The play was designed for Kobe Bryant. The Lakers had squandered a 17-point lead over New Jersey and held only a one-point advantage at 88-87 with 10 seconds remaining. Matt Barnes delivered the ball to the team's star. Bryant, coming off of a screen, shot a 26-foot three-pointer, which bounced seven times on the rim before falling through the net, allowing an anxious Staples Center crowd to celebrate instead of reel over what otherwise could have been an inconceivable loss.

Harold Miner pulls up in a black Cadillac Escalade, rolls down a window and extends his right hand to greet a visitor. Later, the publicity-shy former USC basketball All-American is friendly and engaging. He shows no sign of discomfort as he recalls the pain of failed expectations and explains why he has mostly strayed from the public eye since his surprisingly unremarkable NBA career short-circuited 15 years ago. Smiling and laughing easily, he appears thoroughly at ease. This is a recluse?

The coaches at Chatsworth Sierra Canyon can't say enough good things about 6-foot-4 eighth-grader Cassius Stanley. "He's the best eighth-grade athlete I've seen," football Coach Jon Ellinghouse said. Stanley is considered a top basketball player, but he also plays football and baseball. The big question is whether he'll stay at Sierra Canyon for his freshman year or enroll at another high school. He's in Sacramento cheering on the girls' basketball team to an expected Division IV state title.
