He has made mistakes, but he's human and learning. He is a caricaturist, a father, a God-fearing believer, a competitor, a winner. Allen Iverson is mourning the death of a close friend, but he has drawn strength and perspective from the friend's passing. He is short. He plays hard. He no longer finds joy in rapping. He is addicted to tattoos, and when he dies, he wants to know that he is going to heaven. All of these points are outlined in a compelling interview in the March issue of Playboy magazine, available on newsstands Friday.

Phoenix Mercury forward Lisa Harrison won't be revealing all of herself for Playboy magazine, after all. "It came down to the money issue," she said.

" She had indicated she would consider appearing in Playboy because she could use the money. In last night's game: At New York, Vickie Johnson scored 22 points and the Liberty advanced to the Eastern Conference finals with a 72-61 victory over Miami in Game 3 of the best-of-three series.

Playboy magazine recently announced that it will do away with its famous photographs of heavily airbrushed, lightly attired women, an ironic development for countless men of a certain age who disingenuously claimed to subscribe "for the articles. " Those still yearning for antiquated chauvinist thrills, however, can find plenty of sympathy in the highest reaches of the Pennsylvania judiciary. Last year, while hurriedly exonerating state Supreme Court Justice J. Michael Eakin in Harrisburg's then-blossoming pornographic email scandal, an attorney for the state's Judicial Conduct Board noted in a letter to the justice that the contents of his inbox "could best be described as mildly pornographic or sexually suggestive in the vein of material that commonly appears in Playboy magazine.

There is a cosmic ring to the title This Mansion Is a Hole: Hugh Hefner Throws a Party at the Center of the Universe that has little pertinence to the earthy content and atmosphere of the show itself. This is a piece steeped in sexual eroticism, suggestion and titillation - all that one would expect in something inspired by the founder of Playboy magazine and American high priest of sex. At least that's how Hefner was regarded in the 1960s, and pop culture of that era has been the concern of Whit MacLaughlin, head of the locally based New Paradise Laboratories theater group, in the comic trilogy that he and his company have been presenting at Philadelphia Fringe Festivals.

Roxanne Dacus, a former Long Island madam, had a few harsh words for Jessica Hahn yesterday. "She was a rather hard girl for her age," said Dacus. "Very arrogant . . . lazy . . . snotty . . . she hit below the belt. " Dacus, in a Penthouse magazine interview released this week, said Hahn worked for her as a prostitute 10 years ago. She alleged that Hahn had sex with as many as 40 men in one night. Hahn denies the charge. She says she was a virgin who was raped by PTL Club minister Jim Bakker.

Not long after the dominoes began falling in Eastern Europe, Playboy magazine bought a full-page ad in the New York Times to announce that it had become the first "American consumer magazine" to be published in Hungarian. Playboy said it was not surprised, "since we're the magazine that led a social revolution in America by standing for personal, political and economic freedom. " The headline on the ad read, "Exporting the American Dream. " More like a nightmare, since many of those who embraced the Playboy philosophy of "if it feels good, do it" have suffered broken marriages, unwanted pregnancies, abortion and AIDS.
