In keeping with their perplexing season, it seemed only fitting that the New York Knicks chose to fire general manager Al Bianchi after winning four in a row.The timing may have been bad, but the moguls at Madison Square Garden had already accumulated a rap sheet against Bianchi that guaranteed he would not finish the season. The principal charges were:* Electing not to re-sign Bernard King in 1987.* His running feud with coach Rick Pitino, which caused Pitino to flee to Kentucky after winning 52 games with the Knicks in the 1988-89 season.

WASHINGTON -- Washington Wizards president Susan O'Malley noticed the difference immediately. As the fourth quarter began in last week's Wizards victory over the New York Knicks, few of the Verizon Center fans were taking an early slide. Most remained in their seats with the Wizards holding a double-digit lead, leading O'Malley to wear a look of pleasant surprise. It was an expression that betrayed years of watching fans slip out early to beat the rush. But not this year. Not when the Wizards boast an NBA Eastern Conference-best home record of 17-3 heading into tonight's game against the equally high-scoring Phoenix Suns.

WASHINGTON - As he adjusted his earring Wednesday night after the latest Washington Wizards loss, Larry Hughes stopped and let out a huge sigh. Hughes has only been around for the past two losing Wizards seasons, but the 25-57 campaign that just ended was more than enough to give him pause. "It was tough playing and losing games, and knowing that we had enough to get it done," Hughes said. "It's tough. I don't really see a positive other than I finished healthy and Gilbert [Arenas] finished healthy, but Stack [Jerry Stackhouse]

WASHINGTON - Ernie Grunfeld traces the success of the Washington Wizards this season back to opening night in Memphis. Against a team that was the biggest surprise of the NBA a year ago, the Wizards played without three starters, fell behind by 18 points - and won. "It showed that we were going to compete," Grunfeld, in his second season as the team's president of basketball operations, said recently. The first of a league-high 10 victories coming back from double-digit deficits was more than the impetus for the franchise's best record at the All-Star break in 25 years.

The Milwaukee Bucks are poised to offer Washington Wizards reserve center Etan Thomas a six-year contract worth in excess of $35 million when the moratorium on NBA free-agent signings expires tomorrow, a source familiar with the negotiations said last night. Thomas, who finished tied for 18th in the NBA in total blocked shots last season, averaged 8.9 points and 6.7 rebounds last season for Washington in 79 games. According to the source, the Bucks are expected to offer Thomas the full mid-level exception, which should be around $5 million per season.
