Allan Bristow, fired at season's end as coach of the Charlotte Hornets, will interview shortly for the general manager's job with the 76ers. According to a highly placed source with the Sixers, Bristow will be the sixth and final general manager applicant to be interviewed before the process goes into a second round. John Nash, who resigned unexpectedly yesterday as general manager of the Washington Bullets, apparently will not be a candidate. Bristow, 44, coached the Hornets for five seasons and took them to a franchise best second-place finish in the Central Division in 1995.

John Nash, the former general manager of the 76ers and the Washington Bullets, has emerged as a candidate to succeed the retiring Norm Sonju with the Dallas Mavericks. Nash, who recently left the Bullets, is scheduled to meet today and tomorrow with new Mavericks owners Ross Perot Jr. and Frank Zaccanelli. Zaccanelli has been serving as the acting team president and general manager, leading the search for both a new general manager and a new coach to succeed Dick Motta. "I'm excited, in that it's a good organization with good young players who failed to play at the level they could have," Nash said.

John Nash this morning officially resigned as general manager of the Sixers, a post he's held for the past four years. His plans, however, were left hanging. "It's become official what I had planned to do . . .," said Nash at a press conference. "I don't think anybody should read anything into it, other than that it's a time for John Nash to see what's over the next hill. " One thing that might be over Nash's hill is the Denver Nuggets. He is a serious candidate to be the club's director of basketball operations.

After weeks of trying to arrange a date this season to retire Wilt Chamberlain's No. 13, the 76ers said yesterday that they would do so early next season. Chamberlain, who played for the Sixers from midway through the 1964-65 season until 1968-69 and is the second all-time NBA scorer with 31,419 points, has agreed to attend, 76ers general manager John Nash said in a prepared statement. "Despite the fact that both Wilt . . . and the 76ers have attempted to identify a date that works for everyone, it appears that the event will not take place this season," the statement said.

Blaming himself for forgetting that John Nash's contract expired after this season, Sixers owner Harold Katz said last night that he had given Nash every opportunity to return as general manager and believed that he would. "I'll be honest with you, I screwed up," Katz said at the Spectrum before Game 3 of the Eastern Conference semifinal series between the Sixers and Chicago Bulls. "I thought all of our basketball people's contracts expired next year. I took for granted John's was, too. . . . I've been more than satisfied with John, and John knows that.

The 76ers had a party last night. A media bash. It began in the Spectrum press room, where owner Harold Katz held a pregame news conference to go over the details of general manager John Nash's resignation the day before, effective the end of the playoffs. It eventually moved to the court, where the Sixers built a 27-point first- half lead, then held on to defeat the Chicago Bulls, climbing to 1-2 in their best-of-seven second-round NBA playoff series. Katz, though, fired the first shots.

Since being relieved as the coach of the then-Washington Bullets after 46 games of the 1996-97 season, Jim Lynam has always said he isn't sure whether he wants to get back into coaching. He still isn't sure, but neither did he hesitate to help New Jersey interim coach Don Casey and Nets general manager John Nash, two close friends. Lynam, the former coach, assistant coach and general manager of the 76ers, and former Sacramento Kings coach Eddie Jordan are expected to join Casey tonight as assistants with the New Jersey Nets.

Pat Williams says that Harold Katz needs John Nash, that it is in the best interests of the 76ers to retain their general manager. "Harold knows that, the basketball world knows that," said Williams, the former Sixers general manager and now the vice president and general manager of the Orlando Magic. Nash, who succeeded Williams in 1986, resigned May 7, effective at the conclusion of the NBA playoffs, but asked for "time to clear his head" after Katz, the team's owner, made what amounted to a public plea for him to stay.

It became evident early in the career of John Nash, who is expected to become the new general manager of the 76ers, that he had a little P. T. Barnum in him. At least, it became evident to his mother. And uncomfortably so. Rosemary Nash remembers vividly the first promotional venture in which her son became involved. There was a touch of illegality to it. John Nash was an undergraduate at St. Joseph's University when alumni contributions were slumping badly. So Nash went out and signed a contract with Peter, Paul and Mary, the popular singing group, for one of the school's functions.

After nine years with the team, general manager John Nash formally divorced himself from the 76ers yesterday, clearing the way for new suitors to win his hand. Before leaving for Chicago and the NBA's pre-draft camp, which may be his last official function for the Sixers, Nash cleaned off his desk with a farewell news conference at the Airport Hilton. "I think I've accomplished as much as I'm going to (with the Sixers)," Nash said. "The routine became very demanding, very taxing.

As a teenager with only a few teaching classes to his credit, John N. Nash walked into a one-room schoolhouse in western Kansas in the late 1930s. His learning curve was steep. Mr. Nash "managed to teach all subjects in all grades to students from first through eighth grade," said one of his sons, Francis. "He reported later in life that he learned from his mother," who also had taught in a one-room school, "to involve the older students in teaching the younger ones. " In other places and other years, teaching got easier.

Maurice Cheeks didn't hide his enthusiasm for the chance to interview for the 76ers' head coaching job two years ago. That was after Larry Brown had resigned, shortly after the 76ers were eliminated in the second round of the NBA playoffs by the Detroit Pistons. Brown became the Pistons' head coach the next week. Cheeks had just completed his second season as head coach of the Portland Trail Blazers in 2003 and was under contract for one year and a team option for another season.

Every basketball game has a rhythm, a beat, if you will, a rap. In the 11-26 season the 76ers are enduring, it is mostly bad vibes. You've heard these lyrics before: The Sixers play hard for three quarters- plus, place themselves in a position to win, then discover new and exciting ways of failing. They are, sadly, among the best in the NBA at doing exactly that. They did it one more excruciating time in last night's 102-98 loss to the Washington Bullets, and have fallen to 1-15 in games in which they've allowed 100 points or more.

The guy is nearly 7-7 and is averaging 11 points and seven rebounds through the first two games of the season. He doesn't run all that well, but he's becoming a competent, consistent shot-maker. For 21 minutes a night, he gives you what he has. Kind of makes you a little wistful, doesn't it? The player is Gheorghe Muresan, the backup center for the Washington Bullets, who face the 0-3 76ers tonight at the CoreStates Spectrum. By contrast, the Sixers' 7-6 Shawn Bradley is averaging 2.7 points and 2.7 rebounds in 16.7 minutes through three games.
