I was at the Laker game the other night and someone asked me why LAist doesn't hype the Laker Girls.

Someone overheard the question and asked how LAist could seriously consider itself a reliable place to read, see, and hear about LA if we refused to properly cover the hottest cheerleaders in hoops.

Then someone else asked for more Florida sucks articles.

Here are the Laker Girls in Vegas preceeded by the NBA mascots having a slam dunk competition.
