Los Angeles Kings fire back after Yahoo! calls the NHL team the Lakers; Twitter account is famous for snarky replies and this is not the first case of mistaken ID for the franchise.
The Los Angeles Kings have always had a bit of an inferiority complex. And who could blame them, playing hockey in LA in the shadows of the tradition, glitz and success of the Lakers and Dodgers? To be fair, it's not like their rafters are overflowing with banners.
Still, you’d think their first championship would change that. Nope.
The Kings, currently playing in the Western Conference final in a bid to win a second Stanley Cup after winning their first in 2012, were the subject of a recent Yahoo! Sports poll. See the problem?
At least the Kings were good sports about it. Not only did they have fun with the tweet, but they went all out in reminding the world who the Los Angeles Kings are, and which of LA’s major pro sports franchises is the only champion right now.
