LOS ANGELES - There are days when Karl Malone's outlook is dictated by emotion and days when his future is beholden to his health. When those elements conspired recently, Malone took a deep breath and decided his basketball career was over. The magnetic resonance imaging of his right knee seemed to tell him as much, and when Malone considered the chaos engulfing the Los Angeles Lakers, he figured it was time to retire. So he told friends exactly that while attending a memorial for Bobbye Sloan - the wife of Utah Jazz coach Jerry Sloan - last week in McLeansboro, Ill. But Malone's outlook changed a few days later when doctors, performing an arthroscopic procedure, discovered the knee was in better shape than believed and could be 100 percent again.

LOS ANGELES - It was only the first game of the NBA Western Conference finals, yet the Portland Trail Blazers looked like a team fighting desperately to survive. Coach Mike Dunleavy all but admitted that he had no answer for league Most Valuable Player Shaquille O'Neal, instituting an if-you-can't-beat-him-foul-him strategy that was almost as ineffective as it was embarrassing. Seven-foot center Arvydas Sabonis played 33 minutes and had the same number of points as the Blazers have victories in this much-anticipated best-of-seven series - which resumes tonight with Game2 at the Staples Center.

Three dozen seniors gathered in Phoenix this past week for the NBA's annual scouting combine. Junior Burrough, a 6-foot-10 inside forward from Virginia, impressed with a soft shooting touch.Other scouts like Sherell Ford, a guard with leaping ability from Illinois-Chicago.None, however, will be drafted ahead of the top underclassmen who've made themselves eligible, such as Maryland's Joe Smith and Arkansas' Corliss Williamson.But even Williamson and Smith take a back seat to the player who would be the consensus No. 1 pick if he declared: Wake Forest's Tim Duncan.

LANDOVER -- The Washington Bullets should stop trying to build a team if, indeed, that's what they've been attempting to do since the dawning of the last decade of the century and millenium.The organization is not up to the task, obviously, if one of the standard definitions of the word team is used: a group of people working together in a coordinated effort.Oh, the Bullets can fool you from time to time, like last night when they stuck it to the Orlando Magic, 123-117, the club with the best record (56-24)
