I'm not a big hoops fans, but I did hear something yesterday about the Lakers game with the Cavaliers being delayed because of a leaky roof at Staples Center. The roof had been leaking from rain in the area, and a roof company was called to inspect the arena's lid. During the game, water began to drip onto the court, near one of the baskets, delaying the game for 12 minutes late in the first quarter. Turns out, the water was not dripping from the roof, but from wet clothes workers had shed on a catwalk high above the court. In this L.A. Times photo, LeBron James and a referee appear to be watching water drip to the court while Kobe Bryant checks out LeBron's junk. Not that there's anything wrong with that.
