Decorated Soldier Reunited With Family During Rose Parade
PASADENA (CBSLA.com) — A decorated soldier originally from Michigan was reunited with his family Tuesday in a heartwarming moment captured by cameras and witnessed by millions during the 124th Tournament of Roses Parade. Army Sgt. First Class Eric Pazz was riding on the “Canines of Courage” float sponsored by Natural Balance Pet Foods Tuesday when he was reunited with his wife Miriam and four-year-old son, Eric Jr. Both were watching the parade from the grandstands after winning seats. They were under the impression that 32-year-old Pazz, who was deployed, was still in Afghanistan. Video of the parade shows the heartwarming scene as Eric Jr. runs toward his father and the announcer says, “he sees Daddy. he had no idea.” After the reunion, his family joined him on the float for the remainder of the parade.

BROOKLYN (CBSLA.com) — Former Laker and current Indiana Pacers assistant coach Brian Shaw is being considered for the head coach position of the Brooklyn Nets, NBA coaching sources have told ESPN’s Marc Stein and Chris Broussard.

The Nets are looking to replace P.J. Carlesimo, despite a 49-33 record and a playoff berth.

Now that the Pacers were eliminated by the Miami Heat in Game 7 on Monday night, the Nets are expected to seek permission to interview Shaw.

Brooklyn has also requested permission to interview Memphis’ Lionel Hollins, and have contacted former Magic head coach Jeff Van Gundy, according to ESPN.

Shaw, who most recent played in 2003 with the Lakers, was a favorite among many Laker fans for the head coaching position prior to the hiring of Mike Brown, and again before the hiring of Mike D’Antoni.

Shaw played in 943 games in his career. He won three NBA championships as a player in Los Angeles, and two more as an assistant coach.
