Well since they beat the Spurs (and Rockets) ESPN is starting to see that the Lakers are for real.
Ain't trippin' though. The haters will always hate.

I'm tired of ESPN period. I find it gay how they refuse to show any highlights of Lebron getting blocked or Wade getting stripped for the ball. Only time I watch ESPN anymore is if they're showing a game. Other than that, I'll get the highlights from NBA or NFL tv.

I'm kind of used to it by now. They hated on us even when we had our 3-Peat run.

They don't only hate the Lakers, they hate the whole West Coast. I'm not talking about the Western section of the NBA, I'm talking about the whole West in the US in all of sports. The constantly bash the Niners, Raiders, A's, Giants, Padres, angels, Warriors, Kings and Clippers. They're on USC's nuts though.

are you kidding, I remember before USC beat Oklahoma, I heard ESPN people talking about how a westcoast school can't beat a southern school. I was pissed. SC whooped that ass, then lost the next year. But it's all good. ESPN has major eastcoast biased. If the Knicks ever win the title, they'll compare them to the '96-'97 Bulls, and if the Lakers ever win 73 games, they wouldn't be impressed. They've always hated on the Lakers. I remember when Nick Van Exel was the leader, they never played highlights. Then we signed Shaq, and I was like, they'll respect us now, nope. Then we won the title, and I was like, they'll respect us now, nope. So fuck them and their sorry ass Knicks.

I now live in Minnesota, I like to watch my Laker games, and if I can't watch the highlights. It's hard to follow a team when the national news doesn't cover them too much, or when you look online to see their record, and you say, we are doing well, and the nation news say we suck because we haven't been tested yet. But it's whatever. I would understand if I was a Clipper fan, why my team ain't being covered, but even during the 3peat era, I saw more Mavs highlights then Lakers, and we were the fuckin' NBA champs. As long as the Lakers win, I'm happy, it's just not the same picture to see the Lakers nationally as it is in Cali. Back home, you knew the whole story, the national news down plays it.

Same thing with hip-hop magazines.  They are almost all primarily East Coast based so they have a bias against the West in general.  Espn is just going with the NBA marketing flow and catering to LeBron and Wade especially, to bring in the $$$$.  They're a fuckin business first and foremost.  Let's not forget that.  If you dont agree with that... go find a ECC forum to post in.

I am definitely a strong Lakers fan...but I don't think they hate on em nearly as much as they used to. They still say lil shit about them here n there, but they don't say too much that is blatantly hating, especially not as much as they did when Kobe first caught the case and 2005 when we didn't make the playoffs. There are some analysts who seem to favor them, and some to seem to always have something negative to say.

To me.....I don't really see them as being as much East Coast biased as I see them as complete, blatant, dickriders. When they realized USC was for real, they jocked the hell outta them and hated on everybody else, including Texas...and I'm a SC fan. They made it sound like Vince Young wasn't for real til he won that game, and then there were still some analysts saying "USC still could beat them, but they just didn't tonight".

In 2004, I definitely remember them saying this in the 2nd round....."NOBODY from the Eastern Conference will win a championship for at least five years". Before the Lakers and Pistons series, NOOOBODY was goin for the Pistons, and I remember them saying "I'll be surprised if the Pistons win a single game"....but as soon as the series was over, "The Lakers never had much of a chance."

With the Lakers in 06, they made it sound like we couldn't even make the playoffs in 2006, until late in the season, when all of a sudden, "they might actually upset the Suns"...and when we were up 3-1, they all had that "I told you so" vibe....and soon as they lost, it was like "well......the Lakers don't have that experience they need". When this season first started, I remember two of the writers on "Around the horn" saying that "The Lakers are truly contenders for the title" and two were saying "They need a lot of experience, and they might not even make the playoffs".

For USC this year, they were hella up and down on them. For the first few weeks, all I heard is "they haven't played anybody for real, and they have barely been winning, so they aren't a serious contender". When they lost to Oregon St., it was like "I told you so"...but after they won the rest of their games before ND, it was like "USC is still a top team", and when they beat ND, it was "Yes, this is not just a mere shadow of the 2005 team, they are a great team who deserves to be #2.........as long as they beat UCLA". So as soon as they lose to UCLA, "they definitely weren't deserving of the #2 spot, and they proved that they are not as good of a team as people thought".

I don't even want to get in the up and down pattern of dickriding and doubting that they've been doing on Reggie Bush this year, and the same for Vince Young and Matt Lienart since last year. They don't just wait until a few games to comment....they seem to make strong judgments after EVERY game. I remember a month ago, it was "Reggie Bush isn't even the best rookie on his team"....to "after that four touchdown game, he is now a candidate for rookie of the year".

So yeah......I just feel that they basically dickride and love to say "I told you so", and when they get proven wrong, it's more less "well that player/team did/didn't live up to their expectations" versus "we made a very inaccurate prediction".

ESPN is building a broadcasting center in downtown LA, so hopefully that will help eliminate some of the bias.

That does help, but its not like every team doesnt play 41 home games...

Tonights game vs Rockets really had me pissed off at the ESPN announcers.They keeped on commenting about how Kobe is taking to  many shots but yet they were all on Yao's nutts with pretty much the same amount of shots taken.Fuck em and feed them cold sardins.They just kept on bashin the Lakers and Kobe.The only i reason i even watch Lakers on ESPN because i have an HDTV and they broadcast it in HD.I dunno i might just put a radio and mute the TV for their next Laker game and see how that works out.

i think it usually depends on what sports writers they have on there, most of them are from chicago or new york newspapers, every now and then they throw in an la times reporter, but it's always someone from the chicago sun times or some shit.

LMAO@anyone denying BSPN being the BIGGEST Laker hating organization of all time. They might hate the west, but NOTHING like they hate the Lakers/Kobe... Shit disgusts me every time I see it (other than Greg Anthony, who's the only decent one)...And now they've added Jon Barry too, who's still bitter over losing his playing time with the Lakers to Kobe...They all have a DEEP HATRED for the Lakers filled with passion, and everyone knows it...PeACe

Stephen A. Smith is cool too. Probably the least biased of anybody who works for that company.
