BOSTON -- Finally, after almost 2 1/2 hours, it was time for Larry Bird to say thank you and goodbye. "I've been very fortunate," he began, but the crowd wasn't ready for the last act of this remarkable retirement party."

If Len Bias could attend his own Hall of Fame ceremony on Friday , he'd do so as a 50-year-old man. That's a heck of a thing to wrap your head around if, like me, you grew up as an obsessed ACC basketball fan in the 1980s. Lenny has lived as an idea about what could have been for so long, it's strange to think of him as an actual person. Every generation has its touchstones. For my parents, it was the Kennedy assassination. People my age remember watching from their elementary school classrooms as the Challenger exploded and later on, 9/11.

BOSTON -- After three decades of bull and bluster, the deal announced Thursday to build a new Boston Garden began streaking toward reality on a warm Sunday in March when, fittingly, the Celtics were at home, destroying the Atlanta Hawks.While Larry Bird was busy scoring 20 points, Japanese bankers were watching the game from the hard plastic seats of the decrepit North End landmark that is scheduled to be replaced in 1995.Earlier in the day, officials from Toyo Trust & Banking Co. of Tokyo had toured the Garden, seen the obstructed views during a Harlem Globetrotters game and met with Garden officials, including Jeremy Jacobs, chairman of Delaware North Cos., which owns the Garden, and Garden president Larry Moulter.

Associated Press WALTHAM, Mass. — The original Boston Garden is long gone, and so is the fear in opponents' eyes when they play the Celtics on their home floor. So don't expect the Magic to be too intimidated in Games 3 and 4 of the Eastern Conference finals. "We've won there before, and there's no reason we can't do it again," Magic forward Rashard Lewis said Friday. "Boston beat us twice on our court. Why can't we do it to them?" The Celtics took the first two games in Orlando, earning a chance to advance without having to leave town again.

"Celtic Pride" is about men who know what's important in life: not careers, which they've blown, or families, which they've abandoned, or happiness, which eludes them forever. No, what's truly important is the success of 12 mercenary millionaires playing a game for sheer profit and shoe company commercials. Is this a great country or what?The movie, which makes some nifty points about the irrationality of passion devoted to professional athletics, is only semi-funny, however, and only semi-convincing.

Hall of Fame baseball manager Leo Durocher once said that nice guys finish last. But sometimes they don't even get to finish the season. Case in point: Lawton Dean, an 80-year-old usher for the Double-A Birmingham Barons. Make that former usher. The Birmingham (Ala.) News reported this month that Dean lost his job April 11 after he retrieved a ball that Chicago White Sox prospect Joe Borchard hit over the center-field fence for an 11th-inning victory. Dean asked for permission to give the ball to Borchard as a keepsake, but Barons president and general manager Tony Ensor told him it was against club rules.

In yesterday's Today section, the incorrect network for the television show "The Practice" was mentioned in a headline. The new legal drama appears on ABC; its local affiliate is WMAR (Channel 2).The Sun regrets the error."The Practice" is an anti-lawyer courtroom drama that sides with the little guy against corporate America, but ultimately votes conservative.Sound like a bundle of contradictions? It is, but what a pretty package to look at and what a fine piece of work by producer David E. Kelley ("Picket Fences" and "Chicago Hope")
