Bill Plaschke

Columnist

Bill Plaschke has been a sports columnist for the Los Angeles Times for exactly as long as Kobe Bryant has been a Los Angeles Laker. During those 18 years, Plaschke has been named national sports columnist of the year five times by the Associated Press, which is exactly the number of NBA championship rings won by Bryant, so there. Plaschke has written about virtually every sport for The Times since he joined the staff as a reporter in 1987, gaining a diverse expertise that is sadly often muted during his regular appearances on ESPN’s long-running game show “Around the Horn.”
