WASHINGTON - All the rumors swirling around MCI Center were confirmed last night, as the Wizards dealt Wisconsin guard Devin Harris and forwards Jerry Stackhouse and Christian Laettner to the Dallas Mavericks for forward Antawn Jamison and cash considerations. The Wizards selected Harris, the 2003-04 Big Ten Player of the Year, as the No. 5 pick in the NBA draft. With the deal, the Wizards hope to cash in this season on talent, rather than wait for it to develop. The Wizards suffered through a 37-45 season with one of the youngest teams in the league as nine Wizards had two or fewer years of NBA experience.

Let's take a look at the league, division by division: Atlantic Call this the gang that can't shoot straight, as no team has seen fit to stick its head much above .500. The New Jersey Nets, the two-time defending Eastern Conference champions, have been the biggest surprise, stumbling about, what with three of their top six (Jason Kidd, Kenyon Martin and Lucious Harris) hobbled with injuries, and the retirement of Alonzo Mourning.

You might find them on TVTexas football fans had better hope that their team has more on the ball than the editors of the school's athletic department magazine, Stampede.In its most recent issue, the magazine devoted four pages to a list of "missing" lettermen and urged readers to contact the school if they had any knowledge of the ex-Longhorns' whereabouts.Included on the list of the missing: Cleveland Browns running back Eric Metcalf, New England Patriots center Gene Chilton and pitcher Bruce Ruffin of the Philadelphia Phillies.

It's sheer audacity, bordering on madness, to suggest that the Los Angeles Lakers can win a fourth straight NBA title after emerging from a Christmas Day home loss to the Sacramento Kings with an 11-19 record. Isn't it? How in the world could the Lakers conceive of another victory parade down the streets of Los Angeles when they were supposedly left on the roadside such a short time ago? "The most difficult thing is not going to be able to get one victory against the Lakers, but to get four victories against the Lakers," said ABC/ESPN analyst Bill Walton.

When someone suggests that his Knicks have the best chance of displacing the two-time defending champion Chicago Bulls, it almost makes New York coach Pat Riley's lacquered hair stand on end."It's almost a stupid statement to say this team could come together and win a championship," said Riley, as his team prepared to play host to the Washington Bullets at Madison Square Garden tonight. "You don't know what it takes to win those things."Riley knows firsthand, having won four NBA titles with the Los Angeles Lakers in the 1980s.
