Lakers’ Danny Green reveals how NBA players cope with mental toll of the bubble

LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. — There are times Danny Green needs support, but there’s times he pushes it away, too. Being inside the NBA bubble at Disney World — away from the family and people you love — for nearly two months has a mental toll which is sometimes difficult to articulate. But nothing quite makes it pour out than after a bad game. Green, 33, has had a few of those since he first got here on July 9.  A veteran of 129 playoff games, Green is used to getting a little cold now and then. But...

Rams’ Taylor Rapp ready to build on highs and lows of rookie year

THOUSAND OAKS — It was his worst moment. It was his finest hour. It’s one of the memories from Taylor Rapp’s rookie year that make the Rams so happy to have him fit and ready for the start of his second year, a status confirmed this week with his return to practice after a knee problem. Late in the 2019 season, the safety made a glaring mistake in coverage that let the San Francisco 49ers’ Jimmy Garoppolo and Emmanuel Sanders connect on a 46-yard third-down pass, setting up the field goal that e...

Garcetti: Missing LA firefighter possibly a victim of ‘violent kidnapping’ in Mexico

A veteran Los Angeles city firefighter who went missing in Baja California last month may have been the victim of a “violent kidnapping,” Mayor Eric Garcetti said Wednesday.

Pandemic fallout: 40-plus retail chains bankrupt

When Archie Jafree heard that Lord & Taylor filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy in early August, he was sad about the fate of the storied retailer with roots dating back to 1824.

New California eviction protections come with a wish — federal funds

Alex Wood accepts Dodgers’ decision to move him to the bullpen

LOS ANGELES — In a perfect world, Alex Wood would have made 25 to 30 starts this season, pitched well enough to stay in the rotation for the Dodgers’ postseason run and re-established his status as a desirable free agent at age 30 this winter. This is far from a perfect world. Instead, a pandemic shortened the season to 60 games and Wood made just one unsteady start before going on the injured list for five weeks with a sore shoulder. He returned this week to find himself shunted once again into...

Hoornstra: Welcome to MLB’s Season of the Reliever

We should have seen it coming. On Aug. 4, Major League Baseball reversed course on a plan to reduce maximum roster sizes from 28 to 26. Ever since, bullpens have remained baseball’s equivalent of a potential “super-spreader event.” The 10-man relief corps is not an uncommon sight. Neither is the lonely reliever sitting in the stands in an attempt to maintain physical distance from his teammates. (Don’t worry. That seat isn’t taken.)
