Sunday, Bloody PR Sunday for the Lakers

Let’s see…First the Lakers, completely unable to contain Chris Paul, lose Game 4 to the New Orleans Hornets. Then we hear Kobe Bryant left the arena on crutches after the game, after twisting his ankle. Now the New Orleans Times-Picayune is reporting that Lakers backup Derrick Caracter was arrested in New Orleans for allegedly striking a pregnant waitress. He’s facing multiple charges.

Not good. Especially for a team still recovering from the PR-fallout from Kobe tossing homophobic slurs at a referee a couple of weeks ago. It’s the playoffs guys. Now is not the time to make Kevin Garnett look like a good guy by comparison.
