ARECENT column on the high pay and low accomplishment of US Airways boss Stephen M. Wolf generated a ton of response, mostly from rank-and-file employees at the bankrupt airline eager to join the Wolf abuse. No surprise there.

So, it's not surprising that Scott, in his third year as coach of the New Jersey Nets and making his second straight trip to the NBA Finals, has managed to feel comfortable in a place just outside the limelight. "Do I get enough respect? I thought I got enough respect as a player," said Scott before last night's Game 5 against the San Antonio Spurs.

David N. Siegel, who led a post-Sept. 11 restructuring at Cendant Corp.'s Avis Rent A Car unit, was named chief executive of US Airways Group Inc. yesterday as the airline struggles to rebuild after its failed merger with United Airlines and a year of record losses. Stephen M. Wolf, who has led the Arlington, Va.-based airline since Rakesh Gangwal unexpectedly resigned as president and chief executive in November, will remain as chairman. However, the airline said, Wolf, 60, will no longer have a hand in day-to-day operations and Siegel - unlike his predecessor - will report directly to the board, rather than to Wolf.
