The Los Angeles Lakers have the best record in the Western Conference, the NBA's top-ranked defense and that's not the only thing that Lakers fans should feel good about. They've also re-asserted their throne as the NBA's most-hated team, according to some recent data gathered by SportsInsider.com.

The Lakers are no stranger to being hated by the fans of other teams, but over the last few years, they were simply not as fun to hate as they've been mired in a six-year playoff drought. That all appears to be changing as they are winning once again and look poised to be every bit of the contender they were billed to be in the preseason.

Basically, everywhere except for California, Ohio and some parts of Oklahoma, the Lakers are the most hated team in the league. Even though the Warriors have been decimated by injuries and are a far cry from their dynasty reality of yesterday, there's still plenty of animosity towards them even though they're having some down luck on the basketball court for the first time in a long time.
