Live Lakers-76ers Chat plus a note in changes to the Lakers blog

January 29, 2010 |  3:30 pm


The Lakers blog, effective today, will also feature posts from our Lakers' beat writers Mike Bresnahan and Broderick Turner, giving everyone here more Lakers news and notes for their reading pleasure.

Brez and BT (as I call them) have often supplemented their beat coverage in the newspaper on the Fabulous Forum blog with breaking news tidbits, in-game updates and other supplemental items. The most recent example includes Brez's note on Thursday that Lakers forward Pau Gasol was selected for the NBA All-Star game, hours before the news was officially announced on TNT. Now that coverage will instead appear in the Lakers blog so that we can give you the best and most comprehensive Lakers coverage in the blogosphere.

Beyond that, I will fill the same role I have served these past few weeks, hosting live game chats, writing post-game and practice items, shooting video and finding other ways to satisfy your insatiable Lakers fix. 

I have worked well with Brez and BT for the past nine months in various capacities, and I'm sure you will notice that in our coverage. That may be obvious to you already. After all, they already assigned me a nickname in one of our post-game videos.
