David Stern is widely considered the best commissioner in sports, but not just because he can toss off facile one-liners or because he is the supreme marketer, both of which are true. The NBA chief, who dropped in here last week as a part of a goodwill and fact-finding tour of some of the league's cities, is the best because more than caring about how his game looks, he also cares about what people think of the game. To wit, while football franchises have switched cities with the frequency of the changing of one's socks in recent years, Stern is actually troubled that one team, the then-Vancouver, now-Memphis Grizzlies, has moved since 1985, with the real possibility that a second team, the Charlotte Hornets, may pack up its hive for New Orleans after this season.

After adamant lobbying by several athletic directors in the Atlantic Coast Conference, including Maryland's Debbie Yow, the state of North Carolina's stranglehold on the ACC men's basketball tournament finally will be loosened over the next 10 years. The ACC yesterday released the future sites for the tournament up to 2010. MCI Center in Washington is scheduled to be the host in 2005. The ACC tournament previously appeared at the Capital Centre, later renamed USAir Arena, in Landover in 1987.

The insurrection began seven years ago, when the most dominant program in the history of the Atlantic Coast Conference and one of the best in the country saw its stranglehold slipping and its closest neighbors taking control of the kingdom known as Tobacco Road.The resurrection began before last season, when a high school phenom named Jerry Stackhouse made all the so-called recruiting gurus look foolish by picking their third choice -- the North Carolina Tar Heels -- as his first.The coronation came in the spring when, after getting its candles blown out at Sweet 16 parties and its ego bashed at Final Fours on a regular basis since 1982, North Carolina beat Michigan at the Louisiana Superdome to win the NCAA title.
