Extractions: PLAYING BY THE RULES TRANSCRIPT The recent conflict over basketball player Mahmoud Abdul-Rauf's refusal to stand during the National Anthem has sparked debate over the balance between religious and patriotic duty. Following a report on the controversy by Tom Bearden, Charlayne Hunter-Gault discusses Islam's growing role with an expert and the social impact with essayist Roger Rosenblatt. CHARLAYNE HUNTER-GAULT: A battle of wills between the National Basketball Association and one of its star players ended today. It was a struggle that stirred up strong feelings about religion and patriotism. Tom Bearden begins our report. TOM BEARDEN: Twenty-seven-year-old Mississippi-born Mahmoud Abdul-Rauf, is a five-year NBA veteran. Formerly known as Chris Jackson, he changed his name in 1991 after converting to Islam. Abdul-Rauf is one of the Denver Nuggets' best players, averaging 19.6 points per game. He leads the league in free throw percentage, making 93 percent of his foul shots. Unlike his teammates, Abdul Rauf has not stood during the National Anthem for the entire season. Most of the time he didn't come onto the court until the opening ceremonies were over. But his actions escaped widespread public attention until this week. Reaction was immediate and overwhelmingly negative. UNIDENTIFIED MAN: I think it's ridiculous! I respect his religious beliefs, but he should also respect the fact that he lives in a country greater than any other, and it's a matter of standing out of respect.

Extractions: Chris Jackson was the 3rd selection overall in the 1990 NBA Draft, by the Denver Nuggets. In his rookie season he averaged 14.1 points in 22.1 minutes coming off the bench! The next season was very bad, for a variety of reasons and his scoring dropped to 10.3 points. In 1992-'93 though, he established himself as the starting point guard of the Denver Nuggets, and scored a career-high 19.2 ppg. He remained a starter and maintained his game in high levels for the next 3 seasons. In 1994 he shot an amazing 95.6% in free-throws and in 1996 he matched his career-high in points (19.2) and established a new one in assists (6.8). He played in Sacramento during the 1996-'97 season. He scored 13.7 points in 28.4 minutes, mostly as a starter. The next year he played only 31 games, scoring 7.3 points off the bench. His next and final season was with the Memphis Grizzlies in 2000-'01, where he played a secondary role, helping a young team with his experience and good scoring in limited minutes. After this, he decided to retire.

He [Growing up in America,] I eventually found that . . .emotionally, spiritually, I could not afford to be a racist. As I got older, I gradually got past believing that black was either the best or the worst. It just was. The black man who had the most profound influence on me was Malcolm X. I had read "Muhammad Speaks", the Black Muslim newspaper, but even in the early sixties, their brand of racism was unacceptable to me. It held the identical hostility as white racism, and for all my anger and resent ment, I understood that rage can do very little to change anything. It's just a continual negative spiral that feeds on itself, and who needs that? . . .Malcolm X was different. He'd made a trip to Mecca, and realized that Islam embraced people of all color. He was assassinated in 1965, and though I didn't know much about him then, his death hit hard because I knew he was talking about black pride, about self-help and lifting ourselves up. And I liked his attitude of non-subservience. . . .Malcolm X's autobiography came out in 1966, when I was a freshman at UCLA, and I read it right before my nineteenth birthday. It made a bigger impression on me than any book I had ever read, turning me around totally. I started to look at things differently, instead of accepting the mainstream viewpoint.
