LANDOVER -- This time a year ago, then-Charlotte Hornets head coach Dick Harter was trying to rid his team of Muggsy Bogues, a 5-foot-3 point guard whom he regarded as a defensive liability.But Bogues, a favorite of Hornets owner George Shinn, outlasted Harter and now is considered one of Charlotte's most valuable basketball properties."I know Denver was real interested in Muggsy to run their offense before they drafted Chris Jackson," said the Hornets' new coach, Gene Littles. "Muggsy has become very marketable for teams who like to run."

SEATTLE -- They were back home, in a building where they had lost just five games this season. They had not lost three in a row all year. Coach George Karl kept promising that his team was getting close, and one figured that the Seattle SuperSonics, after an encouraging Game 2, could well be on the verge of playing their best game of this NBA Finals.Guess again. The Chicago Bulls came out having what Karl described as "killer eyes." And in a series where they have yet to play their best ball, the Bulls came awfully close last night as they built a 22-point first-half lead on the way to a 108-86 victory.

BOWIE -- With his struggling Washington Bullets (22-47) having lost five straight and all but guaranteed themselves a 1992 lottery selection, coach Wes Unseld yesterday accused an unspecified number of his players 14l of competing for contracts rather than concentrating on basketball.After holding a scrimmage at Bowie State yesterday in preparation for tonight's game with the Indiana Pacers at the Capital Centre, Unseld would not name his allegedly distracted players, but said that he has met privately in the past few weeks with each of them.

The Washington Bullets' tampering charge against the New York Knicks, who tended a six-year, $17.061 million offer sheet to veteran forward Harvey Grant, will be reviewed by NBA special master Merrell E. Clark Jr. in New York today, with a ruling likely by Thursday.At issue is whether the Knicks made the offer before July 1, the earliest date a restricted free agent such as Grant may be approached by another team.The Bullets contend Grant's agent, Jim Sexton of Memphis, Tenn., was contacted by the Knicks before July 1. The Knicks deny the charge.

LANDOVER -- Charles Barkley dedicated the Philadelphia 76ers' game with the Washington Bullets at the Capital Centre last night to suspended teammate Jayson Williams, who had come to his aid in Thursday night's tangle with the Charlotte Hornets' J.R. Reid.So what if Barkley spelled Jayson's name on his sneakers without a 'Y.' He delivered his message emphatically, as he scored 33 points and grabbed 11 rebounds to defeat the Bullets, before another sellout of 18,756."Jayson protected my rear, I owed it to him," said Barkley of his tribute to the second-year forward who was suspended for two games and fined $10,000 for punching Reid.

SHEPHERDSTOWN, W. Va. -- Here are some of the major problems facing coach Wes Unseld when he assembles his 1992-93 Washington Bullets tomorrow for their first full-scale preseason scrimmage at Shepherd College:* His starting center, Pervis Elli- son, is a true power forward.* His power forward, Harvey Grant, is a legitimate small forward.* His small forward, Larry Stewart, lacks the finesse for the position and plays more like a power forward.* His point guard, Michael Adams, is most effective as a shooting guard.

1. DUNBAR, 1982-83Record: 31-0.Coach: Bob Wade.The first of three national champions at Dunbar, it was also the best team ever in Baltimore. Wade had it all size, depth, talent and three future professionals in 5-3 point guard Muggsy Bogues (Wake Forest), Reggie Williams (Georgetown) and the late Reggie Lewis (Northeastern). The bench, led by Lewis, showed its mettle at a tournament in Johnstown, Pa., when starters Williams, Mike Brown (Syracuse, Clemson) and Keith James (South Carolina) fouled out. Other key members were Tim Dawson (Miami)
