EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- As badly as the Washington Bullets have played this season, and as poorly as the team had shot in losing three straight games, the bad times figured to end with the schedule changed.That's what the New Jersey Nets will do for an opponent.The Nets are the worst team in the NBA. And this ragtag group of NBA wanna-bes is exactly what the Bullets needed.And they took advantage, using a full-court defense for an extended time for the first time this season and causing 30 turnovers in last night's 106-91 win over the Nets (0-4)

AUBURN HILLS, Mich. -- In the NBA, they're used to big.But they will have to get used to Shawn Bradley.The 7-foot-6 center, who came to the Palace at Auburn Hills yesterday for tonight's NBA draft, probably will be the second player chosen -- behind Chris Webber. A lot of NBA hotshots came to the Detroit area at the same time, and so did a bunch of little shots -- reporters, mostly.When Detroit Free Press photographer John Collier asked Bob Lanier to pose with Bradley, the 6-foot-11 former Piston started to shy away.

INDIANAPOLIS -- Rik Smits may bear a slight resemblance to fellow NBA big man Shawn Bradley, but any similarity between )) the Indiana Pacers star and the New Jersey Nets' underachieving center isn't evident on the court.Still, not everyone sees the difference. Recently at Universal Studios in Orlando, Fla., a man walked up to the 7-foot-4 center and said, "This is unbelievable. Can I have my picture taken with you?"Smits obliged, and the man put his arm around him, struck a pose and said proudly: "This is going to be great.

Fact: (excerpted from the 1994 baseball season): ". . . needing just two more wins to lock up that wild-card spot . . ."Opinion: You could have gotten some pretty terrific odds on the Orioles' making this run with three starters (Rick Sutcliffe, Jamie Moyer, Fernando Valenzuela) who were discarded by their former employers.Fact: Seven major-league teams are experiencing drops in attendance this year, as opposed to 16 last year. Oakland is the biggest loser so far.Opinion: This year's top four NBA picks (Chris Webber, Shawn Bradley, Anfernee Hardaway, Jamal Mashburn)

With the Lakers' 48-win season and an opening-round upset of the Seattle SuperSonics in last season's NBA playoffs, it appeared that "Showtime" had returned to Los Angeles.The Lakers boasted the Coach of the Year (Del Harris), Executive of the Year (Jerry West), an All-Rookie first-team player (Eddie Jones) and two of the league's most exciting young stars (Nick Van Exel and Cedric Ceballos).But the first month of the 1995-96 season has been a struggle for Los Angeles, which needed Wednesday's win over the Phoenix Suns to reach the .500 mark.

This can't be good news for Glenn Robinson.Shawn Bradley lifts off the ground in Utah, maybe a couple of inches, blocks a shot, a nice, clean block, and then comes down on someone's foot and his left knee crumples. Again.Larry Johnson is the featured attraction in Paris but not for long, because pretty soon he is limping; then he is walking off the court with a hitch in his step. Johnson might be hurt, but he still high-fives the front-row fans. Preliminary diagnosis: stress fracture in his foot.

Less than a week after the six-player deal in which the New Jersey Nets sent Derrick Coleman to the Philadelphia 76ers for Shawn Bradley, both players made their debuts with their new teams on Wednesday. And, really, is anyone surprised at the result?Coleman, playing his first game of the season, scored 17 points and grabbed 11 rebounds to help the Sixers end an 11-game losing streak against Dallas. And Bradley scored seven points and grabbed five rebounds in New Jersey's loss to Minnesota.
