Letters: How does that L.A. basketball scene look now?

At last, our long national nightmare is over! In the span of barely a week, the houses of Buss and Sterling are as they should be.

Once again the Lakers are poised to be contenders and the pretenders are packing for Inglewood. Magic sheds one of the worst contracts in Laker history and the Clippers lose maybe the best player in theirs. The Lakers are calm and collected and Plaschke is running around like Chicken Little because Chris Paul had the nerve to leave $10 million on the table because he has seen behind the curtain and knows there are no championships in sight.

Even the great Jerry West may not be able to turn that ship around. Sleep well America.
