Joshua Saylor was born and raised in West Hills CA. While he grew up a die hard Lakers fan, nothing compares to his love for the Dodgers.
Josh graduated from Cal State Long Beach in 2012, where he not only watched his 49ers make the NCAA tournament for the first time in five years, but also attained a degree in Broadcast Journalism.
While in school, Josh began his radio career as an intern for Homefieldsports and AM 1400 KKZZ in Ventura. He then worked as a producer and co-host of a sports radio show at Kbeach radio on the campus of Cal State Long Beach. Finally, in the summer of 2011 Josh became the intern of the Loose Cannons Radio Show, featured on Fox Sports Radio. After a year helping produce the Loose Cannons, Josh was then hired to be a part of the AM 570 Fox Sports LA Promotions team.
In his free time Josh enjoys sleeping, listening to music, browsing the internet, playing fantasy sports and hanging out with his dog Kobe.
This is going to be an interesting offseason for the Lakers. They have a lot of unanswered questions heading into the offseason.
Here are the three biggest questions facing the Lakers this offseason...
1. Steve Nash
Lets face it Lakers fans, Steve Nash looked old and brittle this season. He just wasn’t the same player we saw in Phoenix the last few years. He is, after all, 39 years old. Even superstars can only defy getting old for so long. It will be interesting to see what the Lakers do about their point guard situation this offseason. Only time will tell, but just to add a little twist here, Chris Paul will be a free agent this offseason. Maybe the Lakers can still get what they wanted after all?
2. Kobe Bryant
Yes, there is no doubt Kobe Bryant is the heart and soul of the Lakers, even at 34 years old. However, he is also making 30 million dollars next season season. If the Lakers want the ability to make more moves, and to bring in better players, Kobe Bryant will take a pay cut. I mean the best player in the NBA, LeBron James, only makes 18 million dollars this season. Why? Because winning is more important than making as much money as possible. We will see this offseason what is more important to Kobe... winning or getting paid. Also, under the new collective bargaining agreement, a player making 30 million a season just doesn’t work anymore.
3. Dwight Howard
Let the drama begin. Will Dwight Howard be back in a Lakers uniform next season? For those Lakers fans saying he should remain loyal to the Lakers... You're forgetting, this a business, and this is Dwight Howard. The guy hasn’t been able to make up his mind about anything since his final year in Orlando. He finally has what he wanted all along. The chance to choose where he wants to play. He didn’t show up for the Lakers in the playoffs this season, and even got himself ejected in the final game against the Spurs, leading to an apparent little feud with Lakers General Manager Mitch Kupchak. It will be interesting to see if any of that has an effect on whether Dwight chooses to stay with the Lakers this offseason.
