She is cradling her belly, which carries her unborn child, as she poses for this cover of a magazine aimed at readers who expect to see LeBron or Manny. But on the cover of the issue of ESPN the Magazine that will be on newsstands Friday it is Parker, the Sparks star, who will look the buyer in the eye beside the headline, "How Big Can Candace Parker Get?"

What: Sport Magazine's "new look" Price: $3.50. It can be a sad sight, watching a venerable sporting publication grapple with the throes of midlife crisis. What to call this latest redesign of Sport Magazine, born in 1946 and made over more than a half-dozen times since? How about "51 Going On 15"?

In American sports, a phone call from the president is a sign of achievement, as big a championship tradition as popping open champagne bottles. In Argentina, it's a signal to run for cover. According to Total Sport magazine, Argentine President Carlos Menem is considered such a bad-luck charm in his country that he has been banned from watching the national soccer team in person. The team called for the ban after going into a tailspin immediately after meeting Menem. Gabriela Sabatini was No.

What were the odds on this? You can bet that the people at Sport magazine are just a bit upset, not to mention red-faced, at the juxtaposition of two stories in its April issue. On Pages 54-56 is a feature entitled, "Pete Rose Can't Lose." The story describes how Rose's career was a "demonstration of excellence and desire" . . . and how, as the Reds' manager, he is trying to instill that spirit into his players. On Page 57 is a story on sports gambling. Rose was not mentioned in this piece.

The last 40 years have brought great upheaval and change in our society. In that period, the world of sports has been drawn inseparably into the fabric of the real world. Determining whether life is imitating sports, or the other way around, is like asking whether the horse is pulling the cart or whether the cart is really pushing the horse.

Jack Johnson, addicted to attention and craving a colorful legacy, loved to chronicle his rise from a restless Texas teen to the world's first black heavyweight boxing champion. Now, nearly a century after his most famous bout -- the 1910 defeat of "Great White Hope" Jim Jeffries -- and decades after his death, Johnson has more tales to tell.

AOL Time Warner said it would stop publishing Sports Illustrated Women to cut costs at its Time Inc. unit. With a circulation of 400,000 after 34 issues, the spinoff of the company's 48-year-old Sports Illustrated magazine will end with the December issue. The company announcement follows news this month that the world's largest magazine publisher would stop publishing its Mutual Funds magazine. Both closings are casualties of the depressed market for advertising.

Two years ago, sports magazines for women looked like one of the liveliest categories in publishing. Time Inc. put out two test issues of Sports Illustrated Women / Sport, a spinoff of the mighty Sports Illustrated, and Conde Nast Publications Inc. introduced Conde Nast Sports for Women. Here in 1999, however, the future of the category is still taking shape. Expectations in the case of Time Inc. appear more modest than they originally were as the publishing giant rethinks its approach.
