Dallas is...frickin cold in the winter. UGH.

But usually when people group California in, it's Southern. Kind of like Virginia is North, when in fact it's more southern than anything.
Deserts get cold in the winter. That's what deserts do. Same applies to Arizona and Nevada.

LA and OC though see 60 degree weather, maybe high 50's

Mod: deleted. San Jose is as geographically North as Denver and LA as about as backward from GA, VA, AL, etc as you can get

VA although further North IS Part of the South. The South is more cultural than Geographic.

That would be the same as saying that Prince George BC is the same as Sept-Iles Quebec because they are the same latitude.



Responding to the OP. Etem and Bennett are more products of Gretzky's trade to LA than anything.

The trade was about 20 years ago. 20 years= a generation.

The Southern Expansion didn't start until the (around) Mid Nineties.
Those players are about 10-15 years away.
