Sacramento Gets 9th Pick In NBA Draft Lottery; Detroit Wins Top Spot

Newly selected Basketball Hall of Famer Ben Wallace tapped his fist on the table a few times, then clapped his hands and pointed one finger skyward. After one of the worst seasons in franchise history, Detroit has something to celebrate. The Pistons won the NBA draft lottery on Tuesday night, meaning they’ll have the No. 1 pick on July 29 — and, presumably, the chance to take Oklahoma State guard Cade Cunningham. “We get to add another young player to the restoration process,” Pistons general ma...

Angels’ Phil Gosselin is among the graduating class of ’21

ANAHEIM ― Angels infielder Phil Gosselin promised his mother, Marianne, that he would graduate from college. For 10 years, baseball got in the way. Gosselin was 29 units short of attaining his Bachelor’s Degree in Economics when the Atlanta Braves drafted him out of the University of Virginia in 2010. With a little help from the COVID-19 pandemic, MLB’s College Scholarship Plan for players, and the flexibility of two teams and a handful of professors, Gosselin graduated in May. “I feel like I en...

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...
