Whicker: Davis, Lakers welcome the Denver Nuggets to a higher altitude

Let’s be clear. No team in the NBA is immune from the aftereffects of Anthony Davis. It’s just that the Denver Nuggets are in the high-risk pool. The Lakers rolled to a 126-114 Game 1 victory in the Western Conference Finals on Friday. This prompted TNT’s Charles Barkley to get out the kitchen broom and start sweeping the studio floor. Sir Charles has been a little off on his assessments — i.e., he’s only even-money to tell you this is September — and you would expect the vibe of this series to ...

Non-traditional polling sites are popping up across the US in a scramble to help voters safely cast their ballots in person

Early voters cast their ballots at the Frank P. Zeidler Municipal Building on Wednesday March 18, 2020, in Milwaukee AP Photo/Morry Gash The coronavirus pandemic has brought on a number of challenges for in-person voting in the US such as absent poll workers, long lines, and scaled-back voter registration drives. But communities across the US are getting creative, turning a number of local venues into voting sites for registered voters who seek to cast their ballot in person.  From sports ...

Los Angeles-Orange County’s 16.8% joblessness rate highest in U.S.

Los Angeles and Orange counties in July had the highest unemployment rate among the nation’s largest metropolitan areas as stiff pandemic limitations throttled businesses. My trusty spreadsheet, filled with a Bureau of Labor Statistics ranking of 51 regions with 1 million or more residents, tells me L.A.-O.C.’s 16.8% joblessness ranked No. 1 ahead of 16.4% in New York and Las Vegas. All three cities depend heavily on tourism, an industry hard-hit by pandemic-related lockdowns. Boston at 15.5% wa...

Alexander: Candace Parker, superstar and mentor

Bubble life in this summer of Pandemic Sports can lead to some weird experiences. As Candace Parker of the Sparks noted Tuesday, you wind up bumping into people you wouldn’t have dreamed of seeing under ordinary circumstances. “I was walking in the lobby of the hotel yesterday and I saw a ref swimming laps in the pool,” Parker said, half incredulously, on a Zoom conference Tuesday from the WNBA’s Bradenton, Fla. bubble. “To me, I think it’s just weird to see everybody as human beings (instead of...

Why the songs remain the same on this LA radio station

It’s a tough job programming to a mass audience. Case in point: K-SURF (1260 AM, 105.1 HD2), also known as LA Oldies. The station started playing the early days of rock ‘n’ roll, focusing primarily on the years of 1955-1970. And listeners were happy. Then the station added more songs from the 1970s. In general, most listeners remained happy, though a few grumbled about all the new songs being added. But new listeners found the station and overall it worked well. Later, songs from the 1980s start...

People at theme parks and elsewhere need COVID rules, not recommendations

So is it safe for kids to go trick-or-treating this Halloween or not? You can’t blame parents for being confused, given the wishy-washy messages they have heard from some officials. Public health officers in Los Angeles County earlier this month issued an order banning trick or treating in California’s largest county. But after the county’s sheriff announced that his deputies would not enforce the order, the county backtracked and declared that trick-or-treating was simply “not recommended” inst...

Lakers bigs don’t play but stay supportive from bench

LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. — He wasn’t introduced in the starting lineup on Saturday night, but for every Lakers starter, JaVale McGee was waiting. He stood at the end of the team line, greeting each of them with individualized handshakes. When he sat on the bench, he and Dwight Howard were the loudest voices crying out and waiving their arms with adolescent energy. When rookie Talen Horton-Tucker scored in the first half, both of the Lakers’ centers sprung up in celebration. Even though neither of ...

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. Deutsche Bank analysts upgraded Disney stock on the strength of the Disney+ streaming service despite continuing struggles in the company’s theme park and consumer products division. “At this point, we are assuming that FY21 (beginning 10/1/20) will be another ‘lost year’” for Disney’s theme parks and consumer products divi...

LAFC, Galaxy clash again in round three of El Trafico

In the perfect scenario, every El Trafico series would be like this. One team, in this case LAFC, wins the first meeting. The next game, the Galaxy prevailed, setting the stage for a winner-take-all third meeting. Round three is set for Sunday night at Dignity Health Sports Park in Carson (7:30 p.m., Spectrum SportsNet). “Obviously it always means a lot,” LAFC coach Bob Bradley said. “It has so much importance to our fans.

LAFC hosts San Jose looking to snap two-game skid

The Los Angeles Football Club has made it a habit of avoiding losing streaks in its short history. In the inaugural 2018 season, LAFC lost consecutive games just twice. Last season, en route to a 72-point season, the club lost just four games, leaving no room for consecutive losses. Amid the stopping and starting of the 2020 season, LAFC finds itself Wednesday night trying to put an end to a two-game skid and avoid its first three-game losing streak. LAFC (2-2-3, 9 points) hosts San Jose (2-2-2,...

Is Harry Potter telling the future for the theme park business?

If you want to understand what’s happening in the theme park industry right now, just look back a decade or so. In 2009, attendance was tanking at the Universal Orlando Resort — down more than 10 percent over the year before, according to the Themed Entertainment Association/AECOM Theme Index report. The economy was just beginning to recover from the Great Recession, but other parks were seeing modest increases that year, including big gains at Disneyland.

Galaxy rally back to knock off San Jose in a Cali Clasico thriller

When the Milwaukee Bucks walked out, they didn’t imagine how wide their protest would spread

LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. — The Milwaukee Bucks’ protest that shook the sports world arrived mere minutes before the team’s scheduled 1 p.m. tip against the Orlando Magic. For many of them, the sweat they’d worked up from pregame warm-ups was still on their skin. Forward Wesley Matthews was changing in his game shorts. But in that locker room, which Bucks coach Mike Budenholzer called “a sacred place,” something happened to change the course of the afternoon: George Hill told the team he had been t...

Galaxy turning attention back to playing after an emotional week

Galaxy midfielder Sebastian Lletget described Wednesday as an “emotional day.” Lletget and the Galaxy were the final game of the day scheduled, but the focus was soon switched away from the field as four of the previous five games on the schedule were postponed as players across the league protested the unjust shooting of Jacob Blake in Wisconsin. The Galaxy and Seattle then followed suit and chose not to play. “For us, our conversations started happening later in the day,” Lletget said. “Becaus...
