Kobe Bryant #24 of the Los Angeles Lakers appears to injure himself against the Golden State Warriors in the third quarter at Staples Center on April 12, 2013 in Los Angeles, California. The Lakers defeated the Warriors 118-116.

It's time for our weekly romp through sports with Andy and Brian Kamenetzky. They've covered the L.A. sports scene for over a decade for the Times and ESPN.  

The NBA's regular season ends tonight. There's one playoff spot left to be decided and it's between the Lakers and the Utah Jazz. Kobe is out with a torn Achilles, and now Steve Nash is out, too. What will this mean for their chances? 

The dual bombing at the Boston Marathon was a terrifying and tragic event and, understandably, people are very nervous. Both the Bruins and Celtics cancelled games for Monday night, and the Sox played last night in Cleveland. Here in LA, they've upped security for Dodgers games. How might this affect future sporting events in LA?

Legendary broadcaster Pat Summerall died yesterday. He was one of the iconic voices in broadcast football, but also events like the US Open and the Masters. What legacy does he leave behind? How will he be remembered?
