Owner Harold Katz of the Philadelphia 76ers has challenged Charles Barkley's suggestion of racism in the makeup of the team. Barkley earlier in the week predicted that Katz would give in to what Barkley said was fan pressure and keep backup center David Hoppen as the team's only white player on the 12-man roster. Katz said he had never considered keeping a white player to avoid having an all-black team. Race never entered discussions with Coach Jim Lynam and General Manager Gene Shue, he said.

Michael Jordan a Philadelphia 76er? Julius Erving a Chicago Bull? If Harold Katz had had his way, both might have happened -- meaning sports history would be very different. The Bulls would almost certainly not have won the six NBA championships they captured behind Jordan. And Philadelphia would very likely not be amid a major-title drought that extends back to 1983, when Erving led the 76ers to an NBA crown.

Harold Katz, an American attorney living in Tel Aviv, on Thursday denied any involvement in the Jonathan Jay Pollard spy case. Sources in the Reagan Administration have said U.S. investigators believe Katz's Washington apartment was used to photocopy classified military documents obtained by Pollard, a Navy analyst. In a telephone interview, Katz said: "Yes, that's my name that's being mentioned. But I can tell you that the report is totally untrue.

Philadelphia 76er General Manager John Nash resigned Thursday to "pursue other opportunities," but club owner Harold Katz has refused to accept the resignation in hopes Nash will change his mind. Nash, who became general manager in June 1986, said he told Katz of his intention after the last regular-season game.

Israeli officials have stymied efforts by U.S. investigators to question an American living in Israel who they believe may have funneled money to convicted spy Jonathan Jay Pollard, sources familiar with the case said Wednesday. The sources identified the man as Harold Katz, a lawyer who has joint citizenship in the United States and Israel. Richard A. Green, Katz's Washington attorney, denied that his client had any connection with Pollard, who recently was sentenced to life in prison.

Harold Katz, the Philadelphia 76ers' quotable and often controversial owner, was trying mightily to keep his anger and disappointment to himself after watching the 76ers' unimpressive 117-113 victory over Golden State last Wednesday. But when a local sportscaster spotted Katz milling in the locker room and asked for a brief interview, Katz could hold it back no longer. He unleashed a blistering attack on his players that one long-time observer rated near the top of his famous blowups.

The Washington Bullets have yet to bestow some catchy sobriquet upon the assemblage of bodies that will make up their 1986-87 team. The rumblings promised by Thunder and Lightning have dissipated with the trade of center Jeff Ruland to Philadelphia and the hazy status of free-agent guard Gus Williams. The previous slogan--"Bullets Fever--Catch It"--fizzled amid sub-.500 finishes. So, this season the Bullets will attempt a novel approach: Management will rely on talent to provide the punch line.

For some dental professionals, it's little more than a marketing ploy. For a specialist in Philadelphia, it's a rip-off of his earlier work. But for 75-year-old Frances Brower, it was an answer to her prayer to be rescued from the bad breath that has haunted her since early adolescence. "Recently I said to the Lord, 'Dear God, this has been going on since I was 11 years old," said Brower, who was moved to prayer by a 6-year-old granddaughter's complaint about Grandma's halitosis.
