Will California Lax ever be on par with New York lacrosse ?

Lacrosse is exploding all across the country and probably no where more then in Cali…But that leaves the question..Will the level of lacrosse in California ever be on par with the great level in New york, Upstate, Long Island, North of NYC ?

No more Orlando Titans for the NLL

Due to financial problems the Orlando Titans have decided to take off the 2011 season and try and make it back for the 2012 year.  All Titans players such as the NLL’s reigning MVP Casey Powell and reigning goaltender of the year Matt Vinc will be dispersed in a league draft.  The Colorado Mammoth has the first pick this upcoming year.

Will lacrosse ever have a LEBRON JAMES ? ( BTW NJ is my pick)

   Whether you are a lacrosse fan, basketball fan, cricket fan, or even a tiddly-winks fan, you know what’s happening with Lebron James and his decision to go to the New Jersey Nets, New York Knicks, Chicago Bulls, Clippers,Heat and of course to stay in Cleveland with the Cavaliers.   But where Lebron goes is so beaten down now  that no one really cares, but it lead me to think…  Will lacrosse,  the all so sweet sport of lax, ever have an athlete with the power, monies, global reach of a Lebron James ?

       I say  yes.  You can see the power of lacrosse building as we speak, the fact that I’m writing a blog about it is proof alone, but also lacrosse has a lot of the panache that basketball has.   Every coach or player I have ever know have always drawn the comparison of hoops to lax, and I can see at the current growth rate that lax at some point will be a universal sport ( It has already started).   It may take  10, 25, maybe 50 years  but I think lacrosse will have its mega world Super Star and with their own Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, etc account , maybe Casey Powell’s grandson will be making his announcement on ESPN 43  where he will be playing the next 5 years for 100mill…A year.   BTW  I think Lebron goes to NJ in a surprise move   …But what do I know, I’m only from NJ !
