INGLEWOOD, Calif. -- John Paxson has suffered with an identity crisis for a long time.Playing his first two NBA seasons as a reserve with the San Antonio Spurs and the past five in the giant shadow of Chicago Bulls superstar Michael Jordan, he was about as visible as a guy in protective custody.Even when recognized in public, he is often mistaken for his older brother, Jim, who had 11 solid seasons in the NBA with the Portland Trail Blazers and Boston Celtics before retiring a year ago. But John Paxson, career caddie, may be emerging from the shadows.

When passing through the doors into the Shari Berto Center, the training facility of the world champion Chicago Bulls, one is greeted by a huge picture that covers nearly an entire wall. In the middle of the bigger-than-life picture is a young woman with a banner, held high above her head, that reads:"We Intend To Defend What Is Ours"What Chicagoans consider "ours" is the NBA championship. The Bulls have won the past three and were expected by many to win their fourth until Michael Jordan shocked the sport with his retirement this month.

CHICAGO -- Buck, dunk the ball!Now they are the Repeata-Bulls, just as they had been the Unbeata-Bulls since way back at Christmas, so there is only mild notice -- outside Chicago, that is -- that the Bulls are champions of the NBA. It long has been foregone, if not preordained.Buck, hold on to the ball!"We were still tall at the end," Michael Jordan said. "It may not have looked pretty, but tonight we still are tall."So, long after it was over, Jordan led his teammates back into the madhouse that was Chicago Stadium, the old war house still full with its 20,000 Bulls maniacs, and Jordan held the title trophy over his head and danced around the court.

Panel calls for reinstating MyricksA United States track panel yesterday recommended that two-time world indoor long jump champion Larry Myricks, who faces lifetime suspension for use of banned substances, should be reinstated next spring. Myricks, the 1988 Olympic bronze medalist, is serving a three-month suspension after testing positive for the stimulant phenylpropanolomine at the U.S. indoor championships Feb. 24 in New York.Myricks, 34, of Upland, Calif., appealed directly to a reinstatement panel of The Athletics Congress, the U.S. governing body of track and field, which said it had found "good cause to grant the reinstatement request," but would not give further details.

CHICAGO -- Apparently stung by Michael Jordan's public criticism that they were not prime-time players, the Chicago Bulls' supporting cast rallied around the superstar and breezed by the Los Angeles Lakers, 107-86, at Chicago Stadium last night.The Bulls' dramatic form reversal evened the best-of-seven NBA Finals, 1-1. The series will shift to Los Angeles for the next three contests. Game 3 is scheduled for the Great Western Forum tomorrow night.Jordan, who said he had to carry too much of the offensive burden in Friday night's 93-91 loss, again was the offensive leader, hitting 15 of 18 field-goal attempts in scoring a game-high 33 points and also getting 13 assists.

CHICAGO -- Everybody got to play for the Chicago Bulls last night. Superstar Michael Jordan invited his teammates to join in the fun, as the Bulls evened the NBA championship series, 1-1, by routing the Los Angeles Lakers, 107-86.Apparently stung by Jordan's suggestion that his supporting cast was not ready to respond to the pressure, John Paxson (8-for-8 from the field), Horace Grant and Bill Cartwright put in prime-time performances to avenge the 93-91, opening-game loss at home. The Bulls hit 67 percent of their shots.

PORTLAND, Ore. -- Think small. It might just pay big dividends, as it did for Rick Adelman and his Portland Trail Blazers, who rallied to beat the Chicago Bulls in Game 4 on Wednesday night and tie the NBA Finals, 2-2.The Blazers are in position to take the series lead at home tonight, which would force the Bulls to win the last two games at home to retain their title.Downsizing his team was the unorthodox strategy Adelman adopted, almost out of desperation, early the fourth quarter Wednesday night with Portland trailing 73-66 and on the verge of going down 3-1 in the best-of-seven series.

DEERFIELD, Ill. -- No one cried on the day Michael Jordan retired.Not his wife. Not his coach. Not his teammates. Not his agent.Not the owner of the Chicago Bulls. Not the commissioner of the NBA.They all came together yesterday at the Bulls' practice facility, a LTC whole passel of people for whom this news was particularly bad, yet there wasn't an ounce of sentiment in the air.Not a wet eye anywhere. Not even a marginally damp eye.How could anyone cry when they were witnessing the perfect retirement?

PHOENIX -- While champagne corks still were popping in the Chicago Bulls dressing room Sunday night, pro basketball experts already were assessing the team's place among the elite teams in NBA history.In winning their third consecutive NBA title, the Bulls just had accomplished what only the Bill Russell-led Boston Celtics (1959 to 1966) and George Mikan and the Minneapolis Lakers (1952 to 1954) had done before.Coach Phil Jackson argued strongly on behalf of his team."I'm not about to compare us with the great teams from different eras," he said.

CHICAGO -- Michael Jordan has taken a vow of silence for the remainder of the playoffs, but the Chicago superstar and his Bulls teammates delivered a powerful message yesterday, routing the New York Knicks, 103-83, in Game 3 of the Eastern Conference finals before a roaring crowd of 18,676.Putting aside the uproar over Jordan's trip to an Atlantic City, N.J., casino Monday night and a subsequent team-wide media boycott, the Bulls displayed poise in beating the Knicks in every phase of the game.
