This Week’s City…


From Kareem, to Magic, to Kobe, Los Angeles has typically been the Lake Show. The Kings briefly stole the spotlight during the tenure of Wayne Gretzky. The Dodgers, since their move west in the 1950s, have had significant periods of dominance with the likes of Sandy Koufax and Tommy LaSorda. However, even with the all the success that has ruled the headlines of the Los Angeles papers, it is all overshadowed by the lack of a NFL team in the nation’s second biggest market.

We will cover the Lakers, Blakers (Clippers), Dodgers, Angels and Kings. But, we also plan on spending a significant amount of time talking about the lack of a football team in the nation’s second largest media market.

Stay tuned for more updates!
