BULLETS HOPE TO BID FOR '98 ALL-STAR GAME IF ARENA COMPLETE

     The Bullets have told the NBA that they would like to host
the All-Star Game in 1998 if construction of their proposed new
arena begins on time, according to Richard Justice in this
morning's WASHINGTON POST.  Bullets Owner Abe Pollin hopes to
break ground on the facility in August.  If the downtown arena is
completed on time, Pollin's position "as the league's senior
owner" should help in securing the game.  The franchise last held
the All-Star Game in '80 (WASHINGTON POST, 3/28).
