Tim Connelly said recently that he had already exceeded his dreams by becoming the assistant general manager of an NBA team three years ago. The 36-year-old Baltimore native might be raising his career bar again. Connelly, who never played on the college or pro level after graduating from Towson Catholic, was named Monday as the new executive vice president of basketball operations for the Denver Nuggets. Connelly had spent the past three years with the New Orleans Pelicans - formerly the Hornets.

When Carmelo Anthony last called the state of New York his home, he was a baby-faced freshman at Syracuse University. He wore his hair in tightly-woven corn rows and his lanky frame had not yet filled out with muscle, but his beautiful jump shot and his ever-present grin seemed like harbingers of limitless potential. There was little doubt that this skinny teenager who grew up on Myrtle Avenue in West Baltimore, and led the Syracuse Orange to an NCAA title as a freshman, was going to be a bona fide NBA star.

Ever since he left UMBC more than a decade ago, Jeff Bzdelik has been one of those obscure NBA assistant coaches whose nondescript face was rarely attached to his hard-to-pronounce name. Not much has changed for Bzdelik (pronounced buzz-Del-ick) in terms of his profile, except now he is taking obscurity to a new level -- as the still unknown first-year head coach of the NBA's most faceless franchise, the Denver Nuggets. It is a match made in salary cap heaven. Bzdelik, 50, was named last August to succeed Mike Evans as coach of a team that starts three rookies, lists three others on the NBA's lowest payroll and has only two widely recognizable names -- center Marcus Camby and forward Juwan Howard -- on its roster.

VS. DENVER NUGGETS* WHEN: Tonight, 9:30.* WHERE: McNichols Sports Arena.* RADIO: WTOP-AM (1500).* OUTLOOK: The Bullets (6-13) conclude a difficult five-game West Coast trip against the struggling Nuggets (4-15). Horace Grant provided a note of encouragement with 25 points in Sunday night's loss to the Lakers, but the Bullets are still looking for a dependable scorer to assist Bernard King. Coach Wes Unseld probably will have to make more extensive use of his bench against the run-and-gun Nuggets, who have had difficulty adjusting to new coach Paul Westhead's helter-skelter style.

Improper anchoring caused boat accident nfl An agency investigating a deadly boating accident involving two NFL players and their two friends in the Gulf of Mexico concluded it was caused when the vessel was improperly anchored and the boat capsized after one of them tried to throttle forward to pry loose the anchor. The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission's investigation also cited carelessness and operator inexperience as contributing factors. The errors came when a storm front was moving in, making the water very rough.

Trading a superstar tends to be dicey business, but for many reasons, the Denver Nuggets did a terrific job in flipping Allen Iverson for Chauncey Billups. That's not a knock on Iverson, one of the most remarkable athletes of my lifetime (most guys his size never sniff the NBA, much less average 27.7 points over 12 seasons). It's just that the Nuggets got a player who is almost as good, fits their needs better and won't bolt to another team after this season. The Nuggets have a potential big-time scorer in J.R. Smith, who happens to play shooting guard.

For sport fans outside of New England who have had a bellyful of the Red Sox and Patriots, there's some bad news: The Celtics are pretty good, too. Of course, they have been chugging along with the NBA's best record all season, so that's not exactly a news flash. But Boston's raid through Texas this week unequivocally served notice that the Celts are the clear favorite to win the NBA championship. When Boston journeyed into the so-called Texas Triangle, it was San Antonio, Houston and Dallas - three teams that have combined to win two-thirds of their games - who disappeared.

Michael Jordan was in his second NBA season when the 1986 playoffs began. Having been named Rookie of the Year and twice selected to the All-Star team, Jordan had missed all but 18 games that season with a broken foot and went against the wishes of his doctors by suiting up against the Boston Celtics. It was then, in Game 2 of an opening-round three-game sweep for the eventual NBA champion Celtics, that the 23-year-old guard scored a playoff-record 63 points in a 135-131 double-overtime defeat.
