Clippers’ Terance Mann up for the challenge defensively

PHOENIX — “What we do,” Monty Williams said Tuesday, “is hard. The Phoenix Suns coach was answering a question before Game 2 of the Western Conference finals specifically about the torrent of criticism that has been leveled at Philadelphia’s Ben Simmons after the top-seeded 76ers’ second-round playoff exit. But Williams’ point was broader. Competing in the NBA might be lucrative, but it isn’t easy. It isn’t supposed to be. In your second year on the job, you can be assigned to stop from the most...

Suns’ Deandre Ayton welcomes Clippers’ small-ball challenge

PHOENIX — To its credit, Phoenix didn’t spend its week between games frittering away its advantage. While the Clippers labored against top-seeded Utah Jazz for six second-round games, the Suns spent their six days of downtime after sweeping Denver doing homework. So when the Clippers rolled out the small lineup Sunday that’s served them well so far this postseason, Phoenix were prepared. “I mean, that’s what we expected,” Suns star Devin Booker said after their 120-114 victory in Game 1 of the W...

Can the military academies compete with Stanford and Harvard in venture? Two veterans are raising $50M to find out

Soldier-entrepreneurs are unfortunately still a rare breed in Silicon Valley, despite the region’s origins in Cold War defense spending. While the courage and perseverance required to fight in an overseas battlefield (or the office bureaucracy on base) would seem a perfect fit for the travails of the founder, the reality is that the journey from solider to CEO is a long and arduous transition. A couple of organizations have popped up over the years to make the leap easier. For instance, Patriot ...

WSJ: Apple Piloted Running Its Own Subscription Based Primary Healthcare Service With 'Apple Doctors'

The project, which has since stalled due to internal concerns, was to offer customers an all-encompassing healthcare service that would integrate data collected from the iPhone and Apple Watch.

Whicker: The 2008 U.S. Open at Torrey Pines was Tiger Woods’ high-water mark

The 2008 U.S. Open was Tiger Woods’ White Album, his magnum opus. More precisely it was his American Gothic. He dragged his shattered left leg through the 7,643 yards of Torrey Pines South, programming it for four days. Then came a fifth day, a playoff with Rocco Mediate that went to a 19th hole. He won anyway. This wasn’t Tiger winning the Open by 15 shots at Pebble Beach. This was Tiger conquering his own torn ACL, the stress fracture that he’d discovered two months earlier, the supporting mus...

The 1978 Project: Arbitrary Awards

The 1978 Project edition of the Kaedrin Movie Awards were finished off last week. The idea is to recognize aspects of films that aren’t reflected in more traditional awards or other praise like a Top 10 list. However, any awards system will fail to capture all the nuances and complexity available; hence the Arbitrary Awards, an opportunity to commend movies that are weird or flawed in ways that don’t conform to normal standards. A few of these “awards” have become an annual tradition, but most a...

A social experiment shows women may be as likely as men to accept a gender pay gap if they benefit from it
