LASH Morning Drive: Thursday, June 12


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

In today’s morning drive Julius Randle has a red flag, Shelly and Donald go to court to find out they’re going back to court and the Kings can’t close the girl at the bar. And Kurt Rambis. Enjoy, Los Angeles. You deserve it.

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

“Forget yesterday – it has already forgotten you. Don’t sweat tomorrow – you haven’t even met. Instead, open your eyes and your heart to a truly precious gift – today.” -Steve Maraboli
