LONDON - When Ray Harryhausen was 13, he was so overwhelmed by "King Kong" that he vowed he would create otherworldly creatures on film. He fulfilled his desire as an adult, thrilling audiences with skeletons in a sword fight, a gigantic octopus destroying the Golden Gate Bridge and a six-armed dancing goddess. On Tuesday, Harryhausen, 92, died at London's Hammersmith Hospital, where he had been receiving treatment for about a week. Though little known by the general public, Harryhausen made 17 movies that are cherished by devotees of film fantasy.

ON MONDAY, NBA player Jason Collins broke the news that he was gay via a story on Sports Illustrated's website. By doing so, he became the first active male professional athlete to admit he was homosexual. Yesterday, another website revealed another bombshell: The 34-year-old, who played for the Celtics and Wizards this season, was engaged to a former WNBA player. TMZ reported that Collins dated Carolyn Moos for 8 years and the two were planning to be wed before parting ways 4 years ago. And, according to the report, Moos said she had no idea Collins was gay until he called her over the weekend.

WASHINGTON - As Doug Collins walked off the court at the Verizon Center at halftime on Friday, two 76ers, Thaddeus Young and Damien Wilkins, had something to say to him. "They said, 'Coach, you know we are going to keep fighting and competing,' " Collins said. "That was fun to hear. " Facing a Washington team that, like the 76ers, is playing out the remaining string of games on its schedule, the Sixers fell behind by 13 points in the second quarter and then outscored the Wizards by 69-45 the rest of the way, ending a three-game losing streak with a 97-86 win.

WASHINGTON - While 76ers coach Doug Collins has not addressed a column in Thursday's Inquirer that indicated ownership wants him to resign, there are others in front offices around the league that are willing to talk about it.

LeBron James left one rebound shy of a triple-double. That's about all the Heat could complain about. James finished with 24 points, 11 assists, and nine rebounds, and the Heat won their 27th straight by running away at the finish to beat the Magic, 108-94, on Monday night in Orlando, Fla. Miami pushed its lead to 20 before Heat coach Erik Spoelstra emptied the bench in what was his 250th win with the team.

Two of the Bobcats' NBA-low 14 wins came against the Celtics, including a 100-74 blowout in Charlotte on Tuesday.
