It's been the assumption that once the season was over that the Denver Nuggets would take care of center Dikembe Mutombo, to the tune of about $10 million a year. But with the possibility the disappointing Nuggets could wind up in the NBA lottery, it appears the team is rethinking paying Mutombo like a franchise-type player.Which could be the reason we recently witnessed an NBA-season-high 31 rebounds by Mutombo against the Charlotte Hornets on March 26. On Tuesday, Mutombo grabbed 18 rebounds against Minnesota and for the season he's third in the league in rebounding (11.8)

Let's get this clear right away: It is indecent that the Ravens want Lawrence Phillips badly enough to trade up for him in today's NFL draft.It should offend anyone's sensibilities that the Ravens are willing to make Phillips a high pick and sign him to a huge contract less than a year after he battered and bloodied his former girlfriend and dragged her down a stairwell in her apartment building.Heaping glory and riches on a young man so soon after such an incident only diminishes the crime and makes it easier for others to feel safe in committing it, knowing there is life on the other side, particularly if you can run with a football.

RICHFIELD, Ohio -- He yells the name out more than 100 times a night. Chris Ford isn't coaching the Boston Celtics. He thinks he's coaching the "Eddies."Somebody beats his man off the dribble. "Eddie!" Ford shrieks. The offense bogs down. "Eddie!" Ford bellows. The opponents rip off a fastbreak: "Eddie!" An enemy put-back: "Eddie!" John Bagley misses a free throw: "Eddie!" Robert Parish throws the ball away: "Eddie!"The shower water is too cold: "Eddie!" The bus is late: "Eddie!" No doubt about it: Eddie Pinckney is responsible for the sagging economy, the California earthquakes, the rush-hour traffic and the persistent acne on the face of some 13-year-old kid. And it is, without question, his fault that the New Boston Garden project remains eternally stalled.

There is only one person on the Boston Celtics that worries me and that is Larry Bird. You can throw out as many Dee Browns and Brian Shaws as you want. Tall guys? Bring on the tall guys, Kevin McHale, Joe Kleine, Ed Pinckney. Even the old man, Robert Parish -- who recently celebrated his 92nd birthday -- even him, I can handle. I need an ax. But I can handle him.Bird worries me. Always has. There are athletes who just seem to have something secret up their sleeve, something they know and you don't and never will.

VS. BOSTON CELTICS* WHEN: Tonight, 8.* WHERE: Capital Centre.* TV/RADIO: HTS; WTOP-AM 1500, WINX-AM 1600.* OUTLOOK: The Bullets (23-39) ended a nine-game losing streak with a 103-100 victory at Charlotte Tuesday and now take on the Celtics (47-17), who have the third best record in the NBA. Bernard King (lower back) is expected to return after missing Tuesday's game, and Darrell Walker (knee) has been cleared to play but is questionable. If Walker can't go, Haywoode Workman will start.Two matchups worth watching: Bullets center Pervis Ellison, who has averaged 14.9 points and 10.1 rebounds as a starter in the past 12 games, will go against the Celtics' grand old man, Robert Parish.

Right on the heels of the death of journalist and author Jeffrey Zaslow, ("The Last Lecture" and "The Girls from Ames") at age 53, comes the news that Whitney Houston has died, at 48 . Both died much, much too young.  Houston was know for singing, rather than writing. But her roller-coaster life was the stuff of novels. And for readers of a certain age, her music brings back plenty of memories. As the Associated Press obituary noted: "Houston made her album debut in 1985 with 'Whitney Houston,' which sold millions and spawned hit after hit. 'Saving All My Love for You' brought her her first Grammy, for best female pop vocal.
