Lakers Left Off AP‘s ‘Top 10 Sports Stories of 2010′

Lakers vs. Celtics. An historical rivalry renewed. Dramatic seven game series. Improbable fourth quarter comeback in the final game. Kobe Bryant is a total goat, going 6 for 24. Crazy-ass Ron Artest arguably the hero of the game! Kobe tops Shaq in rings, and calls him out on national television! Easily one of the best sports stories of the year, no?

Not if you’re the Associated Press. The AP just came out with its list of the top 10 sports stories of the year, and the Lakers are nowhere on it. Tiger Woods and his wandering penis made the cut, of course. So did LeBron James and his Decision. NASCAR’s Jimmy Johnson was on there too. So, um, yeah.

In fairness the AP didn’t just arbitrarily choose the list. Stories were voted on by 176 people from AP affiliate news organizations across the U.S.

LA did have one story on the list: the death of UCLA coaching great John Wooden was number 10.
