    @ Anonymous: There isn’t any nepotism going on with Alhambra High’s athletic program that I know of, and there hasn’t been any involving the football program in nearly 15 years.
    Maybe you’d be better off starting a discussion about cronyism, since coaching staffs tend to be made up of people who happen to get along with each other.

    Nepotism like the Alhambra school district does their hiring of coaches.

    @ Nepotism: I’m afraid you’re right. The Lakers need to draft (and perhaps trade) wisely and begin working younger players into a lineup that is currently stocked with injury-prone veterans.

    Bronny said just last week that playing with his dad wasn’t a priority. Now, he has declined to workout for eight of the ten teams that wanted to see him. Should we find it strange that the younger James is going to workout for only the Lakers and the Suns, the two teams his daddy eyes for his next contract?

    It’s obvious that the older Lebron is using Phoenix as a way of leveraging his next Laker contract to the sky. If the Lakers do give this over- aged man upwards of $80 million/year, and take his substandard kid in the deal, things will only get worse for the purple and gold.
