One person who will be glued to their seat for Sunday night's game is a Glendale woman. She's cheered on nine championship teams here in her ten decades.

102-year old Gertrude Ness may be the Lakers oldest fan.

She's been following the team since they moved from her native Minnesota. Gertrude has been watching the series and has gotten pretty fired up about calls she believes were wrong.

Gertrude isn't just a basketball fan.

She actually played guard for her high school and college teams in the 1920's.

And her favorite player? One of the greatest of all time: Magic Johnson.
