Injuries put USC secondary in precarious position entering Arizona game

LOS ANGELES — Injuries have been a common theme of USC’s 2019 season, but no position group has been as hard-hit as the secondary. And that unit could undergo a serious test of its depth against Arizona this week. The Trojans (3-3 overall, 2-1 Pac-12) could potentially be without their three starting cornerbacks against the Wildcats (4-2, 2-1). Nickel corner Greg Johnson has already been ruled out with a shoulder injury, while Isaac Taylor-Stuart (high ankle sprain) and Olaijah Griffin (bulging ...

USC notebook: CB Greg Johnson out with shoulder injury against Arizona

LOS ANGELES — The injury hits keep on coming for the USC secondary. Nickel cornerback Greg Johnson was ruled out for the Trojans’ game on Saturday against Arizona. Head coach Clay Helton said the starting corner suffered a partial dislocation of his shoulder and will need some rehab time before he can play again. USC will likely turn to true freshman Max Williams to start in his place. Johnson is the fourth member of the USC secondary’s starting lineup to miss a game due to injury this season. A...

To Live or Die by Google Search Brings an Escalating Cost

"Where's the best place to hide a body? The second page of a Google search." The gallows humor shows that people rarely look beyond the first few results of a search, but Lee Griffin isn't laughing.

Heisler: What can Lakers pull off after stroke of luck ends their month-long follies?

A.D. or not A.D.? Contrary to widespread reports, there were two players in NBA teams’ dreams at the lottery, not just one, with the fate of New Orleans big man Anthony Davis as much at stake as that of Duke’s Zion Williamson. Here’s how delicately those fates were balanced: Even the Eastern Conference semifinalist Philadelphia 76ers, owning Sacramento’s pick if it landed at No. 1, had a shot at Zion and a new start for their issue-laden young team. Instead, the Kings’ pick came up No. 14. The K...

How potential Knicks' package for Anthony Davis could compare to what Celtics, Lakers offer

Only Pelicans executive VP of Basketball Operations David Griffin - and maybe a select few others close to him - knows exactly what New Orleans wants in a potential Anthony Davis trade. Griffin reiterated on Tuesday that he's committed to trying to keep Davis in New Orleans. Landing the No. 1 overall pick in June gives him another potential selling point for Davis, but the smart money says he will still want to leave New Orleans.

2019 NBA Draft Lottery Winners and Losers: Pelicans, Tanking for the W; Bulls, Knicks take an L

The 2019 NBA Draft Lottery, the most bizarre ritual in the four major American sports, has taken place and the New Orleans Pelicans have won the Zion Williamson sweepstakes. In early February, former Cavs general manager David Griffin tweeted that the Pelicans should drive a hard bargain in trade talks for Anthony Davis because the Pelicans, in Davis, "have a Top 3 most attractive trade asset in the league." At the time, Griffin was an NBATV analyst and SiriusXM host, and was responding to an ES...

LOL: ‘Family Guy’ Honors Adam West with a Tribute Video and Overdue Change to Quahog

It’s been nearly two years since Adam West passed away. The actor became famous for playing Batman on TV and the big screen in the 1960s, but in recent years, he may have been better known for playing a wacky version of himself as the mayor of the Rhode Island city of Quahog on the FOX animated series Family Guy. The writers and crew of the show created by Seth MacFarlane already paid tribute to Adam West shortly after his death, but they wanted to honor him on the show in another way. Watch th...

The difference is that it’s the Clippers, once the local wretches, who have it together, coming off a surprising season and a heroic effort in their first-round playoff loss to the Warriors, with a strong nucleus, a sharp front office, achievable goals and only modest expectations, as in who ever notices ...

Billionaires under fire confront wealth gap at Milken Conference

By Katia Porzecanski, Gillian Tan and Sonali Basak, Bloomberg In Beverly Hills, the chicken Caesar salad costs $25.95. Stephen Schwarzman, with a net worth of $14.3 billion, could buy one for all 329 million people in the U.S. today — and then do so again tomorrow for 222 million of them. The wealth on display this week at the annual Davos-style conference organized by Michael Milken, once of junk-bond fame, is capturing a moment in our age of growing inequality.
