CHAMPION SPURS GET WHITE HOUSE WELCOME

President Clinton welcomed the NBA champion San Antonio Spurs to the White House on Tuesday, telling the team that politics is like basketball.

"You get ahead, you get behind," said Clinton, a self-described "basketball fanatic."

Clinton extended a special welcome to forward Sean Elliott, who underwent a kidney transplant last month.

Elliott "is an inspiration to a lot of people who have kidney transplants, especially if he can come back for training camp," Spurs captain Avery Johnson said.
