Stockton Kings GM Anthony McClish Laid Off

STOCKTON (CBS13) — The Kings just hired a new general manager, but now they also need a new general manager. Monte McNair took the basketball operations reigns for the Kings last week, but on Tuesday, Stockton Kings GM Anthony McClish lost his job in another round of layoffs. McClish had been with the team since 2013. The Kings had already furloughed a number of their basketball staffers until November. Last week, McNair committed to Sacramento Kings head coach Luke Walton, saying he is looking ...

NBA commissioner Adam Silver says rapid testing will be critical to getting fans back in arenas

LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. — By many measures, the NBA bubble has been a success: Players and staff living on the Disney campus have not tested positive for COVID-19, and the season is nearly complete — an outcome Adam Silver once thought was a “pipe dream” in the middle of a pandemic. All the same, the NBA would prefer not to do it again. “I’m hoping ideally we would not return to a bubble environment,” the NBA commissioner said, “but it’s something we’re going to have to continue looking at.” Spea...

Alexander: For Lakers/Dodgers fans, it’s all about multitasking

Major League Baseball announced Wednesday afternoon that 11,000 tickets per game, appropriately socially distanced, will be sold for NL Championship Series and World Series games in Arlington, Texas, at Globe Life Field or Park or whatever their new facility is called these days. That is not going to help at this early point of baseball’s postseason. And it’s particularly not going to do much for the city of Los Angeles, which if all goes well could wind up with a double bonanza but no way to en...

Comment on extra-flaky pie crust by deb

In reply to Chelsea. It will but it’s less forgiving of extra flour, because it already has enough. It’s better to, say, split the difference a little and use a little less flour in it so you can freely sprinkle it to create layers.

Rams’ defense will learn from failure, Brandon Staley says

THOUSAND OAKS — On to the Giants. But first, Brandon Staley had to relive the end of the Rams’ game against the Bills in Buffalo on Sunday. “It’s certainly a heartbreaker,” the Rams’ defensive coordinator said Wednesday. “It was one of those two minutes that we’ll never forget.” Not that they want to forget a sequence that gave them as many lessons, and encouraging signs, as disappointments. After holding the Dallas Cowboys to 17 points and the Philadelphia Eagles to 19, they gave up too many lo...

Justin Herbert sees constant pressure behind Chargers’ thin O-line

COSTA MESA — Many of Justin Herbert’s remarkable throws to start his career have stood out because of his ability to escape defenders. The Chargers’ rookie quarterback hasn’t been rattled by pressure and his mobility and instincts have allowed him to keep his eyes downfield to make impressive throws, one being the touchdown dart he completed to Keenan Allen last week against the Carolina Panthers. Herbert got away from Panthers pass rusher Brian Burns on the touchdown highlight, but Burns hit hi...

Dodgers add Terrance Gore and Keibert Ruiz to roster for Wild Card Series, leave off Gavin Lux and Dylan Floro

LOS ANGELES — If anyone understands the value of a stolen base at a critical time in the postseason, it is Dave Roberts. The Dodgers announced their 28-man roster for the best-of-three Wild Card Series on Wednesday and it includes a third catcher (rookie Keibert Ruiz) and pinch-running specialist Terrance Gore. Gore was a non-roster invitee to spring training and spent most of the summer at the Dodgers’ alternate training site. He did get into two games with the Dodgers as a pinch-runner but did...

Prop. 16 won’t end injustice, but it will jeopardize equality under the law

One of the most remarkable aspects of the American story is how, over generations, our nation has fought to end racial discrimination in public life and to ensure that all Americans enjoy constitutional guarantees of equal protection before the law. This is why it’s alarming that so many activists and government officials are rushing to reinstitute racial preferences in pursuit of a vague commitment to “social justice” and “equity.” Americans who value Constitutional protections should resist th...

Holly Mitchell for Los Angeles County supervisor

With longtime Los Angeles County Supervisor Mark Ridley-Thomas termed out, voters in the 2nd Supervisorial district have their pick of two highly experienced candidates to represent them on the Board of Supervisors. Ultimately, while both candidates share a number of policy stances in common, many of which our editorial board disagrees with, we concluded that the district and county government could be best served by current state Sen. Holly Mitchell. Parsing the differences on the issues betwee...

Heat wave hits, but beware of big surf, rip currents if hitting the beach

A sizable swell rolled into Southern California this week, with waves on Wednesday giving surfers a thrill, but also bringing dangerous conditions to the coast. Waves were in the 4-foot to 6-foot range at south-facing beaches throughout Orange County and 3-foot to 5-foot at some spots along Los Angeles’ coastline, according to forecast site Surfline.com. Surf was even bigger at stand-out spots like the Wedge in Newport Beach, where some waves hit upward of 10 feet, drawing a crowd who watched as...

Fire authorities showcased on Wednesday, Sept. 30, a water-dropping helicopter with a 3,000-gallon capacity that will be available to combat the ever-growing blazes erupting in the region. “This helitanker is a force multiplier,” Orange County Fire Authority Chief Brian Fennessy said at a press conference at the Joint Forces Training Base in Los Alamitos. “This literally is the largest tanked helicopter in the world.” A pilot prepares a CH-47 twin-engine, tandem rotor helicopter during a pre...

49ers Begin Week With Mullens At QB In Place Of Garoppolo

SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) – The San Francisco 49ers began a second straight week of practice with Nick Mullens at quarterback in place of injured starter Jimmy Garoppolo. Garoppolo missed practice Wednesday with a sprained ankle suffered in Week 2 and his status for Sunday night’s game against Philadelphia remains in doubt. Coach Kyle Shanahan said Garoppolo will have to show in practice that he’s healthy enough to avoid the pass rush in order to play Sunday. “Anytime you’re dealing with an ankle...

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) – Marcus Semien and Khris Davis homered early and the Oakland Athletics held off José Abreu and the Chicago White Sox in the late innings for a 5-3 win Wednesday that sent their AL playoff series to a deciding Game 3.
