PRINCETON – A 58-year-old Moss Beach man was arrested on suspicion of setting fire to a hillside overlooking Pillar Point Harbor in Princeton earlier this week, authorities said.

What Matt Barnes and Magic Johnson think of the Warriors’ chances to unseat the Lakers

Avatar

Published

on

Magic Johnson’s basketball analysis is unparalleled.

OK, maybe if you’ve seen his Twitter account, you’d beg to differ on the matter of depth, but the Lakers legend knows a championship contender when he sees one.

Johnson sees the Warriors, who expect to have Steph Curry, Klay Thompson and Draymond Green all healthy in 2021, as the Western Conference’s biggest threat to his Lakers, who just captured their first Larry O’Brien Trophy in a decade thanks to the all-world tandem of LeBron James and Anthony Davis.

“The Lakers still will be the team to beat,” Johnson opined Monday morning on ESPN’s First Take. “If Golden State is healthy — and I’m sure they’re gonna make a good move, I don’t know if they will keep that second pick or not — they will be the second team.”

Johnson didn’t even slot the LA Clippers — supposedly the shiny new contender heading into this last season — in the third slot after their playoff collapse. Instead, they’re fourth behind the Denver Nuggets, who came back from a 3-1 deficit to beat them in the Western Conference semifinals before losing in the next round to the Lakers.

That No. 2 overall draft pick Johnson referenced could be the Warriors’ biggest card to play in bolstering their roster ahead of next season, expected to start in January or February.

Two-time Warrior and onetime Laker Matt Barnes pointed to that pick last week on ESPN’s The Jump as he identified the Warriors as a top-three team in the 2021 Western Conference.

“Whether they decide to move the pick and maybe package it with a young talent in possibly Andrew Wiggins to steal a superstar from somewhere, but they’re very high on Andrew Wiggins,” Barnes said. “So I feel that the Warriors are going to be right back where they left off, definitely in championship contention next year now that they have everyone healthy.”

Barnes’ fellow Jump panelist Richard Jefferson, who played with the Warriors for parts of two seasons before their championship run, highlighted Golden State’s backcourt of Curry and Thompson as a top-three duo across the league. He said that even without Kevin Durant, the Warriors should be able to get back to their fast-paced offense that took the league by storm in 2015 and 2016.

“They won a championship and then won 73 games and lost in the Finals,” Jefferson said, referring to the 2016 NBA Finals his (and James’) Cleveland Cavaliers won over the Warriors.

“That’s the style of basketball that they’re going to go to, where it’s a more balanced attack. You’re going to have a ton of guys that are able to contribute around Steph and Klay.”

The prognostications will get old this offseason — Barnes and Jefferson spoke before the Lakers even sealed their title Sunday. But dreaming of a full-strength Warriors vs. Lakers showdown should have basketball fans licking their chops waiting for Opening Night 2021, whenever it is.

Stanford, SJSU football teams cleared to practice on campus in Santa Clara County

Published

Stanford and San Jose State’s football teams got the clearance Tuesday that they have been seeking to return to their respective campuses to prepare for the 2020 football season.

Public health officials announced in an afternoon press conference that Santa Clara County has moved from the red tier into the less restrictive orange tier in the state’s coronavirus risk reduction order, paving the way for regular football practices. The county had placed strict guidelines on activities such as football to help stop the spread of COVID-19.

San Jose State plans to return home Wednesday afternoon after more than a week of training at Humboldt State.

Stanford said it will start on-campus practices Wednesday after starting fall training camp at Woodside High School in San Mateo County last Friday.

Meanwhile in the East Bay, Cal has been cleared by the City of Berkeley to practice with a group of 75 people — in line with the state public health department guideline — since Friday.

“We’re ecstatic,” San Jose State coach Brent Brennan said. “We’ve been up here for 10 days now. All these players, coaches and trainers have been displaced. It’s just another chapter of the crazy COVID story.”

