Denver Nuggets coach George Karl (above) made an interesting declaration yesterday. He said his team, which features Carmelo Anthony of Baltimore and Allen Iverson, would be made to toe the line next season. After his 50-win Nuggets were swept by the Los Angeles Lakers in the first round of the playoffs, Karl promised he'd be tougher (yet, not too tough) on his guys going forward. And that the players would do things more his way rather than their own. Among the specifics was more "public service."

Good morning --George Karl -- Your two-game suspension turned out to be a suspension from winning for the Nuggets. QUESTION OF THE DAY Which free agent should the Orioles make their priority? The Orioles' needs are many and they should pursue the best available, but they'll get no one of importance. Why? Because while other teams are shopping Woodward & Lothrop style, the Orioles will be looking in Ollie's Bargain Outlet ... cheap, cheap, cheap!

SAN JOSE, Calif. -- George Karl is still coaching. But George Karl isn't still COACHING!!It's been three years since Karl, then the Warriors' coach, ripped the doors off Joe Barry Carroll's locker after the center's lackluster performance during a playoff loss. It's been more than two years since Karl humiliated a referee by berating him before a sellout crowd during a timeout and, on another occasion, angrily pushed away an assistant coach during a close game.To Karl, that was COACHING!!

For years, the TV talking heads have told us that the level of play gets dramatically more intense come playoff time in the NBA. That's true enough, but it's hardly the only thing that gets more intense at this time of year. The level of talk, or smack, if you will, rises just as significantly each spring, and this year's postseason is no different. The dominant subject of discussion, understandably, is the perceived inequity in officiating, with Dallas and Portland leading the way in chattering about the men with whistles.

It took the anticipation of the playoffs for the Indiana Pacers to finally become interested in the NBA season.After sleepwalking for most of the regular season -- during which the Pacers had just one 20-point win for almost the first three months -- Indiana has had wins of 23, 22 and 22 points in its past five games.That includes blowouts over New York and Cleveland in the last two games of the regular season and a 22-point win over Milwaukee in the opener of their first-round playoff series.

Well, the World Series is over and no substantial damage has RTC been done to the American form of government or, more importantly, to NBC executives.Sunday's Game 7 between Florida and Cleveland did a 26.0 rating in the Nielsen overnight survey with a 39 share of the audience, the highest rating for a baseball game since Game 7 of the 1991 Series did a 32.2 on CBS.The pessimists will accurately note that Sunday's number was the lowest for a seventh game since the 1968 clincher between Detroit and St. Louis did a 21.2 for a game played in the afternoon, but the 26.0 rating is a strong number, which will be exceeded only by the Super Bowl among sporting events.

SEATTLE -- George Karl was on the bench for his first game as the Seattle SuperSonics' head coach last night, and the amazing part was that he stayed awake for all 48 minutes.A weary Karl arrived in Seattle just after midnight Wednesday on a 24-hour flight from Madrid, Spain. After a few hours of sleep, he worked out an undisclosed contract with Sonics president Bob Whitsitt later in the morning, then was introduced to the players after the team worked out.Karl, 40, had said he would let interim coach Bob Kloppenburg, the club's scout, do most of the coaching against the Blazers -- but was up and shouting instructions to his players in the dramatic fourth quarter.
