When Vernon E. Jordan Jr. stood before microphones and cameras in a hotel ballroom last week and quoted the biblical admonition, "To whom much is given, much is required," some members of the vast Washington legal community chuckled and rolled their eyes. It seemed an unlikely explanation for why Jordan, power broker supreme and Clinton friend without peer, admitted to having helped a 24-year-old intern find a job. Not only because the former civil rights leader has been criticized by at least one prominent black leader for trading his previous career - and his principles - for a life of privilege.

Marple Township Commissioner Robert Jordan had gone to court expecting to face a jury of his peers on charges stemming from an altercation in the township building Jan. 15. Instead, the charges were dropped, apparently ending what Jordan's attorney, John M. Gallagher Jr., described as "this whole little mess. " Patricia Keates, president of the Marple Board of Commissioners, along with her husband, Robert, and library board member Maureen Muehsam dropped complaints charging Jordan with simple assault and terroristic threats just as Jordan's trial was scheduled to begin Monday in Delaware County Court, Media.

After Michael Jordan announced his comeback yesterday, the world of television shifted into overdrive. NBC, the NBA's primary network, immediately began to make changes to today's edition of The NBA on NBC to capitalize on the return of the man many call the greatest player to ever step on a basketball court. Ironically, NBC already had the game between the Chicago Bulls and the Indiana Pacers scheduled for noon today before Jordan made his decision to return to the Bulls.

When Michael Jordan walks away from basketball, at the end of this season or whenever, exactly what does the NBA lose? Its best player. Sellouts. TV ratings. Income. Charisma. All of the above. "We'd lose the only household name in basketball," said the Sixers' Scott Williams, who spent the first four seasons of his career as a teammate of Jordan with the Chicago Bulls. "People who don't know anything about basketball know him. " People who don't know anything else about the league know that Jordan, a free agent-to-be, has said he will return to the Bulls only under certain circumstances.

When Penncrest's Josh Jordan sets his mind on accomplishing something, it is a pretty good bet the cross-country runner is going to get the job done. At the Delaware County Championships at Rose Tree Park in Media, the junior kept repeating a simple, but powerful, message. "When I got there, I looked at everyone else and I said to myself 'I came here to win,' and I just kept repeating that to myself. " And win he did, posting a time of 16 minutes, 2 seconds, his best of the year and 30 seconds faster than his finish a year ago. "Josh just had it that day," Penncrest coach John Baker said.

The Chicago Bulls' Michael Jordan capped a season of honors yesterday by capturing the NBA's most valuable player award. He became the first player to win MVP and defensive player of the year honors the same season. But Jordan still has not reached his primary goal - bringing the NBA championship to Chicago. Jordan, who averaged 35.0 points per game to lead the league in scoring for the second consecutive season, was golfing in the Carolinas and could not even be reached by his own team to be congratulated, Krause said.

Only Michael Jordan, and only in Cleveland. Jordan did it to the Cavaliers and their fans again, hitting an 18-foot jumper at the buzzer last night to give the Washington Wizards a 93-92 win. Jordan victimized Cleveland throughout his career with the Chicago Bulls, and although he's now wearing a Washington jersey, No. 23 still has the Cavs' number. "Everybody in the place knew where the ball was going," Jordan said. "I've had some big shots in Cleveland, and they keep going in. " With 1.6 seconds left and Washington down, 92-91, Jordan got free on a defensive switch and calmly drained his jumper for the Wizards, who trailed by 12 points in the fourth quarter.

If Michael Jordan hits a home run and it's not on video, did it happen? The Birmingham Barons outfielder, whose career highlights so far have been filmed inside NBA arenas, hopes to find a videotape of his first professional home run. Jordan's homer at Hoover (Ala.) Stadium on Saturday came so late in the evening that local television photographers had already packed up. "It was the bottom of the eighth and a late night," said team spokesman Chris Pika. "We would like to have a copy of it, and I think Michael would, too. " So the Barons are trying to get the word out to anyone in the record crowd of 13,751 who might have had a camera running when Jordan hit his homer.

