A terrible week in sports just got worse. First we lose DiMaggio, and then the Lakers strip us of Eddie. I realize that Glen Rice is a great addition, but Eddie did not deserve to be treated as poorly as the Jerrys treated him. Apparently, they mistook Eddie for an old, beat-up baseball card, offering to trade him to anyone who would listen. I heard he was offered to the Bulls, at one point, for an autographed photograph of Michael Jordan and a round-trip ticket to Tahiti (Jordan couldn't sign the photo because of his finger injury so the deal was off)

A toddler allegedly shot by his mother remained in critical condition Sunday at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, said family spokesman Eddie Jones. A hospital spokeswoman confirmed that the unidentified boy remained alive. Jones said the 1 1/2 -year- old's name is Michael Jr., but he did not provide his last name. The mother, 25-year-old LaTonya Dixon, was being held at a Los Angeles County jail in lieu of more than $1-million bail. On Saturday, police said, Dixon shot her two sons, killing 5-year-old Christian and wounding the younger boy before standing on her balcony and threatening to kill herself.

He flew home and was examined by team physician Stephen Lombardo Tuesday. "At least three of the weeks, we don't have games," Coach Del Harris said from Honolulu. "That doesn't help him.

"Death of a Salesman": The plotting is ham-fisted, the female characters unsatisfying and it's too long, but I defy you to look away from the psychological train wreck that is the world of Willy Loman, whose ride "on a smile and a shoeshine" is heading for an ugly end. This staging of Arthur Miller's 1949 warhorse by Miss O Productions features a vehement, brave performance from Eddie Jones as the compulsive, ferociously hopeful salesman self-destructing from his addiction to success.

"Players are made in the playoffs." --Eddie Jones * Or unmade. The Lakers' starting shooting guard arrives at the playoffs anew and finds his reputation there a work in progress, even after three seasons, five rounds, 23 games, the shiny performance in 1996 against Houston and the proud showing of 1997 against Portland. Because there are the counterbalances, especially noteworthy now since Jones' disappearance in the second round last spring against Utah.

The search party that left the Puget Sound region empty-handed reconvenes in Los Angeles, looking for at least a trace of Eddie Jones, who once played for the Lakers. That was before this first-round playoff series against the Seattle SuperSonics, tied at 1-1 heading into Game 3 tonight at 7:30 at the Forum. Before he disappeared.

Laker swingman Eddie Jones was walking off the court after scoring a game-high 25 points in the Rookie All-Star game Saturday at the America West Arena when an NBA official grabbed him. "Eddie," the man said, "get back on the court, you were voted the MVP." Jones scored 16 points in the second half as the Green team overcame a 16-point deficit to force the game into overtime. Dallas Maverick guard Jason Kidd, the second player selected in the 1994 NBA draft, made a layup with 3.

So the Lakers beat the Houston Rockets, 107-96, Sunday night at the Forum. So what? That's what the Lakers say. So what that they moved out to a 1 1/2-game cushion over Houston for fifth place in the Western Conference with 15 games left? So what that they improved to 3-0 against the Rockets to clinch the season series, which, as the first tiebreaker for playoff positioning, essentially adds another game to L.A.'s lead?

It has been so long, Eddie Jones' return generated little fanfare. No big buildup or outpouring of sentiment for Jones' first game against the Lakers in Los Angeles since he and Elden Campbell were traded to the Charlotte Hornets on March 10, 1999. Just a warm ovation in the pregame introductions and a few of Jones' old No. 6 Laker jerseys scattered around Staples Center (plus a couple with his original No. 25, for the truly old school).

The NBA's top young talent continued a rapid and intriguing Florida migration Monday, potentially presaging a marked shift in league power. Thirty-one days of wining, dining, leaks, declarations, flip-flops and jolting momentum changes--but no concrete deals--climaxed with a wild nine-player sign-and-trade agreement that will send former Laker guard Eddie Jones from the Charlotte Hornets to the Miami Heat.

Tuning up for his first game against the Lakers tonight, Eddie Jones bounced in a 19-foot jumper with 2.2 seconds left, giving the Charlotte Hornets a 95-93 victory over the 76ers on Tuesday at Philadelphia. Jones had 27 points against Allen Iverson in a duel of the East's starting all-star backcourt. Iverson, who had 28 points, was closely guarded when he passed up a chance at the game-winner. He passed to Aaron McKie, who barely got off a 20-footer that was short at the buzzer.
