ASHEVILLE, N.C. (AP) - New coach Mike Dunlap of the Charlotte Bobcats makes no bones about it: He's intense.

That's one of the reasons Bobcats owner Michael Jordan, who knows a thing or two about intensity, put Dunlap in charge of resurrecting a team that finished with an NBA-worst 7-59 record and lost its final 23 games last season.

With Jordan looking on from the bleachers at UNC-Asheville's Kimmel Arena, Dunlap ran players through their first training camp practice.

Players said practice was swift, the energy level high and the intensity omnipresent on the floor.

That surprised no one.

Guard Gerald Henderson says the "high energy" Dunlap "set the tone for this team" the moment he walked on the floor as the Bobcats coach this past June for the first voluntary workouts.

Hey John

how about Major League Baseball?

An exciting American League east going right to the wire.

Great pitching duel in Tampa Bay as The Orioles took the Rays 1-0 on a Davis home run. His sixth consecutive game with a homer.

11 innings of excitement as the Yankees took out the Bosox to maintain a 1 game league lead.

Now let the O's win tonight and the Yanks lose; voila you have a tie for first place with I believe a single game playoff tomorrow.

Winner gets sole possession of first place and a few days rest. Loser gets the wild card and plays either Friday or Saturday.

Now that's exciting.
