Magic Johnson, who rode in on his charisma and credibility Monday to help restore Mike Tyson's boxing career, now should turn his attention to an area in which he has more expertise, resolving the NBA labor dispute. Considering that the players' union has called a meeting Thursday in Las Vegas, he wouldn't even have to change hotels. Unless he feels obliged to visit Kosovo first for a closer look at that situation.

I called up Cedars-Sinai, Centinela, all the big L.A. hospitals. "Do you take donors?" "What?" "I want to be a donor," I said. "You mean money?" "No. I can't spare any money," I said. "How about organs?" "What?" "Can you spare any organs?" "That's exactly what I'm calling about," I said. "Splendid. What can we put you down for? Eyes? Liver? Heart? Kidneys?" "Hamstrings," I said. "Pardon me?" "Hamstrings." "You want to be a hamstring donor?"

It seems appropriate that the Lakers' Magic Johnson is the man who broke Oscar Robertson's NBA record for assists. Like Robertson, Johnson, 31, who had 19 assists Monday night to give him 9,898 and break the record of 9,887, is not your everyday point guard. Bob Cousy answered that description. John Stockton does today--little guys at 6 feet 1 and 175. Robertson was 6-5 and 215, and Johnson is 6-9 and 220. Cousy was the prototype playmaker with the Boston Celtics from 1950-63.

The early days of Chick Hearn at the microphone were also the days of Wilt "the Stilt" Chamberlain and Jerry West, otherwise known as "Mr. Clutch." Hearn's career as the Laker announcer's career progressed through Magic and Silk. It was no surprise when, after watching forward James Worthy produce one clutch performance after another, Hearn coined the name "Big Game James." Hearn, who died earlier this week, hailed from a more colorful time in our sporting past.
