INGLEWOOD, Calif. -- Not all the Chicago Bulls will be overjoyed with winning the NBAchampionship, the first in the franchise's 25-year history.At least two of the players -- guard Dennis Hopson and center-forward Stacey King -- are disgruntled about their lack of playing time, particularly in the playoffs.Both were all but invisible in the championship series with the Los Angeles Lakers. King, a No. 1 draft pick in 1989 after an All-America career at Oklahoma, played six minutes during the series, four more than Hopson, who was acquired from the New Jersey Nets this season for the Bulls' top draft choice in 1990 and second-round choices in 1991 and 1992.

A Baltimore police sergeant will return to work now that a court has ruled that department officials erred when they accused him of perjury and fired him.The city's mayor and police commissioner said yesterday that the city will not appeal Monday's Circuit Court ruling ordering the reinstatement of Sgt. Louis H. Hopson Jr., who was discharged last year.It was unclear exactly when Hopson will return, or in what capacity. The 48-year-old, who has said he was targeted because he crusaded against racism in the department, is barred from having a weapon because of a domestic violence conviction dating to the 1980s.

Sgt. Louis H. Hopson Jr. first got in trouble in 1982. He was a rookie police officer then, and the Baltimore Police Department accused him of lying about how he obtained a search warrant, and he was stripped of 15 vacation days. In 1996, he testified on behalf of a colleague accused of rape but refused to say under oath that he had made a false report 14 years earlier. He was administratively charged with perjury and fired. A city Circuit Court judge reversed the termination, and Hopson is back on the force, working at the juvenile booking center, where he earned $90,000 in salary last year, but is barred from making arrests and testifying in court.

Since transferring from Archbishop Curley, where he won two private school state titles, twice was National Preps runner-up, and amassed 433 takedowns, Overlea's Darian Kess has vowed to be even more dominant than he had been. Judging by his impressive showing at yesterday's Overlea Tournament, the 125-pound junior just might accomplish his goal. Kess scored two pins before hammering defending 2A-1A state champion Mike Weber of Sparrows Point, 18-1, in their title bout to earn Outstanding Wrestler for the third time this season.

Three days after the City Council did not pass a resolution demanding Frazier's resignation and two days after the commissioner and Col. Ron Daniel appeared in public to say the rift between them had been closed, Sgt. Louis Hopson and Sgt. Robert Richards stuck to their guns.
