SPORT FEATURES NBA'S CLASSIEST PLAYERS

     In the wake of SPORTS ILLUSTRATED's cover story on the bad
boys of the NBA, the current issue of SPORT profiles the NBA's
All Class Team. "Amid all this trash-talking, finger-pointing,
chest-thumping and camera-posing," the league's classy players
are almost "forgotten."  The "bad boys of the NBA have muscled
the good guys clear out of the spotlight."  Among the classy: Joe
Dumars, Mark Price, Clyde Drexler, Grant Hill, Dan Majerle, Buck
Williams and David Robinson.   When asked what caused the
problem, some say "the NBA helped create this potential monster
when it accepted the Bad Boys image created by Dennis Rodman,
Bill Laimbeer and Isiah Thomas."  Dumars: "The league and
everybody else jumped on that and promoted the heck out of the
Bad Boys" (Darryl Howerton, SPORT, 3/95 issue).
