Boxing promoter Don King saw all he needed
Tuesday night at the Boston Garden. Yesterday, he
telephoned his old buddy Red Auerbach, president of
the Boston Celtics.
"Hey Red, Don King, how you - "
"King, I've told you a million times," shouted
Auerbach. "Even with that atrocious haircut of yours,
you simply are not weird-looking enough to play for
the Celtics! The boys will have nothing to do with it!"
"NO, NO," protested King. "I gave up on that
notion years ago. With people like Fred Roberts, Greg
Kite, Conner Henry, and that Bird guy, I figure you got
enough guys on your team who can't run or jump."
"Hey now, don't be making fun of our talent,"
roared Auerbach. "Heck, Fred Roberts can even dunk!"
"You don't say," exclaimed King. "Well, that's
beside the point. I was doing some thinking. If the
Pontiac Silverdome can draw 90,000 to watch
Wrestlemania, imagine how many people we can
sucker into watching the Boston Celtics boxing team
on tour. It'll be bigger than Hagler-Leonard.
"HECK," continued King. "I figure we can make
Sichting a middleweight, Bird a light-heavyweight, and
McHale and Parish heavyweights. It'll be great. We can
have three world champions in no time, four if we put
McHale in the WBA and Parish in the WBC."
"I don't know," said Auerbach, lighting up a cigar.
"You mean you think they can't fight?" asked King.
"No," answered Auerbach. "I mean, I don't know.
Haven't you ever heard me do color commentary on a
pro telecast?"

"WE BEANITOWNES have done plenty of
rounds," said Auerbach. "Why, next to smoking - "
"And talent," interrupted King. "Are we talking
talent? Did you see Sichting last year against
Sampson? Or McHale in the stands at Milwaukee? Or
Bird against Laimbeer? Or Parish against Laimbeer?"
"Gee whiz, Don, I have no clue as to what you are
talking about," answered Auerbach.
"C'mon, man! You at least had to have seen
Parish's four-punch flurry! I love the way he hits a
man whose knees are buckling and back is turned. You
mean to tell me you didn't see it?"
"HECK, NO," said Auerbach, laughing. "The refs
never said a word about it. You're getting old, Don."
"Well, anyway. As boxers, those guys have got a
legitimate chance to be world champions."
"World champions!" yelled Auerbach. "Now you're
talking! We've got no chance getting by the Lakers on
the court. You think we can get Magic in the ring?"
"Only if you're willing to let him and Bird go one
on one, said King. Silence at the other end. "What's
wrong?" demanded King.
Auerbach answered. "Bird's already signed with the
Red Sox. Did you see his fastball in game three?"
