Lakers fans love chances in Finals

If Los Angeles Lakers fans are ever unfairly labeled as
frontrunners, bandwagoners, or clueless Hollywood types … well,
they can blame Jimmy Kimmel and his latest segment of “Lie Witness
News.” The
Jimmy Kimmel Live reporter stood outside the show’s studio
and asked self-identified Lakers fans how they were feeling about
Los Angeles’ chances in the NBA Finals.

Absolute hilarity ensues, and it goes to demonstrate just how
far individuals will go to appear that they are “in the know.” If
you think that the Lakers have a good chance of winning the Stanley
Cup this year (which one interviewee does), you probably should not
be answering any questions about sports. Like, ever. Unless you
want to be the idiot that says, “Any team can be eliminated and
come back, as long as they get their act together.”

Now, these clearly aren’t die-hard members of the Purple and
Gold faithful, but it just goes to show how much people will
pretend to know if it gets them a few seconds on camera. Advice: if
anybody ever asks you to be interviewed for a segment on
Jimmy Kimmel Live, you should politely decline the offer,
and sprint away in the opposite direction.
