As if we needed more evidence that Laker fans are remarkably dedicated, we have ourselves a new case of super-fandom. We found out on Twitter this morning that Laker fan @ahmedbinsulayem took out a full-page ad in the L.A. Times thanking Bryant for his contributions to the Lakers, and wishing him a speedy recovery.
There are plenty of people who give Laker fans a hard time for a variety of reasons, but nobody will deny the devotion to a franchise shown here.
This is one of the most fantastic things about social media the ability to see these things and realize just how dedicated some fans are to their team.
