MULLENS -

Mullens native and West Virginia basketball legend Mike D'Antoni has just been hired as the head coach of the Los Angeles Lakers.

The Lakers are one of the most storied and respected sports franchises in the world, and now they have a Wyoming County native as their leader.  This is a great honor for Mike, who is a wonderful guy, a fantastic coach and a proud ambassador for this state.

Once again, when West Virginians get the chance to shine, we burn so bright.
