Mike Muscala reflects on trade, injuries and disappointment with the Lakers

LOS ANGELES — He doesn’t have Instagram, and he hasn’t tweeted in months. For Mike Muscala, withdrawing from social media is probably a blessing.

He was brought in to space the floor and hopefully help spark a playoff run, but as both those ambitions fell off, Muscala has become a target of, and ammunition for, wit...

Lakers keep surprising, knocking off Utah Jazz at home

LOS ANGELES – How is this supposed to work again? The Lakers’ season is already in the tank, and the last few weeks have seen the organization sideline its stars.

The Lakers (37-44) officially let youth take the wheel, giving Jemerrio Jones the nod in the starting lineup over Rajon Rondo, who did not play. Only eight Lakers tot...

NBA seeks answers to fans’ ugly mistreatment of players

There’s times when it’s just the soundtrack of a game – fans shouting at NBA players to look at them, or to miss a shot, or even telling them they stink. It can blend in to the music blasted over the PA, to the sound of the ball bouncing, or the squeak of sneakers. Then sometimes, someone says something that stands out in the wrong kind of way. It happens too often, players say, and that’s leading to a reckoning in the league that is sweeping from Boston to Salt Lake City. Incidents captured on ...
