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.
