Indiana vs. San Antonio.The prospect surely terrifies NBC, which is reason enough to root for it to happen. Only a ruthless television network could find the New York Knicks appealing.NBC, already inconsolable over Michael Jordan's retirement, would take an enormous hit if the Finals pitted the two lowest-ranked TV markets since Syracuse beat Fort Wayne in 1954.You know, back before color was widely available, much less cable.Indianapolis is the nation's 25th-largest TV market. San Antonio is the 37th-largest.

SAN ANTONIO, Texas -- The San Antonio Spurs are doing it John Lucas' unconventional lean-on-your-leaders way these days. The San Antonio coach calls himself "the manager," calls David Robinson "the president" and Dale Ellis and Sean Elliott "the vice presidents" -- and there are no dissenters in the ranks.How could there be when the Spurs came out of last night's 111-93 victory over the New Jersey Nets at the HemisFair Arena with a 17-3 record with the onetime NBA drug dropout-turned-rehabilitator at the helm?

Their roster is getting stronger. Their schedule is getting weaker. And over the last seven weeks of the Canadian Football League's regular season, those factors should help the San Antonio Texans solidify their position as the team best-equipped to block Baltimore's return to the Grey Cup championship game.The Texans, tied with the Birmingham Barracudas for second place in the Southern Division, play five of their final seven games at the Alamodome. Four of those seven are against Ottawa, Toronto and Shreveport -- a combined 8-29.

LANDOVER -- Listed at a highly suspect 5 feet 10 and 6 feet 3, they form one of the smallest guard combinations in the NBA and have started together only four times. But Michael Adams and Doug Overton could very well represent the Washington Bullets' future backcourt.The positives this dynamic, little duo can bring to a team were clearly evident last night against the San Antonio Spurs when they combined for 41 points and 27 assists to lead the Bullets to a 119-106 victory, breaking a four-game losing streak.

Like many 12 year olds, C.J. Fair dabbled in many different sports. He played some baseball, a little football and anything his friends were into at the time. Then he started "growing like a weed," as his father Carl put it, and Carl asked him to pick one sport. C.J. chose basketball, and he and his friends - Antonio and Will Barton , Josh Selby and Nick Faust - began dominating anyone who stood in their way. They formed a super team, as the lanky lefty C.J. continued to sharpen his game at the John Eager Howard Community Center and around Baltimore playgrounds.

On a recent trip to San Antonio, Texas, I was struck by a realization: Spanish is no longer merely a foreign language; it has officially become a domestic one. Ordering a coffee at Starbucks, having a drink with colleagues at a local restaurant, asking a stranger on the street for directions - all of these are scenarios that would have once, in the not-so-distant past, necessitated an unspoken adherence to a "speak in English" public standard....

Among the greatest ironies of President John F. Kennedy's fateful visit to Texas in late November 1963 was that it was a political mission to resolve a rift among Texas Democrats looking toward his own re-election bid in 1964. The chief political beneficiary of Kennedy's assassination was the state's most prominent and powerful Democrat, Vice President Lyndon B. Johnson. LBJ did not favor the Kennedy trip and essentially was bypassed on the decision to make it. Until the fatal shots were fired as the Kennedy party was driven through downtown Dallas, the principal story line about the visit was whether a feud between liberal Texas Sen. Ralph Yarborough and Gov. John B. Connally, a close Johnson friend, could be smoothed over, to assure Kennedy's re-election in 1964.

SAN ANTONIO -- Going into last night's Game 1 of the NBA Finals, the New York Knicks appeared to have the advantage on the perimeter. But the big question was whether the Knicks could contain San Antonio's front line, particularly Tim Duncan.That's a question New York must try to find an answer to by tomorrow night's Game 2, as Duncan dominated play in the post with 33 points, 16 rebounds and two blocks in an 89-77 San Antonio win before a crowd of more than 40,000 at the Alamodome.Duncan did it all, from scoring in the low post to hitting jumpers to passing out to teammates for easy baskets.

Former Terps point guard Greivis Vasquez is headed from the New Orleans Pelicans to the Sacramento Kings in a three-player trade, USA Today reported Thursday. The Kings, Pelicans and Trail Blazers agreed orally on a deal that will send Vasquez to Sacramento, restricted free-agent guard Tyreke Evans to New Orleans and center Robin Lopez and guard Terrel Harris to Portland, according to two sources who spoke to the newspaper on the condition of anonymity because the trade can't be formalized until Wednesday.
