A Gasol reunion on the Lakers? Marc says Pau has a ways to go

In a perfect world, the brothers who were once traded for one another might still wind up on the same NBA team. But Marc Gasol doesn’t sound sold that his older brother Pau is definitely ready for a Lakers comeback. The 35-year-old has been practicing with the Lakers for a week now, and Marc Gasol is more concerned with fitting in with his new team than worrying about whether his 40-year-old brother could come back with the Lakers, who might be able to fill their remaining roster spot later in t...

COSTA MESA — Chargers defensive end Joey Bosa tried to inspire his teammates with a halftime speech last week while trailing 28-0 to the New England Patriots at SoFi Stadium.

The Chargers were shut out 45-0 during an embarrassing defeat that could have a lasting impact. “This last game is definitely going to affect some guys,” Bosa said Monday. But Bosa isn’t concerned about rookie lineba...

Voters deserve a chance to repeal nanny state flavored vaping law

The California Legislature this year passed, and the governor signed, one of the most far-reaching and controversial anti-tobacco restrictions in the nation. Senate Bill 793, which bans the sale of most flavored-tobacco products, is a font of good intentions. Like most nanny state measures, it falls short of the mark in terms of protecting public health and upholding basic freedoms. The measure goes into effect on Jan. 1, but its implementation could be delayed. Election officials are now certif...
