    It's hard to find a lake in Los Angeles.
    They rarely acknowledge their years in Minneapolis, even though they won their first five titles there.
    They have become the NBA's version of the Yankees, as many basketball fans dislike them and players such as Karl Malone jump on their team in order to get elusive rings.
    They are notorious for their late-arriving fans, especially the celebrities who care more about being seen than watching the game.
    Every time they win a championship or host an All-Star game, Shaq yells at the crowd, 'Can you dig it?! Can you dig it?!'
    They play in the Staples Center.
