Again he has problems guarding Robertson (who doesn't?).
"You don't guard Oscar," he admits. "You just try to stay close."
Howie Komives agrees, and explains his own method of guarding
him. Suddenly finding himself isolated on 'O' during the game, he
just grabbed Robertson around the waist and didn't let go. ("I didn't
care so much about his scoring-I knew he would. But I wasn't gonna
let him make a fool of me ..."
Cazzie finishes the game off-a New York victory-un-
spectacularly. The crowd incredibly goes slightly ape when he
sinks simple jumpers, and oohs and aahs when he just rims a
good hook. But although you can see him gaining confidence as
he plays, showing good stuff as a floor general toward the end' of
his second stint instead of merely calling one of the Knicks' set
plays, there is nothing apparently remarkable about Russell
other than his unbelievable appeal to the crowd.
During other games, in for the same amount of time, he has
scored well. He has won a few for the Knicks, at least one single-
Cazzie is not contented. He wants to play. ("You have to be
able to handle the ball. And I've been practicing hard, and I can
do it now.") He might have been better off if he had started
with the guard-less Pistons. But his challenge now is in New
York, and he wants to make it with the Knicks and only with the

but will be back in the Midwest over the summer doing a couple
of sports shows in Chicago. On Feb. 27, Cazzie will return to Ann
Arbor to receive the Chicago Tribune award for being the Big Ten's
MVP last year. ("I've been following Michigan in the papers. They've
got a good young club, I think. But it takes time to start putting it
together. When that happens ....")
Will he make it in the NBA?
"The pressure isn't a big thing," said Cazzie of the problems
of his rookie season. "There's no big difference in the pressure.'It
doesn't really bother me."
And he's right. The normal pressures of the performer prob-
ably don't bother him. The kind of pressure that most plagues
a Cazzie Russell is the kind that comes from inside.
Like the thing that brought him to Michigan's academic rough-
house instead of to basketball powers like Ohio State or Cincinnati.
And the thing that sent him to summer school last year to earn the
few final credits he needed for his diploma, instead of ending his
academic career when he finished his varsity career as other star
athletes tend to do.

there on the bench, and isn't out there starting with the rest of

Cazzie will make it. He could probably do it on desire alone.
