Even after their first Stanley Cup Win, it looks like the media still doesn’t know what the Los Angeles Kings actually are. News station CP24 in Toronto reported that Steve Nash had been traded to the hockey team from LA and not one of the city’s basketball teams.
The Canadian point guard has actually been traded to the LA Lakers. He will be getting a three-year $27 million deal to play in the City of Angels. Nash’s former team, the Phoenix Suns (not the Phoenix Coyotes) will receive four draft picks in exchange.
This is just another in a long line of media snafus involving the Kings. However, this one is a bit more embarrassing because it involves a city that worships hockey. (However, I have my suspicions that Nash could probably hold his own on skates.)
