West Coast fans who have long suspected an East Coast bias from Bristol, Conn.-based ESPN can begin to rest easier, because the cable sports giant is on track to open by spring 2009 a full-fledged broadcast production facility across from Staples Center.

The five-story ESPN building that is taking shape will house an ESPN Zone restaurant on the first two floors and two television production studios with digital control rooms on upper floors. One studio will become home for the late-night edition of its signature “SportsCenter” that now is produced on the busy Bristol campus. ESPN also will house its 710 radio station studios next door in an office building now under construction.

“The scope of this project makes sense on a lot of different levels,” said ESPN President George W. Bodenheimer, who was in town last week. “And, frankly, having toured it today, I feel very good about our decision to come out here.”

Bodenheimer declined to state the cost of the new building. But, during a groundbreaking two years ago for the entertainment district that will surround Staples Center, television industry insiders speculated that the building would cost ESPN about $100 million.

One broadcast industry engineer recently estimated the cost of digital technology for the West Coast television studio at between $35 million and $45 million, with related construction costs of about $20 million – not including the restaurant, which will open late next year.

ESPN executives are still wrestling with how to introduce fans to a bicoastal “SportsCenter,” with early shows originating in Bristol and the late edition coming from L.A. The network regularly incorporates feeds from studios in New York City, Washington and Charlotte, N.C., but the show’s hosts always have been in Bristol.

ESPN hopes to make the switch in a manner that won’t confuse viewers. For example, there’s a good chance that the two studios will be identical in appearance, and ESPN must decide if broadcasts will be regularly labeled as “live from Los Angeles.”

LOS ANGELES(AP) The Los Angeles Lakers battled like crazy to put the short-handed Phoenix Suns away.

That's precisely what Kobe Bryant expected they would have to do.

Pau Gasol scored 28 points, Bryant had seven of his 18 in the last 6 1/2 minutes, and the Western Conference-leading Lakers struggled to a 115-110 victory Wednesday night.
Andrew Bynum added 17 points and 11 rebounds, Sasha Vujacic scored a season-high 15 points and Derek Fisher had 13 for the Lakers (18-3), who were coming off a lethargic 113-101 loss at Sacramento on Tuesday night and didn't clinch this victory until the final minute.

The Suns (13-10) played without Raja Bell, Boris Diaw and rookie Sean Singletary, traded to Charlotte earlier Wednesday for Jason Richardson, Jared Dudley and a 2010 second-round pick.
Phoenix also was without former Lakers star Shaquille O'Neal, whose 92-year-old great-grandmother died this week. O'Neal was in New Jersey for funeral services and hopes to return in time to play Friday night against Orlando. O'Neal scored 35 points Tuesday night - his most in nearly three years - in a 125-110 victory over Milwaukee.

"That's what always happens when a team has eight players, nine players,'' Bryant said. "They always come out with a lot of energy. We did a good job down the stretch.''

The Lakers held off the Suns by making 17 of 22 foul shots in the fourth quarter including eight of 10 in the last 30 seconds. But their defensive difficulties continued - they've allowed the opposition to score 100 or more points in seven of their last 10 games.

"Our record is great,'' Bynum said. "(But) the way we're playing, we're not going to beat the good teams.''

When done, figure out WPM and ACCURACY.
