The Christians against the lions? Maybe that's what you're getting in the NBA these days. What kind of a matchup is Kareem Abdul-Jabbar vs. Tyrone Bogues? Akeem Olajuwon vs. Spud Webb? Basketball is a vexing sport.

It seems appropriate that the Lakers' Magic Johnson is the man who broke Oscar Robertson's NBA record for assists. Like Robertson, Johnson, 31, who had 19 assists Monday night to give him 9,898 and break the record of 9,887, is not your everyday point guard. Bob Cousy answered that description. John Stockton does today--little guys at 6 feet 1 and 175. Robertson was 6-5 and 215, and Johnson is 6-9 and 220. Cousy was the prototype playmaker with the Boston Celtics from 1950-63.

A loud crash reverberated through the dining room at a decibel level that made silverware quiver like tuning forks. It sounded as if someone had just taken a dive straight through a plate-glass window. Bobby Hull looked around to see what happened. A waitress stood over a tray of dishes she had dropped, but Hull had a better idea of whom to blame. "Uh, oh," Hull said. "Nitschke's doing the dishes again," Amid a din of laughter, Ray Nitschke was too busy to reply.
