Johnny Mountain or Dallas Raines?


Have you ever wondered what your weather man name would be? Every one knows your porn star name is your middle name and the name of the street you live on. But I've always wondered how you go about picking your weather man name. Los Angeles has two of the best in Johnny Mountain (CBS) and Dallas Raines (ABC). Then I ran across this list of the best weatherman names in the country.

Yes, someone actually compiled a list, researching a majority if not all of the local television stations nationwide. It's that important.

Flip Spiceland tops the list, but my personal favorite is No. 2 Storm Field. I can't imagine how much confidence a man with a name like Storm Field has. It's like when Homer Simpson changed his name to Max Power. I'm confident that Storm Field would give Chuck Norris the fight of his life in a cage match.

I've narrowed the list of names for when I become weatherman to the following five:

Larry Tornado
Tropic Snow
Bobby Heatwave
Sleet Cloud
Sonny Skies

And just for the hell of it, how about some weather related athlete names:

Eric Snow
Garth Snow
Sonny Weems
Tim Raines

Lakers get one back

Same two teams, back to back nights, different city, different result. The Lakers got one back from the Golden State Warriors in Oakland after losing at home on Sunday. Once again, the Lakers had to come from behind, took a lead, and then blew a lead. But this time, they got another chance in overtime, and thanks to the hot shooting of Derek Fisher and Sasha Vujacic, as well as some timely plays from Lamar Odom, the Lakers walked away with a victory. And then there's that guy Kobe Bryant who had 30 points 11 rebounds and seven assists in what amounted to a quiet game for him. Kobe started 3-13 and missed 19 of his 30 shots, yet the Lakers still walked away with a victory.

That's a good sign.

What's not a good sign is the fact that Fisher and not Kobe took the potential game winning shot at the end of regulation. So far this season, the Lakers have had Fisher, Walton, and Odom take and miss game winners. Kobe has had a few also. The point is that Kobe should at least have the ball in his hands in the waning seconds. If he's doubled and decides to pass to a wide open shooter ala Jordan to Kerr or Jordan to Paxson, that's fine. Yesterday, Kobe didn't even cut to get open. There was no screen set for him. Don't you want to free up your best player for the final shot? How many times does Lebron not get the final shot for the Cavs? Not too many. If you have to set a quadruple screen for Kobe, then do that. You can take your chances with the other guys but that hasn't worked thus far.

As always, an updated Lakers +/- (through 66 games) Lakers: 49-22 2nd in West

Fisher +311
Kobe +528
Turiaf +93
Odom +385
Gasol +227
Mihm -16
Walton +160
Bynum +236
Farmar +204
Radmanovic +309
Brown -44
Vujacic +85
Crittenton -40
Karl +8
Ariza +5
Mbenga +23

Up next: vs. Charlotte Wednesday 7:30 p.m. PST FSN
