It is the most desired and lacking skill in the NBA - the ability to shoot from the perimeter. One of the worst-shooting teams is the New Jersey Nets, who shot 37 percent in the NBA Finals against San Antonio. The Nets took a player many labeled the best shooter in the draft in 6-foot-7 Kyle Korver of Creighton with the 51st pick in the second round and then traded his rights to the 76ers for an undisclosed amount of cash. Nets general manager Rod Thorn issued a statement in response to questions about Korver and why a team that can't shoot would trade the best shooter in the draft to an Atlantic Division rival.

JOE NEARY wants the man who shot his brother off the street. "This can't happen to somebody else. It's too painful," Neary said of the ordeal that began for his family last Tuesday, when police say that a gunman accosted Kevin Neary, 29, outside his Northern Liberties apartment and shot him in the neck, possibly paralyzing him. "It's such a senseless act," Joe Neary, 31, said. "Right now, I just don't have words for it. " He said that his brother's spinal column is so severely damaged, he may never be able to move his limbs again.

Philadelphia has its share of hate crimes, too. One was played out in court yesterday.

One of the bullets seriously injured 15-year-old Marcus Kane, said Assistant District Attorney Richard Negrin.

Michael Cook celebrated the New Year with a few shots. Not shots of booze. He fired four shots into the air in the back yard of his home on Seltzer Street near 13th, at 12:02 a.m. His action backfired on him. Cook, 32, was seen shooting by two cops. Police yelled at him, and he turned and ran into his house. Cops chased him and confiscated his 9-mm gun and took him into custody. Yesterday, Cook wound up before a former cop, Municipal Judge Seamus P. McCaffery, who had previously jailed three of four other New Year's shooters.

FBI Director James B. Comey said Thursday that investigators were not currently seeking any other suspects in last week's shooting of a Philadelphia police officer by a man who pledged allegiance to the Islamic State. Comey said authorities had found nothing to suggest that confessed shooter Edward Archer was part of an organized terrorist cell or was planning any follow-up attack. He downplayed the significance of an anonymous tip police received Saturday that Archer, 30, of Yeadon, might have worked with three other men whose religious beliefs were more radical.

Federal and local authorities are continuing to investigate a tipster's claim that Edward Archer, the man charged in the shooting of Philadelphia Police Officer Jesse Hartnett, was part of a small group of men with radical beliefs, officials said Monday. Homicide Capt. James Clark said that after a weekend of investigating, authorities have been unable to substantiate the tip, delivered to police by a woman who warned that "the threat to police is not over," and said Archer was associated with a group of three other men more radical than he. "We're investigating it, but we haven't found anything yet," Clark said.

After a 9-19 season and a coaching change, the Penn Quakers under Steve Donahue will play a different style but use most of the same personnel. So expect a work in progress. Donahue is pleased with how Penn's veterans have adapted to his offensive system, which is all layups and three-pointers or trips to the foul line. Given this emphasis, Donahue will go a little smaller, with 6-foot-4 junior Matt Howard expected to start at the power forward position. So starting out, look for a couple of true guards and a couple of wing players and then a center, 6-11 senior Darien Nelson-Henry, who will be asked to use different skills, including setting up shop farther from the basket.

SO YESTERDAY'S lockdown was the result of two young men having a dispute. There was no lone deadeye gunman on a mission to pick off strangers at Community College of Philadelphia. And everyone exhaled a sigh of relief. That's how low the bar has fallen when it comes to Americans and our homegrown terrorists: We feel grateful when a mass-killing gun scare turns out to be a run-of-the-mill gun scare. That's because we prefer our gun victims to die one at a time, not all at once.

The doctor faced his patient for the first time since last July, when a routine office visit turned into a deadly shootout. Psychiatrist Lee Silverman said he saw Richard Plotts in some ways as the depressed man he had treated - a man in deep pain. "Or do I see you as the perpetrator of the most horrible and egregious thing that I have ever witnessed?" Silverman said, standing in a Delaware County courtroom Friday. "You've become a monster who visits me in my nightmares. " Plotts, 50, was sentenced to life in prison Friday for killing caseworker Theresa Hunt and attempting to kill Silverman.
