Commenting on the Lakers’ ability to play in the series when so many
players were injured, Los Angeles Laker Dwight Howard remarked that the players were
not about “to throw in the white flag.”  Thanks to “My ol’ pal” who heard this gem on the 5:00 pm local L.A. news.  It is a mash up of “throw in the towel” and “wave the white flag”, both meaning to surrender.  Perhaps a white towel (a common sight with athletes) was also in the confusion.
