MILWAUKEE - The Milwaukee Bucks are an awful team, clinging to the NBA's worst record week after week, month after month. But they can always remember one thing about this season. They swept the Lakers. It became official Thursday, 108-105, another loss for the Lakers that was only slightly better than their dismal one at home to the Bucks. On New Year's Eve. By 15. Was it already mentioned that the Bucks are the worst team in the NBA? This one took place in front of thousands of empty seats because the Wisconsin Badgers started a Sweet 16 game in Anaheim 15 minutes before tipoff here.

The Milwaukee Bucks (13-58) have the worst record in the NBA.  Even after the Philadelphia 76ers (15-56) lost 25-straight games, they're still ahead of the Bucks in the standings. The Lakers (24-46) visit Milwaukee on Thursday night, with a chance to win their third-straight game. Steve Nash is iffy (nerve-root irritation), but the Lakers will play without Pau Gasol (vertigo), Kobe Bryant (knee) and Jordan Farmar (groin), Key matchup The Bucks defeated the Lakers on Dec. 31, 94-79, getting 37 points from guard Brandon Knight.

Re “ The court sides with secrecy ,” Editorial, Feb. 27 Your editorial was misdirected. It is the president who has control over how much secrecy there will be. As a first-time presidential candidate, Obama rebuffed opponents of warrantless wiretaps (the top concern of the public on his campaign website) who urged him to abide by the rule of law under the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act. Obama leveraged warrantless wiretapping to his current policy of no judicial oversight whatsoever on targeted killings of suspected terrorists, both foreigners and Americans.

If you're the New York Yankees, you throw money at your problems. The Yankees threw $180 million at Mark Teixeira, $161 million at CC Sabathia and $82.5 million on A.J. Burnett over the winter -- and this was one year after throwing $275 million at Alex Rodriguez. The Yankees have not won the World Series since 2000, despite sporting the highest payroll in the major leagues every year since then.

A new novel by Pearl S. Buck will be published in October, more than 40 years after her death. Buck, best known for her novel "The Good Earth," won the Nobel Prize for literature in 1938. " The Eternal Wonder " was discovered in storage and will be published as an e-book original by Open Road Media. Buck finished the novel not long before she died in 1973. The novel is, the publisher writes, a coming-of-age story of "an extraordinarily gifted young man whose search for meaning and purpose leads him to New York, England, Paris, on a mission patrolling the DMZ in Korea.

WILDLIFE officials are reminding Californians not to feed deer in the wake of three recent buck attacks, including a fatal assault on a San Diego man. According to Ryan Broddrick, director of the California Department of Fish and Game, this is the time of year bucks exhibit breeding behavior and become more aggressive. In San Diego County, a 73-year-old Rancho Santa Fe man died several weeks after he was gored in the mouth by a buck he surprised while working in his backyard.

Milwaukee Bucks 108 - Lakers 105 (end of regulation) The only true win for the Lakers on Thursday night in Milwaukee against the Bucks was a loss. Already out of the playoffs, the Lakers hurt their draft position with back-to-back wins over the Orlando Magic and New York Knicks. A 108-105 loss to the Bucks dropped the Lakers to 24-47, good for the sixth-worst record in the NBA. The Lakers are still within range of the Utah Jazz (23-49) and Boston Celtics (23-48). Brandon Knight led Milwaukee to a three-point win, scoring 30 points as the game's top scorer.

All you need to know about the season Milwaukee is having is that Philadelphia is on a 25-game losing streak . . . and still has a better record than that of the NBA-worst Bucks. The Bucks brought their traveling woe show to Staples Center on Monday night and somehow kept things more than competitive against the Clippers. The Clippers led by only four points with a little more than three minutes left before starting to vaguely resemble the team that has the league's second-best home record, emerging with a 106-98 victory that fell squarely into the scarier-than-it-should-have-been department.

Re "Prices of new drugs tough to take," March 10 I understand the necessity for drug companies to recoup research and development costs. But in regard to a medication that can cure hepatitis C, a spokesman for the maker of one drug that costs about $1,000 per pill says that the price reflects the "value" of the drug. This is unconscionable. I have multiple sclerosis, and my drugs are costly. In my case, prices should have dropped once all research and development were recouped; instead, they have increased.

Frank Robinson last played for the Baltimore Orioles in 1971. His final season as the team's manager was in 1991. Josh Hart was born in 1994. So it's not entirely surprising that the outfielder chosen 37th overall by Baltimore in last June's amateur draft didn't know much about the Orioles legend, who now serves as MLB's executive vice president of baseball development. So Baltimore Manager Buck Showalter decided to play schoolteacher after the 19-year-old prospect was introduced to the 78-year-old Hall of Famer at spring training camp on Monday.

There are things that don't make sense, and then there are things so bewildering that they require visual proof. Billy Ray Cryus' remake of “Achy Breaky Heart” is both. Cyrus, for reasons unclear, decided to issue a remix to his 1992 smash. And the result is, to be generous, an absolute mess. “Achy Breaky 2,” takes the country pop tune,  which has  justly been ranked by VH1 as one of the most awesomely bad songs ever, and inexplicably reimagines it as a club rap stomper.

Former Republican state legislator Tony Strickland has launched the first radio ad in the race for an open Santa Clarita/Antelope Valley area congressional seat. And the narrator of the ad is none other than retiring Rep. Howard P. "Buck" McKeon (R-Santa Clarita), the man Strickland and several others want to replace. "Hi, I'm Congressman Buck McKeon, and I've been fighting liberals in Washington since before it was cool," the ad begins.  McKeon continues, saying nice things about Strickland, a former state senator from neighboring Ventura County, whom he endorsed when he announced his retirement last month.

Before the Clippers started their shoot-around Monday, Darren Collison and J.J. Redick took the court to get in some shots. Collison has been gutting it out with a sprained left big toe. Redick has been dealing with back spasms, a bruised left knee and a sore right shoulder. But both Collison and Redick were hoping to play Monday night against the Milwaukee Bucks in the last game of the Clippers' seven-game trip. “I would say with either one of those, I couldn't tell you if they are going to play,” Clippers Coach Doc Rivers said.
