There are a number of teams Dallas fans love to root against, but the Lakers of Los Angeles are one of the top three without question. It probably started with the 1988 Western Conference Finals, but with so many younger fans, the Laker hate grew out of their early 2000's dominance and title runs in 2008 and 2010. The Lakers always seemed to get the better of Dallas for over 20 years. Since 2011, though, the Lakers have been on a sight and steady downward trajectory. These two proud franchises will do battle once again, but without near the fanfare of past match up. With all the new faces in LA, we here at MavsMoneyball want to know: which new Laker are you most interested in seeing? Let us know why in the comments!
