Today Would Have Been NBA Media Day

The Los Angeles Clippers Training Center in Playa Vista and the Toyota Sports Center in El Segundo should have been swarming with TV cameras, beat writers and NBA players suiting up for the first time in months.

Instead, we are left with two empty training facilities, beat writers that are slowly going crazy as they stake out in New York hotel lobbies and NBA players left in limbo on whether there will be a 2011-12 season.

Based on the current negotiations, there’s still a good chance the entire NBA season could be canceled, not only hurting the Laker car flag industry, but costing employees and local downtown businesses millions of dollars.

And for local fans looking for their fall sports fix, there’s always USC football (on probation), UCLA football (they stink) the Los Angeles Kings!
