Barely a week or two goes by without one of the major media outlets letting Bonnie-Jill Laflin (right) babble on and on about the Los Angeles Lakers, her employer. You see Ms. Laflin is an executive with the Lakers and is in charge of scouting. She’ll get on the radio with Colin Cowherd and talk basketball for 10 minutes and act like she’s totally committed to the Lakers cause.
Then we start looking around for Kentucky Derby celebrity news and we find Laflin frolicking in Louisville with a variety of famous people such as DeMarcus Cousins and other horse fans. Everyone understands that the Lakers are currently in Dallas getting drilled and trying to explain to the media how they’re down 3-0 to the Mavs, right? And their executive is partying with a guy from the Sacramento Kings?
Makes sense to us.
Maybe Bonnie couldn’t do much to help the team in Dallas. Maybe this team just isn’t that good and is facing a hot team that has been waiting for this moment. Maybe she would have just gotten in the way. But, Jesus, do something. Put the business suit on, make a few comments and inspire.
Instead she’s hanging with some loser from the Kings.
You know, come to think, it really doesn’t make sense to us.
