"Love pass" by Lost Angeles

   The Los Angeles Lakers have hit hard times.  One story calls the city "Lost Angeles."  (The RHHDAS has "Lost Wages" (Las Vegas) only.)
   During the Los Angeles Lakers-Seattle Supersonics basketball game on TBS, LA guard Kobe Bryant handed a pass to LA center Shaquille O'Neal, who scored the basket.
   "Kobe could have taken that himself," pointed out announcer John Thompson.  "That's a love pass to Shaq."
   Thompson repeated "love pass, love pass, loooove pass" on about three replays.
   The Lakers play my hapless New Jersey Nets tonight, so consider "Lost Angeles" found.

(FWIW, I'm interested in the thesis below.  Anybody else familiar with it, or any other Air Force terminology lists of the 1950s and 1960s?)
