Punched In The NBA Head, As Well As The MLB Gut

The Shreveport Times, in an article this morning, managed to find a creative way to slight both the Lakers AND the Dodgers in one fell swoop:

NEW ORLEANS — The NBA's version of Major League Baseball's Los Angeles Dodgers may not have an owner either and their future may forever be tenuous, but the New Orleans Hornets will always have Sunday, April 24, 2011.

That was the night they beat the back-to-back NBA champion Los Angeles Lakers and left their back-to-back NBA finals MVP Kobe Bryant limping out of New Orleans Arena on crutches after a 93-88 victory in front of a consecutive sold-out crowd of 18,083 that was as in the game as Hornets' triple-double machine Chris Paul.

The win evened the best-of-seven Western Conference playoff opening round at two games apiece and guaranteed at least one more overflow gate at New Orleans Arena on Thursday night after the Hornets play Game 5 in Los Angeles at 9:30 central time tonight.

That's it. We're winning both games today.
