Why is ESPN even thinking about The Lakers?

Just saw on ESPN.com that The Lakers point guard, Steve Nash is out for the season. Heard Kobe saying it’s okay, since Nash tried everything he could to get on the court. The Steak says The Lakers are gonna be all right.

NO! No they are not, no matter how much ESPN wishes The Lakers weren’t hot garbage. You know, the old NBA … where bad teams would trade their 1st rounders to The Lakers or the Celtics in exchange for junk … is done. GM’s now lose their jobs for bad trades. Especially when it means enhancing one of the “big market” teams enroute. No more Jerry West “Pau Gasol for junk” trades.

The Lakers are going to win 30 – 35 games this year with Kobe playing. I’m amused there’s a movement in sports media to make them relevant again. A couple of days ago, I saw where ESPN was talking to Kobe in The Lakers practice.

I wonder if the Clippers are going to try and completely destroy The Lakers this season. You know with the national media going in the tank for The Lakers. Another 48-point loss to their cross-court rivals might inspire some changes in Lakerville. The only problem is, the kind of players they need aren’t coming to play with Kobe Bryant. You know, the guy on the first year of a two-year extension worth $48M.

Says here ESPN is encouraging  teams to load up and hammer The Lakers every chance they get.

About bittersportspills

I love sports. I don't love the hype, homerism, ratings talk, self-important egomaniacs, bias or any of the other nonsense you get with the national media. Nor will you get the two clowns on sports talk radio who stage phony arguments. It doesn't make it entertaining. It makes it time to turn on your iPod and jam instead of listening to white noise generators. This is the sports blog for you, the ones who don't like everything Los Angeles or New York. Just because the sporting media is based there doesn't mean we have to like their teams. We do treat them fairly, though. That means if one of those cities has an average QB who plays particularly well...we'll note it. If they're garbage, we'll say so. Instead of crying "why, why, why" like a certain sports media homer did in his radio broadcast. This isn't my job...I have a real one. Nevertheless, I'll post here when I make an observation. Common sense in sports is nearly dead. Now we're attempting to bring it back.
