    @Superman either has foot in mouth disease or has anti social patterns. “Cancer with daddy” right after Mrs. Ball had a stroke? What is wrong with you?

    Los Altos moves up to D5. We lost 37 seniors and have to start the whole JV and some freshman next year. It’s going to be tough, but we can see the team improving every week. Big test this weekend at Cal Lu.

    @NWO , clever
    @The Real Deal, Lonzo could potentially be great, but we would have to deal with news and cancer with daddy, your right, however hope we get him because Kobe had his dad like this as well, he then grew some Blls and said no more, I run my show, I manage my money, and don’t come around me. Kobe wanted to be soccer player and was to be a pro, but dad pushed him and pushed him into Basketball, and hey sometimes as a dad we make those mistakes. but it turned out OK. I heard little brother is better than Lonzo.

    I’ve seen Lonzo play in person several times, and his talent resides in the form of great court awareness, knowing at every second where the ball needs to go for maximum effect. It’s a real shame that we can’t view this kid outside the context of his meddling father, because the youngster is probably just what the Lakers need.

    La Salle Baseball coach Mike Parisi won’t be back next season. He’s been at a couple Pasadena schools and made them relevant. Good luck to him where ever he ends up
