Rookie RB Joshua Kelley moves on from UCLA days to create Chargers memories

Joshua Kelley learned he’s an irritable person after dealing with the limitations caused by the coronavirus pandemic, a somewhat shocking revelation coming from the cheery Chargers rookie running back. “I didn’t know,” Kelley said Friday in a Zoom interview. “There’s people who try to be like, ‘Oh, man. This dude is cool. He’s really nice.’ I didn’t know how irritable I am. How really annoyed I get.” It’s hard to believe Kelley’s self discovery, especially after he smiled throughout his 20-minut...

Whicker: Can the NBA survive in the ecosystem it built?

Where were they all standing when the music stopped? The Lakers were sitting on top of both the Western Conference and the rim, knocking away shots like kings on a mountain. The Houston Rockets, also known as Smurfin’ USA, were trying to find a title by running through everyone’s legs.

After that he complained his way through a series of primary debates with roughly 600 other would-be Democratic candid...