With Michael Jordan back in the Big Apple, this NBA labor talk thing was perceived to be growing serious. Perceptions, of course, have been known to disappoint. David Falk, agent of His Airness, did say Jordan wouldn't become involved again until he thought discussions aimed at breaking the five-month-old NBA labor stalemate reached a more serious stage. Jordan's silky touch didn't seem to have much effect yesterday, with no new proposals offered in meetings between league and union officials in New York that didn't end until nearly midnight.

When he heard the news that John Kruk had been signed for three years at $7.2 million, he had mixed feelings - understandably so. Basically, he was happy for his teammate. But he wasn't so happy for himself. As Ricky Jordan put it yesterday, "(Kruk) is a good player, and he deserves what he got. As you know, the guy can play some first base. People talk about Andres Galarraga and Will Clark, but I think he's one of the top three. He can hit and play defense. It's no surprise that they wanted to sign him. " But Jordan knows what this means for him: another season in limbo.

I ALMOST bumbled it in a column last week - the identity of that tall, handsome, stationary, brown fella outside the Prince Music Theater on Chestnut Street near Broad. In a Twitter poll I did yesterday, I asked some DN gossip followers to answer this question to the best of their knowledge: Just who is that lanky bronze man who is clearly attempting to either a) hail you a cab or b) shield you from the rain and open the door of the theater for you? The answer may surprise you. It did, me. And not one responder to my poll got it right, either.

La Salle coach John Giannini wanted a specific answer from his senior center, and that is what he got. During an interview last week after a victory over Duquesne, Giannini - who actually was being interviewed at the time - asked Jerrell Wright, "Who's the most important person in our program, Jerrell?" Without hesitation, Wright, second on the team in scoring and rebounding, had an answer. "The newcomers," Wright said. "The people that are new here - freshmen and transfers . . . When they get here, our job is to make them comfortable.

Cananchet Jordan is a good son. Not only does the 5-foot-11 senior guard for Imhotep Charter take care of his mother when she feels ill, he also explicitly follows her basketball instructions. Nicole Sample, who Jordan says battles leukemia, does not ask for much at home. But she does make the occasional hoops request. "I really love my mom," said Jordan after Imhotep's 64-51 win on Thursday against visiting Del-Val Charter. "I love to take care of her and do anything she asks me to do. We joke around a lot. She always texts me and tells me to put up a three for her because that's her favorite number.

Coming off its first loss of the season, Villanova knows that St. John's will be a hungry opponent Tuesday night at Madison Square Garden after its 0-2 start in the Big East.

BEFORE THE SWOOSH came into his life, Michael Jordan wore Converse. Yesterday a powder-blue pair of leather hightops that he wore at North Carolina sold at auction for $33,387. ESPN.com reported that the sneaks - inscribed "Best Wishes, Michael Jordan" - were consigned to Grey Flannel Auctions by a high school teammate of Jordan's. The winning bidder, who chose to remain anonymous, purchased a nice piece of history. But they are far less valuable that some other Jordan memorabilia.

When they hear the word adoption, people often think of babies. However, the majority of children in need of permanent homes are school-age, and many are teenagers. Among them is Jordan. At 15, he is handsome, attentive, and well-mannered, and takes pride in his appearance. He also excels in sports, enjoys playing basketball with friends, and gets a kick out of testing his skills at video games. Jordan's favorite foods are hamburgers, french fries, spaghetti with meatballs, rice and beans, and salads.

In his first NFL preseason game, Jordan Matthews dropped two passes - three, if you're a tough critic. In the Eagles rookie's second regular-season game, he dropped two passes - three, again, if you're perfectionist. It's a small sample of professional games for the wide receiver, but Matthews has had a case of the dropsies before. The Web site Rotoworld charted the college plays for the top receivers in this year's draft and Matthews had a 7.69 percent drop rate on passes that were defined as easily catchable.
