Dynasty in the making? Lakers see the pieces to pick up where the Warriors left off

Even nine years into his NBA career, Anthony Davis still is occasionally struck by how a childhood dream has played out. The Lakers’ big man was scrolling through Instagram on the bus to the arena before a playoff game last season when he came across a post about how many postseason records his teammate LeBron James has. He sent a message to James drawing on nostalgia and remembering another bus trip he took from Chicago to Akron as a teenager to attend James’ camp. “‘Seeing you for the first ti...

Lakers’ early success due to improved 3-point shooting

In a 3-point shooting contest on the Lakers, who would win? LeBron James had to consider the question for a moment. “We got a lot of great, knock-down shooters,” he said. “Obviously if someone says ‘bet,’ then obviously you guys know, I’m going to take myself.” It wasn’t a terribly interesting question last season. This year, it would actually be compelling viewing for the third-ranked 3-point shooting team in the NBA (39.6%). Only the Clippers (43.6%) and Bucks (41.1%) have hit higher averages ...

Clippers, Warriors stay vigilant amid coronavirus concerns

The steady drumbeat of coronavirus-related health and safety news cropping up throughout the NBA can make it hard to keep up with who’s in, who’s out and even who’s quarantining in which city. On Thursday, the league announced that four positive coronavirus results emerged from the 498 NBA players tested since Dec. 30. A few hours later, news broke that Philadelphia guard Seth Curry tested positive shortly after the 76ers’ game began in Brooklyn. Before the team reportedly became aware of Curry’...

Substitute for Dillweed 

Dillweed shares a family with parsley and celery. And has a botanical name called AnethumGraveolens, which is the only species of its genus? It originates from the Eastern Mediterranean region and Western Asia. One of the words that make it up, dill, comes from the old Norse word Dylla, which means to soothe. Earlier in the first century Rome, dill weed was seen as a good luck symbol. The old Egyptian race used it to ward off witches and also as an aphrodisiac. To the ancient Greeks, dill weed ...

Whicker: Well-rested Warriors hope they can be good enough to deserve your hate

The year 2020 has been a crusher, with some exceptions. Ventriloquists have thrived under the masks. Golf enjoyed its best increase in participation since 1997, the year of Tiger Woods’ first Masters. Zoom executives and investors will look back fondly. And those who grew to hate a basketball team that set new definitions for creativity, unselfishness, exuberance and entertainment? This was their favorite year. The Golden State Warriors were both awful and invisible in 2020. They won six games i...
