The Los Angeles Lakers fans may be some of the most spoiled fans ever. It is not necessarily a bad thing, it is more or less just a fact. They have had so many all-time greats and so many winning seasons that simply making the playoffs is not enough.

Thus with the acquisition of Dwight Howard, Lakers fans were able to dream even bigger. In combination with Howard’s capabilities, flashbacks of Shaquille O’Neal and Kareem Abdul Jabar were enough to send these expectations sky rocketing.

In return for these expectations, the Lakers sold massive amounts of merchandise, including jerseys. When the Lakers did not perform well, with Howard at the center, no pund intended, of it.

With his flip-flopping he dramatically increased fans frustrations, and reached a fever-pitch with his announcement to leave the team to join the Houston Rockets.

With that the Lakers fans react by burning jerseys among other things:
