  • NAMES IN THE NEWS

              CNN's "Showbiz Today" included a profile on SEAN
         "PUFFY" COMBS, an avid Knicks fan who now sits courtside at
         home games.  BILLY BALDWIN: "As he's climbed the billboard
         charts, he's climbed around the corner to midcourt" (CNN,
         1/15). ...ALLEN IVERSON is profiled in VIBE magazine.  HENRY
         "QUE" GASKINS, who handles all Iverson-related business for
         Reebok: "Young kids saw Allen at Georgetown and said, 'He's
         cool ... He's just like me off the court, the baggy clothes,
         the braids.' ... It hurts Allen when people say he's the
         Tupac of basketball.  Allen is not trying to be 'thug life.' 
         He just wants to be real.  He's just a young black man with
         confidence" (VIBE, 2/98 issue)....Golfers PETER JACOBSEN,
