The Clippers got their first look at the leaning tower of Philadelphia, 7-foot-6 rookie Shawn Bradley, and got dizzy. Bradley blocked five of their shots and they missed a lot of the others before breaking open a tied game in the fourth quarter and beating the 76ers, 96-86, Monday night in the Sports Arena. "I think we had a lot of trouble adjusting to Bradley," Coach Bob Weiss said. "He took away all our stuff going to the basket. We had guys going down the lane throwing the ball up in the air."

THE SPORTING CLUB IS PHILADELPHIA'S high-swagger health spa, the place where corporate honchos, political shakers and glitterati deign to perspire on the latest in exercisiana. These are not folks to be cowed by celebrity, especially during an intense bout with a computerized rowing machine or StairMaster. But one late-summer noontime, the sweaty strokes and high-stepping stopped for a moment, and normally jaded mouths gaped a bit.

Rick Majerus, coach at the University of Utah, has a warning for the 11 teams in today's NBA draft lottery: "The biggest mistake since not drafting Michael Jordan would be passing on Shawn Bradley." The 7-foot-6 Bradley, who set the NCAA freshman shot-blocking record for Brigham Young two years ago, then went on a Mormon mission to Australia. Rather than return to school for another year or two of developing his game, Bradley chose to play in the NBA.

Shawn Bradley, a 7-foot-6 center who set an NCAA shot-blocking record as a freshman at Brigham Young, has decided to make himself available for this year's NBA draft. The 21-year-old from Castle Dale, Utah, will return in early June from a two-year mission in Sydney, Australia, for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Bradley repeatedly had said he would return to the Mormon Church-owned school to play at least his sophomore season.

The Miami Heat's fourth consecutive victory and a rare post All-Star break loss by the New Jersey Nets were overshadowed by a brawl Tuesday night--between Alonzo Mourning and Shawn Bradley. Mourning and Bradley went arm-to-arm, nose-to-nose and something-to-chin as the Heat defeated the Nets, 93-90, at East Rutherford, N.J., in a game that ended with Bradley shoving Mourning to the floor near half court. "Things just happened," said Bradley, who outscored Mourning, 23-11.

He easily eclipsed his previous season high of 23 points and missed by one point of matching his career best.
