The memory is a decade old, but Kris Musselman has not forgotten any of its revolting details. As she sat in the stands watching her son, Eric, play a high school basketball game on a visitor's court, she could hardly believe what she was seeing. While Eric played, fans hurled hot dogs at him and held up signs, viciously displaying their distaste for his father, Bill, who was coaching the Cleveland Cavaliers. "The whole way home I cried," Kris said.

The Lakers have categorized Darius Morris's injured left wrist that he suffered in a D-Fenders game on Saturday as "bruised," and are listing him as day to day. Morris attended the D-Fenders' game Monday against Idaho and participated in warmups. But he remained on the bench while wearing a brace to support his wrist. Morris was then examined Tuesday by Dr. Stevan Shin of the Kerlan Jobe-Orthopedic Clinic. After averaging 2.7 points and 1.1 assists in 10.3 minutes through 13 games with the Lakers, Morris posted 21 points on 43% shooting and four assists in 28 minutes in the D-Fenders ' 99-98 win Saturday over the Dakota Wizards . D-Fenders Coach Eric Musselman said he remained impressed with Morris' playmaking abilities and his positive attitude but noted that he's still learning the team's plays and catching up on his conditioning.

The Sacramento Kings fired Eric Musselman as coach on Friday after one tumultuous season. They finished 33-49 and missed the playoffs after reaching the postseason eight consecutive times under Rick Adelman. "There is no particular joy in making this decision," said Geoff Petrie, the Kings' president of basketball operations. "However, I feel it is in the best interest of everyone going forward." Adelman was fired by owners Joe and Gavin Maloof last summer against the apparent wishes of Petrie.

They stand head and shoulders apart. In other words, when 5-foot 7-inch Eric Musselman stands next to 7-0 Scott Thompson, his head is even with Thompson's shoulders. But that's not the long or short of it. They also are best friends, roommates and teammates on the University of San Diego basketball team. Silly how opposites attract. One of them, is headed perhaps for the NBA, his best basketball clearly ahead of him. He is insecure in his talents and in his ability to relate.
