Whicker: Terance Mann reaches peak, brings Clippers close to another

It takes about 15 minutes, depending on the line, to ride to the top of the Eiffel Tower. Terance Mann needed less than a second to scale its NBA equivalent. He didn’t do it for the view. He did it at the end of a disjoined Clippers possession late in Wednesday’s fourth quarter, in which the shot clock narrowed the viable options to one. He had to climb Rudy Gobert, the Frenchman known as the Stifle Tower. Nothing much was riding on this. The Western Conference semifinals were tied 2-2, and Kawh...

Clippers coach Tyronn Lue proving as good as advertised at game of adjustments

When the Clippers introduced Tyronn Lue as their next head coach, Steve Ballmer said he especially was impressed by the coach’s reputation as a thinker and a tinkerer. “Not that I’m an expert in game management and Xs and Os,” Ballmer, the Clippers’ owner, said last October. “But all of our staff says Ty sees the game as good or better as anybody that you’ll ever meet, which I think is awesome. “I tell you,” Ballmer added, “Ty’s my kind of guy. He wants to move, move, move, learn new things, abs...

Clippers, down 2-0 to the Utah Jazz, have issues on both ends

SALT LAKE CITY — The last time the Clippers fell behind 2-0 in a playoff series, back on May 25, they made it a point to express their unwavering confidence. Reggie Jackson wore a T-shirt adorned with a happy face to his virtual postgame news conference and signed off that night by saying: “No worries. Remember, no worries!” Clippers Coach Tyronn Lue also was unequivocally calm, shrugging off the Clippers’ first two losses at Staples Center: “I am not worried about it,” he said. “You gotta win f...

Alexander: Clippers’ task is not impossible, but it’s not easy

There are parallels, and there’s one important difference. The Clippers are down 2-0 in a series, again. They’re playing a team with a dynamic player who demands special attention, again. This time they’re coming home after losing two on the road, but those losses were to the team with the NBA’s best regular-season record. They do have a one-game winning streak at Staples Center, and the odds are it’s going to sound like a library compared to what they’ve faced in Salt Lake City this week, which...

Judge tosses lawsuit of man who alleged molestation by Michael Jackson

By ANDREW DALTON LOS ANGELES — A judge on Monday dismissed the lawsuit of a man who alleged that Michael Jackson sexually abused him as a boy. Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge Mark A. Young granted the Jackson estate’s request to dismiss the suit brought in 2013 by Wade Robson. The judge said two Jackson entertainment corporations targeted by the lawsuit had no legal duty to protect Robson from Jackson. “There is no evidence supporting plaintiff’s contention that defendants exercised cont...

The Evolution of Dance from 1950 to 2019: A 7-Decade Joy Ride in 6 Minutes

I see Michael Jackson as a dance style, okay? — Ricardo Walker  Ricardo Walker and his Crew’s The Evolution of Dance, 1950 to 2019 will make you regret every minute spent hugging the wall in middle school. The breakneck, 6-minute romp led by dancer, choreographer, and Michael Jackson impersonator Ricardo Walker, not only showcases the all-male Brazilian crew’s talent, it makes a strong case for throwing yourself into some serious dance floor silliness.

Gruppenchats waren noch nie wichtiger als zu Corona-Zeiten

ImDezember 2020 war Martha krank und nervös. Sie war so nervös, dass es sie krank machte. Nein – sie war krank und das machte sie nervös.  Martha hatte einen Husten und leichtes Fieber. Corona jährte sich zu diesem Zeitpunkt schon bald zum ersten Mal; kein Wunder also, dass sie sich direkt Sorgen machte, sich das Virus eingefangen zu haben. Sie hatte große Angst vor den Folgen dieser Krankheit – aber auch davor, in ihrer WhatsApp-Gruppe dafür verurteilt zu werden.  Früh im letzten Herbst s...

Clippers put Luke Kennard on standby

LOS ANGELES — Before he’d even played an official minute in a Clippers uniform, the team signed fourth-year guard Luke Kennard to a four-year, $64 million contract extension on Dec. 21 (of which $56 million is guaranteed and another $8 million is incentivized). By mid-February, Kennard found himself having a conversation with Clippers Coach Tyronn Lue about platooning with Terance Mann, the multi-positional second-year player. “It can go back and forth,” Lue said Sunday, via Zoom video conferenc...

Clippers hope for reinforcements in rematch with Jazz

The good news for the Clippers is that they won’t have to wait long for another shot at trying to solve the thousand-piece puzzle that is the Utah Jazz. The even better news is that they could have some of their own pieces back on Friday to help do it: Paul George (bone edema right toe) and Nicolas Batum (concussion) have been upgraded to questionable after missing their past seven and two games, respectively. Kawhi Leonard (left lower leg contusion) also is considered questionable, as he was be...

Top 10 Super Bowl halftime shows of all-time

The Weeknd is set to play the halftime show at Super Bowl LV on Sunday afternoon, and if you think we accidentally left a letter out of his name, well, this might not be the halftime show for you. It is, however, a bold, modern choice for the National Football League, picking the alternative R&B artist born Abel Tesfaye to perform when the hometown Tampa Bay Buccaneers play the reigning champions Kansas City Chiefs in the big game. While The Weeknd is a big star, he’s not as huge as the typical ...

What Rhymes with Hamilton?

I can't begin to tell you how much I miss making musicals. It's like someone cut a leg off.The only way I can keep my sanity during the Great Pandemic is to write about musical theatre. If I can't direct musicals for awhile, at least I can still do research and lots of pondering. I spent last year creating some really fun musical theatre novelty books -- a horror anthology, a Christmas carol collection, a children's book (that's not just for kids), and a "civilian's guide." And it was only last...

The Number Ones So Far

In January of 2018, I was killing time at the gym while my kids were finishing up a swimming class, and I was idly clicking around Tom Ewing’s Popular, a writing project that’s been going on for well over a decade. Ewing has been writing funny, incisive, personal reviews of every song ever to hit #1 on the UK charts, and it’s been one of the best things on the internet for a long time. I found myself wondering about #1 singles on the Billboard Hot 100, our own American pop chart. Was there a lis...

Eddie Van Halen, an appreciation: The musician remade the guitar and made it the star

Eddie Van Halen, the Pasadena kid who ruled the late ’70s and ’80s as the era’s premier guitar god, was that rare musician whose signature style and sound you knew the instant you heard it. And like a rock ‘n’ roll god, Van Halen, who died on Tuesday, Oct. 6, at 65, and his music won’t ever really die, not as long as the work he unleashed on stage and in the studio lives on.

15 Essential Black Liberation Jazz Tracks

As black Americans fought for equal rights in the 1960s, music reflected their calls to action. In jazz, that meant sounds that were spiritual, boundary-pushing and celebrated blackness.
