Detroit Pistons owner Tom Gores and his wife, Holly, have listed their house in gated Mulholland Estates at $10.75 million. Although the Multiple Listing Service considers the community in the 90210 ZIP Code to be the Beverly Hills Post Office area, The Times' Mapping L.A. database shows the mansion sits within Sherman Oaks. The Mediterranean, custom built in 1992, features a family room with exposed beams, a paneled library, two bars, five fireplaces, a screening room, six bedrooms and eight bathrooms in 11,107 square feet.

Former NBA star Dennis Rodman was sentenced to 104 hours of community service by an Orange County court commissioner Tuesday after being found guilty of contempt for failing to pay child support. Rodman, who was found guilty on four counts of failing to pay child support last year, must also continue to pay child support to his former wife. Rodman's lawyer claimed last year that his client was "broke" and that he was unable to pay. Rodman's alcoholism and tarnished image have hurt Rodman's ability to pay, his lawyer claimed last year.

1. The Lakers faltered in their late-game execution in their 88-85 overtime loss Tuesday over the Detroit Pistons . Aside from Kobe Bryant's 19-foot elbow jumper that sent the game into overtime, the Lakers executed horribly late in the game. Let's start with the final play. Bryant threw up an off-balance three-pointer with six seconds left as if he had only a second on the clock, leading to Metta World Peace grabbing the rebound and throwing an off-balance three-point try just before time expired.

Mutiny is a volatile but somewhat archaic term, usually only referenced these days in "Pirates of the Caribbean" movies. But last year, NBA fans got a new introduction to the word when the Detroit Pistons started crumbling, with reports of a player mutiny taking place against then-Coach John Kuester. Kuester, now an assistant coach for the Lakers, heads back to the Motor City on Tuesday for the first time since he was fired in June 2011 from a team that, in some instances, openly rebelled against him. "I'm being honest with you, I wish them nothing but the best,” Kuester said.
