SPORTS DIGEST Gretzky signs extention By The Associated Press NEW YORK — Wayne Gretzky has made his last move. No, the Great One isn't retiring. He's just staying put. The NHL's all-time leading scorer has signed a contract extension with the New York Rangers that guarantees he will finish his career with the team. "I don't want to go anywhere else," Gretzky said Thursday at Madison Square Garden, where the team announced the deal. "For a professional athlete, this is the greatest city to compete in." The contract extension will keep the 36-year-old scoring king with the Rangers for at least two more seasons. Gretzky reportedly will earn $6.5 million this season and $5 million the following year. Beyond that, it's up to Gretzky. If he wants to continue playing, the Rangers will gladly give him a uniform. "Hopefully, he'll play many more years, but if it's only a few, we'll feel lucky for those," said Rangers president and general manager Neil Smith. Gretzky, who holds or shares 61 league records, enters his 19th NHL season with 862 goals, 1,843 assists and 2,705 points. He has won 10 scoring titles, nine regular-season MVP awards and two Stanley Cup MVPs. Gretzky also has played on four Stanley Cup champions, all with the Edmonton Oilers. •. Basketball Michael Jordan will be there, new contract, new shoes and all. Larry Bird will be there, wearing a whistle for the first time in his life. Alsoin attendance will be Rick Pitino, bringing the run- and-gun style that was successful at Kentucky to the Boston Celtics. And then there's Kevin Garnett, who will lace 'em up undoubtedly feeling; like the happiest 21-year-old on the planet. NBA training camps open Friday,' signaling the start of a 1997-98 season that begins just like five others have this decade — with everyone chasing the£ Chicago Bulls. It's been more than three months since Jordan & Co. walked off the United Center floor with their fifth title in seven years, and the summer was filled with teams either trying to upgrade their talent or find a way to pay for their existing stars. Such was the case with Garnett and the Minnesota Timberwolves, who finally reached agreement Wednesday night. MINNEAPOLIS — The Minnesota Timber- -' wolves began life on Garnett time Thursday, and their $125 million man started off by showing up 63 minutes late. One day after signing the richest contract in the history of professional sports, ' Kevin Garnett overslept and was more than an: hour late for the team's annual media day at Target Center. That immediately drew comparisons to troublesome former Wolves star Isaiah Rider, who was notorious for showing up late — or not at all — for team events. Football DENVER — John Elway was back on the practice field, his throwing shoulder no longer aching. Placekicker Jason Elam wasn't so lucky. Elway, held out of Wednesday's practice because of lingering soreness from taking several hits in the Denver Broncos' 29-21 victory over Atlanta on ' Sunday, resumed throwing Thursday. Golf PINE MOUNTAIN, Ga. — After a grueling weekend in the Ryder Cup trenches, Davis Love III welcomed the relative peace and serenity of the Buick Challenge in the tranquil setting of •, Callaway Gardens. But even though Love's 5-under 67 Thursday left him just one shot behind leader Mike Brisky, it hardly eased the pain of being shut out at Valderrama. "I could win the next 10 tournaments, but we still lost the Ryder Cup," Love said. "Individual golf and team golf are so different. It doesn't make any difference." Gabriel Hjertstedt, the Swedish rookie who won the B.C. Open, 15-year veteran David Ogrin, Gary Hallberg, Brandel Chamblee and Hal Sutton also finished 5-under for the day. ; KUTZTOWN, Pa. — Stefania Croce and Catriona Matthew shot 5-under-par 67s Thursday and shared a one-stroke lead after the first round of the frost-delayed Betsy King*Classic. Croce, an eight-time Italian amateur champion, had six birdies on the 6,075-yard Berkleigh Country Club course. PONTE VEDRA BEACH, Fla. — Jim Colbert, the Senior PGA Tour's player of the year the last two years who underwent prostate cancer surgery in June, said Thursday he will play the last four events on this year's schedule. Colbert's first tournament back will be the Kaanapali Classic on Maui, Hawaii on Oct. 17, Hockey AUBURN HILLS, Mich. — He is 69 years old and ready for one more entry in the record book, though this one is through the back door. Gor^ie Howe will skate one shift in a minor league game Friday night, becoming.the first professional hockey player to play in six decades. Never mind that this is more a hyped tribute than a test of ' hockey skills. Gordie Howe is on the ice again, and that is reason enough for 20,162 fans to buy tickets to watch a bit of history. Howe will be skating for the Detroit Vipers in their International Hockey League opener against the Kansas City Blades. His return was announced a month ago, and soon afterward, The Palace was •sold out for the game. SPOUTS HOTLINE PHONE NUMBERS OF INTEREST .
