WASHINGTON -- There was Washington Bullets coach Jim Lynam back in his element -- on a basketball court. Pacing from one basket to another he shouted directions, gave brief lessons and even stopped play to offer one of his colorful verbal exchanges.While the "coaching" Lynam was doing was at a clinic to dedicate a refurbished basketball court, the events over the past few days have him hopeful he'll soon get back to work.Yesterday the NBA player representatives, by a vote of 25-2, voted to approve the six-year collective bargaining agreement.

Wednesday in Cleveland was yet another off-night for Washington Bullets guard Calbert Cheaney, and coach Jim Lynam wanted him to know why. The numbers didn't lie: Cheaney took 22 shots (making seven) and never got to the free-throw line."Coach told me that '22 shots is great,' " Cheaney said yesterday after practice at Bowie State University. " 'But if you don't get to the foul line, it just defeats the purpose.' You have to make plays for yourself if your shots aren't falling."Against the Cavaliers, the Bullets were outscored from the free-throw line 30-14, which is exactly the margin the Bullets lost by.Getting to the line is all about aggressiveness and technique, and Lynam has been trying to get through to his players via videotape and discussions on how to improve that aspect of the game.

It was Jim Lynam's first trip back to the sidelines since coaching the Philadelphia 76ers in 1992, and it was not going all that well. After Cleveland forward Bobby Phills swooped in from the left baseline with a leaning dunk that set the crowd off, some of the Cavaliers fans sitting a few rows behind the Washington Bullets' bench decided it was time to rub it in a bit."Hey, I'd like to see that one again," shouted the fan, attending the preseason game at the JAR Arena in Akron, Ohio."Yeah, I would, too," Lynam said to no one in particular as he walked back to the bench, his head down, his comment dripping in sarcasm.

This is starting to get serious.The Washington Bullets were picked to finish last, they have no superstar and they won only 24 games last year.And look what's happening.This team -- and its No. 1 draft pick, Juwan Howard, is still unsigned -- started with a win over Orlando.Oh, boy, take that, Shaquille O'Neal. Shame on you, Magic.Then the Bullets went to Chicago and won. OK, maybe Da Bulls didn't take the game seriously enough, but the Bullets' record was then 2-0.Next came the only game the Bullets have lost -- and the one they should have won.They blew an 18-point fourth-quarter lead and lost to Philadelphia, one of the NBA's weakest teams.

DENVER -- When the Washington Bullets had completed their off-season wheeling and dealing, coach Jim Lynam said, "The sky's the limit" as to how far the team could go. At the time, Lynam probably had no idea he would be asked, in the days before the All-Star break, whether he was worried about losing his job."No, no," was Lynam's reply yesterday. "I don't want to give a discourse on it, but all I can do is coach the team."The team Lynam is coaching looks nothing like the squad that many expected to compete for the Atlantic Division title.

BOYS PLAYER OF THE YEAR Viral Vakil Liberty, senior He had always been a standout player for Liberty, but always was a rung behind Doug Ferguson, a three-time county champion. With Ferguson now at Towson University, however, Vakil finally got his chance to shine for the Lions, and the senior certainly didn't disappoint. He finished with a 20-4 record, defeating teammate Scott Hasenei, 6-2, 6-3, to win his first county title and taking third at regionals. He and Hasenei had teamed together at last year's county tournament, losing in the title match.

When Maryland National Guardsman William D. Crosby Sr. first heard about the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center, he knew right away that he would volunteer to help his fellow guardsmen in New York. But within the hour, five hijackers had crashed a jetliner into the Pentagon, and Crosby suspected he'd have orders of his own. He was right. The Randallstown man was among the several hundred Maryland Guardsmen federalized and dispatched Sept. 12 to Northern Virginia to guard the crime scene at the Pentagon.

Rain forced a fourth postponement of the Carroll County tennis tournament yesterday. Officials said they will try to squeeze the entire 60-match tournament, which usually takes place over two days, into one day today.John Lynam of North Carroll, who runs this year's tournament, said officials will try to start play at 9 a.m. on 10 different courts at three locations, including the high school. If they can begin at 9, Lynam is optimistic the tournament can finish by darkness.If the courts aren't playable or the weather still problematic, Lynam said they'll shoot for a noon start, which likely means the tournament would stretch into tomorrow.

HERNDON, Va. -- One day after labeling the Bullets' recent play "unacceptable," general manager Wes Unseld fired coach Jim Lynam yesterday and installed assistant Bob Staak as interim coach. The club immediately began the search for a permanent replacement, which Unseld hopes to conclude by the start of the second half of the season.The Bullets spent liberally to end an eight-year absense from the playoffs and put together a team worthy of the new arena that is rising in downtown Washington, so it was just a matter of time before another mediocre season put the coaching job up for grabs.
