Bernard Bliden affixed the blue label to the downtown map, marking his old stomping grounds. It was just a piece of paper scrawled with his last name, but Bliden felt a sense of pride placing it there at the corner of Lombard and Spring streets - the heart of his old Jewish neighborhood. "It was a phenomenal place," he said. "We always had friends in and out of the house. A family friend lived around the corner and would always make this big, huge apple cake. Things like that were so great."

Rockets star Tracy McGrady made his season debut in a 107-96 win over the Pistons on Tuesday, about nine months after undergoing microfracture surgery on his left knee. Coach Rick Adelman announced the decision to play McGrady about an hour before tipoff. He said McGrady would play about seven minutes, all in the first half, and he did. "It's been so long since I've played, it was just a great feeling to be back on the court," McGrady said. "Just to get up and down the court with these guys and to be back out there competing is what I missed."
