Alexander: With the Clippers, should we expect the unexpected?

No, I don’t think we can anticipate Kawhi Leonard pulling a Willis Reed, limping out of the tunnel and onto the Staples Center court as a capacity crowd roars Friday night. Clippers coach Ty Lue pretty much ruled that out Thursday when, asked to confirm Leonard’s status for Game 6 against the Utah Jazz, said: “He’s out.” Then again, as screwy a week as it’s been in the NBA, who knows what might happen? Planet Basketball has spun madly out of control the last couple of days. Two coaches fired, an...

Breakfast is best at Nat’s Early Bite Coffee Shop in Woodland Hills

For as long as I can remember, Nat’s Early Bite Coffee Shop on Burbank Boulevard in Sherman Oaks has been — like the nearby Art’s Deli — a weekend destination for old-school cooking, a great place to go for that morning cuppa joe, a classic omelette or scramble, maybe some hot cakes to celebrate losing a pound or two (and gaining it back in the process) — and this being Southern California, a down-home assortment of Mexican dishes. Nothing fancy. Nothing too modern. Just the sort of chow that sa...

How the story of three homeless sisters and their coach became Netflix’s ‘Sisters on Track’

By eliminating substances for both uses, Cobb believes baseball will still have an issue. “Legalize a substance (for improved grip...

AP says it will no longer name suspects in minor crime stories

By David Bauder | Associated Press NEW YORK — The Associated Press said Tuesday it will no longer run the names of people charged with minor crimes, out of concern that such stories can have a long, damaging afterlife on the internet that can make it hard for individuals to move on with their lives.

Evidence suggests COVID-19 was in US in late 2019
