Tim Harris once played goalie for the Los Angeles Lazers, an indoor soccer team owned by Jerry Buss. Harris, now an executive with the Lakers, said that as he looks back it was obvious what Buss was doing. "He was setting up these labs for his kids to learn," Harris said. "That's how Jeanie learned and that's how I learned. Jeanie and I chuckle at it now. It wasn't that long ago we were sitting in roller hockey league meetings and now we're sitting in NBA league meetings. " Buss earned his fame and accolades by owning the Lakers and Kings.

He knows that UCLA basketball coach Steve Lavin, who has taken five teams to the Sweet 16, is a dead man walking because the new athletic director has already fired a football coach whose team wasn't struggling nearly as much as Lavin's. Such is the life of a high-profile coach.

Santa Ana City Manager Robert Bobb isn't modest about the development he predicts for his city: a 21-story office tower to accentuate the downtown, a 67-acre high-tech center, a $400-million shopping mall and now an arena he hopes will attract a professional basketball team. Bobb says the domed arena and the hoped-for National Basketball Assn. team could spark his efforts to redevelop an aging city. "I think it's clear we don't have a Boston Commons or even a Seal Beach Pier.

The wave isn't that big, shoulder high perhaps. Still, it's powerful enough to snap Chouinard's surfboard and slam him into the sand. Chouinard comes up sputtering, but unfazed. The board's nose dangles limp and useless, like a broken limb.

How does a person get himself removed from a mailing list? It's not the political stuff or the underwear catalogues or the encouraging letters from Ed McMahon that I want to stop getting. What I would like to stop is the flood of books written by and about New York athletes. Don't get me wrong, they are all fine books, every one of them, all potential Pulitzer material. Full of insight and anecdote. Penetrating, thought provoking, riveting. Or so say the book liners.
