Sports Arena and Memorial Coliseum (PHILADELPHIA INQUIRER, 1/22)....ANFERNEE HARDAWAY says local "outrage" over SHAQUILLE O'NEAL's pending fatherhood could affect the team's future. Hardaway: "A guy like Shaquille doesn't have to take anything from anybody, especially in Orlando. If they keep putting pressure on him, maybe that will drive him away, to somewhere like Los Angeles or a bigger city where people don't make a big deal about anything like this" (HOUSTON CHRONICLE, 1/21)....Agent JEFFREY NEWPORT was fined $16,500 by the state for violating TX's athlete/agent law -- the largest such fine since the law was enacted.
