The shot looked flat. The spring in his step looked sluggish. Then came Kobe Bryant's revelation after making three of 20 shots in the Lakers' 88-85 win March 31 against the New Orleans Hornets. "Fatigue might have something to do with it," he said. Bryant usually downplays this issue or ignores it completely. He tried to do that after Thursday's practice, insisting, "I was fine" while he logged 38 minutes a game during the season. Yet his initial comments suggest otherwise.

TEMPE, Ariz. - As kids, Sean Burnett and Prince Fielder were teammates on a travel ball team in Florida. The team was called The Juice, and packed with 11- and 12-year-olds. Rickie Weeks played second base. Chet Lemon , the former major league outfielder, was the manager. The Juice won an AAU national championship, Burnett said. "We probably won 85 games in a row," he said. "That was probably the best team I've ever been a part of. " Burnett and Fielder should have quite a few reunions this summer.

Phoenix -- Kobe Bryant will not play every game this season. He was sidelined Saturday against Phoenix because of a condition called "tenosynovitis" in his left shin. There is no timetable for his return, though he will be re-evaluated Monday in New Orleans before the Lakers play the Hornets that night. Bryant was kicked in the shin last Saturday against New Orleans and the sensitivity in the area became progressively worse. The Lakers tried putting him in a walking boot earlier this week, and he felt better between games, but he would feel pain again in the area after a game.

Twenty thousand North Koreans flee Kim Jong Un's Communist regime every year. The possibility that a few of the defectors who settle in the South might be sleeper agents was the premise of 1999's "Shiri," South Korea's first Hollywood-style action movie. The spy thriller "The Suspect" exploits that same anxiety about welcoming North Korean refugees but displays much grander ambitions than its predecessor. The murder of an aging corporate executive sets in motion the hunt for Ji Dong-cheol (Gong Yoo)

Kobe Bryant will miss a sixth consecutive game because of a sore left shin when the Lakers play the San Antonio Spurs on Tuesday at Staples Center. Lakers Coach Mike Brown said at his team's shoot-around Tuesday morning that Bryant continued to progress in his recovery, but he would not predict when his star shooting guard might return. "He's done some one-on-one stuff," Brown said, "and he's starting to move around a little bit pretty good. " Bryant will need to show trainers he can run and jump without pain before being cleared to play.

Steve Nash and longtime Lakers trainer Gary Vitti talked after the team's shoot-around Friday morning. It wasn't a quick, "Can you play tonight? Yes? Excellent. " Not a good sign for the Lakers. Nash missed a game for the first time with them, unable to recover from a bruised left shin and face the Clippers later in the day. The slow start continued for the player with the fifth-most assists in NBA history. Nash, 38, had seven points and four assists in his Lakers debut Tuesday against Dallas.

His offices in Seoul are nearly 7,000 miles from New York - a 14-hour flight made several times a year - but that hasn't deterred Chun-soo Shin from his bid to become a major Broadway player. One of Korea's top theater producers, Shin has already made money off the growing popularity of American-style musicals in his native country. His hits include "Dreamgirls" and "Jekyll & Hyde," the latter of which has become one of the most popular musicals ever produced in Korea. The 45-year-old Shin is now looking to take his success to a global level.

NEW ORLEANS -- Kobe Bryant missed another game because of a sore left shin, but the Lakers survived the New Orleans Hornets ... barely. Pau Gasol had 25 points, Andrew Bynum added 18 and Ramon Sessions hit a big three-pointer as the Lakers overcame an eight-point deficit in the fourth quarter to win, 93-91, Monday at New Orleans Arena. Bryant is being called day to day by the Lakers, who finish a three-game trip Wednesday in San Antonio. Trainer Gary Vitti reevaluated him Monday and detected improvement in the shin but not enough to let him play.

What was just another Saturday night game for the Dodgers was something of far greater significance for Hyun-Jin Ryu. The Dodgers left-hander rarely has had as many eyes on him as he did in this game against the Cincinnati Reds, which marked his first time pitching to fellow South Korean Shin-Soo Choo. "I was definitely more nervous," Ryu said through a translator. BOX SCORE: Dodgers 4, Reds 1 Dodger Stadium, filled to capacity, temporarily became the unofficial capital of Ryu's homeland.

TEMPE, Ariz. - Bill Lachemann was on the same Dorsey High baseball team as legendary manager Sparky Anderson. He played his first professional game five years before Angels rising star Mike Trout's father was born and caught former Angels pitcher Jim Abbott's first bullpen session four years after qualifying for an AARP card. He turns 79 next month, and he is 27 years older than the team that employs him, the Angels. And what he does now is what he's been doing for decades: produce major league ballplayers.

Israel's Shin Bet - think of it as a combination of the CIA and the FBI - prides itself on secrecy. So when documentary filmmaker Dror Moreh approached one of its past leaders some three years ago to discuss the agency's role in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, he expected silence. But as in so much of life, timing is everything. When Moreh contacted Ami Ayalon, who headed the domestic counterterrorism agency from 1996-2000, the left-leaning Ayalon was ready to talk - and to help Moreh secure interviews with the other five living former Shin Bet leaders.

"We all have our moments," says Yuval Diskin, calm, thoughtful, disturbed. "Maybe you're shaving and you think, 'I make a decision and x number of people are killed.' The power to take lives in an instant, there's something unnatural about it. " The "we" in that compelling statement refers to a very small group of individuals, the men who, like Diskin, have been the heads of Shin Bet, Israel's shadowy, super-secret domestic counterterrorism agency,...

Jiyai Shin avoided mistakes in miserable weather conditions Sunday to cruise to a record nine-stroke victory in the Women's British Open at Hoylake, England. In the 36-hole finish Sunday in the wind-delayed tournament, Shin took a three-shot lead into the final round after shooting a one-under-par 71 in the morning.

The 24-year-old South Korean player won the major championship for the second time in five years and also won for the second time in seven days on the LPGA Tour.
