NBA Finals Lakers Celtics Game 7: Lakers fans celebrate 17th title by being complete morons

Jun 18, 2010, 2:03 AM EDT

Someone, you’ve got to explain it to me. 

Your team has just won its seventeenth title. You mock other teams’ passion, saying “Act like you’ve been there.” You rarely show up on time for home games, and chant for tacos. And you elect to react to your second consecutive championship by…
Flipping cars, throwing rocks at cops, and dragging people out of their cars and beating them?
Lakers fans, Ron Artest thinks you’re crazy. 
KCAL in Los Angeles is reporting on the madness, and has footage from their helicopters which caught the riots in LA outside the Staples center and across the City of Angels after the Lakers won their latest title.
The reports indicate people are throwing bricks and rocks at the police, burning and flipping cars, and in some instances, attacking people, pulling them out of their vehicles and “kicking them repeatedly.” There are reports of looting at a McDonalds and a gas station. The LA Times reports that 9 people have been arrested outside of Staples and the number is rising. 
Never underestimate the idiocy of people motivated by a Jack in the Box taco. 
We’ll keep you updated on the fallout from LA loving LA.

    Gee, I guess someone named Matt Moore sure is a poor sport.
    Thanks for lumping all of us into one big ball, Matt. There are literally millions of Laker fans, but yet you put all of us into one pot thanks to a few a-holes.
    I’m sure glad MSNBC still employs you. Because if I was your boss, your ass would be out on the street the next day.

    We won our 17th title already? Wow, I thought it was 16th!
    What a moron. LOL

    It is the Lakers’ 17th title. Ron likely overlooked the Lakers’ 1948 NBL title.

    What more do you expect out of the city of illegal immigrants.

    haha this behavior is common place at UMass Amherst.

    Hey Ron, welcome to being a Philadelphia fan. Not all that fun to be lumped in with morons, is it?

  7. Ron - Jun 18, 2010 at 2:07 PM

    You got a real good point there, Joe. I will remember that next time I hear such baloney about Philly fans.
    Love your town, by the way.
    NBL doesn’t count.
