Whicker: Walker Buehler’s Octobers belong in an era when people were actually watching

If nobody sees Walker Buehler throw enough heavy baseballs to scatter the Tampa Bay Rays like tenpins, does it still count? The Dodgers think so. They lead this World Series 2-1, thanks to a 6-2 Game 3 win on Friday that continued Buehler’s blossoming into a legend of the fall. It wasn’t just him. Justin Turner took Charlie Morton deep in the first inning, then snatched Mike Zunino’s bullet and turned it into a double play in the third inning. Zunino was the ninth batter to face Buehler. It took...

To build a dynasty, Lakers must navigate a tricky, unpredictable offseason

LeBron James, the basketball player, loves to win. LeBron James, the sports fan, loves winners. While he grew up in Akron in the shadow of Ohio sports franchises, James was always attracted to the most powerful teams in sports, a lifelong New York Yankees and Dallas Cowboys fan.

Clippers make it official: Tyronn Lue is their new head coach

Tyronn Lue’s ability to connect with people and to think the game helped seal the deal for the Clippers, who announced Tuesday that the 43-year-old will be the franchise’s 26th head coach, confirming last week’s reporting. Lue was an assistant coach for the Clippers last season, and before that, he served as the head coach in Cleveland from 2016-18, when the LeBron James-led Cavaliers went 128-83, made it to three consecutive NBA Finals and won the franchise’s first NBA title in 2016. “Ty has be...

Tyronn Lue’s track record makes him a fit as Clippers coach

No two situations are exactly alike, of course. But if Tyronn Lue’s tenure in Cleveland is any indication of what the Clippers can expect from their new head coach, it’s easy to see why they tabbed him to steer a talented roster that faces lofty expectations. He was the candidate who’s done it before – and done it successfully and swiftly. Smarting after blowing a 3-1 series lead in the Western Conference semifinals, the Clippers hope Lue – who has agreed to a five-year deal to coach the team – ...

Wagering odds: Timberwolves more likely to trade No. 1 pick than keep it

We are just over a month away from the NBA Draft (Nov. 18), where the Wolves have the No. 1 overall pick for just the second time in franchise history. The first time they had it in 2015, they wisely chose franchise big man Karl-Anthony Towns. At that time, they were clearly at the start of a long rebuild after winning just 16 games the year before. The duo of KAT and Andrew Wiggins was much-hyped, but major success never materialized. A single playoff appearance — helped greatly by Jimmy Butler...
