The optimist. Even in the worst of times (see the 2004-05 Lakers season), this person remains calm, cool and collected. They almost appear to have no real emotional attachment to the Lakers whatsoever, as they never feel that times of trouble have any real impact on the rest of the season.
While this person might not appear to be a true fan, such optimistic fans are some of the franchise’s truest supporters. They are just as frustrated as everyone else, but they understand the Lakers’ culture, and that with Kobe Bryant on the roster, you can never count out the Purple and Gold.
Kobe might be injured and the Lakers could be on an 11-game losing streak, but somehow, this person still can see the silver lining.
