Over the past 15 months, Lakers Nation has grown tremendously from just a small Twitter account (@LakersNation) to a site that has almost 90,000 Fans on Facebook (Facebook.com/LakersNation) and 23,000 Followers on Twitter.
We have created partnerships with accredited newspapers like the Orange County Register and established basketball publications like Dime Magazine and have been mentioned in numerous Laker Blogs from the LA Times to ESPN and Yahoo, even the Huffington Post!
None of this would have ever happened if it wasn't for the hard work by our group of volunteer writers, artists, podcasters and editorial staff. As we continue to grow, we are continously looking for the best of the best to help grow our site into the No. 1 Sports Blog in the world.
So, check these open positions out and let me know if you'd like to volunteer by emailing me at
