It really is the only way he’ll get to hoist the Stanley Cup.

A stunning turn of events saw Suns guard Steve Nash get dealt to the L.A. Lakers earlier today after the two teams agreed to a sign-and-trade deal for the 38-year-old point guard.  The Raptors, Mavs and Knicks had all been rumored destinations of Nash, who turned down a bigger payday with the aforementioned trio of teams in order to have a legitimate shot at a title with the Kobe Bryant led Lakers.

Now, you’d think that a 24-hour news station based out of Toronto would be on top of things when it came to trade news involving the Canadian-born Nash, and they would for sure know the difference between the Lakers and Kings, seeing that they’re a bunch of wacky, hockey obsessed Canucks residing north of the 49th parallel.  You’d think that, but you’d be wrong, as you can see by the above graphic that showed up on CP24, an all news station out of Toronto.

Perhaps it was an honest mistake made by a graphics editor who still had last month’s Kings Stanley Cup victory on the brain, but seeing that Nash is the most prominent Canadian player in the NBA, you’d think that even a graphics guy with a minimal amount of sports knowledge would know the Kings aren’t the Lakers and vice-versa, and which team Nash would be traded to.  Still, I fault this person a lot less than I do the person who put up the Sacramento Kings logo instead of the L.A. Kings logo on-air during the sports segment  of a Los Angeles television station’s evening news broadcast.

Now that…that’s just shoddy work right there.
