OTHER NOTES: Univ. of Louisville basketball coach Denny Crum "recorded a radio spot praising ... longtime friend" Jim Bunning, a GOP U.S. Senate candidate in KY. Celtics President/coach Rick Pitino has endorsed Bunning's opponent, Scotty Baesler. While some "questioned whether Crum's actions might imply a university role," Crum did not introduce himself as the university's coach (LEXINGTON HERALD-LEADER, 11/1)....Claudia Schiffer, Spike Lee, Billy Baldwin, Ed Burns, Richard Lewis, Rick Moranis, Matthew Modine, Chris Rock,, Fran Drescher, Jimmy Smits and Malik Yoba are all featured in intros to the Knicks starting lineup which will air before games (N.Y.
