A story about t h e Vietnam
war - no, it's only the existing
situation in the National Bas-
ketball Association as the New
York Knicks get ready to en-
tertain the Seattle Supersonics
in the opening game of the lea-
gue's 25th season tonight.
The NBA is engaged in bitter
conflict with the American Bas-
ketball Association on every-
thing from gate proceeds to ref-
erees. In addition to highjacking
four of the NBA's top referees,
Norm Drucker, Joe Gushue, Earl
Strom, and John Vanek, t h e
ABA has made successful ap-
proaches to such NBA stars as
the Pistons' Dave Bing, the
76ers' Billy Cunningham and
Luke Jackson, temporarilly, and
the Hawks' Zelmo Beatty.
The jumpings have resulted
in a plethora of confusing af-
fairs for the NBA's teams as
several of the jumping players
will be playing this season, and
even next season, for their old
teams. Such players w ill un-
doubtedly be subject to carful
perusals by skeptical sports fans,
who w ill be trying to decide
whether the player is giving his
all.
Meanwhile, the NBA itself was
adding to the confusion by toy-
ing with ABA stars and making
several coaching changes. The
senior circuit signed Connie
Hawkins and Rick Barry, the
ABA's two superstars, to con-
tracts. Barry, however, will be
playing in the ABA unless the
courts decide otherwise.
In addition to Hawkins, sev-
eral other newcomers should
make impressions on the NBA.

Celtics Jo-Jo White, Phoenix
Neal Walk, and Milwaukee has
a center out of UCLA by the
name of Lew Alcindor, who
comes into the pros with more
publicity than any other rookie
in the history of the NBA.
Seattle, Cincinnati, Los An-
geles, Detroit, and Boston all
have new coaches. Lenny Wil-
kens, the star of Seattle's Sup-
ersonics, has picked up the
coaching duties from Al Bian-
chi, who shifted to the ABA's
Washington Capitols. Joe Mul-
laney, former Providence men-
tor, succeeds B ill van Breda
Kolff, the new Piston coach, at
Los Angeles. Bob Cousy h a s
come out of retirement to coach
Cincinnati, and his old team-
mate Tommy Heinsohn succeeds
Bill Russell as Celtic mentor.
The latter shift marks t h e
end of an era in pro basketball
- since the mid-fifties the Cel-
tics, led by Russell have domi-
inated the NBA, but with the
big center's retirement along
with a similar move by S a m
Jones, the World Champions do
not seem like prime threats for
a title, and may even have prob-
lems gaining a playoff spot in
the tough Eastern Division.
The Celts still h a v e John
Havlicek, Bailey Howell, D o n
Nelson and Larry Siegfried, but
Henry Finkel, the Celt center
does not compare to Russell and
Em Bryant is no Sam Jones.
The Celts have high hopes that
Kansas' Jo-Jo White, who will
join the team in December, will
give the team the added lift to
enable the Celts to make the
playoffs.
The heir apparent to the Celts
are the New York Knicks, who
finished a close third in t h e
East last season despite a dis-
astrous first six weeks and in-
juries to Cazzie Russell and Phil
Jackson. Knick coach Red Holz-
man is in the happy circum-
stances of having Russell, Jack-
son, Dave Stallworth, Nam
Bowman, Don May, Bill Hos-
ket, Mike Riordan, and John

have
Walt

Jack Mullaney should have lit-
tle trouble in guiding the team
into the West's top position.
The Lakers' top challenge
probably would haye come from
the Atlanta Hawks, but Zelmo
Beatty jumped to the ABA and
has said he will not play pro
basketball this season. The
Hawks picked up D a v e New-
mark, but the Columbia gradu-
ate was singularly unimpressive
last season as a rookie with the
Chicago Bulls. TIhe addition of
Beard could s a v e the Hawks
from oblivion.
The surprise team in the West
could be the Phoenix Suns.
Phoenix will add Connie Hawk-
ins, who is expected by many to
achieve superstar status, Neal
Walk, and Jerry Chambers, to a
cast which included Gail God-
drich and Dick van Arsdale.
Chicago has had a fine exhi-
bition season, but the additions
of Chet Walker and West Wes-
ley should not make the team
much more of a contender than
it was last season. San Francis-
co should h a v e little trouble
making the playoffs but any-
thing beyond that is doubtful.
Rudy LaRusso has retired put-
ting the load on the backs of
Nate Thurmond and Jeff Mul-
lins.
San Diego will rest its hopes
on NBA scoring champion Elvin
Hayes while Seattle will have to
receive outstanding performan-
ces from Wilkens, Bob R ule,
rookie Lucius Allen, and new-
comer Bob Boozer to make the
playoffs.
In the ABA, the Indiana Pac-
ers, featuring Mel Daniels, will
be the team to stop in the East
while the Washington Capitols
rule as the favorites in the West,
if Rick Barry plays with the
team. The Miami Floridians and
Carolina Cougars should chal-
lenge the Pacers in the East,
while Washington's main oppo-
sition will come from the Los
Angeles Stars.

Warren all on the bench. Back-
ing up the starting five of Walt
Frazier, Dick Barnett, Willis
Reed, Bill Bradley a n d Dave
Debusschere.
Many observers felt t h e
Knicks could have gone all the
way if they could have avoided
the injuries to Russell, Jackson,
Frazier (in the playoffs); how-
ever, the additions of Stall-
worth, back after a heart attack
two. years ago, and Warren, a
rookie out of St. John's n o w
give the Knicks more depth
than any other NBA squad.
The Knicks' main obstacles in
the East are the Baltimore Bul-
lets and perhaps the Philadel-
phia 76ers. The Bullets won the
division title last y e a r before
losing four straight to New York
in the playoffs, and m us t be

considered major threats with
a nucleus of Jack Marin, Ray
Scott, Earl Monroe, Gus John-
son, Kevin Loughery and Wes
Unseld.
The 76ers would normally be
considered a prime threat, but
Cunningham is playing out his
option, Jackson, has jumped to
the ABA and back again, and
Chet Walker was traded for Chi-
cago's Jim Washington after
threatening to retire. The Six-
ers still have Hal Greer, Archie
Clark, and Wally Jones, and ad-
ditions, Bud Ogden and Dave
Scholz could make the team a
viable choice.
Battling with the Celts for the
fourth playoff spot in the East
will be the Milwaukee Bucks,
Cincinnati Royals, and Detroit
Pistons. The Bucks have Lew

Alcindor and there is a preva-
lent belief that he may make
the Bucks a contender almost
singlehandedly. Any, team with
Oscar Robertson and Jerry Lu-
cas will h a v e to be reckoned
with, but the Royals have had
the duo for several years with-
out notably progress. Detroit
has the potential to surprise,
but Bing's impending jump and
a knee injury suffered in the
interim by the former Syracuse
All-American casts doubts about
the Pistons' ability to be com-
petitive.
In the West the story is sim-
ple, the Los Angeles Lakers. The
presecne of Wilt Chamberlain,
Jerry West, and Elgin Baylor
does not make the Lakers a sup-
er team, but it does make the
team strong enough so that the
