Champions At Last The Los Angeles Kings had the greatest Stanley Cup Championship run in the history of the National Hockey League.

Anemic scoring and inconsistent play lead to the mid-season firing of Head Coach Terry Murray and the hiring of Darryl Sutter.

The Kings finished the regular season as the eighth and final seed in the Western Conference and finished the post-season as Stanley Cup Champions for the first time in franchise history.

February 2, 2008 was our biggest most consequential game of the year, for our varsity school soccer team. The year could be described by some as a year of rebuilding and upset after upset. Yet to many of us it was a year of growing and building of friendship.

He is a professional American basketball player who plays shooting guard for the Los Angeles Lakers. Bryant enjoyed a successful high school basketball career at Lower Merion High School in Pennsylvania, where he was recognized as the top high school basketball player in the country.

We earned the number one seed in the section and were on our way to our goal. We got to our first game in sections against a much worse Truman/Martin Luther team.

We had a great week of practice looking forward to the second game of the section playoff.

His electrifying senior season earned him accolades such as McDonald's All-American and North Carolina's Mr. Basketball to name a couple (JockBio). In the McDonald's All-American game, Paul was teammates with the teenage phenomenon LeBron James. Chris Paul showed the world what type of player he was going to be, collecting ten assists and playing to get his teammates in position to score (Wake Forest: Men's Basketball). His pass-first approach to the game was special in itself, but what separated him as a superstar was his ability to score, as well as see the floor as arguably the best passer on the floor at all times. CP3 is notorious for manufacturing baskets when there seems to be no holes in the defense.
