"He said, `Women are just not smart enough to do this job,' " Burns recalled. "I knew as soon as the words came out of his mouth - `women cannot be pilots' - that I wanted to be an airline captain immediately."

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.
