Team leader and senior citizen of the staff. A Cal State Fullerton Alumnus whom we affectionately know as Gramps, Anthony once guarded Ty Lawson in High School. Predictably, it did not go well.

Lives in Boise (wherever that is). Former writer for Standing O Sports as well as LakersNation, Gary is also one of the few writers anywhere to have his own group of “Stans“. Proud owner of possibly the worlds only signed Sasha Vujacic jersey.
Currently studying at the school Anthony built (Cal State Fullerton), Harrison is one of the few people on the planet who is not in love with In N Out Burger.

You can find his work at Silver Screen and Roll.

A UCSB graduate with a degree in PHILosophy. Matt discusses the Lakers daily, but his biggest contribution to the tank has been creating Tankmaster Teddy. Matt was able to intern The Kobe Bryant Academy and therefore has two signed Bryant jerseys, but more importantly, was able to give The Black Mamba a fist bump.

Honi knows nothing about writing or journalism (no wait don’t leave), but he does enjoy sharing his opinion for people to read. He can often be seen writing for his blog, or tweeting way too much. His biggest basketball accomplishment is splashing four three pointers in a game of pickup. Honi may be the only Laker fan to buy a Steve Nash shirsey after his retirement, unironically.
Sheen is a student and a writer, and as you can probably guess by his Twitter name, he is a giant fan of sushi. He once had a Jordan Farmar jersey and has airballed a free throw in Staples Center, so he and Ed Davis have that in common.
As long as Harrison Barnes can get a max contract for playing with Steph Curry and Draymond Green, Dillon will pursue his dream of playing in the NBA, but for now he just writes about it.

Deanna is an Orange County native who majored in Music Industry at Drexel University. While in Philadelphia for college, she stayed up until the wee hours of the morning to watch the Lakers games and her friends thought she was crazy.
