Lakers brace for the ‘bubble,’ but say they’re prepared

Every season has its ups and downs, its wild twists and its doldrums. But usually, Danny Green said, you can see where you’re going. The Lakers have run the gamut this year on unprecedented events beyond their control: a tense political situation in China; dealing with the deaths of Kobe and Gianna Bryant; and now trying to restart a stalled season in a pandemic. In one sense, Green thinks, the team that can best handle the unforeseen may have the best shot at winning a championship in this camp...

Lakers assistant Lionel Hollins won’t travel to Orlando due to health concerns

As coronavirus cases have continued to rise throughout the last two weeks, the NBA has massaged the messaging behind its Disney World campus: With a controlled environment, aggressive testing and monitoring and limited personnel, the so-called bubble where the league is staging its restart could potentially be safer than the world around it. But there are some risks the NBA is less willing to take, which became clearer Friday when Yahoo Sports was first to report Lakers assistant Lionel Hollins ...

Texas Gov. Moves to Stop COVID-19 but It’s Already Out of Control

Democratic officials angry at Texas Gov. Greg Abbott’s handling of surging coronavirus numbers in the state this week had one lackluster place to voice their frustrations about the rapidly escalating public health crisis killing their constituents: a Zoom press conference.“While some states followed the advice of public health experts, Texas did not,” Dallas-area State Rep. Toni Rose said from a webcam on Wednesday, a photograph of the Texas Capitol superimposed behind her. It was certainly not ...

Lakers focus on player health and injury prevention ahead of restart

For just about four months, Anthony Davis lived with the pain. After an injury during the opening slate of games last fall when he jammed his right shoulder, it was common, even for months afterward, to see the 6-foot-10 forward rolling the joint while wincing in pain. Davis gets these nagging injuries that are difficult to shake once in the rhythm of the season. So in one light, the hiatus has done him good: Without the physical toll of games and going through daily workouts – with plenty of do...

Lakers begin training camp under haze of uncertainty but continue hoping for the best

In a typical year, July 1 is a day of NBA imagination — when organizations land huge free agency targets and begin to envision what their team will be.

On Wednesday, coach Frank Vogel opened training camp with individual workouts and a better sense of what the top-seeded Lakers will do in Orlando. The team is sti...

Rent Woes: Renters Worry As Eviction Moratorium Expiration Date Nears

SACRAMENTO (CBS13) — For the last few months, bills have been piling up for Sonia Rodriguez. “We can’t pay the rent. We can’t pay our car payment. We can’t pay our bills,” Rodriguez said. “It’s just too much, we’re going to be back-paying for years to come.” Her normally 40-50 hour a week job has since cut her hours to 15 maximum, and her experience with EDD in California hasn’t been pleasant either. Her claim has sat with the status pending for the last six weeks, and she expects that to contin...

Global-Minded Throws by a Former Fashion Designer, Inspired by the Swedish Archipelago (and Art Deco, Peru, and Portugal)

Were it permissible for me to acquire any more throws (I wish it were, but it’s not—I have more blankets in my apartment than dinner plates), I’d order one from Johanna Howard‘s collection. Her throws are sustainable and fair-trade and have a classic-ness about them, yet they’re also full of unexpected colorways and patterns and pleasing details—a whipstitched hem, a celestial scatter of dots—which, as it turns out, are nods at Howard’s far-flung sources of inspiration, from Stockholm to Art Dec...

Analysis: How the Lakers move forward without Avery Bradley

For a stretch of games in November and December, the Lakers were reinvigorated by what they called “the Avery Challenge.” At the time, Avery Bradley was sidelined by a hairline fracture in his right leg, and without their best on-ball defender, their defense had slipped. The goal of the challenge was to play as well without Bradley on defense as they had with him. The Lakers now know that if the NBA is able to restart next month in Orlando, the entire postseason will be a challenge after Bradley...
