Buying an IBM PS/2
before December 31


can help you go places.
Places lie these
for only $1,49, round-trip.

Loy Vaught played basketball
at Michigan because it was the
only big school that recruited'
him. He played in the shadow of
Terry Mills, the Wolverines'
prized recruit.
So it is only fitting that after
emerging into the collegiate

his show.
But this is not your average
story of an instant millionaire
engaging in a life of hedonism.
Vaught always conducted
himself with class, and he
continues to do so after signing a
four-year, $4.1 million dollar
contract with the Clippers.
He did not relate his new
lifestyle with arrogance and
pretense. Instead, he spoke like a
wide-eyed kid who got rewarded
for his hard work.
"All my years I thought I was
relatively unknown," Vaught
explained. "Going to the draft in
New York in itself was a big
thrill. Then when I got drafted, it
was pure happiness."
Vaught has averaged eight
points in 20 minutes per game as a
forward for a Los Angeles club
that is flooded with superb college
talent, but has yet to crack the
group of elite Western teams.
"To play in May - that's our
slogan," Vaught said. "We have
the personnel, so we just have to
put ou- nose to the grinds -one and
work hard."
But whether the Clippers
contend for the NBA title or
remain in the Western cellar,
Vaught will enjoy his new job.
"Okay, there are 24 hours in a
day," Vaught explained excitedly.
"A practice or a game takes about
two hours. That gives you 22
hours every day to do whatever
you want.
"The job itself is pretty easy,"
Vaught added. "I'm just thrilled
to be where I am."
It's a safe bet to say that a lot
of people are thrilled for him as

Since the moment the
Milwaukee Bucks drafted him
with the 16th pick overall, Terry
Mills has been the subject of trade
talks. Even now, as the NBA
season is underway, Mills
remains at his Romulus, Mich.,
home talking with the Denver
Nuggets about his future in
Milwaukee sent Mills to the
Nuggets immediately after the
draft, in return for Danny
Schayes. Denver reportedly
offered Mills $600,000 per year, a
figure Mills rejected.
Instead, the 6-foot-10 forward
opted to sign a two-year, $2.4
million contract with the Paouk

limelight, Vaught should
establish himself in a city where
the limelight shines the brightest
- Los Angeles.
Vaught elevated his game ad
infinitum at Michigan, and now
it seems that as the thirteenth
pick overall by the Clippers, he
has elevated his social status as
He lives in a waterfront
condominium in Marina Del Rev
and frequents the L.A. club scene
with Eddie Murphy and Mickey
Rourke. Noted Clipper fan
Arsenio Hall is also included
among Vaught's new friends, and
he may soon interview Vaught on
