Rich Hoffman: Doc Rivers said Tyrese Maxey ran with the 1s for most of the practice. When asked how he thinks he’ll fare, Rivers said, “I don’t know yet. It’s gonna take some time. He’s not a natural point guard, it’s a position he’s gonna have to learn.”
Tom Orsborn: Jakob on 1st practice: “I guess you can tell out there that we are trying to play a little bit faster, playing a little bit more active. We are aggressive on defense. Things like that are going to come more natural w/ a lot of young guys out there, a lot of hungry, new faces.”
To defend itself from a lawsuit filed by the widow of Kobe Bryant, the county of Los Angeles is trying to find out how much money she and other plaintiffs agreed to accept in exchange for dropping a separate lawsuit against a helicopter company in June, according to documents filed recently in federal court.
The county says such information could help show whether Vanessa Bryant and other plaintiffs are effectively double-dipping by attempting to recover damages for the “same harm” of emotional distress in two separate lawsuits stemming from the helicopter crash that killed the NBA legend in January 2020.
