TELLEM HOW IT IS, ARN: COMBUSTIBLE CLIENTS KEEP AGENT BUSY

          Agent ARN TELLEM is profiled by Richard Weiner in the
     cover story of USA TODAY's sports section.  Weiner: "Fairly
     or not, Tellem has become known as a top representative for
     today's disgruntled star athletes."  With a client list that
     includes LATRELL SPREWELL, ISAIAH RIDER and ALBERT BELLE,
     among others, Tellem "has been thrust into high-profile,
     problem-solving mode."  Tellem: "I think that's something I
     have done effectively for a lot of my clients."  Weiner
     writes that Tellem "is basically a baseball nerd who became
     a lawyer, then an agent. ... The book on Tellem is mixed, as
     one would expect.  His clients swear by him, just as he does
     for them.  His competitors are weary of speaking one way or
     the other.  Executives tolerate Tellem as they would any
     other well-connected agent" (USA TODAY, 12/16).
