A little Tuesday morning scattershooting:* Just wondering, but since Channel 2 is willing to pay viewers $1,000 to watch the 11 p.m. news during the May sweeps, do you think they'd slip a media critic $1.95 to watch their Preakness telethon Saturday.Just kidding.Tomorrow's post-position draw for Saturday's race will air live from Charm City, with elements originating from both Pimlico and the ESPN Zone. Post time, er, air time is 5 p.m.* Shame on ABC for wading hip deep into the toxic goo that Tiger Woods, David Duval and their agent, IMG, are creating with a made-for-prime-time August match-play situation.

In a game often highlighted by play above the rim, Utah Jazz point guard John Stockton -- 6 feet 1, 175 pounds -- has spent an 11-year career playing below it. And that's not a problem for Stockton, who this week should become the NBA's all-time assist leader.Stockton, who yesterday was named NBA Player of the Week after averaging 16.5 points and 13.5 assists in Utah's four wins, has 9,911 career assists and needs 11 to claim the mark. He most likely will get the record tomorrow night when the Jazz plays host to the Denver Nuggets.

The first collegian to be selected by the NBA next summer might be Syracuse freshman Carmelo Anthony, who is from Baltimore. So is the player who dominated last season's NCAA tournament, Washington Wizards rookie Juan Dixon. Few Baltimoreans, however, had left a substantial mark in basketball until a coach working his last game and a gang of talented but star-crossed teens from Dunbar High School conquered DeMatha and two figures headed to the Hall of Fame, Morgan Wootten and Adrian Dantley.
