Pau Gasol #16 of the Los Angeles Lakers is consoled by Kobe Bryant after coming out of the game in the second half against the San Antonio Spurs during Game Four of the Western Conference Quarterfinals of the 2013 NBA Playoffs at Staples Center on April 28, 2013 in Los Angeles, California. The Spurs defeated the Lakers 103-82.

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.  

NBA center Jason Collins came out Monday, and at first the reaction was nothing but positive. Kobe Bryant, Bill Clinton and several other big names sent out tweets in support, but now other opinions are starting to come in.

For a while there was the thought that the first gay player would come out in the NFL. There was even a rumor there'd be four guys coming out at once, but it didn't happen. Now there's a former NFL player that thinks the league isn't ready.

The Lakers got swept by the San Antonio Spurs, and the games weren't even close. Some fans have said that this is the worse Lakers season they have ever been through. Is that true?

The Clippers lost to the Grizzlies in Staples Center last night, and they're facing elimination Friday when the series shifts to Memphis. Plus, they might be without one of their best players
