? Mercury Morris of the Miami Dolphins: "In practice I try to play it like a game. Other guys run 10 to 15 yards. I score every time. I run away from guys that aren't there, but they're going to be there in a game."
? Julius Boros, who will become resident pro at the new country club, Aventura, near Gulfstream Park in Florida, suggesting a casual attitude toward the game: "What if your shot isn't perfect? You're out there for some fresh air, a good time and some exercise. No game is worth the agony some golfers go through. When you lose your temper after missing a shot the chances are you will miss the next shot, too."
?Rolland Todd, coach of the Portland Trailblazers, on UCLA's Sidney Wicks: "I don't recall a forward coming into the NBA in the last 20 years who had the ability of Sidney Wicks. Wicks would fill about three vacancies on our club. He has been playing against NBA players on the Los Angeles playgrounds since he was about 13."
