“It’s Lakers’ town we bleed purple and gold. Each fan has their reason to believe it is Lakers’ town but it is because we have more championships than them and have a history,” Briggs said.

“It’s Lakers all day man you already know. Lakers have the best roster balance between defense and offense which wasn’t proven throughout the last five years of dismal performance,” Coleman said.

“Lakers have had a bigger legacy over the years and even though it is the Clippers’ season with such a good team right now. It is still Lakers’ town because of the dynasty we have,” Alfaro said.

“I believe it is still a Lakers town since now they still have Anthony Davis. Last season they were complete trash but for sure this season the Western Conference finals will have Lakers vs. Clippers,” Williams said.
