The LA team is once again the 'most hated in America'. Or at least, in 34 states, a map that used to dominate the Warriors, which remained the most rejected in several states ... and more as you get closer to Ohio (played four Finals and won three against the Cavaliers) .

The Kings, Division rival and neighbor of the Lakers, have already joked about this reconfiguration of the map on their Twitter account:

Another two teams appear in addition to Lakers and Warriors. The Rockets in two states (bordering Texas, of course) and the Clippers, which are the most rejected in their California. Another proof that they do not have it easy to win more share in the LA market, a city closely linked to the Lakers. Although they will also say the optimistic, a sign that they have gained relevance because of the fact that indifference is worse than hate ....
