Letters: Lakers fans relatively happy with their week

Bill Plaschke had such a great opportunity on draft night to take attention off LaVar Ball and give it all to Lonzo, but no, he did the exact opposite.

Letters: What will the Lakers do with No. 2?

2 weeks agoSports / Baseball : Dodgers Now

Careful what you wish for, Bill Plaschke. If Lonzo Ball does indeed have NBA-ready skill sets (probably wishful thinking) and if he is coachable and possesses necessary leadership ability (at best unproven) and if a neophyte coach with one disastrous season under his belt can actually coach him,...

Bill Plaschke | Bruins go to school on the Trojans

Everyone knows the UCLA basketball team can score, and dish, and run through the gym as if they are flying. But at a rollicking Pauley Pavilion that included all those things Saturday night, the Bruins proved capable of equally important attributes. They can learn. They can grow. And yes, they...

Bill Plaschke | Lucerne Valley has been outscored by 747 points, but the Mustangs refuse to quit

Bill Plaschke | USC-Penn State matchup: a Rose Bowl the way it's meant to be

Yes, you’re right, scream away, Adrian Gonzalez was safe.

Bill Plaschke's rhetorical question — "They can't blow it now. Can they?" regarding the Lakers ending up with the No. 2 pick in the NBA draft — begs to be answered. And the answer is that as long as Jimmy Buss is making the pick, Lakers fans have every reason to believe he will serve up another...
