BOWIE -- It's long after practice, and most of the Washington Bullets have left, or are dressed and ready to leave. But point guard Robert Pack is the last to go. It's a common occurrence.First he practices his jumper. Next it's free throws. Then it's on to an extended weight-room session.

"It seems like I've always faced tough situations, so I try not to take anything for granted."
