Whicker: To make a memory, Clippers dissolve a 2015 nightmare

What goes around comes around, even if it takes a six-year orbit, even if most of us thought there would be an NFL team and a four-year college and a Shake Shack on Mars before we would see the Clippers do what they did Friday night. They did not come off the floor to catch and stuff and mount the Utah Jazz in Game 6. They came from under the floor and through six feet of dirt. They trailed by 25 points in the third quarter. They won the second half, 81-48, got 39 points from a second-round draf...

Honoring Juneteenth at Google

Juneteenth, celebrated on June 19, is the oldest commemoration of the ending of slavery in the United States. It marks the day when troops arrived in Galveston, Texas in 1865 to establish Union authority and ensure that all enslaved people were freed — more than two years after the Emancipation Proclamation was signed. The following year, freed persons in Texas organized the first of what became the annual celebration of “Jubilee Day,” now known as Juneteenth. Today, it’s a time for reflection a...

Clippers go forth again without Kawhi Leonard

LOS ANGELES — No news is … no news. Coach Tyronn Lue had nothing new to report about the status of Clippers star Kawhi Leonard before Game 6 on Friday, which the five-time All-Star missed because of a sprained knee he suffered while planting on a drive late in Game 4. “Yeah, he’s fine,” Lue said, before reiterating, as he had said Thursday, that Leonard wouldn’t play Friday. “That’s the only update I have for you.” Lue declined to say whether the Clippers have a sense yet about how long Leonard ...

Joe Maddon still hopeful rested Angels starters can reach higher pitch counts

OAKLAND — When the Angels decided to go with a six-man rotation this season, one of the benefits that Joe Maddon hoped they would realize was that the extra rest would allow their starters to throw more pitches in a game. At this point, that has not been the case. The Angels have had a starter throw 100 pitches seven times, which is tied for 11th among American League teams. The comparison with National League teams isn’t as relevant because NL pitchers sometimes are pulled early because their s...

Revisiting ‘The Happiest Millionaire,’ One of the Weirdest Disney Movies Ever Made

Trading For Jack Eichel Or Seth Jones

Max Bultman of the Athletic answers some fan mail, For Eichel, one of the league’s top scorers under contract for five more years, the cost would be immense. It could mean a deal headlined by Lucas Raymond or Filip Zadina, the No. 6 pick this year, plus either another current top-six NHL forward or another high draft pick or top prospect. It’s possible Eichel’s neck injury changes that price a bit, but the safe assumption is that Buffalo will be able to command a mint for a 24-year-ol...
