BOSTON AT NEW YORK: Monday at 4:30 p.m. PDT. TV: NBA TV Here's a fun game, since lots of people like to root against the Celtics and Knicks (and the Miami Heat and Lakers) since both are struggling and someone has to lose. Both teams were success stories at the All-Star break before making dramatic/dizzy trades. The Knicks moved everyone on the roster over 6-8½ in bare feet to get Carmelo Anthony. The Celtics traded Kendrick Perkins, the heart of their defense, for Jeff Green, who backs up Paul Pierce, and Nenad Krstic, a misplaced power forward starting at center until Shaquille O'Neal gets back.

He plays basketball, too? With Michael Jordan dragging and Scottie Pippen, uh, off his game, Coach Phil Jackson searched through his Unmentionabulls for offensive help, only to see the unlikeliest of them all step up. Live from New York, it was Dennis Rodman! For once, notoriety had nothing to do with books, cross-dressing or Madonna.

NEW YORK - How bad is it? I see Lakers Coach Mike D'Antoni having lunch Thursday with Jack McCallum, who wrote about his time with D'Antoni in Phoenix in a book: ":07 Seconds or Less. " And I'm asking D'Antoni if he's already working on a sequel: "24 Games or Less: My Time With the Lakers. " This is before the Knicks are running the Lakers out of Madison Square Garden and before Carmelo Anthony gets hurt so the Lakers can rally and make Magic Johnson sweat a little.
