LANDOVER -- There are a few people in this world for whom life seems to bend. They don't get stuck in traffic. They find hundred-dollar bills in the street. They guess right on the multiple-choice questions. Their clothes always look pressed. They use the right adjectives. Good things happen. Always, always.They are the fortunate. The blessed. Their lives take on a powerful, unsubstantiated momentum. Their obstacles melt away. They float, not walk. They dance, not stumble. How else do we explain Ed Sullivan?

For Sacramento Kings forward Walt Williams, it was a move intended to make him a more versatile player. But when Williams increased his weight to 250 pounds last season -- heavier than Alonzo Mourning, Patrick Ewing and David Robinson -- all it did was hinder his progress from the previous season, when he made the All-Rookie team."

The Redeem Team obviously wasn't as glamorous as its Dream Team predecessors; neither did it enjoy what amounted to the wire-to-wire triumphal procession that Michael Jordan and company had in Barcelona 16 years ago. But, as shocking as the suggestion might be, the 2008 version of the U.S. national basketball team would have beaten the 1992 squad that has been canonized over the years - at least in the international arena. Where the Dream Team had advantages are obvious. The Dreamers had two 7-footers (Patrick Ewing and David Robinson)

The last time a big man had his way this easily on the grounds of the Naval Academy, David Robinson was taking the Midshipmen to the Elite Eight. Unfortunately for Navy's basketball team, the inside force belonged to Georgetown last night. The Mids had no answer for Roy Hibbert, a 7-foot-2 sophomore whose 20 points, seven rebounds and four blocks led the Hoyas to a 72-49 victory at Alumni Hall in the season opener for both teams. "My teammates know I'm going to catch the ball now. Last year, I fumbled it," said Hibbert, who was eager to visit the campus where "The Admiral" ruled two decades ago. "I am a David Robinson fan. We talked about that this morning."

SAN ANTONIO - The other day, David Robinson was asked about his willingness over the years to defer to Tim Duncan as leader of the San Antonio Spurs. Given the track record of players his age, 37, who perhaps stayed too long at the party and were unwilling to get off the dance floor when it was time, the question wasn't all that far-fetched. Yet, Robinson faced the questioner with a look that said, "Duh, isn't that what I'm supposed to do?" "Right from the get-go, I knew his [Duncan's]

In the long term, Sitapha Savane's objective is to become president of his native Senegal, an attainable aim for a young man who has gathered innumerable insights through the political activism of his family. He has already accomplished his short-term goal: to become chairman of the boards at the U.S. Naval Academy. And the chairman of shot rejections. And scoring. And, perhaps most importantly for his future, leadership. In his final season, the 6-foot-8 center has emerged as the undaunted point man for the Midshipmen, now 22-5 after an 0-3 start and plunging into the Patriot League tournament this weekend as a co-favorite to reach the NCAA tournament field.
