Georgia Tech Coach Bobby Cremins never saw guard Jon Barry play before signing him, taking him on the recommendation of Barry's father, Rick, a member of the NBA Hall of Fame. "I'd gotten to know Rick well, and I respected his opinion on basketball," Cremins said. "I'm sure he was exaggerating a little when he told me how good a shooter Jon was, but he spoke so highly of Jon that I thought Jon might fit in." He certainly has, leading Georgia Tech to its eighth consecutive NCAA tournament bid.

We interrupt this city's ongoing question of Kobe Bryant or Shaquille O'Neal to pose another one: Kobe Bryant or Chris Webber? As in, who is the most valuable player in the Western Conference? The early nod goes to Webber, for the simple fact that the Sacramento Kings are doing better than the Lakers. He's averaging 26.8 points, 11.6 rebounds and 2.3 blocked shots--among the league's top 10 in all three categories. The Kings are 29-12 and atop the Pacific Division.

A day after landing forward Rick Fox, their No. 1 off-season target, the Lakers on Wednesday moved to solidify the backcourt and, as expected, signed free agent Jon Barry to a one-year deal worth $272,250. Barry chose to come to Los Angeles, where his younger brother Brent plays for the Clippers, rather than re-sign with the Atlanta Hawks.

The Lakers have seen the difference the Arco Arena fans have made on the Sacramento Kings. They definitely have heard it. After Sacramento's 99-91 victory in Game 3 of their first-round playoff series, the Kings have beaten the Lakers twice and lost to them by one point at home, including regular-season games. "We're a completely different ballclub in this arena," King guard Jon Barry said. "It's so evident . . . we feed off this crowd's energy."

Clipper guard Brent Barry, who was nicknamed Air Bones by his teammates after winning the NBA slam dunk contest in 1995, is ready to soar. Barry, who didn't start a game last season after sitting out the first month of the season because of a thumb injury, will be the team's starting shooting guard when Coach Bill Fitch opens his fourth boot camp for the Clippers. Barry's playing time was cut from 24 minutes a game to 18.5 as Fitch employed a six-guard rotation.

Rick's kids, Rick's kids, Rick's kids, they can't get away from it. So what if Rick Barry divorced their mother, wasn't around when they were growing up, didn't coach them, teach them to shoot free throws or instill that preternatural court sense they all share? Everyone always says the same thing whenever Brent, Jon, Scooter and Drew do anything on a basketball floor: Just Like Rick.
