? Coach Al Attles of the Golden State Warriors, on ways to stop Nate Archibald, the NBA's leading scorer: "We have 44 defenses for him but he has 45 ways to score."

?Randy Miller, now a left wing for the AHL's Baltimore Clippers, on his previous boss, Springfield's Eddie Shore: "He was the most unusual man I've ever known. He had some good ideas and some bad ones. Like he used to have us tap dance on our skates during practice."

? Milt Pappas, Chicago Cub pitcher, on Umpire Bruce Froemming, whose call of ball four accounted for the only base runner in Pappas' 8-0 no-hitter against San Diego: "He had a chance to become famous as the umpire in the 12th perfect game in baseball history, and he blew it."
