BULLISH ON CHICAGO:
NBA Govs okay Celtics' sale
NEW YORK (A') - The sale
of the Boston Celtics for
$5.1 million to real estate ty-
coon Robert Schmertz was ap-
proved yesterday by the Nation-
al Basketball Association's
Board of Governors,
At the same time, the board
rejected a $5 million bid by
nine-man group from Milwau-
kee and Chicago, headed by
Marvin L. Fishman, for pur-
chase of the Chicago Bulls.
In making the announce-
m e n t s, NBA Commissioner
Walter Kennedy said that the
governors did not vote unani-
mously on either action, but he
did not disclose the vote. Thir-
teen of 17 votes were needed
SCHMERTZ, 46, of Lakewood,
N.J., is a part owner of the
New England Whalers of the
new World Hockey Association.
He had been a minority stock-
holder in the NBA's Portland
team, but divested his interest
in the Trail Blazers upon pur-
chasing the Celtics.
The Celtics will continue to
play in Boston Garden, where
they have a year-to-year lease,
and Arnold "Red" Auerbach
will remain as the club's presi-
dent and general manager, it
However, it is expected that
Schmertz will try and build a
new stadium in the Boston area
to house the Celtics and Wa-
Schmertz, who purchased the
Celtics from Investors Funding
Corp., which had owned the
club since 1971, will be only the
second sole owner in the team's
26-year history. The other was
the late Walter Brown, who
bought the team in 1946. He
died in 1964.
"Boston is a very good
sports town and I'm confident
that with the proper promo-

tions and an intensive season
ticket sales drive we can im-
prove the attendance," said
Schmertz. "I'm ready to do
whatever Red feels is neces-
Last season, the Celtics had
their biggest attendance in his-
tory, more than 300,000 but
were outdrawn by the Boston
Bruins of the National Hockey
League and the Boston Braves
of the American Hockey
The Fishman group's offer to
purchase the Bulls from Elmer
Rich was apparently rejected
because it had been unable to
obtain a lease for Chicago Sta-
dium, where the club played
last season. Fishman, however,
said he had signed a three-year
lease to play a full schedule of
Bulls games in the Chicago
The Stadium seats about 19,-
500 for basketball, while the
Amphitheatre, where the Bulls
played during the 1966-67 sea-
son, holds only some 10,500.
ARTHUR WIRTZ, owner of
the Stadium, belongs to a group
which has offered to buy the
Bulls. He has refused to discuss
lease terms with the Fishman
"I'm disappointed by the
temporary setback our group
received today," said Fishman,
a Milwaukee realtor and minor-
ity stockholder of the NBA's
Milwaukee Bucks. "I would like
to emphasize the word tempor-
ary. We intend to pursue every
legal action to assure our ac-
quisition of the team."
