    Please just stop with the Lakers. In the frame of journalism, you've disrespected the ethical concept of objective viewpoint by continuing to focus on a team that has very little impact on the league at this point. Is it that because you live in LA and have covered the Lakers for some amount of time that you are no longer qualified to write about any other team that is actually relevant? I imagine that you've spent so much time cultivating connections within the Lakers organization that now you have no qualifications aside from the Lakers. You should be writing for something more regional, like the LA Times, not a national website. It's like if there was one national journalist who only wrote about the Pistons as if they were a national institution because they won some championships almost 20 years ago. No one wants to hear about a team that can't even win 25% of their games, no matter how you feel about their supposed legacy.

    If B/R understood the market, they would either pressure you to write about a team worth writing about, and I imagine the Clippers are geographically suitable for your new start, or relegate your articles to the back pages of the site. Ironically, your situation mirrors Kobe's: someone who is living off the value of their past work despite the fact that their most recent products are god-awful.

    You're just mad that Dwight left LA and all y'all got was Lin. Have fun overpaying Kobe for the next 5 years when y'all resign him to max deal.

    Amazing that Bleacher Report is employing a Lin only fan

    Pretty cold to call Howard out like you did after a 6'9, 200+ pound guy rolled over his knee. Dwight's injury could potentially be serious, and yet you're over here calling him out. You're an embarrassment to B/R.
