NAMES IN THE NEWS

          DENNIS RODMAN appeared on "Larry King Live" on Friday
     night.  On his decision to get into movies: "I like to
     perform, I like to be an entertainer, and I just don't want
     to be known as a basketball player, an athlete so called, so
     I just tested the waters in the movie industry."   On
     whether he will stay in Chicago after this season, when he
     will be an unrestricted free agent: "I'll be very diplomatic
     about this.  If we win, I'll come back.  If we don't win, I
     see no way in hell that I'll be back."  Rodman presented a
     pair of the new Converse Rodman sneakers to King at the end
     of the program ("Larry King Live," CNN, 3/28)....Orioles
     Owner PETER ANGELOS wrote a letter to the editor in response
     to a March 4 column by the Washington Post's Tony Kornheiser
     entitled, "View From Owner's Box Is Out in Left Field." 
     Angelos: "Since Kornheiser has never interviewed me or even
     called for an interview, I think it is highly presumptuous
     of him to criticize my thoughts or motivation" (WASHINGTON
     POST, 3/29)....MARTINA HINGIS, following her win over MONICA
     SELES at the Lipton Championships: "I'd like to thank
     (tournament sponsor) Rado, but I can't because I'm sponsored
     by Omega" (THE DAILY).
