What was that about the Bulls being tired? "A lot of people have said things about our physical tiredness or whatever, but our mental toughness is there," Jordan said. "We are mentally strong to be where we are, and certainly mentally strong to defend what we have. "Physically, we may not. They may be a much more physical, gifted team, but mentally, that counts for something. And I don't think that should ever be overlooked." * Hey Karl, it's Jud Buechler, not Jed.

Kenny Anderson signed a five-year, $14.5 million guaranteed contract with the New Jersey Nets, but it was at the expense of former Poway High School basketball standout Jud Buechler, who was waived Friday to accommodate the signing. Buechler was part of a bizarre play by Nets owners to sign Georgia Tech's Anderson, the second player selected in the NBA draft, and remain under the NBA salary cap.

This just in: "Michael Jordan tough to stop. Film at 11." (So Jordan got 55, huh? Who were the Bulls playing, the Denver Broncos?) You're not really surprised, are you? I mean, it's not like Jud Buechler did it. Once or twice a year Jordan does this. He's like Pat Sajak spinning the Wheel of Fortune -- whichever team comes up, Jordan drops 50 or so on them, and they go home with some lovely parting gifts and a home version of the game.

Loma, were named San Diego County's boys' and girls' basketball players of the year Saturday at The Times' annual awards banquet in Anaheim.

Jud Buechler, Arizona power forward, drove for a layup three minutes into the Pacific 10 Conference championship game against Stanford. Stanford defender Eric Reveno moved in to block the shot and accidentally hit Buechler in the head with an elbow. Blood then started to drip onto Buechler's uniform. "He took a bite out of my head. There were teeth marks," Buechler joked. "The bleeding didn't really bother me.

Jud Buechler watched his destiny unfold on a big-screen television at his family's home in Del Mar Wednesday night. Amid picturesque walls that tell the story of how he led Poway High School to three consecutive San Diego Section championships and later starred at Arizona, Buechler was welcomed into the NBA fraternity by the Seattle SuperSonics. And then he was traded to New Jersey.

At the start of every University of Arizona basketball game, Jud Buechler plants himself firmly on the bench. He knows well that he won't get half the playing time he did at Poway High School and that his personal statistics will pale in comparison to his high school averages. And that's just fine. "Things are going great. I could not be better," Buechler, a 6-foot 6-inch sophomore for the Wildcats, said by phone this week.

The names Jud Buechler and Dominick Johnson are prominent in any talk of Poway High School's basketball team. They should be. They are impossible to overlook, physically and statistically. Buechler is 6-feet 6 1/2-inches; Johnson is 6-6. Buechler led San Diego County in scoring (23.4 points per game and Johnson (22.9) was No. 2. Together they averaged more than 46 points and 20 rebounds per game.

Buechler, who helped Poway High School win three San Diego Section basketball titles from 1984-86, was waived Dec. 16 by San Antonio shortly before he discovered the navicular bone in his right wrist was fractured. The injury will require five to seven weeks to heal. The second-year forward out of Arizona was met at the Oakland Airport by Golden State Coach Don Nelson and signed the contract at Nelson's home.
