"It's kind of the same Arsenio you know," Hall joked while promoting his upcoming late-night talker, "The Arsenio Hall Show," Monday at the Television Critics Assn. press tour.

And that's just the most visible part of his job "It's from A to Z what you do," Romanski says. "There's times where you're working on a helmet radio system for practice and then a couple of hours later you could be tailoring a pair of pants.

The pitch throughout UCLA's practice Monday was simple: When the Bruins get to Houston, they don't want to have a problem. Players knew training camp at Cal State San Bernardino was going to be hot.

In hopes that he won't feel constricted with the extra clothing, Lakers guard Ramon Sessions plans to play Sunday against Oklahoma City without a protective pad along his sprained left shoulder. "It feels better not having it on," Sessions said. "It irritates you a little bit, but it also protects you.

" Sessions said his sprained shoulder doesn't feel as sore as when the Lakers defeated the Clippers, 113-108, on April 4. He's also planning to keep the padding and additional undershirt handy in case the shoulder worsens against the Thunder.
