LASH Morning Drive: Friday, June 20

The Morning Drive offers you a healthy dose of LA sports talk from around the internet. A most excellent way to wake up feeling smart.

In today’s morning drive Joel Embiid’s foot causes a draft frenzy, Nick Young talks hometown discount and the Kings shave their playoff bears. Happy Friday, Los Angeles. You deserve it.


Good Day Quote of the Day, to start your day off right

It seems to me that trying to live without friends is like milking a bear to get cream for your morning coffee. It is a whole lot of trouble, and then not worth much after you get it.
―Zora Neale Hurston
