It was impossible to ignore the multihued jackets Shaq, Kobe and the rest of the Lakers donned immediately after their victory Wednesday night in the NBA Finals. The 2002 Championship "Three-Peat" leather jackets, emblazoned with the L.A. skyline and palm trees, were created by L.A. designer Jeff Hamilton, who has done hundreds of custom jackets for sports teams, as well as for celebs such as Madonna, Michael Jackson and former President Bill Clinton.

Poor Jeff Hamilton (April 30). "He just doesn't know how much more he can take." "He hopes he can survive the next day." All because he is just a platoon player at third base for the Dodgers. Wake up, Jeff! Join the real world. "Everybody is ragging him and all he wants to know is, why?" Read your own quotes, Jeff, and see if you can't figure it out. BARBRA N. KEENE South Gate

Cicero once said: "To stumble twice against the same stone is a disgrace." Considering the cast of characters the Dodgers employed at third base last season and their mediocre performances: Dave Anderson (.978 field percentage), Phil Garner (.947), Jeff Hamilton (.935), Mickey Hatcher (.929) and Tracy Woodson (.958) for a combined sub-par figure of .949, 30 points below the league leader, Buddy Bell of Cincinnati (.979), how could they even consider Mike Marshall or Pedro Guerrero the panacea at the hot corner?
