EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. - At best, Byron Scott was the fourth option on the Los Angeles Lakers' "Showtime" teams of the 1980s, behind Hall of Famers Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Magic Johnson and James Worthy. 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.

GALVESTON, Texas -- With videotapes, flip-charts, enlargements of once-secret memos and thousands of tTC documents, armies of lawyers in U.S. District Court in Galveston are re-enacting the airline fare war of 1992.In an elegantly restored courtroom with carved wooden panels and silk drapes, Continental Airlines and Northwest Airlines are trying to draw blood, demonstrating that American Airlines engaged in "predatory pricing." That means setting fares so low that American would lose money, but so would its weaker rivals, who might be forced out of business.

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.
