about 15,000 people came to watch the game on the big screen at the Palace. Really cool for a road game. We filled the whole lower bowl and half of the uppser bowl. The Laker hatred reach its peak near halftime when the chants went from "beat LA" to "**** LA" I swear it was louder than the freaking staples center.
As for the few LAKER fans that adred to show up.....bthey were beaten severely. No, I'm not kidding. A few guys were running up the aisles waving Kobe Bryant Jerseys and yelling "Pistons suck" at every row. Hey, I admire the fandom, but in a crowd of PISTON fans? Thats just stupid. Needless to say, a few guys got tired of them near halftime and brawled with them. The cpos came and tossed the Laker fans out..dunno if the Pistons fan got the boot too....
We had a HUGE party going near the end until Kobe's shot.....man, everyone just got silent. Still, it was a memorable experience.
Did you guys do something similar in 200?
