How athletes protesting the national anthem has evolved over 17 years Lakers practice early hoping to answer all questions Lakers, Clippers schedules set for first round of NBA playoffs Trail Blazers, Grizzlies advance to NBA play-in game; Suns, Spurs see playoff dreams dashed “How good Julius Randle is,” Ingram said. “I watch every night. If he gets the basketball, how strong he is and some of the baskets he makes going to the basket and seeing that no one can really stop him. You know exactly what he’s going to do but no one (is) going to stop him.”Ingram said he has also been struck by how good Kyle Kuzma has been defensively.“A lot of guys are just stepping up and over the few months … some guys are really, really good,” he said.Being injured hasn’t been all positive, of course – and not just for the obvious reasons.Ingram said he has spent his unwelcome free time with his family, which has been good, and shopping, which has had some drawbacks.“I’m always going for clothes, I’m a little fashion guy,” I think I need to get back to basketball, I’m … overspending a little bit.”RING A DENGLuol Deng has played 13 minutes this season and has not appeared in a game since opening night. The likelihood of him ever again suiting up for the Lakers is remote.However, injuries left the Lakers so depleted on the perimeter in recent days that Walton said the team actually revisited the possibility of putting Deng back in the rotation.Related Articles “We’ve discussed it,” Walton said, adding that conversations involved “multiple people, but we decided it was best to keep it where we’ve been at.”Walton said that Deng was part of the discussions and that he agreed with the plan.Deng’s status remains one of the most peculiar sagas of the season. He is less than two years removed from signing a four-year, $72 million contract with the Lakers. Last season, he was phased out of the rotation due to the emergence of Brandon Ingram.The 32-year-old has insisted throughout this season that he intends to continue his career elsewhere, but for now is stuck. The Lakers either need to buy out the remainder of his contract or find a trade partner. The latter has proven so difficult that Magic Johnson laughed at the notion following the trade deadline.The most likely scenario involves the Lakers waiving Deng under the NBA’s stretch provision when they need the cap relief. Doing so next summer would allow them to take the cap hit of his remaining $36 million over five seasons. Trail Blazers beat Grizzlies in play-in, earn first-round series with the Lakers Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error EL SEGUNDO – Watching the final play unfold from the end of the bench a court-length away from the action, Brandon Ingram couldn’t help but imagine himself with the ball in his hands Friday against the Miami Heat.It was a new perspective for the second-year Lakers forward. In other tight games this season, when the Lakers have needed a game-winner, the play has been drawn up for him. On Friday, it was designed to go to Julius Randle before ending up in the hands of Isaiah Thomas, whose arcing 14-footer was short.“I think actually sitting there and watching I actually gained confidence and seeing I can make that play at the end of the game,” Ingram said. “I think in that situation you get to read it better on the bench. I think I got to read it better. I like knowing what spot to get to.”The viewing experience left him little doubt what would have transpired were he not sidelined for the eighth straight game with a strained left groin.

Make or miss I would have had the confidence to shoot the shot.”Ingram is likely still several days away from returning to the court for the Lakers. He is expected to be out Monday at Indiana, but with a practice scheduled two days later in New Orleans, could theoretically target March 22 against the Pelicans.“I wouldn’t be surprised if he plays on the road trip,” Coach Luke Walton said. “He is feeling much better he says. But we are going to keep being patient with him and make sure that he goes through all the proper channels before we throw him back out there.”In the meantime, Ingram continues watching – a limitation that has proven helpful he said. He has learned things from the sideline.Among the biggest?

Bosnia and Herzegovina legend Razija Mujanovic, a dominant force whenever she was on the court, is being honored with induction to the FIBA Hall of Fame in 2017.Mujanovic, who gained significant recognition for her international exploits, is among six former players being enshrined into the Hall of Fame, alongside Shaquille O’Neal (United States), Toni Kukoc (Croatia), Mickey Berkowitz (Israel), Pero Cameron (New Zealand) and Valdis Valters (Latvia). Joining them is coaching great Dusan Ivkovic (Serbia) and the Dream Team, arguably the greatest international team of all time. They were selected from a list of more than 150 candidates.The 2.02m center is revered in her homeland having initially been a standout figure with Yugoslavia, before proudly leading Bosnia and Herzegovina at their first-ever EuroBasket Women Final Round appearance in 1997.She also gained significant recognition for her success at club level in EuroLeague Women, while also breaking new ground by stepping out in the WNBA.Mujanovic first rose to prominence when she appeared in the Final of EuroBasket Women 1987 and even more so as she then helped Yugoslavia to an Olympic silver medal at the 1988 Seoul Games.A third Final appearance came at the FIBA Women’s Basketball World Cup in 1990 in Malaysia, when she confirmed her status as one of the top performers on the planet by averaging more than 23 points per game.Her national team successes in Seoul and Kuala Lumpur had also come either side of one of her defining career highlights, after the Celic native was crowned EuroLeague Women champion for the first time. It was made particularly special since it came with the Bosnia and Herzegovina based club, KK Jedinstvo Tusla.Mujanovic would stand on the top of the EuroLeague Women podium again in 1992 with CB Godella, prior to scooping consecutive titles in 1994 and 1995 with Societa Ginnastica.Her silver medal haul with Yugoslavia was also extended with another Final appearance at EuroBasket Women 1991. Then, exactly two decades ago, she finally realized her dream of taking Bosnia and Herzegovina into a major tournament when she led them in their EuroBasket Women debut.Two years later and Bosnia and Herzegovina made a return, only this time it was without Mujanovic, who was enhancing her already glittering resume with WNBA minutes at Detroit Shock.She would return to play for her country again and eventually hung up her shoes in 2007, having cemented her place as the best female player to ever come out of Bosnia and Herzegovina.Mujanovic also proved herself as one of the best players of her generation, as evidenced by the fact she was voted as European Player of the Year on three separate occasions.
