DALLAS — As the No. 2 pick in the 1994 NBA draft by the Mavericks, Jason Kidd practically has walked in John Wall's shoes. Kidd entered the league after his sophomore year at California with tons of hype, an electrifying game and the ability to create a buzz with his frenetic play while getting the ball up and down the floor. Fast-forward to this season, and Wall is following a blueprint similar to Kidd's. Wall was the No. 1 pick last summer by the Wizards and entered the league with tons of hype after playing just one season at Kentucky.

It's been a hectic seven days for Danny Manning. A week ago he was a member of the Los Angeles Clippers. By Tuesday, he was hitting the game-winning shot for his new team, the Atlanta Hawks. And yesterday he was conducting a national teleconference while driving to the Atlanta airport to pick up his family."It's been a busy week," Manning said. "Everyone wants to talk to you. Sooner or later, it'll all die down, hopefully soon."Manning will find that it won't die down soon, especially when replacing an Atlanta legend -- Dominique Wilkins -- on a Hawks team that has the best record in the Eastern Conference and appears primed to compete for an NBA championship.

Dominique Wilkins was annoyed. That was obvious to Lenny Wilkens, and everyone else in Boston Garden, from the start.He had been in a bad shooting slump. He had a sore ankle and began a game against the Celtics Wednesday night bothered by a head cold and the fact that on the Atlanta Hawks' first few possessions, he couldn't get his itchy fingers on the ball.Mookie Blaylock was dribbling out near the key. Wilkins ran toward him with his hands out. Blaylock dribbled the other way and hoisted a jumper that missed.

NEW YORK -- Dominique Wilkins said Lawrence Taylor can make it back from a ruptured Achilles' tendon, but it won't be easy. The Atlanta Hawks' 32-year-old superstar should know.On Jan. 28 of this year in a game against the Philadelphia 76ers, Wilkins suffered virtually the exact injury the New York Giants linebacker did Sunday. Out for the remainder of the season, Wilkins went through six months of grueling rehabilitation and recovered fully in time for last week's NBA season start."It was rough," Wilkins said yesterday from his suburban Atlanta home.

Basketball coach Bob Weiss, who brings his Atlanta Hawks to the Capital Centre tonight to play the Washington Bullets, has a reputation as an amateur magician.And rival coaches credit Weiss with already pulling several rabbits out of a hat this season by having his Hawks in the thick of the Central Division race.After barely finishing over .500 last season and getting bounced by the Detroit Pistons in the opening round of the playoffs, Weiss decided his veteran-laden team needed a major overhaul.

When the Washington Bullets split their first dozen games, there was singing in the USAir Arena parking lots. Delusions of 30 NBA victories, maybe 35, found refuge in the minds of the faithful.Then came December and the good teams: Seattle, Phoenix, Portland, Atlanta."We had a chance when we got it down to four points," coach Wes Unseld said after his club had closed on the Hawks, 108-104, with just less than three minutes remaining at the packed (12,756) Baltimore Arena Saturday night.As has happened seemingly without pause during the past few seasons, though, a string of open shots bounced away, and the visitors made off with a 116-108 triumph.

Back in January, when Phoenix sported a gaudy 31-8 record, it seemed sure that Charles Barkley, the Suns' newly anointed leader, would be named the NBA's Most Valuable Player by a landslide margin.By his role in changing the soft image of the Suns and the strength of his individual averages (25.8 points, 12.5 rebounds), Barkley is still favored, but he no longer should be considered a lock. Michael Jordan, Hakeem Olajuwon, Patrick Ewing and Dominique Wilkins all merit serious consideration.
