  • Salt Lake Tribune: Ice Cube on BIG3 basketball coming to SLC: 'I don't know if there's anything that's gonna roll into Utah that's gonna be better than this'

    By any measure, Ice Cube has already had an incredibly successful career in the entertainment industry, from his early days in the pioneering gangsta rap outfit N.W.A. to an acting resume that includes such credits as "Boyz n the Hood," "Friday," and "21 Jump Street."

    He'll be the first to acknowledge, though, that capturing that same degree of achievement as a sports impresario is proving elusive. With the BIG3 basketball league that he co-founded coming to Vivint Smart Home Arena in Salt Lake City this Saturday, though, the lifelong hoops lover is doing what he can to change that.

  • Salt Lake Tribune: Monson: New Utah Jazzman Mike Conley reveals himself -- and you'll like what he has to say

    Mike Conley will have the best season of his long NBA career this coming year with the Jazz. And because he'll have his best season, Donovan Mitchell will have his best, too. Maybe not statistically in either case, but in overall efficiency and effect on the team.

    That's a lot to say, given that those two have never played together, and it typically takes time for new teammates to jell, to understand one another's preferences and nuances. But such is the heavy impact the new point guard will have on Mitchell and on the Jazz, as a whole.

  • Salt Lake Tribune: Department of Justice lawyer defends herself over viral video about providing soap, toothbrushes to detained migrants

    It had been a long week for Sarah Fabian, a Justice Department lawyer many Americans now closely associate with the detention of child migrants, and at the end of it, she logged onto Facebook to compose a letter.

    "To my friends," she began. "I am not permitted to make any statements in any official capacity, so this is just a message from me, your friend. It's not a press release. I'm just hoping to explain myself to a small corner of the universe if I can."

    A bigger corner of the universe was demanding answers. Video footage of Fabian arguing in federal court last Tuesday that the federal government was not legally required to provide toothbrushes, soap or adequate sleep to detained migrant children went viral, eliciting outrage.

  • Salt Lake Tribune: Gehrke: We are better than the inhumane detention of children. We need our elected officials to start reflecting Utah values.

    A 2-year-old living in a cage, cared for by two strangers, just girls themselves with the oldest being 15. The toddler, who wasn't wearing a diaper and had snot smeared on his shirt, just wanted to be held all the time.

    A 4-year-old had matted hair because the 8-year-old caring for her couldn't convince her to take a shower. Five migrant children have died in custody. Many of the children are sleeping on concrete floors.

    A Justice Department lawyer argued before an appeals court last week that those concrete floors are safe and sanitary. This is the same lawyer who argued before incredulous judges -- one who had spent time in a Japanese internment camp in Arizona as a child -- that the children being imprisoned didn't need soap or toothpaste.

  • Salt Lake Tribune: Rudy Gobert Q&A: Jazz center talks about his latest NBA award, Mike Conley and next season

    After Rudy Gobert won his second Defensive Player of the Year award on Monday night -- and after about an hour of hoisting two DPOY trophies for photographers from just about every possible NBA outlet -- Gobert caught up with Tribune Jazz beat reporter Andy Larsen outside the Barker Hangar studio in Santa Monica, California. Their conversation follows:

    First of all, congratulations on the award. I saw Quin [Snyder] was there supporting you tonight, and I wanted to ask how you felt his system and his coaching contributed to your work.

    There's one guy who.

  • Salt Lake Tribune: Utah launches its first rare-liquor drawing with a hard-to-get Kentucky whiskey at a bargain price

    Utah's first drawing for hard-to-get liquors officially launched Tuesday, with the state offering bottles of Elmer T. Lee single barrel bourbon for $37.99.

    This award-winning whiskey is practically a steal. A 750 milliliter bottle is listed for as much as $300 online. It's one instance when the state's mandatory 88% markup on spirits favors consumers.

    Utahns now have seven days to visit the Utah Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control website -- https://abc.utah.gov -- to register for a chance to buy one of the 108 bottles the state received this year from the famed Buffalo Trace Distillery in Kentucky.

  • Salt Lake Tribune: Catherine Rampell: Those aren't the emails we should be looking for

    President Trump would like to make someone's email a central issue in the 2020 election, just as it was in 2016.

    I'm on board -- though I disagree with which someone we're talking about.

