What passes for witty writing in Los Angeles

UPDATE: The LA Times pulled the post, then put it back with this note: [For the record: An earlier version of this post contained an inappropriate comment about Pierce relating to an incident in 2000 in which he was stabbed repeatedly. That comment has been removed.]

From a Los Angeles Times guide to hating the Celtics:

By the way, Pierce's idea of a fun night is going clubbing and getting stabbed. Good times!

It's as if it was never posted

Only it was. Here's a copy from Google's cache, which, of course, will eventually go away:

No. 34, Paul Pierce: He is their best scorer and a load for anyone to guard, including Ron Artest. But the Celtics' captain flops more than a large-mouthed bass taking his last breath while dangling from a fishing line at the end of a pier. Every time Pierce shoots, he acts like he's been hit by a train. Usually, he hasn't been touched. Two years ago, he fell during the Finals against the Lakers and went off in a wheelchair. An actual wheelchair! Five minutes later, he was dropping three-pointers all over TD Banknorth Garden. He actually came back into the game with the music from "Rocky" blaring over the public-address system. Yo, Paulie, that was such a bad con job, Sylvester Stallone is a better actor than your are. By the way, Pierce's idea of a fun night is going clubbing and getting stabbed. Good times! If you'll be seeing him for the first time, you'll hate him before the first quarter of Game 1 is even close to over, guaranteed. And by the way, Pablo, your headband is usually crooked.

Inappropriate and dumb.

How is reminding us that Pierce got stabbed 11 times and survived anything but a positive for the C's?

It's like making fun of Lance Armstrong for recovering from cancer and winning tons of Tour de Frances.

I don't get it. Oh, right, we're talking about LA where glitz and glamour is more important than strength and heart.
