Is Los Angeles a Dodgers town or are we more devoted to the Lakers? It’s a debate that has picked up steam over the last couple of months, brought on in part by the World Series win in October. But the debate appears to just be starting as the Lakers come back into the NBA spotlight with their Finals win.
The Rich Eisen Show recently brought up this topic, and we have some thoughts. Eisen argued that this was a Lakers town and that there weren’t nearly as many people devoted to the Dodgers. The show also argued that there were not even Dodger flags on cars, which we all know is not true.
Guys on the show also argued that the Dodgers’ World Series wasn’t legitimate since it was a 60-game season. Again, something pretty ridiculous. But the truth is that the Lakers do seem to have more national attention, which sort of happens with the history of players that have come through Los Angeles.
A poll ran by The Rich Eisen Show had 4,187 people vote on it as of Tuesday night. Of those votes, 74 percent voted that Los Angeles was a Lakers town. Only 26 percent voted in favor of it being a Dodgers town.
My opinion? I’m a baseball fan first and foremost, so I am likely biased. But I see no need to differentiate. I don’t think that it needs to be a town devoted solely to the Lakers or the Dodgers. We are a fanbase thoroughly dedicated to our teams, and there is nothing that can change that.
But I think we can all agree that we hate the Clippers.
Let’s go Dodgers. Let’s go Lakers. Let’s go LA.
