Girl Power is different

from Wife Power

David Beckham, world-famous soccer player also known as Mr. Posh Spice, insists he is not henpecked. He says he _ and he alone _ will decide if he stays with England's Manchester United. The midfielder says he wants to stay if the sides can agree on a new contract. His current deal is up in two years. He dismissed suggestions that the wife wants him to move abroad. "People say that Victoria is pulling me away from the club, which she has never done," he said. Victoria might pull him toward a bigger paycheck given that her primary source of income is becoming extinct.

The problem is clear

Magic coach Doc Rivers still can't believe former teammate Dominique Wilkins was not on the list of the NBA's alleged 50 greatest players. "Dominique was such a great player, such a pleasure to watch and to play with," Rivers said. "The difference between (top 50 member) James Worthy and Dominique is that James had Magic Johnson and Dominique had me."
