A few years ago, there wasn't a single ice-skating rink in all of Nevada. Perhaps the busiest skates in these parts belonged to the semi-sequined stars of Nudes on Ice. Hockey fans worth their salt traveled 300 miles to the Forum each winter for the requisite dose of breakaways and body checks.

Edgar Esqueda of San Fernando High thought playing baseball in Las Vegas would be an adventure. But he had no idea how difficult it would be just to get here. Esqueda's expectations of a fun-filled week took a wrong turn when the transmission failed on one of the Tigers' new vans Thursday morning at Stateline, Nev., during their four-hour drive. "I was so excited for this trip [because] we'd never gone anywhere before," said Esqueda, a senior catcher.

What a long, strange trip it's been. NBA seasons don't start in Paris or end in Las Vegas. You can generally count on your starting five for more than 58% of its games. But the '91-92 Lakers will have to upset the Portland Trail Blazers today--again--to avoid qualifying on all points.
