This is a relatively good time to be a fan of LA's secondary teams. While Los Angeles has always been a Laker and Dodger city, some feel it may fast becoming a Clipper and Angel city. The Lakers continue to flounder, after losing 110-101 to the Clippers, dangerously falling out of the 8th playoff position.

While the Dodgers may wind up winning the West, Arte Moreno's Los Angeles of Anaheim caught the attention of the New York Times, which loves to make fun of LA. Columnist Selena Roberts was making light of Moreno's aggressive push to make LA an Angel town, and how the Dodgers have gone on the defensive putting up "This is LA Baseball" billboards everywhere. Mmm...what do you mean by that, Frank McCourt?

So is LA really going to be a Clipper and Angel town? Fat chance.
