Clippers star Kawhi Leonard is speaking up

As the greats do, Kawhi Leonard added a new wrinkle to his game this season. He’s worked on his leadership. Not the do-as-I-do variety. He already exemplified a maniacal, serious work ethic. But this season – with Serge Ibaka’s encouragement – Leonard has made an effort to improve his do-as-I-say approach. It’s debatable how much a void in vocal encouragement had to do with what happened to the Clippers in the NBA bubble, where their championship hopes were torpedoed when they blew a 3-1 series ...

How LeBron James made a major off-court impact in 2020

Shannon Shippe has lived in Akron, Ohio, for all of her 47 years, and in that time, perhaps no one has made a more profound impact on her hometown than LeBron James. For nine years, she’s watched that impact take root in her own home. Her son, Jayden Shippe, was in third grade when the LeBron James Family Foundation promised him a college scholarship if he met academic and community service requirements. Jayden embraced the “earned, not given,” ethos of the I Promise scholars program and became ...

5 key UCLA football players take advantage of extra year of eligibility

Junior quarterback Dorian Thompson-Robinson is among the five UCLA players who have announced that they will stay with the football program for the 2021 season. Several UCLA players are in the process of deciding whether to leave the program (for the NFL Draft, to transfer, or for other reasons) or to stay for another year. It’s more complicated this year since the NCAA granted all players an extra year of eligibility as a result of the pandemic-shortened 2020 season. Thompson-Robinson, who has ...

USC basketball beats Santa Clara in return from long hiatus

LOS ANGELES — Whatever rust there was after its unplanned three-week hiatus, the USC men’s basketball team shook it off quickly enough on Tuesday afternoon. After canceling or postponing four games due to COVID-19 spread on the roster, the Trojans retook the Galen Center court with a businesslike 86-63 victory over Santa Clara. But as USC (5-1) cleaned off some of the cobwebs, it was greeted with a pleasant development: Isaiah Mobley had found his shot during the down time. “He’s getting better....

With hospitals on cusp of ‘crisis care,’ LA County reports 227 coronavirus deaths in one day

Los Angeles County reported 227 deaths related to coronavirus on Tuesday, Dec. 29, an alarming total partially fueled by a backlog of unreported fatalities from the Christmas weekend.

The county also reported 12,979 new cases, for a total of 746,089, with an overall death toll of 9,782. The grim statistics arrived as the state and county extended the re...

USADA finds Olympian Brenda Martinez not at fault for positive drug test

Olympic middle distance runner Brenda Martinez will not face suspension after the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency determined a recent positive drug test was the result of her ingesting a prohibited substance without “fault or negligence,” USADA announced Monday. Martinez, World Championships silver medalist at 800 meters, tested positive for hydrochlorothiazide (HCTZ) as the result of an out-of-competition urine sample she provided on September 10, 2020, according to USADA.  The drug is listed as a “Spe...

Crime in L.A. looked far different during pandemic, LAPD stats show

When Los Angeles went silent in March 2020 amid citywide lockdown orders, so too did reports of many types of crimes. Among the most notable dips, law enforcement officials say, were reports of child abuse and domestic violence. That didn’t mean there were fewer abuse victims. In fact, advocates say, the effect of the COVID-19 pandemic trapping people in their homes meant more victims were sequestered with their abusers for longer periods of time: Researchers with the National Domestic Violence ...

How should the speech of young people be policed?

If you want to live in a free country, and not everybody does, you have to accept that individuals have rights that must be protected from infringement by other people, or by other people acting through the government. One of those rights — number one in the Bill of Rights — is freedom of speech. This doesn’t mean there can be no laws limiting speech, but it does mean that any such laws must have the purpose of protecting the rights of other people. Put another way, there is no right to do harm....

Southern California is epicenter of debate over religious freedom during coronavirus pandemic

One of the fiercest debates during the coronavirus pandemic involved the right of people of faith to congregate. Almost all houses of worship shut down in March when the pandemic began and initial lockdowns were announced. But, by May, when Gov. Gavin Newsom had begun to plot a course for the gradual reopening of other businesses and venues as cases went down, faith leaders began to question why houses of worship were way down the list, grouped with entertainment venues such as movie theaters an...

Rose Bowl move adds spice to California-Texas tug-of-war

The California-Texas rivalry has taken two surprising twists: The Rose Bowl will be played near Dallas while the gap between the two state’s jobless rates reached a 14-year low. Pasadena’s annual college football classic is taking a pandemic-era detour amid California business limitations so the teams can face off in front of fans. This follows a string of Texas “victories” such as key California corporations relocating their headquarters to the Lone Star State not to mention 297,000 more Califo...

Rams get more bad news: WR Cooper Kupp on COVID-19 list

Their quarterback and two leading rushers are hurt. They’ve lost twice in a row with chances to clinch a playoff spot. Other teams that could have helped them out have let them down. For the Rams the past couple of weeks, it seemed everything that could go wrong had gone wrong. Not everything, apparently. One more big thing went wrong Tuesday: The Rams said wide receiver Cooper Kupp has been placed on the NFL’s COVID-19 reserve list. It was unclear immediately if Kupp, the team’s leading receive...
