SHOOTING GUARD - Michael Jordan vs. Hersey HawkinsSeattle coach George Karl has said that he will have Hawkins defend Jordan at the start of games, with Gary Payton getting the assignment at the end of the games. Hawkins, at 6-3, finds himself at a tremendous disadvantage against the 6-6 Jordan. The same will be the case with Payton, even though he was the NBA's defensive player of the year.
