    I just finished a prayer to the almighty, thanking him for showering Muir baseball with the blessing of a CIF berth. Everyone’s in party mode, including Pasadena’s mayor, who has ordered a 35-gun salute, signifying the consecutive years of failure that have been joyously overcome.

    David Stern changed the landscape of the NBA with his nixing of the Paul-to-Lakers deal back in 2011. Safe to say this is what will always come to mind when thinking of the former commissioner. This one deal made Gasol and Odom vehement anti-Laker spokesmen, led to the awful Dwight Howard/Steve Nash acquisitions, and is probably the reason Kupchak now works elsewhere.
