  • NAMES IN THE NEWS

         BERNARD KING has informed NJ Gov. CHRISTIE TODD WHITMAN that
    he did not wish to be named as a commissioner on the NJ Sports &
    Exposition Authority.  He was nominated September 19 (NEWSDAY,
    10/8). ...Tennis champion GUILLERMO VILAS is interviewed by PETER
    BODO in the latest TENNIS magazine. Vilas, on the image of
    today's tennis players: "Agents are all trying to make their guys
    uncontroversial and smooth because they want to develop certain
    images for them ... Today, it's like guys don't know who they are
    or who they want to be."  Vilas: "Players hang around their
    agents too much.  Agents are pretty square.  They're not going to
    know, never mind want to go, if the Rolling Stones are playing in
    some small club in a bad part of town.  It isn't good for
    business" (TENNIS, 11/96 issue)....CHARLES BARKLEY on TIGER
    WOODS: "Tiger Woods is probably the most important person in
    sports since Jackie Robinson as far as that situation
    [shouldering the aspirations of blacks].  ... All the black guys
    are very proud of what he has accomplished.  And we're behind him
    110 percent, but it's going to be a long, tough struggle"
    (HOUSTON CHRONICLE, 10/8).
