OAKLAND, Calif. - Steve Kerr is flourishing as a rookie head coach. At 25-5, the Golden State Warriors are off to the best start in franchise history. They also have the NBA's best record, a first since finishing the 1975-76 season with a 59-23 mark. Sixers coach Brett Brown has taken note of the phenomenal job his friend is doing. Brown was an assistant coach for the San Antonio Spurs during Kerr's stints there in the late 1990s and early 2000s. "I think he's taken this group that's had a heck of a run, the past few years anyways, and inherited something and didn't let it go," said Brown, acknowledging that Golden State averaged 49 wins the last two seasons.

OAKLAND, Calif. – The 76ers were focused on improving their perimeter defense. They also should have concentrated on limiting their turnovers. That - not three-point defense - was their glaring Achillies' heel Tuesday night against the Golden State Warriors. The Sixers committed 28 giveaways in a 126-86 loss at Oracle Arena. The Warriors (25-5) scored 43 points off the visitors' turnovers. Eleven of the Sixers' turnovers were committed in the first quarter. The Warriors did make 12 of 28 three-pointers and blocked 11 Sixers' shots.

OAKLAND - When Brett Brown looked down the floor last night at Oracle Arena, he saw a former student of his during his assistant coaching days in San Antonio. One of Brown's favorite stories is about how Steve Kerr, now coach of the Golden State Warriors, came off the bench and helped the Spurs win a Western Conference final series against the Dallas Mavericks in 2003. The Spurs won the NBA title over the New Jersey Nets in six games. He was also looking at a coach who inherited a dynamic team and had already put together 24 wins in 29 games.

HERSHEY - When the tricky stuff didn't work, Archbishop Wood did what it has done best all season. After Central Valley senior Brandon Wilson returned an interception 48 yards for a touchdown to end the half, the Vikings punished the Warriors on the ground the rest of the way. Not a bad plan when Jarrett McClenton and Alex Arcangeli occupy your backfield and you have serious strength up front. Add a physical defensive effort and you get the recipe Wood used to claim its third Class AAA championship in four seasons with a 33-14 win over Central Valley.

BACK IN THE LATE '50s, Stanley H. Lorber, a distinguished Philadelphia physician and a basketball fan, paid a call on Eddie Gottlieb, then the owner of the Philadelphia Warriors. Lorber felt that the Warriors needed a team physician. Gottlieb agreed, and Dr. Lorber became the first team doctor in the NBA. Those were the days of "Jumpin' Joe" Fulks and Paul Arizin, and later the legendary Wilt Chamberlain, who scored his unbeatable 100 points in a game on March 2, 1962, the Warriors' last season in Philly before moving to San Francisco.

The young man was wasting away in his Philadelphia hospital bed, and the young physician treating him couldn't figure out what was wrong. "He had diarrhea, and he had one pneumonia after another," David V. Condoluci recalls. "I felt so inadequate. Everything I was doing wasn't working. And then, he died. " In the summer of 1981, the first cases of what would come to be called AIDS emerged in America - including at the Hospital of the Pennsylvania College of Osteopathic Medicine. Condoluci, an infectious disease specialist who grew up in Rochester, N.Y., had just launched his career at PCOM.

In 1959, Army veteran John Bort came home from serving in Korea and caught a cab from the airport. On Saturday, a mini-motorcycle procession roared in his honor. "Thank you," Bort said softly while standing in the driveway of his home in Norwood, Delaware County, as he was greeted by 25 motorcyclists and 25 others who had come in a procession from a staging area at Interboro High School, about a mile away. More than five decades after serving near the Demilitarized Zone, Bort got the pomp and ceremony that a group of local volunteers believes all troops deserve.

EVER WONDER what it's like to have speed beyond your wildest imagination? We're not talking about driving fast in a car. We're talking speed as in how fast your legs can carry you. Damere Gilbert, a 5-10, 170-pound track star turned wide receiver and defensive back, can tell you. "It's breathtaking," he said. "I can't believe I'm going that fast, but I know I can always get faster. " Gilbert used his "quicks" last night to propel Boys' Latin (6-5) past Southern High, 24-20, in nonleague action at the South Philadelphia Supersite.
