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.
Los Angeles 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.
While many of my friends here on campus saw commissioner David Stern’s statement scrawl across the bottom of ESPN’s news feed and shrugged their shoulders indifferently, I don’t think that they realize the implications this has for the NBA’s immediate future.
