Well thank you Kobe's Empire! I like the way you think also! Its just that the Lakers already draw a huge national following, 13.4 million as saw by the 02 NBA Finals, and you know those fans tuning in were not tuning in cuz of the Nets. So imagine if we actualy did get Payton and Malone? instant All-Star Dream Team! Put it this way, The current NBA champs only drew 6.4 million viewers for the 03' Finals, down over 50% from the Lakers who swept the Nets. Imagine if the Lakers were to face the New York Knicks in one of the next 3 NBA finals of our next 3 peat? Along with our All-Star team, combined with the two biggest markets in the league, we would definantly break ratings records. The current record is 18.4 million in the late 90's with Jordan in the NBA Finals. The Lakers did come close to breaking that already in the 02' Western Conference Finals Vs the Kings. Game 7 of that series drew 18.1 million. Another record I'm intrested in breaking is the NBA attendance record. That one is also held by Jordan and the Bulls when they drew the blunt of over 60,000 people in attendance, cant remember the year. We could break that with our All-Star team if we were to move our NBA Finals games to Dodger's Stadium. the stadieum it's self holds 50,000. Add in 10-12 thousand to fill in the field around the court and BOOM, LAKERS OWN THE ATTENDANCE RECORD! Soon we will own the Attendance record, ratings record, merchandising record, championships record, and the best player in NBA history, KOBE [Swearing is not permitted at Clublakers. You must edit this post prior to submitting.] BRYANT! We will own the NBA. It will soon be to where you dont minchen the NBA with the Lakers!!!!! And to think, this all will only take 3 more years!!!!!!
