PHILADELPHIA - Maybe the end of one era will finally allow the NBA and the Washington Wizards to usher in another one. The Michael Jordan farewell tour is over. Finally. That's what most of this NBA season has been about: the Wizards and Jordan. Ever since Jordan and the Chicago Bulls won their sixth title five years ago and Jordan went into Retirement No. 2, the league has feared that the younger crop of superstars couldn't carry the league. So they were just as happy as Jordan was when he announced he would play again two years ago, this time in the nation's capital with the lowly Wizards.

WASHINGTON - When you boil it down, there are essentially two kinds of NBA rookies - those who take the full season or more to get the fit of the league, and those who wear the professional game like an old jacket. Two weeks into this season, it's becoming clear Washington Wizards rookie forward Jarvis Hayes and his game are tailor-made for the NBA, though he won't cop to it. "I wouldn't say that they [opponents] have picked up on me," Hayes said. "They're aware of me. But I'm still a rookie, and rookies don't get much respect in this league until you prove something.

WILMINGTON, N.C. -- For as long as Jerry Stackhouse can remember, talk of one kind or another has been running after him like an opposing guard through a screen. His critics, from his collegiate days at North Carolina, into the NBA, where he supposedly couldn't play with Allen Iverson or Grant Hill, branded him selfish, and it took seven years of his professional career to finally quell that talk. Now, as he begins a new season as the shooting guard for the Washington Wizards, Stackhouse is preparing to go head-to-head with the chatter that has dogged him the longest: that he would never measure up to Michael Jordan, the man he has been compared to, seemingly, through his entire life.

WASHINGTON - Washington Wizards forward Jerry Stackhouse has effectively ruled himself out of the final 25 games of the regular season to continue to rehabilitate his ailing right knee. Stackhouse, who missed the first 45 games of the season after having offseason surgery beneath his right kneecap, said complications from the operation have hampered his ability to play at peak efficiency. "When you jump back into a pro game and it's going full speed, it takes its toll on your whole body," said Stackhouse after yesterday's 122-110 loss to the Los Angeles Lakers.

Allen Iverson and Tracy McGrady are still adored. Despite having little to no impact, both went into the final hours of All-Star voting in position to start, thanks to loyal fans who still consider them stars despite undeserving stats. And with fans showing signs of getting it so wrong, Celtics guard Ray Allen thinks it's time to limit their influence. The nine-time All-Star said the fan voting has made the game "watered down" and called for a change in the process.
