Allen Crabbe’s donation saved Price High, which will name its basketball court after the Nets star

By Mark Whicker Allen Crabbe and several Brooklyn Nets will spend their L.A. off-night at Price High School on Wednesday. They’ll watch Price officials rename the basketball court after Crabbe, who led Price to a Division IV CIF State championship in 2010. And they’ll know that without Crabbe, there wouldn’t be a ball to bounce or a report card to ace. Angela Evans, founder of the school and Crabbe’s aunt, says she was ready to close up shop when Crabbe came through with a six-figure donation in...

Alexander: Mike Trout’s Angels deal rewards baseball’s best, and most humble, star

The biggest takeaway from the news of Mike Trout’s impending mega-contract: Humility pays. And maybe there’s a certain amount of karma involved in the idea that the guy who doesn’t try to sell himself, doesn’t make headlines off the field, and doesn’t try to get managers fired or set himself above his teammates just got the richest current contract in pro sports. Those commentators along the Eastern Seaboard who salivated over the idea of Trout becoming a Phillie or a Yankee after his contract r...
