Top 5 Reasons Kobe Bryant and The LA Lakers Won’t Win Rings In The Next 5 Years

Our Los Angeles Lakers have gone on a brilliant run the past decade or so, having won five of the past eleven NBA Championships on the backs of all-time Laker greats such as Shaquille O'Neal, Derek Fisher and Robert Horry, giving us memorable Finals performances that rival those of Laker legends Magic Johnson, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and James Worthy.

But while the team has regrettably attracted a lot of front-running, bandwagon "fans" that showed interest in the team only once we began our most recent championship run and having eschewed the Lakers during the "lost decade" of the 1990's for teams such as the Chicago Bulls and the Dallas Cowboys, these "Faker fans", as they are commonly referred to online, will once again abandon the team in en masse when our Lakers fail to bring home another Larry O'Brien Trophy over the next five years.

And perhaps this purging of the front-running bandwagoners may be the only silver lining in what will be a freezing, five-year Winterland in Lakerdom.

As discussed in my article, "Laker Disappointment: Is It Inevitable?", the cycle of Lakers dominance is once again at an end. 

Here are the Top 5 reasons why.
