No travel during playoffs gives Lakers, and other NBA teams, more time for recovery

LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. — Most NBA players reside in the upper tiers of frequent fliers. There’s a routine: packing bags, boarding the charter, then maybe breaking out the cards or perhaps putting in headphones and taking a nap. In the NBA lifestyle, flying is something of a chore, something to go through rather than something to enjoy. And late-night flights across the country can leave even well-traveled players reeling from jet lag — which can make or break a practice the next day. In these pl...

California Supreme Court denies O.C. Board of Education petition to reopen campuses

Angels coach Jose Molina puts Roberto Clemente’s number on his back

Angels first base coach Jose Molina was born in Bayamón, Puerto Rico, about 16 miles from Roberto Clemente’s hometown of Carolina. Like others from the Caribbean island, Molina and his brothers looked up to Clemente, Puerto Rico’s first native Hall of Famer. Molina was born three years after Clemente’s death in 1972. His admiration was nourished by the history books. “I knew how Roberto felt helping others,” Molina said. “I hope that always stays in people’s heads because he was so special.” Wed...

The lasting legacy of a baseball icon

Ed Morales writes that on the 19th annual Roberto Clemente day, we should remember that what Clemente did off the field was just as important as what he did on it. He was an activist and civil rights leader, who spoke out about the injustice he saw in the MLB and in America in general. His legacy places him alongside athletes who spoke out during the 1960s and 70s era of America's racial reckoning.

Gavin Lux finally starting to play ‘free and easy’ for Dodgers

Baseball’s history is littered with prospects who never lived up to expectations. Gavin Lux came into this season as hyped as any recent Dodgers prospect, tabbed as the frontrunner for the 2020 National League Rookie of the Year back in spring training and the latest luxury vehicle produced by the Dodgers’ player development assembly line. But he arrived at Summer Camp late and was shunted off to the Dodgers’ alternate training site to find his swing. It wasn’t until the last week of August that...

Southern California’s ‘seriously delinquent’ mortgages at 7-year high

The number of “seriously delinquent” mortgages in Southern California have skyrocketed to levels not seen since 2013, a new study shows. CoreLogic’s monthly tracking of late-paying borrowers shows a steep rise since late winter of very late first mortgages — those “90 days or more past due, including loans in foreclosure.” Stubbornly high unemployment — 15.9% in July in the four-county region — has crushed many family finances and made house payments a challenge. In Los Angeles and Orange counti...

Those steps now include guidance that urge families to refrain from trick-or-treating on Halloween.

Alexander: Pernilla Lindberg was so happy, she didn’t want to leave

The defining memory of Pernilla Lindberg’s first LPGA Tour victory – which also happened to be her first victory in a major, as well as her only Tour triumph to date – was that she was so excited she didn’t want to leave the premises. Lindberg, a career grinder from Sweden who was a two-time All-American at Oklahoma State, won the 2018 ANA Inspiration in Rancho Mirage by outlasting Inbee Park in a playoff that was halted after four holes because of darkness Sunday and carried over to Monday morn...

Chargers WR Mike Williams limited in return to practice

COSTA MESA — Chargers offensive coordinator Shane Steichen was asked twice Wednesday which wide receivers will play more if Mike Williams isn’t able to play for Sunday’s season opener against the Cincinnati Bengals. Steichen offered the same answer. “I think that will play itself out toward the end of the week throughout practice,” Steichen said. Either Steichen wanted to give the safe answer or he didn’t want to repeat himself. Last week, Steichen offered an optimistic response by saying he loo...

Analysis: Rams defense position-by-position breakdown

THOUSAND OAKS — The Rams plan to have a big-play defense in 2020. In the good way. Too few forced turnovers and too many lapses late in the year kept the Rams from turning around games or saving their season in 2019. Legendary defensive coach Wade Phillips wasn’t asked back. Young Brandon Staley was brought in as coordinator. Staley’s success with a unit that aims to be aggressive and creative will depend on Cory Littleton’s and Dante Fowler’s replacements at linebacker, the benefit of full seas...
