NBA, CBS CITED:
SAN DIEGO (AP) - Television ratings in the National Basketball Asso-
ciation are suffering because of racist decisions by management and CBS,
charges former all-pro Oscar Robertson.
"The on ners say there are too many blacks playing the game, and the
same time interest in the league is down, and they say that is the reason.
"Well, I think it's because they've done a bad job of promoting the
league," said Robertson in an interview with The San Diego Union.
WHILE THE NBA "just went out and hired a big New York public
relations firm to help them with their image." he believes the league should
have simply let the players go into the community. But they feel the black
image is bad for the league.
"And yet, what's the most successful organization in sports history? I'll
tell you. The Harlem Globetrotters - and they're all black."
The former University of Cincinnati scoring great said CBS has to share
"First of all, CBS has not done a good job of promoting the games, and
also they (the owners) don't want blacks as broadcasters. They've got Rick
Barry, Rod Hundley, Brent Musberger, who are all white. but how many
blacks are there? I was on for a while, but I had that lawsuit against the
owners. so they said they didn't want me."
ON OTHER subjects, Robertson said the NBA has declined because
fewer high school coaches emphasize defense. And he rapped the NBA's
recent adoption of the three-point play as "horrendous."
"The NBA isn't as good as it used to be, and I think it's because coaching
at the high school level isn't what it used to be.
"When I was in high school, we spent hours on defense, and that's where
today's players are having trouble.
"You cannot makea guy do something he hasn't done. Today, I see guys
do a lot of things and wonder why they do them."
On the three-point play, Robertson called it "another example of people
who don't play the game messing with the rules. Did they ever take a poll of
the players? They say it'll draw more people, but what did it do for the ABA?
"If they think it'll help teams who are behind catch up, they're wrong.
You catch up by playing good basketball."

Olympie Village rises
MSOCOW (AP) - A lot of wrinkles
have to be ironed out, but Moscow is
well on top of its job of preparing for
next year's Olympic Games.
Construction of the competition sites
and the press center is well advanced.
Sports organization is good. Training fa
cilities are described by visiting spor-
tsmen as unbelievable.
The Olympic Village in the Remenki
district, where 12,000 competitors and
team officials will live, is virtually
finished and will be the finest Olympic
Village of all time.
This is not Soviet propaganda. Mem-
bers of the International Olympic
Committee and leaders of the sports
federations are here for the Soviet
Spartacade sports festival, and they all
There are some grouses, and the
Russians have one year to put things'
right. The complaints are mainly
-Bureaucratic muddles, leading to
delays in issuing visas.
-Food that sometimes seems
strange and unappetizing to visitors
from the United States and Western
-A sloppy information and results
service for the press and sports officials
at the Spartacade.
The village consists of 18 high-rise 16-

story apartment blocks. Most of the
apartments bave two bedrooms, a
lounge, a kitchen-breakfastdroomsand
bathroom. They are fitted out with
cooking facilities down to an electric
samovar for making tea.
These things can be irksome, but
none of them destroy the image of a city

ADRIAAN PAULEN, Dutch
president of the International Amateru
Athletic Federation, contrasted the
planning in Moscow with the situation
in Montreal one year before the 1976
"We prayed that everything would be
all right in Montreal," Paulen said.
