Free-agent forward Rick Fox will decide which NBA team he wants to play for today or Wednesday, his agent said, with the Lakers one of the two leading contenders despite salary-cap and geographical shortcomings. Bill Strickland would not identify which other team is high in the running, but when asked if fans in Los Angeles have reason to be encouraged, said, "Very much so." Four other teams are among the finalists.

It didn't seem possible that "Dancing With the Stars" could outdo itself in the casting department. After last season's winning combination of Kate Gosselin, Shannen Doherty and Pamela Anderson, senior producer and head of casting Deena Katz decided she had two choices: retire or up her game. Katz opted to challenge herself and wound up with a Season 11 cast that is bound to get the whole country on its feet. Seriously, Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino ("Jersey Shore") is going to cha cha cha and compete against singer Michael Bolton, Kyle Massey ("Cory in the House")

Rick Fox is sitting in front of a mirror with his head covered in shaving cream and a disposable Bic razor in his hand. It's a Monday afternoon in a deserted furniture warehouse in Glendale, and halfway through a fashion photo shoot he's decided that his locks, which have taken a year and a half to grow, must come off. His wife, actress and singer Vanessa Williams, collects the curls in a Ziploc bag while his 22-month old daughter, Sasha, lets out a wail.

With the Lakers just starting the finals, it's a safe prediction that Rick Fox--a four-year veteran of the team--will not be grabbing many headlines away from superstars Shaq and Kobe. But Fox is known for his devastatingly effective defense on the court as well as for being a clubhouse peacemaker (a handy talent, especially this season).

Dateline Afghanistan: Phil Jackson reports on the progress of the Northern Alliance in the Afghan war: "Well, after weeks of fighting and despite running their offensives incorrectly and just relying on their talent for battle, it appears that the Northern Alliance troops have managed to win a few battles and take some cities from the Taliban. They're definitely off to a slow start but as the war drags on we may see them develop as a fighting force." David Ando Rancho Palos Verdes The Times' photographers seem to catch Shaquille O'Neal quite often with his tongue sticking out of his mouth.

I'm sorry, but Kobe's traveling circus, I mean the Lakers, could not make the playoffs in the Eastern Conference, let alone compete in the West. This team, if you want to call it that, is just ridiculous. Mitch Kupchak has no ability whatsoever to assemble a team let alone figure out who has talent. I mean, come on, trade Gary Payton and Rick Fox to get three bench players. We've just become the Knicks (large payroll, no talent to win). Only difference is we have one potential All-Star.

The fact that the Lakers are getting on a plane and flying nearly 3,000 miles to go back to Boston tells me they still want to be in this series. That may seem obvious, but I've seen teams, especially on Father's Day, be content to go home with their tails between their legs and stay home with their families. This Lakers team hasn't had enough yet.

Rick Fox, a starter on the last two Laker championship teams who had a recurring role as team facilitator in seven seasons with the franchise, retired Thursday because of health problems that have plagued him for more than a year. Fox, traded in August to the Boston Celtics, had one year left on his contract at $5.1 million; he reached an undisclosed financial settlement with the Celtics.

The Lakers continued to cobble together a new identity Friday by trading Gary Payton, who never quite fit despite his snug nickname, and dependable veteran Rick Fox to the Boston Celtics, a move that made the Lakers younger and even less recognizable than the unit that bottomed out in Detroit seven weeks ago.

Kudos to Rick Fox, an athlete who actually seems to have his priorities straight. Fox made the decision to be with his wife when she gave birth and risked missing participating in a playoff game. Seems the logical thing to do to 99% of the population, but I know there have been plenty of athletes who have not gone to be with a dying parent, a sick child or a pregnant wife, all in the name of trying to win a "big" game. Fox is my MVP for this series, win or lose. His baby is going to have a very special father.

In a postseason of firsts, Rick Fox and actress-singer wife Vanessa Williams enjoyed another landmark this weekend. It was the first time they had seen each other since before the playoffs began, a span of more than two months. While Fox was helping the Lakers reach the NBA Finals, Williams was leading her Broadway show, "Into the Woods," to the Tony Awards.
