EWING COMMANDS NEW CENTER OF ATTENTION AS NBPA PRESIDENT

          The NBPA elected Patrick Ewing as its new president,
     according to Roscoe Nance of USA TODAY.  NBPA Exec Dir Billy
     Hunter and Ewing's agent, David Falk, both called Ewing one
     of the top player "experts" on the CBA.  Ewing: "My goal is
     to make sure the players stay unified ... We have a lot of
     important business ahead of us, and there is no limit to
     what we can accomplish if we stay together."  Joining Ewing
     on the Exec Committee are First VP Charles Smith, VPs Tyrone
     Corbin, Juwan Howard, Dikembe Mutombo, Mitch Richmond, Mark
     West and Herb Williams and Secretary/Treasurer Jim McIlvaine
     (USA TODAY, 9/16).  Ewing will serve a four-year term as
     president and now has "one of the strongest voices in the
     union he once tried to decertify" (N.Y. TIMES, 9/16).
