The article presents information on developments related to basketball in the U.S. The National Basketball Association's leading 3-point shooter entering the week was none other than the Chicago Bulls SF Andres Nocioni, but the modest Argentine wants no part of the 3-point shooting contest in Houston next month. The Detroit Pistons's Flip Saunders will be the Eastern Conference coach in the All-Star Game, which makes him only the sixth man to coach the game for both conferences. If one was wondering why the Atlanta Hawks SG Salim Stoudamire, the team's hot-shooting rookie, didn't suit up against the New York Knicks recently: He had thrown his inhaler and towel at the feet of the coaching staff when he was taken out of the previous game.
