    @TP, a lot of coaches are gungho when offered a HC position. Once they dive into it, they realize it isn’t worth the 3k or 4k stipend for a 365 days a year job having to deal with admin and especially parents.

    The riots after Laker victories in the NBA Finals began occurring in the early 2000’s, following the team’s move to Staples Center. What happened a few days ago is nothing new.
    I strongly doubt that the rioters were committing their mayhem as an expression of any political ideology. Their ideology is criminality, and they take advantage of any situation that they can exploit.
    I don’t recall any riots when the “Showtime” Lakers won five NBA championships during the 1980’s. Back then, they played at the Fabulous Forum in Inglewood, which was mostly surrounded by huge parking lots, the Hollywood Park racetrack, and residential neighborhoods.
    On the other hand, Staples Center is located in downtown Los Angeles, next to L.A. Live and close to scores of businesses. Those establishments represent many targets of opportunity for these thugs.

    Of course it didn’t work out! The stipends public high school pay their coaches won’t even pay for gas.
    From T. Peterson: Then why did he accept the job in the first place?

    @TP Coach Johnston was named HC but some reason it didn’t work out. It’s Coach Salazar’s program now.

    Yes!! Finally Coach Salazar gets his opportunity. He practically built the Schurr HS foundation in the 90’s and 00’s. Those teams were tough, disciplined and played winning football. BG hired a great one. Schurr should’ve hired him a long time ago. Congrats Coach, you deserve it!
    From T. Peterson: Not Clay Johnston as was announced in February?

    Victor Salazar named new BG coach!
    From T. Peterson: Wasn’t Clay Johnston, former LA Marshall head coach, named the HC at Bell Gardens back in February?

    Hey Tank

    Is it possible those people who were destructive to the businesses and property weren’t Laker Fan? Maybe it was soccer Fan, practicing for the World Cup or Galaxy Fan, taking their show on the road to downtown LA to show the world that if if they haven’t won a championship in 6 years they are ready to celebrate like the Euro’s.

    Do you think Tony Pham will change the name of the city when he tells his grand kids that he was stabbed? Being stabbed in San Diego is like being in jail for stealing a pair of socks.

    #8: Is 220,000 dead courtesy of your president enough destruction for you Tank? If not plenty more destruction on the way.

    I can remember when a celebration didn’t include destruction of property and arrests, and when All Lives Mattered.
