Shortly after Steve Nash smiled and held up a Lakers jersey at his introductory news conference last week, General Manager Mitch Kupchak was asked if another home run could be hit this summer. "So you're asking if we can do that twice?" he said. "I'm not quite sure that's possible. " Then again . . . The Lakers remain committed to probing every corner to unearth Orlando Magic center Dwight Howard, who has one more year and $19.5 million left on his contract. What they want is a commitment from Howard, who has been reluctant to agree to a contract extension with them.

It may be the dog days of the NBA offseason, but there's still plenty of things to monitor. First of all, Laker fans can still get their hoops fix by watching the 2012 London Olympics. Among the notable subplots: Kobe Bryant has played an elder statesman role with Team USA where he's providing leadership, deferring teammates and playing defense. Pau Gasol remains Spain's No. 1 option, became the country's flag bearer and hopes he can rectify his native country's gold-medal match loss to Team USA in the 2008 Beijing Olympics.

Driving his backup car, Brad Keselowski raced to third NASCAR Sprint Cup win of the year, grabbing the lead with 55 laps remaining and holding off all challengers on Saturday at Kentucky Speedway in Sparta. The 28-year-old picked up his seventh win in his five years on the circuit. He won earlier this year at Bristol and Talladega. While registering his 16th career top-five finish, he ended a lull over the past four starts where he had failed to crack the top 10. He was driving his backup car after slamming the right side of his top car into the wall following a collision with Juan Pablo Montoya during practice earlier in the week.

The NCAA's new academic requirements could give new meaning to the madness of March. On Wednesday, three-time national champion Connecticut and nine other men's basketball teams were banned from the NCAA tournament because of poor Academic Progress Rate scores. The penalties affect seven conferences, each of which must adapt to a new landscape for their league tournaments. Four conferences — the Big East, Big West, Ohio Valley, Southland and Southwest Athletic — said the banned teams cannot compete in their league tournaments.

If you examine the commemorative cover of Sports Illustrated closely, you can make out part of Bob Myers' head. Mostly, you see his arms wrapped around Tyus Edney, hoisting the UCLA point guard into the air after Edney's legendary baseline-to-baseline basket beat Missouri in the 1995 NCAA tournament. The snapshot perfectly captures Myers' rise to prominence, from a bit player with the Bruins who won a national championship to a high-powered sports agent to the second-youngest general manager in the NBA with the Golden State Warriors.

The Orlando Magic hired Jacque Vaughn , 37, as its head coach Saturday, continuing the youth movement of the basketball operations department after the hiring of 30-year-old General Manager Rob Hennigan last month. Vaughn becomes the 10th coach in team history and replaces Stan Van Gundy , who was fired despite compiling a 259-135 regular-season record, franchise-best .657 winning percentage and a 31-28 playoff record. "As we navigated through our coaching search, we quickly saw that Jacque's spirit and leadership strengths made him the clear choice," Hennigan said in a statement.

Steve Nash walked into the Lakers' practice facility Wednesday wearing a black pinstriped suit with a red pocket square, his white dress shirt bearing an open collar. It might be the last time this summer a superstar breaks out the haute couture to be introduced as a Laker. A day after the Lakers reentered trade discussions involving Orlando's Dwight Howard, General Manager Mitch Kupchak did not exactly express optimism that his team would add another celebrated player before next season.
