S chwing!!? Cha-ching!? If it's 1992 and you're running across nonsense words, you're probably watching TV with your kids or looking at the back of Dennis Rodman's head. Like hieroglyphics on a pyramid, these messages Rodman has had painstakingly carved into his haircut must tell us something about the nature of the being inside. But what? Cha-ching! is from a commercial for a convenience store. Schwing!! is from "Wayne's World," another of your teen-agers' favorites.

Like almost everyone who has ever appeared in or watched an NBA game, Dennis Rodman has an opinion in the Kobe Bryant-LeBron James "who's better?" debate. He just picked an unusual forum to voice it: the "Judge Jeanine Pirro" syndicated courtroom television show. During Monday's upcoming show, Rodman sues a friend/assistant for allegedly gambling away $4,000 of Rodman's money in an Atlantic City, N.J., casino. And he was asked the obvious question: Kobe or LeBron? "That's an easy question," Rodman says.

Kobe Bryant was late for Sunday's pregame activities, but Ron Artest arrived on time, with a new blond dye job and several inscriptions in his hair. He etched the word "defense" in three languages — Japanese, Hebrew and Hindi, he said. In plain English, however, his defense was poor Sunday against the Orlando Magic. His assignment for most of the game, Vince Carter , had 25 points, including 10 points on free throws in the first quarter. The Magic beat the Lakers, 96-94.

Dennis Rodman can't stand still. The energy seems to start down near his toes and flow up through his arms and legs like a current of electricity. His dark eyes dart around the Detroit Pistons' training room, his feet move and his body appears to be making one continuous adjustment. All this while standing up. It's hours before his first game back from a three-game suspension, a slap worth almost $100,000 in fines.

A deposition from Chicago Bull star Dennis Rodman will be included in a lawsuit over a boating accident on Lewisville Lake in Texas in which a woman was maimed. The Lewisville Leader reported that Rodman, who grew up in nearby Dallas, was questioned last Nov. 29 for knowledge he might have had of the 1995 hit-and-run accident, which is still unsolved. Rodman reportedly owned a cigarette-style boat like the one involved in the accident and was using it on Lewisville Lake at the time.
