What Kind of Fan are You in Times of Laker Crisis?

Everyone wants to be all-knowing when it comes to sports. We want to know if Andrew Bynum’s knees are going to make it through the season, how many points Kobe is going to score tomorrow night and if the Lakers are struggling, why are they? While none of these questions can actually be answered until they happen, fans love pretending to assert themselves as a pseudo-Assistant Coach.

While no one might take them seriously, they themselves believe everything that they are saying is 100 percent factual and going to happen. They speak in terms of X’s and O’s and offer realistic scenarios of possible outcomes. Some people who exhibit this persona know what they are talking about, while others are simply repeating (and oftentimes, mis-repeating) what they heard on Sports Center this morning.
