With a little juke and a fast first step, Shaun Livingston was gone. His defender was left at the three-point line while Livingston zoomed down a wide-open lane for a right-handed throwdown. For some players, it would have been just another dunk in a season filled with them. For Livingston, it was a giant leap forward in his bid to resurrect an NBA career that was nearly cut short when he was 21. Not only did Livingston launch himself into the air by pushing off with the same left knee that disintegrated in a gruesome and freakish play two years ago. He also returned to the hardwood with his legs still supporting him. And the best news of all: He didn't feel the slightest bit of pain.

PLAYOFF-BOUND 1. Miami 2012-13 finish: 66-16. Coming: Michael Beasley, Greg Oden. Going: Mike Miller, Juwan Howard. The Heat propped up its three-peat hopes with two balky knees and a whiff of controversy. Oden has already encountered knee swelling in his bid to play for the first time since 2009, enshrouding his return in further doubt. 2. Indiana 2012-13 finish: 49-32. Coming: Luis Scola, Chris Copeland, C.J. Watson, Solomon Hill.

Will it play in Peoria? The famous question dates to vaudeville days, when producers tried out new shows on Peorians, believing their opinions to be reflective of mainstream America. If a production didn't work in Peoria, so the thinking was, it probably would have to be rewritten, recast or maybe even canceled. But if it played in Peoria, it could play anywhere.

You still here? Dangled two years ago by owner Donald T. Sterling ("Do you think anybody loves their coach? They're just a necessity") . . . a punching bag for ESPN's Bill Simmons ("In the post-Isiah era, is Mike Dunleavy the single most destructive coach/executive in the NBA right now?") . . . on life support after this season's 3-9 start. Look who's still here, coaching something resembling a team after years of coaching something resembling a discontented MASH unit. All it took was enough people to get well, and, in some cases, to get over it, and a contract that kept Sterling from pulling the plug in the meantime.

Heavens to Betsy! T.J. Simers has written something nice about someone, Shaun Livingston, the 19-year-old rising star of the Clippers [Nov. 9]. Simers is getting soft or he has forgotten his long journalistic practice of knocking or denigrating virtually everyone in sports. Let's hope Simers has the good sense to return to his normal Page 2 nasty, obnoxious Scrooge-like image. Joe Lyou Santa Paula

Can somebody please tell Vladimir Radmanovic that snowboarding isn't so easy that a caveman can do it? TODD KENASTON Monrovia So this is what we know so far about Vladimir Radmanovic: He's injury prone, dishonest, a space cadet and a below-average snowboarder. Oh, and he's also not a very valuable basketball player. This is what happens when you give $30 million to someone because he had one hot-shooting stretch with the Clippers in the playoffs. CONNOR HASTINGS Westwood The recipe for Lakers success: Take Vlad Radmanovic's $30-million deal and void it for snowboarding.

Shaun Livingston, still recovering from a devastating knee injury suffered in 2007, and Paul Davis will become unrestricted free agents today when the Clippers decline to extend them qualifying offers. "We are optimistic about Shaun's ultimate return, but under the circumstances, we think it would be best to continue to monitor his progress while determining how best to move forward on his long-term status," Clippers President Andy Roeser said.

The future isn't quite yet. Shaun Livingston, a 21-year-old who got the start on opening night, is back to backing up about-to-turn-37 Sam Cassell because ... he's Sam Cassell. "Shaun has the ability to be a star," Coach Mike Dunleavy said before Monday night's game against Portland, "but Sam is the guy we pencil in to be our starter. He's the guy who runs our show. We know Shaun is our future and he'll eventually replace him."

Clipper rookie Shaun Livingston, who turns 19 on Saturday, will have plenty of reason to celebrate. The first true point guard to jump directly from high school to the NBA, Livingston signed a three-year, $8.1-million contract Thursday. Picked fourth in the June draft, he was slotted into a deal that will pay him about $2.5 million this season, about $2.7 million next season and about $2.9 million in 2006-07. What's more, the Clippers aren't looking for immediate results.

He was standing, in civilian garb, in the Staples Center corridor outside the visitors' locker room. But even if Miami Heat point guard Shaun Livingston was inactive for Saturday night's game against his former Clippers teammates, simply seeing him back in his old haunt was one of those feel-good NBA moments. It had nothing to do with winning or losing. "It's great," Livingston said before the game. "Memories. Memories, just talking to guys, mostly the staff. You know, this is a new team.

They were sometimes side by side, other times crisscrossing from trainer's table to physical therapy and back again. One is playing. One is still rehabbing. But now Shaun Livingston is looking to Elton Brand's healthy return from a ruptured Achilles' tendon for motivation. "It's inspiring to me," Livingston said. "And it also sheds some light and hope on coming out and playing."

The frustration of a dismal season was evident in Chris Kaman's recent words and is now spreading. Two other veterans voiced similar concerns about the way the team is playing. Leading scorer Corey Maggette cited injuries to players beyond Elton Brand and Shaun Livingston as a deterrent, but said that the team should be playing better than its overall record reflects. "It's just tough right now," Maggette said. "We don't have a lot of guys playing the right way." In the Clippers' 37-point loss to the Lakers on Friday, point guard Dan Dickau made his first start of the season.

An examination of Shaun Livingston's surgically repaired knee revealed tendinitis, seriously jeopardizing his chances of returning to the court this season. Dr. James Andrews, who performed Livingston's surgery, recommended that he scale back his on-court activities for four weeks, but said that Livingston was expected to make a full recovery. "It's an obstacle," Livingston said. "It's not smooth. Then again, what was about this injury?

Typical Clippers. They have a chance to get Allen Iverson for Corey Maggette and Shaun Livingston, yet refuse, saying Livingston is "untouchable"? Iverson averaged 23.5 points, 7.5 assists, 4.1 rebounds in his first NBA season. In his third year, Livingston is having his best season at 8.2 points, 4.8 assists and 2.8 rebounds. In his career, Livingston has 1,035 points and 39 assists fewer than Iverson did in his first season. Iverson is a perennial All-Star who would give the Clippers a chance at a championship, steal headlines from the Lakers and sell jerseys and tickets.

Shaun Livingston, sidelined since suffering a dislocated right kneecap in late November, should be cleared to resume his rookie season Sunday at Toronto after passing strength and agility tests today. "I haven't really noticed anything from the standpoint of him being tentative," Coach Mike Dunleavy said of Livingston's performance in practice this week. "He hasn't lost any quickness or explosion.... "I asked him about it, and he said, 'I'm ready to go.'

They are still recovering and still hoping. Elton Brand and Shaun Livingston each recently said they still plan to return to the Clippers this season from serious injuries even though the team is running short on games and heavy on losses. Brand, healing from a ruptured Achilles' tendon, has started light contact drills and bumping bodies in the post. He began traveling with the team and is targeting to resume full practices within a couple of weeks.