    We should be laser-focused on newly discovered private emails between a high-ranking census official and a GOP operative, and what they reveal about a long-term Republican conspiracy to rip political representation and financial resources from Democrats and people of color.

    Thanks to recent court filings, we've learned that the late Thomas Hofeller, a Republican strategist and gerrymandering savant, helped devise a scheme to rig the political system in favor of his party for years, perhaps decades.

  • Salt Lake Tribune: Rudy Gobert wins second consecutive Defensive Player of the Year award

    For the second consecutive year, Gobert was named as the league's best defensive player on Monday night at the NBA's award show in Los Angeles. Gobert is the second Jazzman to have won the award at least twice, along with Mark Eaton, who did so in 1988-89 and 1984-85. He's the 10th player in NBA history to have multiple DPOY trophies.

    "It's all my teammates. I say this all the time, but it's a team game," Gobert said. "To compete like we do, it's inspirational. It's just unbelievable."

    But other finalists Giannis Antetokounmpo and Paul George gave Gobert competition, as both led top-five defensive teams as well.

  • Salt Lake Tribune: Salt Lake City's mayor seeks a court order to stop the inland port from moving forward

    Salt Lake City Mayor Jackie Biskupski wants to stop a controversial development on a large swath of the city's northwest side from moving forward while the court considers her lawsuit.

    The move to seek an injunction was part of an amended lawsuit filed Monday against the governor, the state of Utah and the Inland Port Authority Board in the 3rd District Court. If granted, it would keep the port authority from spending or committing any of the city's property tax increment or sales tax to the project, as well as prohibit it from any planning, design or construction until the lawsuit is settled.

  • Deseret News: Rock On: BYU basketball coach -- who do you love?

    Things are looking decidedly cozy among two Beehive State basketball coaches.

    Newly appointed BYU coach Mark Pope and Utah State's Craig Smith crossed paths while recruiting in Arizona on June 21. Pope tweeted a side-by-side selfie, and called Smith "the great coach Smith."

    Conversely, the relationship between Utah coach Larry Krystkowiak and former BYU coach Dave Rose was strained after Krystkowiak canceled a 2016 game, citing player safety. Krystkowiak said at the time he had "no reason to believe this pattern of (dirty) behavior will change on its own."

    Speaking of patterns, the one between Pope and Smith isn't likely to change, either, now that the coaches have become besties.

  • Salt Lake Tribune: Utah's Rudy Gobert is up for his second straight NBA Defensive Player of the Year on Monday

    It feels like a long time ago now. Since then, the NBA has featured two months of playoff action, with matchups that pushed us to redefine what we think of each team. We've had league-changing trades -- like Anthony Davis to the Los Angeles Lakers, and Mike Conley to Utah -- and season-ending injuries to two of the league's defining stars.

    But on Monday night, we're asked to remember what happened during that regular season, as the NBA is hosting its third annual awards show at the Barker Hangar in Santa Monica, California.

    Rudy Gobert is once again up for the Defensive Player of the Year award, the one he won last year as well.

  • Salt Lake Tribune: Commentary: Get the government off my lawn

    Alisa was shocked, when opening her mail last summer, to find a letter from Roy City, giving her notice to appear in court for a misdemeanor charge. (Her name has been changed to protect her identity.) Alisa's own local government was prosecuting her for allowing dandelions to grow on her property -- an act that is prohibited by the municipal code.

    Just four months earlier, code enforcement officers had notified Alisa to fix the problem, and she quickly paid to have the area cut and sprayed -- but, as is common with tedious weeds, the dandelions eventually sprouted their way back, resisting the chemicals intended to kill them off permanently.

  • Salt Lake Tribune: The Jazz needed to be bold this offseason and they have been. Was the cost worth it?

    So, come July 6, the Jazz's trade with the Grizzlies will be official, Mike Conley will be the toast of the local fandom, and those players either sent to Memphis in exchange or allowed to leave in free agency as a result will be remembered fondly for their roles in ushering in this new era of on-court prosperity.

    Ricky Rubio was a steady and beloved locker room presence. Jae Crowder's fiery, passionate aggression gave the team a much-needed edginess. Kyle Korver's second stint in the Beehive State revived latent loyalties to the sharpshooter. And while we hardly got to know Grayson Allen, his raw abilities earned him a faction of devoted die-hards.
