Regardless Of Celtics Signing, Shaq Is A Laker For Life
Sports fans have long been known for short memories. Although Janet Jackson was speaking on behalf of neglected women back in 1986 with her song, "What Have You Done For Me Lately," she might as well have been speaking for fans of sports teams.
It's amazing how a player can be so beloved one day and despised the next, and vice versa. Remember how much Lakers fans hated Karl Malone during his Hall of Fame career in Utah, only to make a 180 degree turn when he signed with the Lakers in 2003? And should I even mention LeBron James? Yeah, probably not.
The latest example of a fan base turning irate towards one of their former players involves one of the game's and the Lakers' best players of all-time: Shaquille O'Neal.
