Obligatory Sports Post

(A staple from the ESPN board...)

ESPN.com is reporting that LA Laker head-coach Rudy Tomjanovich will be stepping down as head coach after tonight's game against the Portland Trail Blazers. While apparently not a serious issue, his health is said to be in part at least driving this decision. That, and the fact that his team is simply not very good (23-19, 7th in the Western Conference) and not currently playing well. Not that they were playing particularly well prior to Kobe Bryant's ankle-injury.

Not sure what to think here...last time the Lakers had to rebuild they only had to suffer one losing season ('93-'94) and two years as a #8 seed in the playoffs ('91-'92, '92-'93). This time around, I'm not so sure...

I haven't spent alot of time "pondering" the issue, but I'm not sure there's another Del Harris out there who is going to come in, settle down the team and restore respectability on the court. Likewise, who is the next Shaq--the big FA signing that all by itself changes the on-court fortunes of the franchise? I just don't know...

In the meantime I fear it may get ugly before it gets better given the antics of Kobe, and the lack of supporting talent aside from Caron Butler and Lamar Odom.
