When company comes to visit, Kareem, 10, meets people at the door. "Hi," he'll greet them, "my name is Kareem. " And to any children, he'll ask, "Do you want to play?" His foster mother says he's friendly, sensitive and generous, and adds, "Every time you turn around, he's singing. His favorites are 'Jesus Loves Me' and 'I'm Glad to Be in the Service.' " There is a history of neglect and abuse in Kareem's life, and he receives therapy for feelings of loss and rejection. Testing shows an average to slightly below-average IQ, and Kareem attends special-education classes on a first-grade level.

With Christmas two days away, it's a perfect time to highlight fellows named Pilgrim. Oops, wrong holiday. A story about the Pilgrims, fraternal twins Kareem and Khalif, would have been a perfect fit on Thanksgiving, of course, but their school, Robert Lamberton High, does not offer football. In many years, a wise guy could say, Lamberton has barely offered basketball, seeing how the Blue Devils often have experienced profound struggles on the court. This year? Glad you asked.

Kareem, 3, is a comical sight when he plays "church" at home. He likes to pretend he's the song leader. He'll get an imaginary pitch pipe out of his pocket, wave his arms, and do a rendition of "Rock of Ages. " There's a 5-year-old girl in his foster home, and together they take her dolls to the doctor (located in the next room), do 25-piece puzzles, string beads, play with clay, color, and lace string through cards. Kareem, who attends a Head Start program, is attaining age-appropriate developmental milestones.

When Kareem "Rab" Townes signed a scholarship agreement with La Salle University's basketball program during a press conference yesterday, he did so with confidence. Townes, the 6-3 superguard from Southern High, did not have to fret about being shunned in the upcoming months. True, the league to which La Salle belongs, the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference, has a rule limiting each school's entire athletic program to two Proposition 48 athletes. True, senior-to-be guard Randy Woods, of Ben Franklin, entered La Salle as a Prop 48 casualty in September 1988.

Pat Riley objectively says the Los Angeles' Lakers' cycle of success - four championships in the '80s - is reaching completion. And the Lakers' coach does not want to waste a single precious moment of it. That is why, when the Lakers' won the 1986-87 championship, he immediately "guaranteed" that they would repeat, thus accomplishing something no other team has done in 18 years. "As soon as we won last season, I knew I'd be asked, and I didn't want to make the same qualifying statements every other coach had made," Riley said before the Lakers ripped the 76ers, 131-115, last night.

In addition to incorporating more than half a new roster, 76ers coach Doug Collins is trying to establish an identity with this season's team. Depending on the health of Andrew Bynum, the Sixers basically have two systems, but both will overlap. Without Bynum, the Sixers are more of a freewheeling transition team. Even with Bynum, the Sixers won't abandon the running game but will have an envied secondary option, the post-up half-court game. Bynum remains out on right knee rehab, and the target date for him to return is Wednesday.

Rob Carter's basketball activity at Roxborough High has been limited thus far to intramurals, but if coach Bob Correnty needs a sharpshooting guard . . . Saturday, with 0:00 showing on the clock, Carter, a 5-10, 160-pound senior running back, nailed The Jump Shot Heard 'Round Roxborough as the Indians' football team stunned visiting Catholic League finalist-to-be Roman Catholic, 6-0. Jump shot? That was the winning play - a "44 iso jump shot. " With the ball on the 1, and Roxborough in its customary wishbone formation, Carter plowed toward the hole between the right guard and tackle, stopped short in the backfield, jumped high and floated a scoring pass to all-alone tight end Maurice Clark, who had moved from left to center after stepping into the end zone.

KAREEM ROUSTOM is bilingual in Arabic and English - music, that is. The Syrian-born composer is fluent in Arabic and Western styles, which is no easy feat. The two use very different instruments. And Arabic music has quarter tones, which exist between the notes of the traditional Western 12-tone chromatic scale. With so many different types of sounds and rules to keep in mind, composing in both requires considerable musical dexterity. Roustom, who moved to the United States when he was in 7th grade, started on the guitar.

Kareem Savage's criminal career peaked in the summer of 2008 with three dead and four wounded.

The life terms for killing Mack, 42, and Hankins, 19, were mandatory with no chance of parole. But Philadelphia Common Pleas Court Judge Steven R. Geroff rejected a defense request to make the sentences concurrent.

Ty Belford saw something special more than a decade ago, and Sunday he will see something he has never seen before. What the former head football coach at Willingboro High School saw in the mid-'90s was a future NFL player - even before Kareem McKenzie had played a single down. That doesn't make Belford Nostradamus, because McKenzie, even as a 15-year-old, was slightly larger than the state of Texas. Size, of course, does matter when your future employment is as an NFL offensive tackle, but you have to be more than big to make it in the big time.
