Hi Lakers forum members,
I live in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. Hockey is my main sport, both for playing and obsessing over- go Flames go! However, I have had a renewed interest in basketball in the last few months. As a teenager, I was really interested in the NBA (around 1999-2002), with Kobe and the Lakers being my team of choice.I have decided that I am in this for the long haul- let's go Lakers! I recently read the book about Magic Johnson and Larry Bird and I loved every page. I will try not to get too caught up in the past glories, as the team appears to have plenty of interesting things going on at present. Please fill me in on thingsI need to know as a developing Lakers diehard. I am really curious and excited to develop a new fandom in a new sport. Basketball isn't that big a deal in these parts, but I think it's pretty awesome! Thanks for any info, I look forward to vieiwing and posting many threads.
