One night in the early fall of 1972 in the dank visitors' locker room at Boston Garden, brand-spanking-new Philadelphia 76er Coach Roy Rubin couldn't contain himself. His team had just knocked off the Celtics in an exhibition game and Rubin felt like, well, boasting. You know what it was? It was a victory for Philly cheese steak over New England clam chowder, and Rubin could just taste it. Gosh, Rubin hadn't been so excited since his coaching days at Long Island University.

It will be difficult to argue against anybody's selection for horse of the year in what has been a very strange 1999. Three of the best cases can be made for Kentucky Derby and Preakness winner Charismatic, Victory Gallop, even Breeders' Cup Sprint winner Artax, although some Californians can't forget his finishing seventh, seventh and fifth in his last three starts last winter at Santa Anita.

Magic Johnson's latest declaration that he's not coming back, an abrupt reversal of what he had told NBC only days before, caused few waves from observers who have heard him change his mind several times before. New York Daily News columnist Mark Kriegel plainly thinks Johnson has changed his mind a few times too many.

Advantage, Houston. . . . The Rockets will play the New York Knicks tonight at the Summit and home teams have won 11 of the 14 seventh games in the NBA finals. . . . Besides, the Rockets have the best player, Hakeem Olajuwon, and that gives them the slight edge over the team with the best coach, Pat Riley. . . . The first to score 90 should win. The highest total by a loser in the series has been 89 by New York in Game 3. . . .

When Jason Giambi was a baby, his dad put a toy bat in his crib. Later, the father installed a batting cage and a pitching machine in the backyard. John Giambi, a Mickey Mantle fan and onetime junior college catcher, tutored Jason on his swing -- just as Mantle was tutored by his father. Jason wore No. 7, Mantle's number. The elder Giambi intended to make his son a switch-hitter, like Mantle. But Jason, who batted left-handed, wouldn't go for it.
