At 12 days and counting, the length of coverage has already run longer than anyone's idea of a state funeral. Today, the degree of saturation of TV coverage on the death of Michael Jackson reaches the boiling point. All of the major networks and cable channels will be offering live coverage of the Jackson memorial service starting at 1 p.m. at the Staples center in Los Angeles. NBC had looked as if it would skip live coverage and go only with a one-hour prime-time special Tuesday night.

There's not been a lot to cheer about for Maryland basketball fans the past couple of years -- most notably two seasons without a postseason invitation and Terrell Stoglin's misguided decision-making off the court that recently ended the college career of last season's top scorer in the ACC. Things are going to get better in College Park , but for those Terps fans trying to get their fix of hoops and happiness, Steve Blake is providing a...

LOS ANGELES - Los Angeles police failed to move swiftly when violence erupted after the Lakers won the NBA title, despite their own confidential plan calling for an immediate show of overwhelming force if there was trouble. The confidential LAPD plan, dated June 5 and obtained Friday by the Los Angeles Daily News, noted that there was a high potential for violence and that lawlessness should be dealt with quickly to avoid escalation. "The early moments of the civil disorder are critical," according to the department's Lakers Victory Operations Plan 2000.

Remember the Heat routing the Lakers in Los Angeles on Christmas? Remember Kobe Bryant promising to kick rear ends at practice, announcing: "You don't just have two rings and say we're satisfied with what we've got. … I'm not rolling with that. " Remember when the Spurs ran over them three days later in San Antonio? Remember the Celtics coming into the Staples Center on Jan. 30 and rocking the Lakers' world too, by which time half the local talk-show hosts were on medication?

1 Loyola live: The Peacocks visit the Greyhounds (Saint Peter's-Loyola, 7 p.m., MASN). Seems all those feathers would cut down on fast-break opportunities. 2 Spicing it up: During the Wizards-Lakers game (10:30 p.m., TNT) watch for people in the stands eating a new dish at Staples Center - Kung Pau Gasol chicken. 3 Best of five: Don't get confused: It's a Thursday but the second round of the Bob Hope Chrysler Classic (3 p.m., Golf Channel) because they play five rounds. 4 Nick the Stick: Nick Markakis meets the press at noon to discuss his new contract and the challenges facing the new president.

LOS ANGELES - There are NBA All-Star games and then there are NBA All-Star games played in Tinsel Town, which means that whatever rules usually apply go out the window. There was Los Angeles Lakers center Shaquille O'Neal playing point guard, Lakers guard Kobe Bryant missing the team photo, the Orlando Magic's Tracy McGrady wearing a blue shoe and a red shoe, and a marriage proposal to talk-show host Star Jones. Ho-hum. Just another day in La-La Land. At the end of the day, O'Neal's brute strength gave the Western All-Stars a 136-132 victory over the Eastern Conference last night at Staples Center.

THE controversy that rocked the Los Angeles Times this fall raises a host of profound issues at the core of journalism -- issues that have been lost in the overheated, often ad hominem, rhetoric condemning Los Angeles Times management for directing its news staff to produce a magazine on the city's new sports arena, the Staples Center, and then splitting the $2 million in ad revenues raised by the project.In newspaper journalism, in theory at least, the principles of detachment and objectivity still govern, and there is a general feeling that journalists should keep at arms-length distance from their subjects.

CREDIBILITY. Integrity. Those bulwarks of journalism are qualities that readers expect to define the Los Angeles Times. But some are questioning the newspaper's adherence to those values in light of disclosures that revenue from the Oct. 10 Los Angeles Times Magazine were shared with the new Staples Center arena, the sole subject of that issue.The profit-sharing arrangement, denounced by the newspaper's journalists as well as many readers, was not known to the magazines writers and editors who produced the issue, and they were the most profoundly distressed to learn of the deal.

LOS ANGELES - A certain national sports weekly magazine suggested recently that anyone who thought an Eastern team could win a game off the Los Angeles Lakers in the NBA championship series should be kept away from heavy machinery. The Lakers may still roll to a second straight title, but after the Philadelphia 76ers' performance in Game 1 of the NBA Finals, the Sixers and their backers might be allowed back around the tractor again. The Lakers got their first serious challenge of the postseason last night, as the Sixers squandered a 15-point lead in the third quarter and fell behind by five in overtime before pulling out a 107-101 victory at Staples Center.

LOS ANGELES - On the surface, things were normal here in the City of Angels yesterday. A blanket of smog hung over the San Fernando Valley. Traffic came to a crawl on the Santa Monica Freeway. Actresses got face lifts. But underneath the calm veneer, the city's civic confidence shook like a palm tree in a 7.0 Richter scale earthquake, all thanks to the end of the 19-game regular- and postseason win streak of their mighty Lakers, in Game 1 of the NBA championship series Wednesday night.
