Arthur "Yah" Davis, an exciting guard whose basketball days at St. Joseph's University took him from star to star-crossed, was hospitalized yesterday after experiencing a medical emergency. According to his agent, Glenn Schwartzman, Davis had "an adverse reaction to Excedrin. " He added, "But I won't know the full extent of what happened until [today], when the doctors give me the results of tests. " A spokeswoman at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania said last night that Davis was in fair condition in the intermediate medical intensive care unit.

The referees could be the latest group to feel the sting of the NBA lockout that has been in effect since July 1. The referees have no voice in the battle between the league and the National Basketball Players Association, but the consequences of the dispute seem to be creeping up on them. The league indefinitely postponed the refs' training camp, which was scheduled to open Sept. 25. The league also postponed the annual rookie transition program, which was penciled in for Sept.

The final step in ending the NBA lockout - approval by the club owners of a new six-year contract - could come as early as today. NBA deputy commissioner Russ Granik is hopeful that the owners will vote in a telephone conference call. "We will promptly submit the deal to the owners for ratification, and we hope to have their approval by (this) afternoon," Granik said Wednesday after the player representatives voted 25-2 to accept the deal. The reps' vote came one day after players voted 226-134 not to decertify the union.

What if they scheduled the NBA All-Star Game for Philadelphia and it didn't happen? "Sure, it's possible," Mayor Rendell said yesterday, understanding the storm clouds hovering over the unveiling of the primary and secondary logos for All-Star Weekend, scheduled Feb. 11 to 14 in the city. The league and the National Basketball Players Association face the expiration Tuesday night of the collective-bargaining agreement, which appears to be leading to the start of a lockout.

The words and phrases associated with the NBA's recent lockout suggested monumental stakes: nuclear winter , catastrophic damages , impasse , hard-line stances , and dissolution . The league's knowledgeable fans thought a new labor agreement could at least right some of the structural wrongs, to create a system where - as in the NFL - a small-market team such as the Charlotte Bobcats has as much chance of winning as...

If anybody is salivating over the NBA lockout, it is the Rage. For a team that finished a dismal 13-33 last season and couldn't fill the stands even before the departure of local star player Dawn Staley, what better news could there be for the American Basketball League franchise than that the 76ers won't be playing any time soon? "I'd like to think that people who love basketball want to see it played at the best level and that would be us," Rage coach Anne Donovan said. "We're hoping to draw some interest off of [the NBA lockout]

ALL OF A SUDDEN, the Wells Fargo Center has become an available venue. With the NBA canceling the first 2 weeks of the regular season over the lack of a collective bargaining agreement, with possibly more to follow, there will be some free time between Flyers home games and concerts there. Yesterday, Comcast-Spectacor president and chief operating officer Peter Luukko outlined what the building's future may hold. "We remain optimistic that we will have an NBA season," Luukko said in a statement.

If any of the NBA's 411 players - or 29 owners, for that matter - thought like Kyle Grasty, chances are there wouldn't be a lockout. Instead of bickering over how to split $2 billion and allowing the lockout to extend past five months, owners and players might settle for being thankful for what they have. They might even recall how it felt to be a healthy 15-year-old, full of energy and enthusiasm, looking forward to a long, happy life. Kyle Grasty is a heart-transplant recipient who has had health problems since age 1. He knows that no one involved in the NBA standoff is seeing things the way he is. "Of course they're not," he says.

NOW THAT the National Basketball Association owners and players have ended their lockout - and agreed how best to divvy up their millions in profits from sky-high ticket and concession prices - fans can breathe easy because the season can finally get under way. In announcing their settlement, representatives for the owners and players said there was an urgency to end the lockout because "others depend on us. " The "others" they were supposedly referring...

There was a time when Malik Rose was thought of as nothing more than a gym rat. At a mere 6-foot-7, he was hoping some team would appreciate his talents and jovial demeanor, and recognize the statistics he racked up as one of the nation's leading rebounders at Drexel. Then, he hoped, some team would give him a career as an NBA player. Now he's a two-year NBA veteran. More important, however, he is perceived as more than a youthful jock from a small institution begging for the chance to earn millions in front of millions.

