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.

jdmurray88, Freeman is an idiot thats why he writes 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 of the year title, that still boggles my mind, or anything else good about the game or teams but no, Freeman has to write about something that has nothing to do with the game or teams but instead writes about some stupid few drunken fools destroying properties BUT since they are Lakers fans, I guess to Freeman thats part of the game and therefore be news worthy.

And I take it that some of you, including Freeman, is surprise about this? I think it comes to a point now that this act of rioting is a common act of celebration now everytime the team of the winning city wins, its nothing new. The minute the game was over you knew it already there will be some rowdy fans that will destroy someone's property other than their own. The only way this type of behavior is going to stop is if the fines are big and scary enough that it will make these hooligans think twice before commiting the act. If its just a small fines and you're out walking the street again in a few hours, this practice will keep going on and we just have to live with it. This article should be for ALL the fans and ALL sports, not just the Lakers fans as every winning team fans does it. Grow up Freeman and quit living in the 80s mentality.

Why would he write something bad about Kobe?  Is it because he is selfish, a bad general manager, a poor teammate...a rapist (alleged)?

You're an idiot.  This was not the Magic's first ever championship series.  They lost to the Rockets back in the mid 90s when Shaq was there.  If you're going to rip somone for an opinion, at least get your facts straight.

This is not a surprise...every year after every championship in nearly every professional or major college sport there is some relatively small group of drunken idiots (who may or may not be actual "fans" and just idiots looking for an excuse to tear things up) who cause problems. It is certainly not all Laker fans, just has it has not been all of the fans of any other team in the past, nor will it be in the future.

hahahahaha,  just shut it magic fan,      Freeman is a total joke-   millions of People in the Greater Los Angeles area & a very few cause some problems (which the media has overhyped to make it seem like there was widespread rioting in the city which is not true).    


The vast majority of Los Angeles- celebrated like true champions-    &
