It opens with the theme music of "The McLaughlin Group," but the topic of discussion is not politics -- it's basketball. Specifically, the NBA's Rookie of the Year award, with members of the group raving about the skills of Washington Bullets forward Juwan Howard."

WASHINGTON -- It was, said coach Bernie Bickerstaff, "the culmination of everything coming down." Whatever the reason, fighting for their playoff lives, the Washington Wizards walked off the court with their heads sunk low at the half when they scored a season-low 29 points and trailed by 31."Leaving the court to the boos and with our heads down, we could have thrown in the towel," Wizards forward Juwan Howard said. "We didn't do that."Though the Wizards trimmed a 32-point deficit to 10, it was no time for moral victories.

When the Washington Bullets roll out the basketballs tomorrow at Shepherd College in West Virginia for the official start of training camp, they'll do it with a new coach, a new point guard and a new attitude.But barring a last-minute deal, their newest potential star, Juwan Howard, will be nowhere to be found.Chances are that Howard, the fifth pick of the draft out of $H Michigan, will be in Chicago working out with his personal trainer preparing for an NBA career that may face a long delay because his agent, David Falk, and the Bullets have cut off contract negotiations.

LANDOVER -- Chris Webber doesn't want to join the Washington Bullets unless he can play with former Michigan teammate Juwan Howard.That's the scenario Webber, last year's NBA Rookie of the Year, has presented to the Bullets, general manager John Nash said.Webber is a restricted free agent with the Golden State Warriors; Howard is Washington's unsigned first-round draft pick. Both were members of the "Fab Five" that played -- and lost -- in the NCAA national championship games as freshmen and sophomores.

LANDOVER -- It was a chance to get back in the win column for the Washington Bullets, who got a chance to host the expansion Toronto Raptors last night. Instead, the Bullets became a footnote in Raptors history.Toronto won for the first time on the road in its brief history, getting a clutch jumper from rookie guard Damon Stoudamire with 2.5 seconds for a 103-102 win over the Bullets at the USAir Arena.Calbert Cheaney had a chance to win the game at the buzzer, but his jumper in the lane just before the buzzer hit the back rim and bounced away.

When training camp started for the Miami Heat two months ago, a pall of uncertainty hung in the air. The Heat had set aside millions to go shopping during the summer's free-agent market to become a contending team and hooked Juwan Howard -- only to see the deal vetoed by the NBA."Having Juwan Howard would have made us a great team," Miami's Kurt Thomas said when camp started. "Now we might not be as good as people think."But many have been forced to eat their words, including Thomas. The Heat is actually better than anyone could have expected, with Miami taking a franchise-record nine-game winning streak into tonight's game against the New York Knicks.

It has been five seasons since the Dallas Mavericks had a winning record, yet No. 2 pick Jason Kidd has gotten their fans excited. In Detroit, there's a feeling the Pistons could begin a turnaround with the addition of No. 3 pick Grant Hill. Though no one expects miracles in Minnesota, the Timberwolves have improved with the signing of No. 4 pick Donyell Marshall.And somewhere in the Washington Bullets' offices, there's a No. 5 jersey with the name "Howard" stitched on the back. But itdoesn't look like Juwan Howard, the No. 5 pick of the draft, will be in uniform any time soon.

LANDOVER -- This was a game in which Washington Bullets center Gheorghe Muresan figured he could do pretty much as he pleased. And yet in yesterday's first half, even though he got exactly the positioning he wanted against Atlanta Hawks center Christian Laettner, Muresan didn't look entirely comfortable."

Mitchell Butler's game is one of explosiveness, filling the lane on the break or finishing off a drive with one of his electrifying dunks.The Washington Bullets' second-year swingman is not exactly the type of guy who would strike fear into an opposing team by running the point.But Butler did just that on Saturday night, playing point guard over the last 8:35 and helping the Bullets overcome a 15-point second-half deficit in their 93-87 win over the Los Angeles Clippers.The win was the fourth in six games for the Bullets, who probably wouldn't have done it without Butler.
