwagon has brainwashed them from rooting for the best player since Jordan.

You mean jumping off and joining Indiana and then jumping off there and joining OKC

Just like when Miami had a 15 win season in 2008 and they were still ranked 8th in attendance. But I thought all Heat fans are bandwagoners?

If anything Pacer fans are the biggest bandwagoners. They were ranked in the bottom for attendance for several years and all of a sudden everybody is a Pacer fan.

If anything this just proves that the Lakers need Kobe if only for TV ratings. Kobe is a sure thing, other "superstars" the Lakers might pick up in the off-season is not.

The team sucks, and Kobe is not playing. Is anyone really surprised by the ratings?

Kobe = Lakers.


Probably too busy watching Pacers games.

Would rather watch Pacers game than Lakers game this season. It's hard to watch the Lakers, because you expect and want them to lose every game from here on out. And I love watching Bynum play.

I mean, it makes sense. All the Lakers fans used to call Miami Heat fans bandwagoners, which is pretty funny. I don't live anywhere near either place and there was a lot more lakers fans where i lived than Heat fans.

Cliffs: Lakers had one of the biggest bandwagons of all time

Lol at you counting their attendance during the 15 win season. Who wouldn't go to an nba game where you could get a 3 dollar ticket lol

Ehh I could be a part of that decline. I've been too busy to even watch games lately thanks to the university craze and finals. Probably watch every 3rd or so game srs

Lawd just read the stats

Even though Lakers have been sucking donkey dick they still net more viewers than Clips who are bake
