BILL LAIMBEER The histrionic whining and intentional provocation that Detroit's Bill Laimbeer practices (Vintage Whine, Nov. 5) is exactly the style of play that the majority of NBA coaches try to discourage. Unfortunately, too many young players now believe that acting like Laimbeer is not only acceptable but also desirable. Stories such as yours only contribute to the problem. MIKE SMITH Winona, Minn.

Lude has done an outstanding job for the Huskies: He leaves behind an expanded stadium seating 72,500, well-funded women's athletics, a new indoor tennis center, a new women's basketball locker room and adequate financial resources derived primarily from a highly successful football program.

No one really knows why he was dismissed. Perhaps it was because university officials didn't like Lude's outspoken manner.

TWO-SPORT MEN
Steve Rushin's YESTERDAY (Oct. 22) about how, 27 years ago, after a brief stint in the major leagues, Dodger manager Tommy Lasorda pursued a career as an NBA referee, reminded me of another California baseball personality, former Angel third base coach Lawrence (Moose) Stubing. Stubing works in the off-season as a college basketball official. He has an impressive paunch, but that does not keep him from racing nimbly up and down the court.
