Pau Gasol’s brother Adria had words for Lakers fans as the team was getting demolished in Game 3 of their series with the San Antonio Spurs on Friday. Adria, who is known for speaking his mind, tweeted in response to Lakers fans turning on the team: People at Staples act like they’re forced to be here. — Adrià Gasol (@AdriaGasol) April 27, 2013 The fans were getting rowdy as the team was getting routed. Fans began chanting “We want Phil!” while the team was getting blown out, which was a call for the team to making a coaching change from Mike D’Antoni to Phil Jackson. Someone should probably break it to the fans gently that Phil probably wouldn’t have much interest in this aging, injury-depleted roster. One thing we’re seeing is how spoiled Lakers fans are. Since 2000, the team has won five titles and lost in two NBA Finals. The fans are used to seeing the team compete for an NBA title, so watching the team get swept to end a disappointing season has left many of them bitter. But fans should realize that if this is as bad as it gets in Laker land, it’s still much much better than what most fan bases deal with.
