Attention, A.C. Green: There's some good news and some bad news for you. The good news is that the Lakers made you their first-round pick in Tuesday's NBA draft and project you as a future member of their front line. The bad news is that the front line is set, for now, and first you have to make the team. "I don't think it will be that hard," the 6-9, 218-pound Oregon State forward said by phone from Portland. "It just depends how hard I want to work."

Heavyweight boxer Mitch (Blood) Green was listed in fair condition at the Queens Hospital Center this morning after being stabbed in the thigh, a hospital spokeswoman said. Green, who brawled with heavyweight champion Mike Tyson on a New York street corner last summer, told hospital authorities he had been stabbed at 4:15 p.m. Monday at East 125th Street and Second Avenue in Manhattan. Hospital officials, who called city police, reported that Green was stabbed "by a person unknown to him for an unknown reason" who then fled, said police spokesman Detective James Coleman.

During the Laker game Tuesday evening, the audio portion of the telecast was interrupted. It was the best part of the CBS coverage. As for the gravelly voiced Heinsohn: There is not question he bleeds Celtic green, it is just a matter of how fast it flows. Thank God for Chick Hearn. JEFF NUZZI San Diego

Pat Riley has to realize that there's a time for foolin' around and a time to dance with them that brung ya. The current rotation of players has upset the patterns and rhythms developed over the past two years, and the results speak for themselves. Most important is to get A. C. Green back as a starter and increase his playing time. It's ludicrous that A. C. should be the ninth player into so many recent games. Green's intensity on defense and on the offensive boards gives a lift to the other Lakers.

Calling Cecil N. Green "a good law enforcement vote in Sacramento," Atty. Gen. John Van de Kamp said Saturday that he and five major law enforcement groups have endorsed the Norwalk city councilman over Assemblyman Wayne Grisham (R-Norwalk) for the 33rd Senate District seat. Green has "the virtually unanimous support of law enforcement," Van de Kamp told about 150 placard-carrying Green supporters at a rally outside the Democratic candidate's Norwalk headquarters.

The shameless can talk about: "I Love Money." Why, yes, this is the most honest reality show title we've ever seen too! See former VH1 reality show contestants from "Flavor of Love," "Rock of Love" and "I Love New York" do reality show-type things -- i.e. a spitting contest, time on a stripper pole -- for $250,000 at 9 p.m. We predict record-breaking ratings followed by the apocalypse. (Today) If you've been counting down to "The Dark Knight," you'll want to talk about: GothamCableNews.

The first time he faced enemy fighters -- a swarm of German Messerschmitts on the southern coast of Sardinia on May 19, 1943 -- P-40 pilot Herschel "Herky" Green was convinced he was going to die. "Your heart just about jumps out of your damn body," he once recalled. The 22-year-old Kentucky native not only survived his first mission -- despite being wounded and suffering severe damage to his plane -- but he also scored his first kill and was rapidly on his way to becoming the leading ace of the 15th Air Force, a record he held until he was grounded by headquarters after his 100th combat mission.

A.C. Green doesn't need any more reminders of that two-handed slam dunk he missed last weekend against the Denver Nuggets. For one thing, there were national TV cameras present to capture the moment--Kareem Abdul-Jabbar throwing a full-court football pass to Green, who storms down the lane all alone, rises majestically for the shot . . . only to see it rejected by the rim and carom into the seats. "As soon as I got home there was a message on my answering machine," Green said Saturday.
