NBCLA uses wrong Kings logo (Picture)

It’s exciting times for Los Angeles with the city’s sports teams advancing deep into the playoffs. Unfortunately, one local news outlet killed some of the buzz with an embarrassing mistake.

NBC Los Angeles did a story about the Clippers, Lakers, and Kings all involved in playoff series at the same time, but they used the wrong Kings logo. Yup, they used a logo for the NBA’s Sacramento Kings instead of the NHL’s Los Angeles Kings. Their error was called out by the hockey team’s official Twitter account.

I’d talk about how shameful and embarrassing the mistake is if we hadn’t already seen this before. At least they apologized to the Kings for the error and admitted they were “red-faced” over the blunder.

    And it’s the local affiliate of the network broadcasting the NHL.

    Somebody needs to be fired for that.  Ridiculous-really helps the stereotype of the LA sports fan.
