Three-time NBA All-Star Vince Carter shoots hoops for the Toronto Raptors. But when it comes to video games, he's a Madden man. When he's on the road with the Raptors, Vince always drags along a PlayStation 2. "I mostly play sports games," Carter says. That means Madden NFL Football and NBA Live 2004, the latter of which sports his mug on the cover. "I'm really good at football, less so at the basketball." Isn't that kind of ironic? Maybe not as much as you'd think. "I play as the [Miami]

It's not nice to fool with Mother Nature or Michael Jordan . Or it wasn't. Still an icon, Jordan owns the woebegone Bobcats and makes hollow gestures like leaking word he fired coach Larry Brown ... after announcing Brown resigned ... two months after saying he wanted to extend him but kept getting put off. Obligingly, the Charlotte Observer reported: "Jordan gets last word; Brown ousted. " Good thing for both of them Brown didn't sign that extension. Whether or not Mike can make things work in Charlotte, he can't do it for free, having just lost Raymond Felton and Tyson Chandler , while bringing in no one. On that budget, Jerry West couldn't do it. Brown gets $8 million in severance and will work more miracles, however brief.

Let me introduce to you, the band you've known for all these years ... The Magic? No. 3 in glamour in the Eastern Conference, the new land of titans, it remains to be seen where the Magic will finish in the standings — or, more important, the conference draw. Nevertheless, the Magic start with several advantages: They're younger than the Celtics (but who isn't?). They will have fewer distractions than the Heat (but who won't?). They have Dwight Howard.

Baltimore is a good baseball city. I think most people can agree with that. But what good is it to be a good baseball city when the baseball team is not going to be any good for years to come? Peter Angelos has made nothing but bad decisions regarding personnel for as long as I can remember. Now he doesn't want to re-sign one of the best pitchers in Orioles history because he is demanding so much money. Lest we forget how much money an underachieving Albert Belle is making. Disregarding Cal Ripken, Mike Mussina is the cornerstone of this franchise, and now he is going to leave.

Here's a look at how the NBA Eastern Conference seeds look as the playoffs loom. 1. Cavaliers Record since break: 28-8. Why they can win the East: No one else may show up. Actually, it only seems they never lose. Throw out three weeks and they're on a 70-victory pace. That's with Shaquille O'Neal having missed 26 games this season, Delonte West 22, Mo Williams 11 and LeBron James three. Not that there's any mystery: James, last season's overwhelming choice as MVP, raised his game again, prompting Magic coach Stan Van Gundy to name him the presumptive MVP through 2018.

WASHINGTON - The Toronto Raptors set a nice little trap last night at MCI Center, and the Washington Wizards fell right in. The Raptors, who had dropped 12 of their previous 13 games, came into town with eight players, the NBA minimum requirement for a game. Of those eight, three non-starters were signed to 10-day contracts. And to compound matters, the Wizards scored the game's first 10 points. In other words, the triple whammy was on Washington and the Wizards succumbed, 84-75, in perhaps the worst loss of the season, given the circumstances.

A DAY FOR rumbling and rambling: Let's forget about all the criteria the Bowl Championship Series use for selecting Nebraska No. 1 and Oklahoma No. 2. The best college football team in the country is Miami, and the Hurricanes should get a shot at the national championship once they beat Temple, Boston College, Syracuse (No. 19 in the Associated Press poll), Washington (No. 11) and Virginia Tech (No. 12) to close out the season. Oklahoma plays great defense and Nebraska is not far behind, but both teams are limited offensively.

Down, not outNine reasons why ACC won't be as weak as people predict:1. Tim Duncan. There may not be many established big men in the ACC, but the best one in the country plays at Wake Forest.2. Mike Krzyzewski's return at Duke. The Blue Devils won't be back at Final Four form, but they'll be back at a very competitive level.3. Virginia's backcourt tandem. Harold Deane and three-point sharpshooter Curtis Staples make up one of the nation's best backcourts.4. Maryland's revival. Coming off two straight Sweet 16 seasons, the Terps are on the verge of becoming a perennial ACC power again.
