I _/ Carter-Camby feud ugly, petty (AP) - Jim McMahon once said the way Mike Ditka combed his hair made the coach’s head look like a pair of “wing tips.” Ditka didn’t sue. Steve Sax once said spring-training workouts with the Los Angeles Dodgers came with this option: Run around the field three times or around manager Tommy Lasorda once. Lasorda didn’t sue, either. Last week, Knicks forward Marcus Camby called his old coach, Butch Carter of Toronto, “a liar,” and Carter sued. Few skills serve a coach better than learning to tell stars what they want to hear. Carter believes that is hardly the same thing as lying. Judging by the damage figure in the lawsuit filed Friday in New York Supreme Court, the difference is $5 million. Talk about a chilling effect: Players and coaches taking potshots at each other in the newspapers is practically a rite of spring. In sports, it’s known as “bulletin-board material,” generating stories that bring a simmering rivalry to a boil. But if Carter’s suit reaches trial, the practice will be called something else in legal circles: a license to print money. “Inappropriate,” NBA deputy commissioner Russ Granik said just before Carter’s Raptors and Camby’s Knicks opened their playoff series on Sunday in New York. And here’s why. A league already alienating fans because of too many spoiled brats can not afford bruised feelings.

Unhappy over some innocuous comments by 76ers General Manager Billy King about the need for mutual “soul-searching” by the ballplayer and management, Iverson said manage ment might be searching for him on some other team’s roster by this time next year. Camby used the L-word in an inter view with a New York newspaper at midweek, saying that just before he was traded from the Raptors two seasons ago, Carter told him and teammate John Wallace they would form the cor nerstones of the franchise. “No one likes him, and no one wants to play for him,” Camby went on. “That is the kind of guy that he is.” Carter said at first that spending time in Canada had mellowed him to the point where he was prepared to turn the other cheek. A day later, though, he filed the lawsuit in White Plains, saying it was important to clear his name. And then Sunday, after the Knicks beat the poorly prepared Raptors, Carter said the legal action had a bene fit the rest of us never even considered: It shifted the pressure from a first-ever playoff appearance off his team onto his own shoulders. “I think I did that,” Carter said. “I kept the media off them, but I couldn’t keep Sprewell and Houston off of them.” Talk about delusions. This is like the guy who bums down his own house in response to an eviction notice and calls himself unselfish. Carter could have tacked the news clipping with Camby’s remarks to a locker room bul letin board, then gone about the busi ness of getting his team ready to play. He could have prepared Carter for those mgged double-teams the Knicks like to run at shooters that light them up the way he did during the regular sea son. Instead, the coach spent too much time worrying about the wrong court. Carter missed his first 12 shots as New York raced out to a 19-point lead. Camby managed just four points in 24 minutes, playing on a delicate right knee. Midway through the second quarter, Camby made consecutive shots, glared at Coach Carter both times and appeared to mouth an obscenity the second time. In a book just out, Carter accused his old coach, Bob Knight of Indiana, of using a racial slur. He also got into a shouting match with George Karl, his counterpart at Milwaukee, as the regu lar season wound down. “From what I hear,” Camby said, “a lot of people are mad at him.” Looks like it works both ways.
