Hello everyone. I'm a new dude and want to introduce myself by saying hi. I've been a laker fan since 1980 and feel I have a lot to offer. I'm glad to be on a forum that is oriented toward Laker fans being themselves and am looking forward to being a member of this family. I hope I can earn your respect and include myself in all dialogue. It's an honor to be here and am looking forward to participating in all discussions. I hope to become a member you all respect. Thanks.
