Vlade Divac shrugs and says he is not politically inclined. Either that, or the Lakers' rookie center simply chooses not to go on the record about the upheaval in his native Yugoslavia. Divac said he is aware of his country's recent decision to switch to a multiparty political system after 45 years of Communist rule.

It was Milt Grant's Texas deal that cinched his reputation. He bought two struggling television stations in Dallas and Houston, spent fearlessly on programming to pump up their ratings and revenue, and in two years sold them for a $176-million profit on a $12-million investment. It was a feat of alchemy that lured scores more entrepreneurs to the independent, or non-affiliated, television industry.
