Being a superstar is not easy.Every time you go out in public loudmouths bother you and stalkers stalk you.Ask Nancy Kerrigan, who is 5-foot-4, 115 pounds and got whacked with a crowbar.Ask Monica Seles, who is 5-foot-9, 130 pounds and got stabbed.Then ask Scottie Pippen, who is 6-foot-7, 210 pounds and once got jostled in a crowded bar by a person who instantly said: "Excuse me, sir, I am very, very sorry and it will never, ever happen again."Yet Scottie Pippen lives in terror.So much terror that Pippen, star forward for the Chicago Bulls, owns a blue-steel Colt Government Pock- etlite .380 automatic that he carries with him in his car.Pippen didn't make the NBA All-Defensive team for nothing.

We just watched the best U.S. men's basketball team to play in the Olympics since at least 1996. But is the Redeem Team better than the Dream Team? Come on. Here's a little exercise. I'm coaching the 1992 team. You tell me how you're going to beat me with the 2008 team. You probably want to create turnovers and run our older legs off the court. But I can start three guys - Scottie Pippen, Michael Jordan and Magic Johnson - who bring the ball upcourt. They're all 6-foot-6 or taller, and they can all pass.

Scottie Pippen wants out of Chicago. Badly. The Bulls, according to reports out of Chicago, seem ready to move him. And the Washington Bullets, as they did in the off-season when Pippen was shopped, have an interest.But Bullets general manager John Nash -- while saying he has talked with the Bulls -- said fans shouldn't expect a mega-deal that would put Pippen in a Washington uniform."We would love to have Scottie Pippen," Nash said. "But the reality is it would take probably more than we have."

Despite Ray Lewis' public swipes at the Ravens this week, there are no plans to part ways with the seven-time Pro Bowl linebacker, a team official said yesterday. Lewis recently escalated his rift over a new contract when he failed to endorse the return of coach Brian Billick on Wednesday and then complained about the team's defensive scheme and personnel the next day. Asked if the Ravens are considering either trading or releasing Lewis, Ravens general manager Ozzie Newsome quickly said, "No."

NOT LONG AGO, I spent an unnerving evening with three men who insisted on discussing their vasectomies.I don't know how we got on the subject. One minute we were watching Scottie Pippen of the Bulls swoop toward the basket, and the next minute this guy Steve was asking: "You ever had a vasectomy?""Excuse me?" I said."A vasectomy. Where they cut your . . ."I know what it is," I said. "I just can't figure out why you're bringing it up now. Did Scottie Pippen have a vasectomy?"As it turned out, no one knew whether Scottie Pippen had had a vasectomy.

PHOENIX -- The cold snap continues here.Only a hundred and one.But it's a dry heat, is the local refrain. No humidity in the desert."Just like in a microwave?" Scottie Pippen asks.Uh-huh."Well, a hundred and one," he reasons, smiling, "will still toast your buns."Every once in a while a sly wit creeps out from this angular, veiny hawk-face who is built like an exclamation point.And every once in a while, more so of late, you begin to think that perhaps you have grievously misjudged Scottie Pippen.

As he took the stage he has dreamed of performing on, it was no surprise Charles Barkley was in top form yesterday, the first official hype day preceding the NBA Finals between the Phoenix Suns and Chicago Bulls. Let Michael Jordan remain mute. Chuck cannot only fill the lane, but also the word void.But Barkley's discourses on his alleged relationship with Madonna and his highly anticipated square-off against Jordan were only a couple of themes of the day. In other clusters gathered on the America West Arena practice floor, the hot topic was the Scottie Pippen Problem.

COLLEGE PARK -- Before the first shot of the new season has been taken, Maryland women's basketball coach Chris Weller has had to apologize to one of her players for something she said.Nothing bad, mind you. In fact, the remark was quite a compliment. Weller, at a gathering of assembled media inGreensboro, N.C., last month, called freshman Kelley Gibson the potential female equivalent of Scottie Pippen.Yes, that Scottie Pippen, the one who won three NBA championships with the Chicago Bulls and a gold medal with the Dream Team at the 1992 Summer Olympics.

WASHINGTON - With their self-proclaimed father, Michael Jordan, on the shelf with a knee injury, the Washington Wizards did a decent job of upholding the family name last night against the Portland Trail Blazers in their first game in his absence. But one of Jordan's former kid brothers, Scottie Pippen, did the damage in the Wizards' 105-101 loss, their sixth straight setback and seventh defeat in their past nine games. Pippen had 19 points, including eight of Portland's last 10 points.

WASHINGTON - The nature of the NBA schedule dictates that there will be nights when effort may lag behind production, but even with that as a pretext, there is nothing to excuse the effort the Washington Wizards turned in last night. Washington essentially mailed in a 98-79 loss to the Portland Trail Blazers at MCI Center. The Wizards (9-12), who looked as if they wanted to get to their respective homes before the forecasted ice storm, did pick the oddest time to turn in a performance so flat the announced sellout crowd of 20,173 booed lustily at the end of the third period, with Portland leading by 24. Coach Doug Collins appeared so angry at the desultory effort that he didn't even talk to the Wizards during a timeout early in the fourth quarter.

SINCE 1996, the United States has had a ludicrous farm-subsidy program that focused most of its largesse on big corporate enterprises and made it possible for such well-known farmers as Ken Lay ($6,019), Scottie Pippen ($26,315) and David Rockefeller ($134,556) to get federal assistance with the harvest out on the back 40. But at least this program, conceived by Republicans, was based on the idea that someday, somehow, American farmers would be weaned from welfare. Now Congress is in the midst of throwing even this pretense to the dusty wind.

PORTLAND, Ore. - Scottie Pippen's demeanor seemed to change the moment he knew the Portland Trail Blazers were going to play the Los Angeles Lakers in the NBA's Western Conference finals. Gone was the regular-season cool, and the quiet confidence he showed in the first two rounds against the Minnesota Timberwolves and Utah Jazz. Even some of his teammates noticed. Before Lakers coach Phil Jackson tried to cast Pippen in the uncomfortable role as Portland's only leader - a position Jackson knew Pippen has never liked playing from their years together in Chicago - Pippen's sense of purpose went beyond simply beating the Lakers for another chance to play in the NBA Finals.

WASHINGTON -- As the charter bus carrying the Chicago Bulls pulled up to the MCI Center yesterday afternoon, not a single soul awaited them. Nobody. Which was approximately the same size of the crowd that staked out the team's Crystal City, Va., hotel during its brief stay in the area, a slight that had some of the players reflecting on the good old days. "Back then, there'd be 500 to a thousand people at the hotel, 500 to a thousand people waiting for us when we pulled in here," said second-year guard Keith Booth, the former Dunbar and Maryland star.

Before welcoming his twin brother, Horace, and the Chicago Bulls to the Capital Centre tonight, Washington Bullets forward Harvey Grant was asked if the NBA's defending champions had any apparent weakness.Harvey rolled his eyes and said: "None. There is no way you can exploit them." Still, he said that such talk did not indicate abject surrender."We usually play them tough," Harvey Grant said. "But sometimes, you almost get the feeling that they're playing with you like a cat with a mouse.

Shawn Kemp, forward, Cleveland Cavaliers: liers: Before signing his $100 million contract, Kemp was always in shape and possessed tremendous athletic ability.