The NHL appears headed toward a 48-game season for the second time in two decades. "I think 48 is most likely at this point, unless the players can expedite their ratification process," NHL deputy commissioner Bill Daly wrote in an e-mail Monday. The NHL shortened its 82-game slate to 48 games for the 1994-95 season after a 103-day lockout. A 301-day lockout in 2004-05 made the NHL the first major North American professional sports league to lose an entire season. When the framework of a new collective bargaining agreement was agreed to Sunday morning - after 16 hours of negotiations - there was some talk of having a 50-game season start later this month.

As expected, the NHL Players' Association voted overwhelmingly in favor of asking its executive board to file a "disclaimer of interest," a move that would enable it to disband the union and to file an antitrust lawsuit that claims the league's lockout is illegal. The players' executive board has until Jan. 2 to file the claim. Maybe it will be filed. Or maybe the vote, which ended Friday with players approving by 706-22, was just an attempt to back the NHL into a negotiating corner.

The NHL labor dispute took a new twist Friday as the league made a preemptive legal strike, trying to stop the players from dissolving their union. The league filed a class-action suit, asking a federal judge in New York to rule on the legality of the lockout, which reached its 90th day. The NHL also filed an unfair labor practice charge with the National Labor Relations Board. In a statement released Friday night, an NHLPA spokesman said "based on what we've learned so far, the NHL appears to be arguing the players should be stopped from even considering their right to decide whether or not to be represented by a union.

SYRACUSE, N.Y. - Starting Wednesday it will be Training Camp, Part 2, for the 76ers. Part 1 included the team holding about 10 practices, collectively finding their legs, familiarizing themselves with one another and somewhat getting ready for the preseason. That preseason, which heaved seven games in 12 days onto the team, ended Monday at the Carrier Dome with a 98-90 win over the New York Knicks and a 6-1 record. Now comes the favorite part of coaching for Doug Collins - getting in the gym with his team.

Several weeks before this season even started, Miami's LeBron James and Oklahoma City's Kevin Durant were competing against each other. Hell Week, they called it, a four-day series of grueling workouts. Starting Tuesday, they'll meet again. They'll call that the NBA Finals. Neither was playing at the level that they are now when James invited Durant to work out with him during the NBA lockout in his hometown of Akron, Ohio. Now as James tries to win his first ring, fittingly, Durant is in his way. "It's only right.

IT WAS like the Mayan calendar. The NBA knew exactly by what date it had to settle its differences with its players or face Armageddon for the 2011-12 season. That's why after weeks of no-contact between the two sides, a hastily called meeting in late November accomplished in 48 hours what couldn't be done in the previous 5 months. It wasn't a coincidence that the tentative agreement that effectively ended the NBA lockout was reached on Nov. 26, 2011. That left just enough time to get things in enough order to have the opening tipoff on Christmas Day. That timeline was the drop-dead date for resuscitation.

The professional team sports jersey in America is a holdout against advertising - how much longer will that last?

"It's more exploratory than - boom - we're flipping the switch," said NBA spokesman Michael Bass. "It's been a subject of ongoing conversation with our teams.

1. Who ya like? The opinions on college basketball's 2011-12 national player of the year seem to be narrowing toward two players - junior forward Thomas Robinson of Kansas and freshman center Anthony Davis of Kentucky. The 6-foot-9 Robinson is second in the nation in rebounding (11.9 per game) and in double-doubles (19) while averaging 17.4 points. The 6-10 Davis is not a pure scorer but gets notice with his defense, leading the nation in blocked shots (4.8). He also averages 9.8 rebounds and shoots 64.6 percent from the field.

IN MY Small opinion, former NBA star and budding TV analyst Shaquille O'Neal might have simply used the wrong word. After all, "travesty" and "tragedy" do sound a lot alike. I can see how someone could easily say one while meaning the other. So if Shaq meant to say on a conference call this week that it would be a "tragedy" if Orlando Magic All-Star center Dwight Howard did indeed leave the city for a brighter NBA spotlight, that's fine. He's entitled to his opinion.
