FRANK TALK
Sirs:
Thanks for Ray Cave's wonderful article on my favorite team, the Philadelphia Warriors, my favorite player, Wilt Chamberlain, and now, I guess, my favorite coach, Frank McGuire (McGuire Raises a Standard, Oct. 30).
CLIFFORD WERNER
State College, Pa.

Sirs:
Is it possible that Ray Cave is writing about the same Frank McGuire that I know about? This McGuire, a former basketball coach at the University of North Carolina, was the coach who:

1) Criticized his own athletic director in an open press conference.

2) Criticized the ACC commissioner openly.

3) Recruited so vigorously that the University of North Carolina was put on probation by the NCAA.

4) In his quiet, aloof way, intimidated the referees more than the holler coaches.

A great coach? Yes. A great gentleman? We-e-ll.

Sirs:
We here at Carolina were lucky to have this man for basketball coach, and we just hope the pro game will profit as much as we did.

Sirs:
The best thing ever to happen to the NBA.
