The 76ers are a good basketball team. Don't touch that dial. Don't reach for the contrast or the vertical hold. There's nothing wrong with the picture. It's true. The 76ers are a good basketball team. The thought would have been ludicrous just three weeks ago, after the Sixers walked off the court losers in 15 of their first 20 games. But starting with a stunning victory at Chicago Stadium, the Sixers have begun to rebuild the pieces of a season that seemed shattered.

Since when have criminals been kept out of the White House? Despite Mavericks guard Delonte West's comments that he was "banned" from the celebration of last season's NBA champions with President Obama on Monday, he wasn't, according to the Secret Service. The former St. Joseph's star did not attend the event in the East Room. West pleaded guilty to weapons possession charges after police discovered a small arsenal inside a guitar case he was riding around with on a three-wheeler in 2009.

The Chicago Bulls want another NBA title. The Miami Heat just want to win a game. The visiting Bulls made all the right moves down the stretch last night and beat Miami, 96-90, for their ninth consecutive victory. The three-time defending NBA champions now trail Atlanta by one-half game in the race for the No. 1 seed in the Eastern Conference playoffs. The Heat, meanwhile, have lost three straight and 10 of their last 12. Last night's loss knocked them into eighth place in the race for the eight Eastern playoff berths.

Judging from his quotes, Frank Layden might be an even bigger Lakers fan than Jack Nicholson. The Lakers and the team Layden coaches, the Utah Jazz, play the second game of their Western Conference playoff series tonight at the Forum in Inglewood, Calif. That's where the defending NBA champions routed Utah, 110-91, Sunday and held the Jazz to an embarrassing eight points in the first quarter. "I don't think we can beat the Lakers," Layden said. "If we could do that, I think I'm wasting my time.

The Los Angeles Lakers routed the Chicago Bulls, 90-81, at home to improve to 33-31. It marks the first time this season they have been two games over .500. The Lakers also moved a half-game ahead of the Utah Jazz and into sole possession of the No. 8 playoff spot in the Western Conference. The win was a team effort for the hosts: Dwight Howard had 16 points and 21 rebounds; Kobe Bryant finished 19 points, 9 assists, and 7 rebounds; and Steve Nash chipped in 16 points. They led by as many as 18 points in the third period.

Brutal beatings of blacks by police were as common as the cold. Blood and anger seemed to be everywhere. It was a time when this city had native son Wilt Chamberlain as its star and the 76ers as newly crowned NBA champions, but in the mind of Wali Jones, sports and everything else took a backseat to the civil rights movement, the Philadelphia riots, the assassination of the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., and other symbols of the turbulent 1960s....

Danny Ainge has gone from a winner to a loser. From a team that is knee- deep in tradition and championship banners to one that has won just 53 games over the last two years. He has moved closer to his family, but further away from the playoffs. And yesterday, six days after his trade from the Boston Celtics to the Sacramento Kings, he still didn't know whether to be happy or sad, thankful or mad. "I guess I'm still kind of numb," said the 29-year-old guard. "I don't know exactly what I'm feeling right now. I'm still trying to figure it out; sort out my emotions.

The man with the multicolored hair hasn't re-signed with the Chicago Bulls yet. Dennis Rodman has agreed to terms on a one-year contract but didn't finish taking his physical examination yesterday because of bronchitis and a touch of pneumonia, general manager Jerry Krause said. Rodman returned to California and will not accompany the defending NBA champions to Paris for next week's McDonald's Championship. The Bulls already are without All-Star forward Scottie Pippen, who underwent foot surgery Monday and will miss up to three months.

Looking for a reason not to pick the Miami Heat to win another NBA title? Don't check the odds, where the Heat are such an overwhelming favorite that it might as well be Tiger Woods against a weekend hacker. Definitely don't bother with the Heat's results, which show exactly three losses since the start of February. And certainly don't look on the court, where LeBron James sent season-long reminders that he's better than ever and already the best in the world. The only people who might really believe in caution are the Heat themselves.

Now it's on to Boston to face the rival Celtics - the team that ended the last streak this long. The Heat equaled the second-longest winning streak in NBA history, pulling away in the fourth quarter Sunday in Toronto to beat the Raptors, 108-91, for their 22nd consecutive victory. "It's a special ride right now that we're on," LeBron James said. "The best thing about it is we're doing it together.

  MIAMI - A week ago, they were leading the NBA Finals. And now, the Oklahoma City Thunder are home for the summer, ruminating over lessons doled out by the Miami Heat.

Favorites coming into the series, the Thunder fell in Game 5 of the finals Thursday night, as Miami finished off its run to a championship by beating Oklahoma City, 121-106.
