Antawn Jamison is back in the Washington Wizards fold. Now it's time to focus on Gilbert Arenas. The Wizards achieved a major free-agency goal yesterday when two-time All-Star forward Jamison signed a 4-year, $50 million contract. Arenas has said he would not return unless the team also kept his longtime friend. "He said he'd take less money if they got me, and they got me," Jamison told the Associated Press. "So I think everything will get worked out with Gilbert. " Two words describe Jamison above all others: steady and reliable.

The Celtics wrapped up their first division title since 1991-92 when the Sixers lost to New Jersey just minutes before Boston finished off the Raptors.

NEW YORK - When NBA commissioner David Stern announced the forgone conclusion of John Wall as the No. 1 pick to the Washington Wizards, putting on the cap was more than a rite of passage. It symbolized how far Wall has come. It might be hard to believe, but the 6-4 dynamo of a guard was an afterthought only a few years ago. As a sophomore, he was cut from his Broughton High School team in North Carolina - just like Michael Jordan - because of attitude problems. Getting cut is far in his rearview mirror.

The tribute began long before tipoff and didn't end even after the final horn. It was emotional, comedic, slightly over-the-top. And straight from the heart. Zydrunas Ilgauskas will never forget it. "It was something I'll remember for a long time," Ilgauskas said. "It's probably one of my favorite experiences as a Cavalier. " Cleveland welcomed back its adored center yesterday, honoring the big man best known as "Z" throughout the Cavaliers' 97-90 win over the undermanned Sacramento Kings.

LeBron James watched a group of reporters converge on Antawn Jamison in the locker room and yelled to his new teammate. "Don't worry about that," a smiling James said, mixing in a few expletives. "You're home. They still love you. " Jamison burst out laughing. He had just gone 0-for-12 from the field in his debut with Cleveland in his hometown of Charlotte last night in the Cavaliers' 110-93 loss to the Bobcats. "It was just one of those nights," Jamison said. "It won't happen again.

Straight-faced and subdued, Washington Wizards star Gilbert Arenas yesterday pleaded guilty to a felony gun charge connected to a locker-room argument, leaving his All-Star career in limbo and his freedom in doubt. Arenas won't know whether he must serve jail time until his March 26 sentencing and remains free until then. The government indicated it will not seek more than 6 months, although the judge can give Arenas anywhere from probation to the maximum term of 5 years. Arenas did not speak to reporters on the way into D.C. Superior Court, shaking his head when asked if he wanted to tell fans anything, or when he walked down the block to police headquarters after his 20-minute hearing.

They do things a little differently in Memphis. Last night, the Grizzlies caught fire, but only after a water-line break in the fire sprinkler system. The visiting Los Angeles Clippers once led by 18 and held a double-digit lead through most of the second and third quarters. But following a 36-minute delay caused by the water problem, the Grizzlies outscored the Clippers by 27-13 the rest of the way and finished with a 104-102 victory. "It was a little bit of adversity, something a little different," Grizzlies guard O.J. Mayo said.

Johnson made it two straight 30-point games, Smith dominated during a decisive first-half run and the Hawks won their sixth in the row, beating Miami 105-90 to reclaim a share of the NBA's best record with Phoenix. "It's just beautiful basketball right now," Smith said. Johnson scored 30 points on the heels of a 35-point effort against Portland on Monday.

The 76ers would never be this forgiving during the regular season. Last night, on what should have been a no-call, a replacement referee blew his whistle with three-tenths of a seconds remaining. Afterward, the Sixers chalked it up to preseason rust - theirs as well as the referee's. Washington Wizards guard Mike James, the beneficiary of the end-of-game gift, made a couple of free throws to give his team a surprising 90-89 exhibition victory at the Wachovia Center. The game appeared to be decided when, with exactly one tick on the clock, reserve guard Willie Green made 1 of 2 free throws, giving the Sixers an 89-88 lead.
