Nice Guys Finish FirstWhat a pleasure it was to read Rick Telander's POINT AFTER about the Bulls' Phil Jackson and the Lakers' Mike Dunleavy (June 17). What with the media hype over the Michael vs. Magic NBA Finals, I'm glad someone took the time to pay tribute to these outstanding coaches. This series was a classic example of two teams' taking their cue from their coaches' behavior, thus making for an exciting, fun-to-watch Finals. I hope it will help to stamp out the dirty, whining style of play to which we have become accustomed from the NBA's elite players.DAVE BENDER Kalamazoo, Mich.

Mystery Solved
I am wondering about the object Atlanta Braves pitcher Tom Glavine keeps in his back pocket while on the mound (INSIDE BASEBALL, June 10). If it's an emery board, it could be the reason for Glavine's outstanding performances this year.

? Glavine's left arm, not balls roughed up by an emery board, gets the credit for his excellent season: The mystery object in Glavine's pocket is a tongue depressor he uses to clean the dirt from his cleats.—ED.
