    Hopefully this isn't a DB:


    The coach pictured is assistant coach Jay Locey, not Mike Riley.

    Why are they running a column on UCLA hoops right next to it? Dumb.

    And the purported "Riley" photo is looking away from the USC story and toward the UCLA story.

    This is like an onion with layers and layers of fail.

    In some ways, its "old" 1A certainly being one of them, these layout issues are something the Times has rarely worried about. From their standpoint, only the bad photo is "wrong."

    Since Mark Heisler now is the NBA writer for all Tribune Co. papers at once, I wonder how the outposts in Chicago, Hartford and Florida like the angle touted near the top of the page (all Clippers, all the time).

    Actually, the South Florida paper's main Sunday NBA column/page is still done by Winderman.

    The Clippers winning? I'd consider that big news.

    Mark writes a good chunk his main column on the Lakers or Clippers. But he also does a notes package and rankings. Still a must-read for me.

    And as usual, SF is right in terms of the layout and the Times' thinking. Not saying I agree with it, but stuff like that is in their DNA.

    It's the damndest thing -- they pretty much have always taken PRIDE in not following the "rules" with regard to layout.
  10. Maybe that's why he didn't want to come to LA... felt disrespected already!

    That is a horribly packaged front page there.

    In the finest L.A. Times tradition.
