Lakers’ philosophy: You are what you eat

EL SEGUNDO, Calif. — That saying ‘You are what you eat’ became serious business this season for Lakers players, subjects to a new nutrition project designed by their training staff in partnership with none other than America’s healthiest grocery store. “I ate a lot of Jack In The Box in college and Taco Bell and now I’ve transferred into Whole Foods,” laughed Robert Sacre. “Grass-fed animals, that’s all I eat, is grass-fed animals and I…

Ducks Feast on Sharks’ Mistakes

HONDA CENTER — Starving for a victory, the San Jose Sharks put up better than the ‘C’ or ‘D’ game they played two nights prior in Los Angeles but ended up getting shot down by the Pacific division-leading Anaheim Ducks 5-3 on Monday all because of a slip-up midway through the game. Defenseman Jason Demers’ one-timer from the right point with 58 seconds remaining in the first period tied the game at 1-1. It was…

ONTARIO — If it was doomsday on ice for the San Francisco Bulls at their “End of the World As We Know It” game on Friday, then the day after doomsday turned out to be, well, doomsday again.

Lakers visitan a los Warriors buscando mantener su racha de triunfos

Hace 10 días, los Guerreros derrotaron la escuadra poderosa del Heat de Miami, y ayer vencieron a los Bobcats de Charlotte por cinco puntos mientras…

Can Steve Nash save the day?

Can Steve Nash save the day?

What started out as head coach Mike Brown saying “it’s a process” as reason for the Lakers’ subpar performance has become head coach Mike D’Antoni using “when Nash comes back” to explain the team’s recent struggles. “We’ll figure it out when Steve comes back and gives a little more flow to it,” D’Antoni said about the team’s lackluster offense following Tuesday night’s loss to the Cleveland Cavaliers. “Right now, we’re all screwed up,” he admitted….

Reign barbecue Bulls in blowout

ONTARIO — The Ontario Reign caught fire on the ice Friday night, scorching the San Francisco Bulls 7-0 as captain Derek Couture notched a hat trick. Losing – by a lot – seems to be a recurring theme for the Bulls the last several times they’ve fallen to the Reign.

With D’Antoni, will the defense rest?

With D’Antoni, will the defense rest?

One of the first things that Lakers fans emotionally invested in the return of Phil Jackson pointed to in the hiring of Mike D’Antoni was that he apparently doesn’t coach defense. D’Antoni, 61, who has never before had a player on a level with Dwight Howard – the three-time NBA Defensive Player of the Year — had something to say about that in his introductory press conference last week. “Maybe he can put the D…
