    With just over 24 hours remaining until the kickoff of this year's "Game of the Century" (there seems to be one every year) between USC and Texas in the Rose Bowl, LAist is loving the feeding frenzy for tickets that is raging on popular swap-everything site Craigslist.

However, these games also proved that while the Clippers may not be true NBA championship contenders, they are definitely on the right track. Against Detroit,...

The Lakers had no business winning last night against the lowly Charlotte Bobcats (who were 1-9 on the road and 5-12 overall coming into the game), but thanks to a pair of clanged free throws by career 78% free throw shooter Brevin Knight down the stretch, the Lakers escaped with a 99-98 win.

    The biggest story in the NFL this year has been the ongoing soap opera that continues to play out between Terrell Owens and the Philadelphia Eagles.
