A semi-riot after your team wins a championship? Really? Isn't that very 1980s?

Five police officers were hurt trying to stop Laker fan rioters. Excellent. Police are fighting crime and terrorism and some of them have to worry about idiot fans burning and destroying after a game.

Some cops had rocks and bottles thrown at them.

Here's a suggestion for would-be rioters.

After the game, go home.

Pick up aforementioned rock.

Then throw it at your own car.

Or better yet have another rioter throw it at your car.

It's just a suggestion.

True Laker fans will celebrate throughout the summer?  This is  your life?  So if the Lakers had lost, your summer would have been ruined?  How ridiculously sad is that?

Laker fans do not need an excuse to be idiots.  If you lived among this riffraff, and unfortunately I do, you would realize that most Laker fans are idiots.  40 & 50 year old guys running around in full Laker uniforms.  Sad and funny at the same time.

Like championship riots are brand new and started this season in LA right. You're a joke Freeman why don't you lie on your resume some more.

Keep trying to find things to throw in the Lakers, and Laker fan's faces. It's amusing how your hating never stops. You and Doyel have to be the most diabolical haters.

Freeman, please don't lump all Laker fans into this category.  That would be like me saying that all black people riot.  Understand?

Your post started of so great, then you went on a rant about something that was not even part of this article.

Your right about a few fans making all Laker fans look bad. I went through this in the late 80's with the riots in Detroit. It is unfortunate for us real fans. That being said, I am true Laker hater, but I hate the Lakers as a whole. I would gladly love to have Kobe on the Pistons and can give him his due as a great player. Congrats to the Lakers and their true non-rioting fans.

Okay , so there is a consensus that the Laker fans who rioted are lacking in a few areas.  But the question remains...what to do about it?  A 2 or 3 day stay in the pokey won't do much. 

Big Fines?...yeah right - most of the idiots (of the 3 who have a job) spent all of their $300 per week paycheck buying the fake gear and shoes they were wearing.

Those that didn't spend every miserable dime they had on the Laker jacket stole the jacket anyway, so no...fines are out.

I like community service.  A bunch of it.  But not in the neighborhoods where they rioted and live - too easy.

I say make 'em go to all the Clippers player's homes and have them do yard work for a month, while wearing Clipper gear.  And then force them to watch WNBA re-runs for 4 hours each night.  The final test at the end of the month is they have to recite the entire Charlotte Bobcat roster.

You won't any repeat offenders if the Lakers win again soon.

" about some idiotic things. you're right, he can write about Kobe winning his 4th ring, winning without Shaq that some people think it was impossible because they don't have a "team" concept, he could write about Phil winning his 10th NBA title, or him not once won the coach "

Freeman can't stand that Kobe won and shut up all his haters especialy Freeman.
This guy "freeman" can't write about anything positive. Maybe he is paid to do so, but to me it is getting too old.

He needs to find some more productive things to do in his life. I don't know how CBS hired him and paying him for writing all this non-sense.

Wish he just stop doing that.

Is he running out of words & ideas? Now that he is biting his shoe after Kobe and Lakers won the title, he can't find anything else to criticize. I am sure it is killing this Lakers hater that they won & Kobe left no room to be criticized after his brilliant performance.
Freeman, you are soo negative person. You never write anything good, positive, and productive.
While I disagree with any riots after any championship, your suggestion to throw a rock at cars is just stupid, retard, ignorant and classless.
Are you professional writer? Can’t you do any better? Who hired you? My goodness, you are so ignorant.
