3. The Lakers Nation - An up and comer, kids. Look out.
2. Lakers Blog - They think I'm a hater (and they can't defend that, because while I didn't read that post, I did hit CTRL-F and searched for the word "hater," and found it. Check and mate), but the brothers Kamenetzky run a fabulous MSM blog. Always coming through with the sort of posts I love to write and love to read from others.
1. Forum Blue and Gold - It's a great thing when a team as prominent and important and as successful as the Lakers has a blog that lives up to the franchise's exalted stature. I don't want to sound too breathless in describing Kurt's work, but anyone who's ever read a game preview, or his nuanced (nuance like you wouldn't believe, bro-tha) takes, or the way he turns a phrase and then uses actual evidence to support it ... it's an amazing thing, this site.
