E Dual destinies
By BILL CUSUMANO
Cazzie Russell and Bill Bradley.
They were two legendary names in college basketball, the two
greatest players in the country four years ago. Since Dec. 30, 1964,
the night of their classic confrontation in Madison Square Garden,
their careers have been inexorably intertwined.
They simultaneously responded to each other's greatness that
night to give the collegiate game one of its finest moments. They each
displayed that same greatness in every other contest which they
played in and both were named Player of the Year in their respective
The New York Knickerbockers made Bradley their top draft
choice in 1965 and followed by picking Russell number one in
1966. Both had poor rookie seasons and then blossomed into solid
pros in their second year. Both have been maturing steadily and
recently have given signs that they might reach the superstar
status predicted for them.
Russell has been a mainstay for the Knicks this year. He is the
number two scorer and shows the same ability he had in colleg to
make the clutch plays. But tragedy struck the former Michigan great
on Tuesday night when he suffered a broken ankle. The man who
is being counted on to replace him is, ironically, Bill Bradley.
As long as it took Cazzie to mature, it has taken Bradley even
longer. Much of the luster of Bradley's collegiate brilliance has worn
off, but he has been slowly coming on. Top observers now feel that
he could become the Bill Bradley of old if he just played more, and
a cruel twist of fate is now giving him that opportunity.
The tragic image
Russell's injury makes him something of a tragic hero. He had
been an instrumental factor in the Knicks winning 17 of 19 games
as the team appeared to be on its way' to overtaking the league
leaders. Any slump now will be blamed upon Cazzie's misfortune. On
the other' hand, should Bradley emerge as a team leader and top
scorer, the broken ankle will be regarded as a blessing in disguise.
It is a reversal of roles for the two because Bradley always
was cast in the tragic position during his undergraduate days. He
scored 41 points against Michigan in the Garden and had beaten
the Wolverines single-handedly for 35 minutes. But he also had
exhausted himself; which caused him to foul out and have to
watch helplessly as Michigan won on a last second Russell Jump
Bill Bradley stood proudly as bedlam erupted but the white
towel he threw away cruelly symbolized that he had won the battle
and Cazzie had won the war. Bradley also fouled out when Prince-
ton fell to Michigan in the NCAA tournament but he captured the
heart of America and Michigan had a bad guy reputation everywhere
except Ann Arbor.
Bradley was more than an athlete to people, he was a demigod.
When he failed as a pro his supporters claimed that his two years
as a Rhodes scholar had ruined him. It always seemed that circum-
stances worked against him while others such as Cazzie Russell got
the breaks, won in the end, had fate on their side.

A common fate
Russell and Bradley have been moving in each other's shadow
for four years now and created a lot of drama in the sporting
FI world. The current chapter of their story could be the most
interesting, though. Cazzie's injury is certainly'a disastrous blow
to the Knicks but the jeopardy In which his own career has been
placed is an even more important matter.
Broken bones are mysterious items; one can never tell how an
athlete will recover, If at all. Cazzie Russellcan do nothing now but
wait. In that time Bill Bradley has to prove himself.
When Russell returns he may be faced with the task of beating
out Bradley, which would be the reverse of the situation two years
ago. Whatever the case, both may start, checking the horoscope
columns, for their stars seem to have crossed somewhere and one's
fate dictates that of the other.
