I think he meant people are more relaxed and chilled in LA. I will tell you this is true. I’m living in the Midwest and people are so uptight here.

Have only visited, so I can't weigh in. But I remember Phil Jackson saying how tightly wound he found the people in L.A.; he blamed the traffic. Which I get. It's bad enough where I live in Atlanta, to the point that I almost never leave a two- or three-mile radius if I can help it. I bought a 600-square foot studio apartment for one-third of what I could have afforded for a house out in the 'burbs, and I jumped on it for one reason: 1.1 miles to work.
But I stayed near LAX one time and drove over to Staples for a game, and unless you've actually been in it, it's almost impossible to describe. It took almost a half hour just to get on the freeway. I remember talking to Mark Heisler one time and he was all excited because he found an affordable new house that was going to cut his commute down to 45 minutes. Think about that: 90 minutes in the car round trip, and that was a significant improvement.
But then you have the beach and the ridiculously amazing weather and all the other amenities of a world-class city, so I guess it's a wash.
