In Development
?A sitcom coproduced by Timberwolves forward Kevin Garnett, who reportedly has teamed with producer Brad Grey ( The Sopranos) and Hungry Man, the outfit that created those self-mocking behind-the-scenes ESPN promos, to do a series based on Garnett's entourage, which he calls the Official Block Party.

Ejected
? Dennis Rodman, from prospective Mavericks owner Mark Cuban's guest house. The Worm had been renting the 1,800-foot residence since signing with Dallas on Feb. 3, but the league said the arrangement violated the salary cap. Rodman has moved to the trendy Deep Ellum section of Dallas, home of the city's hottest nightlife scene.

Enrolled
?In Harvard Business School, former NHL enforcer Ken Baumgartner, 33, who had 13 goals and 2,244 penalty minutes in 13 seasons. Quizzed by a reporter about the apparent anomaly of a onetime goon going to business school, the Bomber, now a Bruins assistant, shot back, "What were your GMAT scores? What was your GPA?"

Ignored
?A recent vote allowing Texas Motor Speedway to sell beer. After being flooded with complaints from irate race fans who would have been prevented from toting in their own beer coolers, Speedway general manager Eddie Gossage decided not to take advantage of the new law, thus passing up an estimated $1.2 million in annual revenue.
