    Great interview with Tim Brown of Yahoo Sports at The Big Lead, http://thebiglead.com/index.php/2012/02/24/an-interview-with-tim-brown-of-yahoo-sports/.

    Being from another department, I had worked with him on a couple of projects and had always wondered what it was like for him when he left his 'dream job' to go to Yahoo. Both Tim and Dave were great to work.

    Loved the Jim Murray story and wonder how many other young LAT sports guys got to shuttle Murray around.

    Found the story from laobserved.com.

    Tim Brown is one of the more underrated cogs in the Yahoo journalism machine. He's overshadowed by Passan, but he's outstanding in his own right.

    Make sure you read the column Tim wrote recently about his brother.


    I know he's know for baseball, but as a Lakers fan, I loved the year he covered the Purple and Gold.

    Brown's gamers with the Lakers were so good. I think he was the beat guy from 01-04, after Kawakami was there for the 2000 title. I can still remember the gamer he wrote after Game 5 of the first round series in 2003 against the Lakers. I read it at my paper and we received stories from the Times and Brown's came on a tight deadline. I couldn't believe he'd crafted it so quickly and so perfectly.

    Managed to find it:
