    Did they lift the "knowledge of the NBA is helpful" line out of their want ad for a new G.M?

    This job could be a stepping stone to coach or GM, the rate things are going ...

    I interviewed for the Lakers version of this job last summer. They offered $13 per hour - it must be an adventure to work for $13 per hour and live in L.A.

    That's about $25,000 a year. I'm sure there's some nice places in Compton, if you can find 3 roommates.

    Indeed it is. That makes me wonder what the MLS teams will pay the people they're hiring for content-producing gigs for their Web sites.

    $25,000 in Los Angeles can get you a place in certain parts of Redondo Beach, Long Beach, San Pedro, etc. As long as you have roommates and minimal debt, that is. Defer your student loans, get Mom and Dad to pay for car insurance, and never go out.

    Well, seeing what this job is offering I now know why I never received a reply. My requested salary range was about double what they were offering. The MLS positions actually pay a good, livable wage, around $42,000. Apparently the NBA is like MLB in its meager wages for staff.

    Bad owner, bad organization, bad team, probably not a good job.

    I am sure Donald Sterling can find you a nice place to live if you're making $25,000 a year....
