Ask Kirk Sampson about business and he smiles broadly. It's booming, he says, before pausing a beat and explaining: He's in the foreclosure business. In 35 years as a real estate attorney, the 61-year-old Sampson has never seen a worse economy. "I see people hurting every day," he says, and by then his smile has vanished. Sampson doesn't see Washington doing much to create jobs. To the contrary, President Obama, whom Sampson supported in 2008, seems in over his head. Congress is gridlocked, Sampson says, and the pitchfork battalions of the "tea party" movement have only contributed to the stalemate by opposing any attempts at compromise.

My brother Mike was heading home from serving in the Air Force in England to be discharged in August 1945. I hadn't seen my brother in 3 1/2 years. I was one of the sailors on a troop train leaving Sampson, N.Y., bound for the West Coast. At Indianapolis, two troop trains stopped side by side, separated by about 20 feet of concrete. Guys were hollering out, where are you from? One of my buddies two cars ahead of mine heard a shout: Youngstown, Ohio. Come to find out it was my brother Mike.

There are echoes of the Magic Johnson-Paul Westhead affair in Houston, where All-Star center Akeem Olajuwon last week blasted Rocket Coach Bill Fitch. Like Magic, Olajuwon took it upon himself to stand up and voice criticism of the coach--thus becoming a lightning rod for public reaction. His complaints were shared by many of Olajuwon's Rocket teammates privately, as was the case with the Lakers and Westhead. "I don't know my role.

Ralph Sampson of the Houston Rockets, with two injured ankles and with his contract expiring at the end of the season, said Thursday that he wants to complete his career at Houston, but the next move is up to owner Charlie Thomas. With Sampson and forward Rodney McCray's contracts expiring at the end of the season, Sampson wondered why the Rockets instead extended center Akeem Olajuwon's contract with three years remaining "That (signing Olajuwon) kind of showed me something," Sampson said.

Kelvin Sampson wants to restore his reputation and continue his career, and hopes he took a step in that direction by accepting a job as an assistant coach with the Milwaukee Bucks.

Four days before his team's World Cup opener, U.S. Coach Steve Sampson ripped into his German counterpart for not respecting the Americans. "When Berti Vogts walks out 20 minutes before the end of the Belgium match, that shows a lack of respect for the United States team," Sampson said Thursday. "In Europe, they have no respect for the United States. Frankly, we haven't earned it." Sampson, who was referring to the Americans' 2-0 loss at Brussels on Feb.

The to-do list got a little shorter when the Clippers' power forward Wednesday crossed off the biggest item yet, officially winning the NBA's rookie-of-the-year award. Griffin received 118 first-place votes, becoming the first unanimous winner since David Robinson in 1990. Now, where to put all the hardware?

A decade ago, every column I wrote about foster care yielded a torrent of phone calls, letters and messages from parents and social workers, carrying tales of heartless treatment, mindless judgments, unfair and unbending regulations. The torrent slowed to a trickle over the years -- a sign of more enlightened leadership and fewer children in foster care? Not if you listen to Candie Sampson, who wrote in response to my Saturday column on cuts to the county's child advocate system.

The NCAA on Tuesday rejected an appeal from former Indiana basketball coach Kelvin Sampson, who was slapped with five years of potential penalties for taking part in more than 100 impermissible calls to recruits while coaching the Hoosiers. The NCAA said it upheld the violations found in the case, which prompted an overhaul at the program and led to Sampson's departure after 1 1/2 years. An NCAA spokeswoman said Sampson has used his only appeal, and the case is closed.

You can complain all you want about the Dodgers offense, and rightfully so. But there won't be much to play for this summer until the starting five gets used to going more than five. The Dodgers' starting pitchers have thrown the fewest innings of any major league team this season, an enormous problem for a club that fancies itself a contender. Chad Billingsley took his turn Saturday, briefly.

Ralph Sampson reports to Arco Arena every day with the same hope. "I've just been waiting," the Sacramento Kings' center said. "Every day I come in here and hope (player personnel director) Jerry Reynolds will come up to me and say, 'We traded you somewhere.' I just wish that could happen." Sampson, 30, says his desire to leave the Kings has nothing to do with ill feelings toward the team or the city of Sacramento. He just wants to play and sees little chance of that happening with the Kings.
