Just 66 days since James and Anthony Davis were on the court, showering in confetti with championship trophies in their arms, they’ll be making their 2020-21 debut on Wednesday night in Phoenix. The Lakers plan to play their two stars, both of whom s...

Alexander: Is the Rose Bowl about to be ejected from the College Football Playoff?

The Tournament of Roses committee confirmed two weeks ago that the game would be played without fans. But that scenario apparently has not ...