Brennan said the Spartans would return by bus after morning practice and then take Thursday off to settle in at home. San Jose State plans to practice Friday on campus in preparation for its season opener, a home game Oct. 24 at 7:30 p.m. against Air Force.

Stanford is scheduled to open its football season Nov. 7 at Oregon. The Cardinal plays host to Colorado on Nov. 14 in its first home game in Santa Clara County.

“It’s been a process, our student-athletes understand it, that it’s not just for the county’s health but for their individual health for us to follow these guidelines and the best way to get to play the sport that we love,” coach David Shaw said Tuesday.

The clearance hinges on both programs following the public health directives completely, said James Williams, Santa Clara County counsel.

This is a breaking story. Check back for updates.

SAN JOSE — A 76-year-old man has died from injuries he suffered a month ago in a collision where a driver swerved into a bike lane while trying to pass another vehicle on Blossom Hill Road, according to San Jose police.

The bicyclist, who police said died Tuesday, has not formally identified by the Santa Clara County Medical Examiner-Coroner’s Office. His death marks the city’s 41st traffic death of the year — and the fourth in as many days — and he was the fifth bicyclist killed on a city roadway in 2020.

The collision was reported at 3:14 p.m. Sept. 4 in the westbound lanes of Blossom Hill Road near the northbound Highway 101 onramp. According to a preliminary investigation, a woman was driving west in a white 2013 Mazda CX-7 approaching Coyote Road when she tried to move around a vehicle to get to the freeway.

“The driver of the vehicle traveled into the bike lane and struck a 76-year-old male, who was riding his bicycle in the bike lane,” police stated in a news release.

The bicyclist was taken to a local hospital, where he died at about 8:30 a.m. Tuesday. The Mazda driver stopped at the scene and has not been arrested or cited. Police stated that an investigation is ongoing, after which traffic detectives will present their findings to county prosecutors, who will evaluate the case and determine if criminal charges will be filed.

Anyone with information about the Sept. 4 collision can contact traffic Detective Eliseo Malvido at 408-277-4654.

California moves to consider reparations for slavery

Avatar

Published

By DON THOMPSON

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — California lawmakers are setting up a task force to study and make recommendations for reparations to African Americans, particularly the descendants of slaves, as the nation struggles again with civil rights and unrest following the latest shooting of a Black man by police.

The state Senate supported creating the nine-member commission on a bipartisan 33-3 vote Saturday. The measure returns to the Assembly for a final vote before lawmakers adjourn for the year on Monday, though Assembly members overwhelmingly already approved an earlier version of the bill.

“Let’s be clear: Chattel slavery, both in California and across our nation, birthed a legacy of racial harm and inequity that continues to impact the conditions of Black life in California,” said Democratic Sen. Holly Mitchell of Los Angeles.

She cited disproportionate homelessness, unemployment, involvement in the criminal justice system, lower academic performance and higher health risks during the coronavirus pandemic.

Although California before the Civil War was officially a free state, Mitchell listed legal and judicial steps state officials took at the time to support slavery in Southern states while repressing Blacks.

The legislation would require the task force to conduct a detailed study of the impact of slavery in California and recommend to the Legislature by July 2023 the form of compensation that should be awarded, how it should be awarded, and who should be should be eligible for compensation.

The panel, which would start meeting no later than June 2021, could also recommend other forms of rehabilitation or redress.

In the last two years, Texas, New York, and Vermont have considered similar legislation, according to a legislative analysis. It said reparations could take the form of cash, housing assistance, lower tuition, forgiving student loans, job training or community investments, for instance.

Sen. Steven Bradford, a Democrat from Gardena who supported the bill, said he only wished it was more than a study.

He noted that Friday marked the 57th anniversary of the March on Washington and The Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s “I Have a Dream” speech.

“If the 40 acres and a mule that was promised to free slaves were delivered to the descendants of those slaves today, we would all be billionaires,” Bradford said. “I hear far too many people say, ‘Well, I didn’t own slaves, that was so long ago.’ Well, you inherit wealth — you can inherit the debt that you owe to African-Americans.”

____

The bill is AB3121.
