lakersblog.pngAndrew Kamenetzky and Brian Kamenetzky have left the Lakers Blog for a better gig at ESPNLA.com.

As some of you may already know, today marks our last day at the Los Angeles Times.com. After more than four years spent running and growing Lakers Blog, this was not a decision taken lightly. In the end, though, we felt it best to pursue new opportunities. We’re proud of the work we did at LAT.com and the site we leave behind.
