Former Laker Coach Bill Sharman Is This Year’s Grand Marshal

In an 11-year NBA career played mostly with the Boston Celtics, Sharman was voted to the All-NBA First or Second Team seven times, and he played in eight NBA All-Star Games. He teamed with Bob Cousy to form one of the most formidable backcourts in league history, helping the Celtics to four championships. After retiring as a player in 1961, Sharman distinguished himself as a coach, the only one to win championships in three professional leagues – the American Basketball League, the American Basketball Association and the NBA. After guiding the 1971-72 Los Angeles Lakers to the best regular-season record (69-13) in NBA history (until 1995-96), Sharman remained coach of the Lakers until 1976. He then became the Lakers’ general manager and was engineer of the 1980 Showtime teams featuring Magic Johnson and Kareem Abdul Jabbar. He was the Lakers team president from 1982 to 1988, and he currently holds the position of special consultant to the Lakers. Inducted into the NBA Hall of Fame in 1976 as a player, Sharman became the third person to make the NBA Hall of Fame as both a player and coach when he was inducted into the NBA Hall of Fame as a coach in September 2004. As a player, coach, general manager and consultant, he has earned 15 championship rings, more than any former...

Another successful season sought by St. Bernard boys basketball team

After reaching the Division IV-AA finals of the California Interscholastic Federation last season, the St. Bernard High School boys basketball team hopes to make another successful run in the 2004-05 season. The Vikings had a 20-12 overall record last season and finished second in the Del Rey League, behind Bishop Montgomery High School. St. Bernard continued its strong performance in the playoffs, reaching the Division IV-AA finals and ending the year after an 80-68 loss to San Joaquin Memorial in the first round of the Division IV state playoffs. The Vikings’ achievements last season helped head coach Robert Alaniz — who returns this year for his seventh season — earn the Coach of the Year award for Division IV-AA. St. Bernard opened the new season ranked tenth by the Daily Breeze, and began with a 55-40 victory at Narbonne High Tuesday, November 30th. St. Bernard then lost 78-65 to Diamond Ranch Friday, December 3rd, but picked up a 60-57 win over Mira Costa in the first round of the El Segundo Kiwanis Classic Monday, December 6th. Bob Cody, St. Bernard assistant coach, said this year the team hopes to get another shot at the Division IV-AA championship with the help of five key returning players, including four seniors. “We should do well, based on the past,” Cody said. The top returning senior Vikings on the roster include Chris Ceballos,...
