The L.A. Lazers have given the Valley the boot.
After nine months in Sherman Oaks, the Lazers, of the Major Indoor Soccer League, have packed up and moved their executive offices back to the Forum, where they play their games.
Ron Weinstein, team vice president, said the move was made to accommodate owner Jerry Buss, who wants to become more involved in the day-to-day operations. Buss also owns the Forum, as well as the Lakers and Kings.
