VP candidate Kamala Harris left an ‘imprint’ while visiting Clippers, Doc Rivers says

Asked Wednesday what he thought about Joe Biden’s pick for running mate, Doc Rivers gushed, “It’s just beautiful.” On Tuesday, the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee answered the most highly anticipated question of his campaign when he announced that California Sen. Kamala Harris will join him on the ticket. If the Biden-Harris candidacy is successful, she would become the first woman, the first Black American and the first South Asian American to serve as the nation’s vice president. “...

Kings Sink 21 3s, Roll To Win As Lakers Rest Most Starters

LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. (AP) — Buddy Hield scored 28 points, including a 3-pointer that capped Sacramento’s streak of 11 consecutive baskets made in the third period, and the Kings beat the Los Angeles Lakers 136-122 on Thursday.

Seahawks Cut Rookie CB Kemah Siverand After He Was Caught on Video Trying to Sneak Woman Dressed As Player Into Team Hotel

The Seattle Seahawks cut rookie cornerback Kemah Siverand earlier this week “after he was caught on video trying to sneak a female visitor into the team hotel,” according to NFL Networker reporter Tom Pelissero. Pelissero added that Siverand’s ruse was pretty elaborate, saying that the woman was dressed in Seahawks gear “in an attempt to disguise her as a player … It did not work.” While the NFL hasn’t implemented a “bubble”-like environment like the NBA or NHL amid the COVID-19 pandemic, teams ...

LeBron James finishes as NBA assists leader as Lakers fall to Kings

LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. >> One of the shortest Lakers regular seasons in history — and yet also the longest — finally came to an end. It’s been 296 days since a high-profile Lakers-Clippers match-up at Staples Center that kicked off the 2019-2020 in front of a raucous crowd and huge TV ratings. Thursday’s meaningless 136-122 loss to the Sacramento Kings had little of the fanfare, but nonetheless wrapped up 71 games that saw the Lakers finish first overall in the Western Conference (52-19) while n...

Clippers rookie Terance Mann takes confidence cues from veterans

No amount of sage advice could’ve prepared Terance Mann for his rookie season in the NBA; there simply wasn’t a blueprint for a season interrupted for four-plus months by a pandemic before being reset in a sealed-off Florida bubble. But though everyone involved is a rookie in regard to the situation and surroundings at Walt Disney World Resort, the game is the game, and the Clippers’ institutional wisdom for what works when you’re coming off the bench stands. “We follow the leadership of Lou Wil...

The Oura Ring is the personal health tracking device to beat in 2020

The Oura Ring has been getting a lot of attention lately because of its role in a number of COVID-19 studies, as well as its adoption by both the NBA and WNBA as a potential tool for helping prevent any outbreaks of the novel coronavirus as those two leagues get back to a regular schedule of play. Oura has released multiple generations of the Ring, which is a health and fitness tracker that reports a range of data, and I’ve spent the past month using one to see what all the fuss is about.

That should happen as early as Aug. 31, when players in the NBA bubble can bring family members and other close loved ones as guests. “I already know she’s gonna go crazy,” he said. “She’ll do anything to see me, so it is what it is.” ESPN was first to report that the NBA had released an updated memo about player guests, who s...

Alexander: How will spectator sports look after COVID-19?

While watching NBA games in Disney’s Orlando bubble over the next few weeks, pay attention to the video boards behind the benches. You may be looking at part of the future of spectator sports in North America. The novel coronavirus pandemic has created experiences of which we never would have dreamed: Games played in empty stadiums and arenas, with artificial crowd noise over the loudspeakers and cardboard cutouts representing “fans,” in what are unapologetically billed as made-for-TV events.

What’s next? UCLA football looks beyond postponed fall season

Well before the Pac-12 joined the Big Ten on Tuesday in announcing it was canceling the 2020 fall football season and all of its fall sports in hopes of beginning in January and playing through the spring, UCLA had been taking a cautious approach. The Bruins had returned to light workouts in July, with a feeling all along that a postponement or cancellation was inevitable. So, you can forget about the possibility of UCLA opening the season Sept. 26 against rival USC or a 10-game conference sched...

Barnes Leads Kings To Another Win Over Pelicans, 112-106

AKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. (AP) – Harrison Barnes scored 25 points, including 12 in the third quarter, and the Sacramento Kings beat the New Orleans Pelicans 112-106 on Tuesday night.

Jubilation, anguish as race for NBA’s Western 8th seed gets as close as ever

LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. — He had just finished scoring 61 points in a needed win for his Trail Blazers. But Damian Lillard wasn’t done. He puffed out his chest and shouted toward press row, “Put some (expletive) respect on my name!” Of course, the people actually present for Lillard’s performance probably didn’t need any more telling. The NBA restart has been as colorful and compelling as could have been imagined, and that’s thanks much in part to a riveting race for the Western Conference eighth...

Whicker: Spring football is the right move for Pac-12, maybe for good

No law consigns college football to autumn, especially in a place where autumn doesn’t exist. The fallen leaves do not crackle as you walk toward the Coliseum or the Rose Bowl or Sun Devil Stadium. Octobers in L.A. do not bring sweater weather. Pac-12 football will not be played this fall, and, sure, that will leave a void. It will be no more painful than losing your 10 o’clock worship or your monthly hair appointment and not nearly as dislocating as losing your job. As the 40,000 or so empty se...

Joe Maddon in favor of MLB playoffs in a bubble – with good weather

ANAHEIM — The Major League Baseball postseason might be headed to Southern California, regardless of what the Angels and Dodgers do, and Joe Maddon is all for it. MLB is considering bubble scenarios for the postseason, similar to what the NBA and NHL have done, in order to help protect the sport from the coronavirus. Areas with multiple MLB facilities, including Southern California, are reportedly possibilities to host the postseason. To Maddon, it’s a great idea not just because of the coronavi...
