Now that the Lakers have successfully built their own super team, they have without a doubt become one of the most hated teams in the NBA. But do they join the ranks of the most hated teams of all time?
Over the years, there have been a lot of hated teams for so many different reasons. There are the teams envied by others because of their success, the teams that have a jerk with a huge ego, the teams that play dirty, the teams that have an annoying fan base, and the list goes on and on.
Over the past several seasons, it's been a general trend for superstars to flock to a big market together, and that will usually anger the fans of the rest of the NBA.
One great example is the 2010-2011 Miami Heat squad. Players like LeBron James have gotten a lot of hate from NBA fans for "taking the easy way out," but are they really one of the most hated teams of all time?
There's only one way to find out.
