It’s exciting times for Los Angeles with the city’s sports teams advancing deep into the playoffs. Unfortunately, one local news outlet killed some of the buzz with an embarrassing mistake.

NBC Los Angeles did a story about the Clippers, Lakers, and Kings all involved in playoff series at the same time, but they used the wrong Kings logo. Yup, they used a logo for the NBA’s Sacramento Kings instead of the NHL’s Los Angeles Kings. Their error was called out by the hockey team’s official Twitter account.

I’d talk about how shameful and embarrassing the mistake is if we hadn’t already seen this before. At least they apologized to the Kings for the error and admitted they were “red-faced” over the blunder.

  • And you worded it wrong: "Yup, they used a logo for the NBA’s Sacramento Kings instead of the NHL’s Los Angeles Kings." Should be the other way around. Nevermind, not enough coffee yet this morning.
  • Why should it be the other way around?
  • Why should it be the other way around?
  • some one didnt care
  • I could do his job better...
  • They also used the incorrect LA Clippers logo -- it's the old one.
  • Who cares..............it's b-ball and hockey.
  • The LA Clippers logo is also wrong.
  • Nothing wrong with the Clippers Logo...it's the same one they use on their website!
  • Too funny, but thats what happens when you have multiple teams sharing the same name. It doesnt really matter if its another sport. ITS THE SAME NAME!
  • Would it kill these guys to put up a picture of the *correct* logo so we can see what they're talking about? Most of us east of the Mississippi are not that big on either one, so it ain't instant recognition to everyone.
