There's nothing quite like sports when it comes to bringing a father and son closer together. Jeff Schultz of the Atlanta Journal recently wrote about the relationship between former NBA star Rick Barry and his basketball-playing sons--Scooter, Jon, Brent and Drew. Said Rick: "I try to watch (their) games and take notes. Then I ask (them) if they want my advice. If they do, I tell them what I think they have to do to get better. But I never force my opinions on them."

Fred Newman, Caltech graduate, once tested his free-throw shooting ability against Rick Barry, at the time the most accurate free-throw shooter in NBA history. Not surprisingly, Newman lost. In fairness, though, he was the only one shooting blindfolded. Earlier, Newman set a Guinness world record for consecutive free throws made with eyes covered, a feat noted by Barry after the Basketball Hall of Famer outshot Newman during an episode of the 1980s reality television show "That's Incredible!"

The player who led the Golden State Warriors to the only NBA championship in their history will be sitting in the Oakland Coliseum Arena this afternoon when the Warriors and Lakers play the third game of their Western Conference semifinal series. But ask Rick Barry if he feels any emotional link to his former team, and he shakes his head. "I don't think I severed the ties," he said Friday. "I think they did. They basically wrote me off."

Skip Bayless in the San Jose Mercury News, on improving the Golden State Warriors: "I floated the idea in December while serving as a guest host on KNBR. I asked the audience to give me one good reason why Warriors' management shouldn't give Rick Barry a chance to coach the team. "The lines lit up the way the scoreboard did in 1975, when Barry led the team to the NBA championship. In three hours I didn't hear from a single caller opposed to the idea.

Brent Barry, who can be as sarcastic as his father, Hall of Fame guard Rick Barry, didn't gloat after his debut as the Clippers' starting shooting guard in Saturday's 98-94 exhibition victory over the Vancouver Grizzlies. Barry, who averaged 7.5 points, 2.6 assists and 1.9 rebounds in 18.5 minutes last season, made five of eight shots, including two of three three-point shots, and scored 13 points in 24 minutes.

Remember how major league baseball players gushed over the contribution of Curt Flood, who by challenging baseball's reserve system in court effectively ended his own career but made possible the fat salaries players today earn? Footnote: Not one active player was present at Flood's recent funeral in Los Angeles. In fact, the only players from the post-Flood era present were Steve Garvey, Don Baylor and Doug DeCinces.

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.

Oregon State guard Brent Barry was shooting a free throw underhanded in an exhibition game against a team from New Zealand when an opponent halted play. "Can he do that?" the player asked. "Isn't that illegal? He's just trying to show us up." After assuring the player that it was within the rules, the referee said, "That's the way his dad did it."

If this is June 22, it must be baseball season. . . . However, the topic of the day is where the Chicago Bulls rank among NBA teams in history. . . . For sure, they rank No. 1 in 1993, the same as in '92 and '91. They were better than the Phoenix Suns this year, the Portland Trail Blazers last year and the Lakers two years ago. . . .
