Can we blame Curry for his swagger when a third straight trip to the Finals has the air of inevitability we usually reserve for such mundane daily events as the rising of the sun or morning traffic in Los Angeles? It's unfair for fans and pundits to expect any less from our greatest athletes. Curry's feeling himself and rightfully so. Dave Schilling is a writer at large for Bleacher Report.

When I think back to the Bumper Boat Debacle of 1984, I can see the trappings of an awkward moment : I was in middle school; there were unknown bystanders; and people were telling me, It will be easy. I was at a family reunion in Colorado resort when my cousins and I stumbled upon the ride, and they suggested we should give it a try. I felt a vague trepidation, but I also wanted to be a good sport, and so a few minutes later I was boarding one of the small, round boats. As the attendant began explaining how to operate the things, I caught a glimpse of the Los Angeles Dodgers logo on his blue baseball cap and it triggered my strange, encyclopedic memory for baseball statistics. My mind wandered into a vast matrix of strikeouts, earned-run-averages until I heard the clang of the starting bell. Despite the straightforward branding of the bumper boat experience, I was startled when I was blindsided by my cousin Jeff.

Kobe Bryant is a legend on the basketball court, but he's much, much more than that. The former shooting guard for the Los Angeles Lakers appeared on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon on Monday night to promote his new film, Dear Basketball and while there, he had an opportunity to flex on the haters by whipping out an unexpected talent: slam poetry. A turtleneck-wearing Bryant laments about Steve Urkle, everyone's favorite character on the '90s sitcom Family Matters. He performs with unexpected grace and flow that would make the television nerd proud. Don't worry, he slides in the iconic catchphrase in there, too. Read more...

A volunteer carries the body of civilians killed in a US air strike in Mosul, Iraq on March 24, 2017. (AP/Felipe Dana) WASHINGTON, D.C. In the Iraqi city of Mosul, local residents have retrieved almost 300 bodies from underneath buildings that were leveled by a U.S. airstrike that took place on March 17. The strike killed hundreds as part of an attempt by a U.S.-led coalition to combat Daesh (ISIS) forces by bombing their network of tunnels. Lt. Gen. Stephen J. Townsend, a senior U.S. commander in Iraq, admitted to The New York Times that, as of now, ”the initial assessment is that we probably had a role in these casualties.” In an interview with The Los Angeles Times , U.S. Brig. General Rick Uribe, who is reportedly in charge of approving strikes across parts of Iraq, argued that they're “very careful” about how much “collateral damage” such strikes might cause.

And the bubble is growing more extreme. Parts of the media have always had their own bubbles. The national magazine industry has been concentrated in New York for generations, and the copy produced reflects an Eastern sensibility. Radio and TV networks based in New York and Los Angeles likewise have shared that dominant sensibility. But they were more than balanced out by the number of newspaper jobs in big cities, midsized cities and smaller towns throughout the country, spreading journalists everywhere. No longer. The newspaper industry has jettisoned hundreds of thousands of jobs, due to falling advertising revenues. Dailies have shrunk sections, pages and features; some have retreated from daily publication; hundreds have closed. Daily and weekly newspaper publishers employed about 455,000 reporters, clerks, salespeople, designers and the like in 1990, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

LOS ANGELES: The Golden State Warriors punched their ticket to the second round of the NBA playoffs in emphatic style on Monday, with a 128-103 victory over the Portland Trail Blazers. Stephen Curry scored 37 points with eight assists and seven rebounds before sitting out the fourth quarter as the Warriors wrapped up a four-game sweep of the best-of-seven Western Conference first-round series. The Warriors' 45 first-quarter points tied the NBA record for the most points scored in the opening period of a playoff game, and left the Trail Blazers reeling on their home floor in Portland. "There was a sense of urgency," said Curry, who made 12 of 20 shots from the field, including seven of 11 from three-point range. "There was a nice energy to us before the game. We were kind of loose but focused. It showed in the first six minutes, and we never let up.

So good. It's like a 12-year-old boy's trapped in a 53-year-old's body dream come true to do with his boys. Yeah. I can't imagine how fun it is. We have a clip of something. What? It's called The Lowe Files. It's on A&E in July. So when I grew up in Malibu there was a legend that submarines could go under Los Angeles via the Continental Shelf. That was the urban myth. Hm.
