Dwight Howard brings energy to Lakers’ bench, while trying to grind out the bubble time

LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. >> On a recent evening as the clouds had lifted over the lake in the center of the Coronado Springs Resort, Dwight Howard went biking on an off-night. Behind him trailed his 6-year-old son, David, riding with the help of training wheels. It was a temperate evening, and the water reflected a brilliant Florida sunset. But the scene belied the difficulty of Howard’s situation, partly because the father and son were riding in a loop. While Howard has been an energetic presence...

Whicker: Nuggets make history, Clippers flunk chemistry

Fourteen months after it was declared, the Basketball Battle of L.A. is over. The Lakers won without firing a shot. It was easier to watch the Clippers miss theirs. Sure, it was conceivable that the Clippers wouldn’t win the NBA title, since they still haven’t been to the Western Conference Finals in 50 years of occasionally trying. What nobody suspected is that Kawhi Leonard and Paul George, the Clippers’ prize signings of July 2019, would be spectators at their own demise. The Clippers’ house ...

COVID America, 6 months in: Disarray, dismay, disconnect

For years, Erin Whitehead has been a committed fan of the crisis-fueled medical drama “Grey’s Anatomy.” She has watched its doctors handle all manner of upheaval inside their put-upon hospital — terrifying diseases, destructive weather, bombs, mass shootings, mental illness, uncertainty, grief. Today, she turns to the emotionally draining show as a salve, something to take her mind off of … well, off of everything this jumbled year has delivered to her nation, to her society, to her front door. ...

The first physical signs that inbreeding may be taking a toll on the imperiled cougar population of the Santa Monica Mountains were disclosed by National Park Service biologists Wednesday, Sept. 9. For years, wildlife experts have warned that the limited gene pool of mountain lions in the Santa Monica and Santa Ana Mountains created the likelihood of localized extinction unless outside cats were introduced into the populations.

Disney theme parks face another ‘lost year’ in 2021, analysts forecast

Disney’s theme parks face another “lost year” in 2021 after a nearly $10 billion decline in revenue in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, according to a new analysts’ report.

Analysis: Rams offense position-by-position breakdown for 2020

For the Rams to be Super Bowl contenders again, they must reverse last year’s decline in the offense, which saw the running game hobbled, the line battered and Sean McVay’s magic figured out by opposing coaches. Do they have the tools to do it? Probably. This season? That’s the real question. It will require fast contributions from their prize rookie running back, improvement from the young guards, and ingenuity from McVay and new offensive coordinator and quarterback whisperer Kevin O’Connell. ...

Galaxy turn in big second half to defeat LAFC in third El Trafico meeting

CARSON >> Both LAFC and the Galaxy experienced the highs and lows of soccer in the first half of Sunday’s third El Trafico meeting.

On the other side, the Galaxy went into halftime, had to feel lucky for the game to be scoreless. However, that all changed early in the second half as the Galaxy (4-3-2, 14 points) put forth...
