Weather troubles

NEW YORK — I won’t be in Detroit to cover tonight’s game against the Pistons. Can’t get there from here. A massive snowstorm hammered the Eastern seaboard Saturday afternoon through this morning. Most flights into and out of the New York area have been canceled. This is a first for me in nine seasons of pro beat reporting. I’ve never missed a game because of weather or travel problems. None of the four beat writers will make it to Detroit. It will be a weird feeling to be here in New York while the game is going on.

    So beat writers don’t travel with the team?

    Will the Lakers be in Detroit? How did their flight leave if yours was canceled?

    Finally, will Spero Dedes make it from South Bend up to Detroit in time for the game?
