LANDOVER -- To put it in straight, blunt terms, perhaps Kevin Duckworth will assess the situation and, with admirable nobility, resign his position on the Washington Bullets as his coach Wes Unseld has.In a move that contained some elements of surprise even though hardly unexpected, Unseld returned to duties in the team's front office yesterday after the Bullets ended another unsatisfactory season with a 117-99 victory over the Charlotte Hornets.In the final analysis, Unseld's career coaching mark says it all: 202 wins, 345 losses, including this season's 24-58 record.

Boston is 12-19, but if the season were to end today, the Celtics would have the eighth and final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference.

BOWIE -- As the Washington Bullets finished practice yesterday and prepared to fly to Atlanta for tonight's game against the Hawks, Don MacLean's team travel bag was among those loaded onto the team van. So was the bag of Juwan Howard. And Rex Chapman. All three players are making the two-game road trip that concludes tomorrow night against the New York Knicks.But whether the trio will be available as the Bullets look to end their season-high, 11-game losing streak remains to be seen.MacLean on Monday received an injection in his right hand, hoping to relieve the pain that persists from a broken right thumb suffered on New Year's Eve. He may not play on this trip.

LANDOVER -- Once again, Kevin Duckworth has fallen out of the good graces of the Washington Bullets.For the second time in less than a month, Duckworth was suspended by general manager John Nash yesterday for failure to stay in good physical condition.Duckworth has had a weight problem since joining the Bullets last season. He originally was suspended on Feb. 3 "for failure to keep in good physical condition" after his weight moved into the 320-pound range. By the time the ban ended, he had missed six games.

The News . . . and some views:The baseball players want to control baseball -- totally, completely and without reservation. They don't want to allow the owners to make so much as a sou on their investments.But, wait, don't these guys control the game already? The owners go out and try to make themselves a few bucks with an All-Star Game or a World Series and the players quickly whisk most of the money away.The revamped Golden Rule -- he who has the gold rules -- would seem to apply here. The owners do the work, seeing to it that an avalanche of greenbacks comes flowing into the game, and the players command 56 percent of it in salaries and benefits.

As the final seconds ticked off and the Washington Bullets clung to a one-point lead over the Milwaukee Bucks, the ball wound up in the hands of Kevin Duckworth.First, there was a bump from Bucks center Frank Brickowski, guarding the eight feet between Duckworth and the basket, then another bump and another. But Duckworth let fly with 11.2 seconds left in the game, the ball found the bottom of the net and Washington had a victory.Insignificant? Sure, the shot occurred in Thursday's preseason game, which also was Washington's first preseason win.But, at the same time, there was this: The Bullets went to the low post late in a game -- an option they haven't been comfortable with during the past five years.

The Washington Bullets' week started with a game against the league's best team. Now it's on to the NBA's hottest.That's the Cleveland Cavaliers, who take a league-best nine-game winning streak into tonight's game against the Bullets at the new Gund Arena in downtown Cleveland.Washington might get center Kevin Duckworth (sore Achilles' tendon) back to its injury-depleted lineup tonight. Guard Rex Chapman, who has missed eight of Washington's past nine games, is out tonight. But the Bullets aren't the only team hit hard by injuries.

PHILADELPHIA -- It was a new era for the Washington Bullets last night, a season opener in which Kevin Duckworth was expected to provide the team's first presence in the middle in years. Unfortunately for the Bullets, it was the man who was their last presence in the middle who did them in.Moses Malone, who in his final year with Washington during the 1987-88 season was the last real center the Bullets had before acquiring Kevin Duckworth, returned to the 76ers after an eight-year absence and scored 16 points in just 18 minutes of play in Philadelphia's 94-82 win before a crowd of 14,531 at the Spectrum.

CLEVELAND -- A month ago there was hope. A month ago there was promise. When people spoke of the Washington Bullets making the playoffs, they were serious.But after 25 games the Bullets find themselves exactly where they stood last season -- 7-18, and going nowhere fast.The Cleveland Cavaliers were the latest team to exploit the Bullets, using the league's best defense to post a 91-75 win before a sellout crowd of 20,562 at the Gund Arena. It was the 10th loss in 11 games for the Bullets, who are 2-12 for the month of December.

OAKLAND, Calif. -- It was Chris Webber's first trip back here since being traded, and when he walked onto the court in his Washington Bullets uniform, he did so with a strut. However, when he left, he had to do so with assistance.A game between the two teams involved in the blockbuster trade of the season was marred last night when Webber suffered a dislocated left shoulder in the Bullets' 107-87 loss before a sellout crowd at the Oakland Coliseum. He is expected to miss several games.Webber was injured with 9:25 left in the third quarter when he came down on his left shoulder while battling for a loose ball with Golden State guard Latrell Sprewell.

LANDOVER -- Two games do not a season make, especially when the schedule stretches to about the time the Cleveland Indians are bowing out of the American League East race late next spring.But 12-point losses to the 76ers in Philadelphia and to the Boston Celtics in their home opener Saturday gave unquestioned indication that the Washington Bullets have a long, arduous struggle ahead simply to achieve NBA respectability.Oh, you knew that already!As opposing players barged down the lane for uncontested layups and dunks, the newly structured offense of the Bullets looked about like you'd expect while being run by often unstructured players.
