Magic's All-Star ; The Associated Press NEW YORK - Magic John-: son, the Most Valuable Player in ! last season's NBA Ail-Star j Game, is one of six former MVPs on this year's fan ballot and I then again, he's not. I Johnson will not play in the ; game, and any votes he gets will i not be tabulated, the league an-I nounced Wednesday. ; Johnson was selected to be i placed on the ballot before he ! announced Nov. 2 that he was j retiring for a second time as a . member of the Los Angeles Lak- ers because he has the AIDS ; virus. He also said he had no intention of again playing in the All-Star Game, to be held Feb. 21 at the Delta Center in Salt Lake City, home of the Utah Jazz. Last season, Johnson came out of retirement and led the West to a 153-113 victory over the East at Orlando Arena. He had game-high totals of 25 points and nine assists in winning the MVP for the second time. His first MVP award came in 1990, although the West was beaten by the East 130-113.

A 17,317" Jordan's The Associated Press CHICAGO Michael Jordan's 30-foot jumper at the buzzer gave the Chicago Bulls a 98-96 overtime victory over the Detroit Pistons Wednesday night. Joe Du-mars' 18-foot jumper with four seconds left gave the Pistons a 96-95 lead. But after a timeout, Scottie Pippen inbounded the hall to Rill Jordan Cartwright, and he passed to Jordan, whose shot 7 feet from behind the three-point line connected as time expired. Jordan finished with 37 points. Isiah Thomas led Detroit with 32 points, and Dumars scored 22. B.J. Armstrong had 18 points and Pippen 16 for the Bulls. The lead changed hands five times in the last 37 seconds of IIl.:. ,J Pistons may trade By BRIAN BIGGANE Palm Beach Post Staff Writer AUBURN HILLS, Mich. Dennis Rodman has picked up his share of nicknames. There's "Worm," for the way he contorts his body while playing pinball; 'Country," a reference to his Texas-Oklahoma background; and the latest, "Psycho," which recently has fit him best of all. Miami Heat forward John Salley, who tagged Rodman with both "Country" and "Psycho," didn't anticipate re cent events when he start ed using the Rodman latter a year ago. I called him that because he's into rock music, fast cars, those crazy things," Salley said. "But right now I do think he needs psy chological help." Rodman, perceived by many (including Salley) as an overgrown kid since making the jump from NAIA school Southeastern Oklaho ma State to the Detroit Pistons as a second-round draft pick in 1986. had the best season of his six-year career in 1991-92, averaging 9.8 points and a league-leading 18.7 rebounds. But this season, the two- time All-Star has been coach Ron Rothstein's problem child. First came a 24-day holdout. when Rodman talked about lacking motivation and quitting. Then came his return, when he said things such as "I really didn't miss it," and, "If I didn't have a contract, I never would' ve come back." Then came two games last weekend when he totaled 28 rebounds in 58 minutes and, at times, looked like his old self. But Rodman returned to his recent form at practices Monday and Tuesday, sitting out parts of both workouts with what he said were injuries before ultimately walking out without saying a word to anyone.

Rockets 101, Hawks 82 HOUSTON Vernon Maxwell scored 24 of his 30 points in the second half, leading Houston over Atlanta. Maxwell scored seven points during a 9-0 run that extended the Rockets' lead to 92-77. Hakeem Olajuwon had 26 points and 17 rebounds, and rookie starter Robert Horry scored 14 points for the Rockets. Celtics 109, Hornets 99 CHARLOTTE, N.C. - Xavier McDaniel scored 25 points, and reserve Kevin Gamble 23 as Boston defeated Charlotte. The Hornets were led by Johnny Newman with 24 points, Kendall Gill with 23 and Larry Johnson with 15 points and 15 rebounds. ' Boston coach Chris Ford attributed the win to reserves Gamble, Dee Brown and Joe Kleine. The trio "I have no idea what's going to happen," Rothstein said this week. "He doesn't seem real happy, but he's working hard, and he's playing hard. We're handling it the best we can." Few people know Rodman better than Salley. The two met when they roomed together at the 1986 Aloha Classic All-Star Game in Hawaii, were drafted 1-2 by the Pistons and became the final integral pieces to the team that won the 1989 and '90 NBA championships. "Dennis learned to become a good defensive player by playing against 'AD' (Adrian Dantley) every day," Salley said. "His first love was football, and he compares shutting a guy down defensively to a defensive back shutting down a wide receiver." Rodman was named NBA Defensive Player of the Year in 1990 and '91 and has been a member of the All-Defensive first team the past four years. As the Pistons began to decline, some of Rodman's closest friends Rick Mahorn, James Edwards and even Salley were sent elsewhere. Last summer a bigger blow coach Chuck Daly, perceived by many as Rodman's father figure, resigned. And despite a contract that, if fulfilled, will pay him $2.3 million this season, Rodman struggled within himself for motivation. Rodman's off-court life also has been less than blissful. During the summer he went through a messy divorce, and struggled with an excavation business he bought in Frisco, Texas, hurt by the sluggish economy. The appointment of Rothstein as Daly's replacement, he told friends, was not a choice he would have made. But Rothstein doesn't feel he's central to the problem. "It's not just me," Rothstein said. "There's a whole host of things." "Joe (Dumars) is the only guy on the team he talks to, and he never got along with Isiah (Thomas)," Salley said. "I just think he's gotten to the point where he wants to play somewhere else." win 6-4, streak to 12, as former Devils captain Kirk Muller scored twice in a victory over New Jersey.

HEAT i vvrnvi-oourtiv! topamsnj. About the Heat: Miami is back to its familiar pattern of winning at home and struggling on he road. After back-to-back home wins over division rivals New Jersey and Boston, the Heat start a two-game road trip at one of the 15 NBA arenas where they never have won. The game marks a homecoming of sorts for John Salley, who played his first six seasons with the Pistons, and in a truer sense for Glen Rice and Willi. Burton, who grew up in the Detroit area. Bimbo Coles, who struggled on the road last season, faces the task of guarding Isiah Thomas, an 1 1 -time All-Star About the Pistons: After being stunned in their opener, losing 86-81 at home to' Milwaukee, the Pistons bounced back to win at Indiana 89-87.
