It wasn't just the number of losses, it was the way the Vancouver Grizzlies were beginning to lose that cost Brian Winters his head-coaching job. "It's not a matter of wins and losses as much as our attitude," president and general manager Stu Jackson, who will take over the coaching duties until the end of the season, said yesterday. Vancouver has the NBA's worst record, at 8-35. The team has had several one-sided losses at home, including a 19-point defeat to Minnesota on Thursday.

Toronto rookie Marcus Camby sprained his left ankle in an exhibition game against the Vancouver Grizzlies in Calgary yesterday. Camby, the second overall pick in the draft, came down hard on his left leg after making a shot late in the third quarter of a game the Grizzlies won, 80-77. Raptors officials would not say if Camby's injury was the result of a slippery court surface that was brought in from the University of Alberta. Play was stopped for nearly 45 minutes early in the game after Grizzlies guard Greg Anthony took a spill.

Sticking up for Kobe Bryant is proving costly, and Los Angeles Lakers coach Phil Jackson isn't backing down. Jackson and the Lakers were fined $50,000 apiece by the NBA yesterday after the coach said the league was conducting a "witch hunt" against Kobe Bryant. "I thought you only get fined for criticizing the officiating," Jackson said. "They're the sacred cows. But I find out somebody else has a sacred cow somewhere else. " NBA executive vice president Stu Jackson said the fine was for Jackson's "public criticisms of the NBA. " "It's never fun to face that kind of music," Phil Jackson said.

Maurice Cheeks is the New York Knicks' only current player ever to have won an NBA title. But there seems to be some question as to whether a voice of experience has any effect in New York's locker room. Cheeks is 34 and was the starting point guard for the 76ers' 1982-83 championship team. He was traded in the summer of 1989 to San Antonio, then was traded again during last season. His current team, preparing to face the Sixers today at Madison Square Garden, is 16-21 overall, 8-12 at home, with just six wins in its last 16 games.

The expectations are high, maybe even excessive. It is not enough for the New York Knicks to make the NBA playoffs anymore. Not in The Big Town. The media and the fans are clamoring for a championship. And they want it now. Stu Jackson shoulders that burden every time he walks down the corridor leading from the locker room onto the floor of Madison Square Garden. He has been shouldering it, in fact, ever since the day last July when general manager Al Bianchi hired him to succeed the nomadic Rick Pitino, who bolted the pros for the University of Kentucky.

Brian Hill wants to forget Orlando and experience the challenges and opportunities associated with coaching another expansion team. Hill became head coach of the Vancouver Grizzlies yesterday and will direct a team that begins its third year in the NBA after winning 15 and 14 games its first two seasons. He replaces Brian Winters, the first Vancouver coach who was fired Jan. 24. Less than a month later Hill was replaced in Orlando after a player revolt. Hill figures he can overcome the stigma of the Orlando situation by calling upon his experience and teaching credentials.

In 1992, the United States finally fielded an Olympic basketball team of professional players, a juggernaut affectionately called the Dream Team, which outscored opponents by an average of 43.8 points en route to gold. Participation was a privilege. The idea in using the NBA elite was to take the game global, and thus improve it. Talk about outfoxing yourself. "It's evident to the committee that the gap in international competition has closed," said Stu Jackson, chairman of the USA Basketball men's senior national team, which finished a stunning sixth in the World Championships last summer, and now must qualify for the 2004 Olympics.

Two years ago, the New York Knicks - hailing the emergence of Patrick Ewing - looked as if they were ready to step inside the NBA's elite circle. Now, however, they are fighting to stay with the also-rans. The nucleus of the New York team is practically the same as the one that manufactured 52 victories in 1988-89, but, for some reason, the Knicks hit a rut and they are still trying to get out. Could it be the lack of the bond that coaches like to call chemistry? Or is it the wrong mixture of people?

The circus is paying its annual visit to Madison Square Garden, bringing its usual three-ring excitement and five-alarm fragrance. These days, though, it's difficult to tell who lends a more malodorous aroma - the elephants or the Knicks. A team that once was walking on a high wire above the Atlantic Division has lost its balance in the last month. And it may not have the safety net of a home-court advantage to break its fall in the playoffs. The floundering Knicks have lost nine of their last 12 games and 15 of their last 24. They are 0-12 in their last dozen games against the NBA's top 10 teams.

CARMELO ANTHONY was suspended one game by the NBA on Wednesday for confronting Kevin Garnett after the New York Knicks' loss to Boston on Monday. Anthony, who was angry about Garnett's choice of words during a fourth-quarter altercation, went toward the Celtics' locker room after the game and later waited for Garnett outside Boston's team bus. Anthony didn't believe he would be suspended because he was just looking to talk to Garnett, not fight. But NBA executive vice president of operations Stu Jackson ruled otherwise.

Allen Iverson could become the feel-good story of the summer, at least in the eyes of Stu Jackson, the chairman of the selection committee for the United States' Olympic men's basketball team. Iverson, a five-time all-star with the 76ers, and Tim Duncan of the San Antonio Spurs are the only original members of the U.S. team who have stuck to their commitments to play this summer in Athens, Greece. Just last week, Iverson talked publicly about his strong desire to represent the country, and it was music to Jackson's ears.

The Lakers' Kobe Bryant has been extended an invitation to participate; USA Basketball is awaiting his signed contract, spokesman Craig Miller said.

Shaquille O'Neal was dominant again, this time at the ballot box. There was no doubt the powerful Los Angeles Lakers center would win his first NBA Most Valuable Player award for his terrific work this season, with the only question being whether he would be the first unanimous selection. He missed, by one vote. "The first thing I did was call my mother and father," O'Neal said yesterday at the Lakers' practice facility in suburban El Segundo, Calif., where he was presented the Maurice Podoloff Trophy as the NBA's 45th MVP.

Feeling the Vancouver Grizzlies were better than their 4-18 record, president and general manager Stu Jackson said yesterday he was left with no choice but to fire coach Brian Hill. Lionel Hollins, the only remaining member of the coaching staff from the Grizzlies' inaugural season in 1995, will take over on an interim basis for the rest of the season. Hollins, 46, played three seasons for the 76ers from 1979 to '82. He takes over a club that has lost four consecutive games, has won one of its last 15 and following Monday's loss to the Los Angeles Clippers is back at the bottom of the NBA Western Conference standings.
