Throughout history, the Los Angeles Lakers have been blessed with an assortment of great rivals, teams and players who just lived to piss fans off — some more than others. If either through their off-court actions, or simply because they would consistently kill the Lakers regardless of the jersey they were wearing, those players will forever be scorched in fans’ memories.

Which brings us to today’s episode of “Talk-O-Tuesday.”

Our hosts Alex Padilla and Alex Regla, each take turns listing off their top-five most hated players during their Laker fandom while also recounting painful specifics on why they were included. To maybe no one’s surprise, both hosts share their top pick.
