FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. - Former Miami Heat star Alonzo Mourning is scheduled to get a new kidney today, not from one of the 200 or so fans or strangers who offered him one of theirs, but from a cousin who is a good match. "Alonzo will receive his kidney from a family member and wants to thank all those who offered to donate a kidney to him for their generosity," said Mourning's agent Jeffrey Wechsler, in a written statement yesterday. "He appreciates all the well wishes and encouragement he's received from fans all around the world and asks that the public respect his privacy at this time."

FIVE TOP ROOKIES1. Jamal Mashburn, Dallas Mavericks -- Playing with the worst team in the NBA does have its advantages. Mashburn should win Rookie of the Year honors.2. Chris Webber, Golden State Warriors -- Because of injuries to teammates, he could find himself carrying too much of a load.3. Isaiah "J. R." Rider, Minnesota Timberwolves -- Perhaps the most talented rookie, but could face problems playing alongside Chuck Person and Christian Laettner.4. Anfernee Hardaway, Orlando Magic -- To some, the second coming of Magic Johnson.

The Washington Bullets took a long, hard look yesterday at Tom Gugliotta, North Carolina State's all-conference forward who, if the June 24 NBA draft goes as predicted, could become their choice with the sixth pick in the first round.Gugliotta might not fill the team's prime need for an intimidating power forward, but the 6-foot-10, 245-pound native of Huntington, N.Y., has exhibited the shooting touch, passing skills and rebounding mentality to play either forward position.Known as "Gugs" by his Wolfpack teammates, he worked out at Bowie State yesterday with head coach Wes Unseld and assistants Bill Blair and Jeff Bzdelik putting him through agility drills.

MIAMI - Alonzo Mourning will not be guarding the basket for the Miami Heat this season. Instead, the 6-foot-10 muscular All-Star and Olympian will be taking on an even greater challenge. Speaking publicly for the first time since a routine team physical indicated a kidney ailment two weeks ago, Mourning yesterday offered an upbeat personal outlook for what has turned into a downcast period for a team that had hopes of giving South Florida its first NBA championship. Flanked by coach Pat Riley, two renowned kidney specialists and super-agent David Falk, Mourning revealed he is suffering from an advanced form of focal glomeruloslerosis, a malfunction of the kidney's waste-filtering mechanism.

SYDNEY, Australia - He didn't have enough time to settle his feet, square up and shoot. If he had, Sarunas Jasikevicius, the former University of Maryland basketball star, might well have nailed the 23-foot jumper he needed to make to complete one of the biggest upsets in Olympic history last night. "Unfortunately, I just had enough time to throw up a prayer," Jasikevicius said. "That was a one-in-a-million shot." Had it gone in, a young Lithuanian team without a single player drawing an NBA paycheck would have beaten the formidable collection of NBA stars who make up the United States team, with Jasikevicius improbably leading the way. "We had them, no question about it," Jasikevicius said some 12 hours later, before an afternoon practice today in Sydney.

MIAMI - Alonzo Mourning insisted his supremacy over fellow Georgetown alum Patrick Ewing yesterday wasn't responsible for the Miami Heat's tense 87-83 victory over the New York Knicks in the opener of their best-of-seven Eastern Conference semifinal series. "This matchup that you all are calling this one-on-one matchup, a lot of it is built on our friendship and the competitiveness of the series historically," Mourning said. "It's pretty much a team thing when you get into it." 'Zo much for modesty.

In the market for an old, tarnished, less than durable and useless Penny?If you're an NBA owner and that's what you're looking for you might want to call Orlando Magic owner Rich DeVos. That's because his once-valued Penny -- Penny Hardaway -- might have just worn out his welcome with a whiny, selfish tirade after Orlando was eliminated by Philadelphia in the first round of the Eastern Conference playoffs.It seems Hardaway got a bit upset after getting criticized for shooting 35.1 percent for the series, including a 3-for 17 outing in the elimination game against the Philadelphia 76ers.

NEW YORK -- It took nearly the end of the fourth game before the eruption that everyone expected occurred between the New York Knicks and the Miami Heat. And for the second year in a row, these bitter rivals will likely play a decisive game with key players missing.The New York Knicks already had the game in hand, an eventual 90-85 win. But with 1.4 seconds left Larry Johnson and Alonzo Mourning -- once teammates with the Charlotte Hornets -- exchanged punches near the home team's bench that will likely force both to miss Sunday's Game 5 in Miami.

CHICAGO -- In a game in which artistry and accuracy took the night off, no one was spared. Not the Miami Heat. Not the Chicago Bulls. Not even Michael Jordan. And certainly not the record book.The Bulls and Heat combined to score 143 points, the lowest in a playoff game since the NBA instituted the shot clock four decades ago. And after the Bulls managed a 75-68 victory last night to take a 2-0 lead in the Eastern Conference finals, the teams shared something else, too:Equal blame."Bad," said the Heat's Tim Hardaway.

BOWIE -- In a final attempt to sign No. 1 draft choice Tom Gugliotta, Washington Bullets general manager John Nash yesterday compared the team's five-year $10.725 million offer made to the North Carolina State forward to the five-year, $7.3 million dollar deal Stanford forward Adam Keefe signed with the Atlanta Hawks on Friday.Keefe, the 10th player chosen in the 1992 NBA draft and the first lottery pick to sign, was once thought to be the Bullets' first choice among the blue-chip players available with their sixth pick.

The more things change, the more they seem to stay the same.Not a terribly original thought, but here we are into mid-May and the NBA playoffs appear headed on precisely the exact track that they were on last year at this time.That is, another coronation of the Chicago Bulls as league champion. NBC analyst Matt Guokas has heard all the talk about how the Bulls seem vulnerable and prime to be taken this year, but they still look like winners to him."They've shown it's (the playoffs) been more of a struggle.
