Upon their arrival on Thursday the Washington Wizards held a team dinner at a Japanese steakhouse. The team-building exercise was intended to break up the monotony and division that naturally comes with being on a losing team. "When you do things like that, go out to eat, do different things together, it builds a bond, and a relationship to make you want to play with each other on the court, and play hard for each other," Rashard Lewis said a day later. Whatever happened over the course of eating prime cuts of beef was lost the moment the Wizards set foot on the floor Friday night against the Philadelphia 76ers, as they suffered perhaps their most embarrassing defeat of the season, 120-89, at Wells Fargo Center.

Two Philadelphia sports teams returned home last week. Despite wondrous performances by its nationally renowned star, the first split two games before tepid crowds. The second arrived in glory with the best record in its league and played before another guaranteed full house. And that's about how it has gone all season for the 76ers and Flyers in Baltimore's sports-crazed neighbor to the north. The Sixers boast one of the biggest national stars in Allen Iverson, but have struggled to break .500 and attract fans.

PHILADELPHIA - At some point during tonight's fifth game of the NBA Finals, the Lawrence O'Brien Trophy, presented each year to the league champions, will be brought into the First Union Center in anticipation of the Los Angeles Lakers claiming ownership of it for a second straight year. The burning question left is whether the Philadelphia 76ers, who have made their way through this year's playoffs on moxie and desire, have enough left physically and emotionally to keep the more talented and fresher Lakers from taking possession of the trophy on Philadelphia's floor.

If you watch Milwaukee Bucks guard Ray Allen glide across the court, firing jumpers with the precision of a skilled marksman, and you get the impression that it looks easy, you're not the only one. Allen's game looks easy even to Allen, particularly when he watches game tape, proving you can't believe everything you see on a screen. "When I watch film, I think I look like I'm running down the floor effortlessly," Allen said. "A lot of times, I'll think I was running fast or coming off a screen so fast, but when I watch the film, it looks so effortless.

PHILADELPHIA - He is, depending on the point of view, one of the most misunderstood players ever to lace up a pair of sneakers or simply misanthropic, a symbol for all that is wrong with the National Basketball Association. He is, depending on the hour of the day, the kind of supernova who will lead the Philadelphia 76ers back to their glorious past or just too selfish and irresponsible to be part of a championship team. Revered and reviled, Allen Iverson has won grudging respect from the critics who followed him here from Georgetown four years ago and grew in great numbers as he showed little reverence for the league's stars or its history.

PHILADELPHIA -- They finished the regular season tied for the best record in the Eastern Conference, yet they were viewed as underachievers. That's because more was expected of an Indiana Pacers team that extended the Chicago Bulls to seven games in last year's Eastern Conference finals.Well, the Pacers last night moved one step closer to reaching the conference finals for the second year in the row with a 97-86 win over the Philadelphia 76ers before a sellout crowd at the First Union Center.

For an NBA draft that was considered drab, there was quite a bit of drama leading to last night's gathering at the Charlotte Coliseum: Would Scottie Pippen be traded to the Boston Celtics, thus ending the Chicago Bulls dynasty? Would the New Jersey Nets and Philadelphia 76ers pull the trigger on a rumored eight-player deal?By the end of the first round, there were few surprises and no announced megadeals. But the round did result in a thrill for a local star, Keith Booth. The former Dunbar and Maryland star was selected in the final pick of the first round by the world champion Bulls.
