I read the entire sports section after the Lakers' three-point loss in Game 2 to the Spurs. I read about the blame belonging to (choose one): Kobe Bryant, Kurt Rambis, Glen Rice and Derek Fisher. At no time did I see one mention of Shaq "I'll always make one" O'Neal going two for 10 at the line. Why not? ROD CLARIDA Brea

Congratulations to Mitch Kupchak! For a decade, Jerry West, the greatest general manager in NBA history, struggled unsuccessfully to land an established power forward. In one bold move, Kupchak exchanged Glen Rice, an expendable player, for Horace Grant, an established power forward, tough rebounder, strong defender and adequate shooter. He also upgraded the Lakers' bench by acquiring Greg Foster, an aggressive backup power forward and center. Against all odds, with no leverage but demonstrating patience, wisdom and courage, Kupchak emerged from West's giant shadow and significantly improved the Lakers.

Forward Glen Rice, who has several connections to the controversy, spent hours Saturday marching in Westwood as part of the protest over the Elian Gonzalez situation. "For one thing, my wife is Cuban," he said after making seven of 12 shots and scoring 18 points Sunday. "I'm going to support her. And also, being a parent and seeing Elian get snatched out of there, that's not something you want to see happen to anyone's child. "I was out there a few hours. But if that's what it takes."

For all their awesome size and sweeping glory, the Lakers' current problems can be found in their smallest parts. The eyes. One of their three stars is not looking at the coach again. The coach is not looking at him. Their two other stars are glaring at each other again. The coach is glaring at them. With the trading deadline only 15 days away, every other player is looking over his shoulder. While everyone in town thinks the answer is as plain as the purple glasses on Phil Jackson's face.
