The month of July is about as bad as it gets in the world of sports, especially when your favorite baseball team is seven and a half games out of first place in the division while probably outperforming expectations. About the only thing that could save this time of year is the MLB All-Star Game, but that too is a disappointment.
As a die-hard Lakers fan and fourth-generation Los Angeles native this is really painful for me to admit, but it seems that a new era of Los Angeles dominance in the NBA might be about to peak — and sadly, I’m not referring to the Lakers.
Six months ago, I wrote a column in which I lamented over my sad existence as a Warriors fan and sought to help out my favorite sports team by exposing the blueprint for NBA success. Six months older and six months wiser I now revisit this previously laid blueprint. Try not to laugh.
