    'Holdbacks' have become common in high school sports
    Mentioned in a profile on the Chatsworth Sierra Canyon basketball team this month was a note that the star freshman player, 6-foot-8 Cody Riley, is 16 years old. That provoked outrage from several readers. "I find it laughable and unfortunately...
  • For Howard, Houston is Dwight years apart from Lakers

    For Howard, Houston is Dwight years apart from Lakers
    It was a good night for Lakers fans. Lots of venting. Dwight Howard was in town. He hadn't been back here for a game against the Lakers since he sinned against the 11th Commandment. Thou Shalt Not Leave the Lakers. He not only left, but says now...
  • Clippers' new measuring stick is themselves, not the Lakers

    Clippers' new measuring stick is themselves, not the Lakers
    Less than a month ago, there were many reasons to highlight Friday's schedule on the NBA calendar and look forward to the Lakers facing the Clippers. Kobe Bryant was nearing full stride after returning from an Achilles' tendon injury. Chris Paul was his...
  • Why Lakers' hiring of Mike D'Antoni is bad, in 7 seconds or less

    Why Lakers' hiring of Mike D'Antoni is bad, in 7 seconds or less
    The new Lakers coach famously wants his players to shoot in seven seconds or less. I’m not going to require that long to list the reasons that hiring Mike D'Antoni was yet another Buss blunder. He's never taken a team to an NBA Finals. He has a...
  • Aaron Craft is Ohio State's fearless leader

    Aaron Craft is Ohio State's fearless leader
    He not only made the winning pass, he ordered the winning basket. That is how Aaron Craft rolls, either into your heart or under your skin, his tiny hands rummaging deep into the pockets of March, his rosy cheeks squarely in America's face. With two...
  • Wichita State scores an outsized victory over La Salle, 72-58

    Wichita State scores an outsized victory over La Salle, 72-58
    You could see it was going to be a problem for La Salle from the opening tip. The basket on both ends of Staples Center was 10 feet from the floor and Wichita State players were always closer to it. The four-guard rotation that got La Salle to the...
  • Miami Heat faces a back-to-back barrier in NBA Finals

    Miami Heat faces a back-to-back barrier in NBA Finals
    You mean we have to do it again? Winning a second consecutive NBA title with the same core group of players can be like dealing with two children: It isn't twice as hard, it's exponentially more tiring and headache-inducing than handling the first....
  • Clippers center DeAndre Jordan learns by the seat of his pants

    Clippers center DeAndre Jordan learns by the seat of his pants
    The last Clippers fans saw of DeAndre Jordan, he was making his usual fourth-quarter playoff moves. Turning his head to watch teammates run up the court. Readjusting in his seat whenever the urge struck. Standing up during timeouts. It's tough to earn...
  • Blame starts at top for Lakers' bungling of Phil Jackson's return

    Blame starts at top for Lakers' bungling of Phil Jackson's return
    In the final minutes of practice Monday, the Lakers were playing a pickup game. The rich and gifted athletes were running up and down the gym floor like chaotic children on a playground, gunning and fouling and arguing. They were playing like a team...
  • Interim Coach Bernie Bickerstaff tries to keep it simple for Lakers

    Interim Coach Bernie Bickerstaff tries to keep it simple for Lakers
    He was asked and so he served, but Bernie Bickerstaff gave the distinct impression he will be happy when his term as the Lakers' interim coach ends and he can go back to being a low-profile assistant coach with nothing more pressing to worry about than...
  • Clippers go from 'other' to 'something else' with Doc Rivers hiring

    Clippers go from 'other' to 'something else' with Doc Rivers hiring
    Chris Paul is one player. Doc Rivers is a culture. Blake Griffin elicits wide-eyed awe. Doc Rivers elicits real expectation. Clipper Nation is built on the unrelenting hope of fans in the shadows. Doc Rivers doesn't settle for hope, and that cloud...
