International Jewish Sports
Hall of Fame, located in Israel.
Mazer, his old roomie, said
Friedman as a freshman was
made steward of his dorm to
earn room and board. "But he
had extravagant tastes," Mazer
said, "and he served steak al-
most every meal. The budget
couldn't take it and so we made
him 'honorary steward'."
Shapiro said he felt "some-
what inadequate" to accept the
Hall honor in Friedman's behalf.
Friedman's widow was unable to
attend. She lives in New York.
"Benny Friedman was an out-
standing example of how some-
one with great athletic skill can
enrich our lives and our
memories," Shapiro said.
Oscar Feldman, before intro-
! ducing David Stern, spoke of the
time in 1974 when he advised
Davidson about purchasing the
Pistons from Fred Zollner. "I
told him purchasing the Pistons
was foolhardy," Feldman said
candidly, but with a chuckle.
"... He had the intestinal for-
titude to see the franchise
through a successful tur-
naround."
The Pistons, which never
made money before Davidson
and his partners took over in
1974, has become one of the
most successful teams — finan-
cially and otherwise — in the
NBA. Last year the Pistons led
the league in attendance.
Stern said Davidson, who sits
on a number of NBA commit-
tees, "has made my life ... very
easy" through his leadership
and guidance in major decisions
over the last three years. "Bill,
thanks for not following Oscar's
advice," Stern said.
Davidson, a native Detroiter,
is a business graduate of U-M
who earned a juris doctorate
from Wayne State. He gave up
law practice to take over the
bankrupt Frank W. Kerr
wholesale drug company and
7 within three years paid off its
debts. He took over a surgical
supply company and turned that
around, then a struggling family
business, the Guardian Glass
Company, and made that a big
success and the flagship of his
business interests.
But his pride and joy is the
Pistons.
"I love sports," he told the
dinner audience. "I've always
enjoyed competition. How com-
petitive was I? I used to cheat at
tiddlywinks."
He said he was not only proud
of his basketball franchise, "but
I'm really in love with all the
people in our organization."
Each inductee received a per-
sonal plaque. Four large bronze
plaques outlining their
achievements already have been
installed at the main Jewish
Community Center in West
Bloomfield, along with a plaque
listing all the Hall "Founders"
— those persons contributing
$1,000 or more. The goal is 100
Founders, officials said, with
funds used to send Michigan
athletes to the Maccabiah
Games in Israel every four years
and to establish various projects
at the Center. Among them are

a teen-age nightclub, an 18-hole
miniature golf course inside the
tennis bubble and a youth ac-
tivities center, Foon said.
Al Ackerman, sports director
of WDIV-TV in Detroit, was the
toastmaster at the MJSHF
dinner. He is the secretary of
the association. Bob Steinberg, a
vice president, was dinner
chairman, and David Hermelin
the co-chairman. Doris August,
assistant executive director,
coordinated the dinner. Patrons
also received a 48-page souvenir
book and a Tiger Yearbook.
Other Hall officials are vice
presidents William Jacobs and
Myron Milgrom, Treasurer
Seymour Brode, Executive Di-
rector Milton Fishman, and
Leon Schurgin, legal counsel.
The organization has a 35-
member board of advisers.
Vince Doyle, WWJ Radio
sports director, wrapped up the
evening with some brief com-
ments. Said Doyle, "What moti-
vated these men? Money? No.
For all it was the love of the
game."
