Ort. 2. 1974 Wilt Would Rather Own Than Coach By Mick Alien SAN DIEGO (AF') - Last season. Wilt Chamberlain didn’t show up to coach at two San Diego Conquistador games. Now pro basketball's all-time leading scorer says he won’t bt* showing up for any games but may become part owner of the team After 14 years playing in the National Basketball Association and one year as a coach in the American Baketball Association, Chamberlain is retiring from the sport he dominated. Dr Leonard Bloom, owner of the Q’s. told a news conference in San Diego Tuesday New Deal Bloom said that means Chamberlain won’t be coaching or playing for the Q’s this season and will forego the remaining two years of his three-year, ll 8 million players ouch contract Asked if the retirement decision was absolute. Bloom said Wilt “always wants to reserve the right to change his mind but for all practical purposes we should conclude Wilt Chamberlain has retired from basketball " But Chamberlain said in a copyrighted interview in the San Diego Union that he may get part ownership of the Q’s. perhaps 25 percent, because of money he says the Q’s still owe him And he said the rea son he missed two games in February was that a payment installment on his contract was way overdue No Pay “I missed those games last year because I didn’t get paid.” he said “Eventually I may be forced to own a piece of this team.”' The 7-foot-2 Chamberlain said he had a one-year (197.1-74) contract with the Q’s for much more than the widely reported $600,000 plus a two-year option Chamberlain was to be* player-coach of the Q’s after lumping from the NBA bis Angeles leakers last year but the Inkers won a court suit that kept him from playing and kept him to coaching yalional (Continued from Page ID ) dieted this spring we would win it and I never doubted for a minute, not even when the Reds got within P*> games of us. that we’d win it.” “I knew all along we were capable of winning this division.'' said Dave Lopes, the lithe second baseman “Winning this first one is a lot more difficult. It s never easy but I feel as though this team is going to stay together and win a lot more We’ll never get complacent, not this team “We had a great year last season but didn t win Then ut* made those two super trades (for Wynn and Marshall) and that was all we needed We proved that we are the best by beating everybody in our division. The biggest thing we did was beat Cincinnati head-and-head ” Expos I. Cards 2 Mike Jorgensen’s two-run homer in the eighth inning gave Montreal its victory over St Louis. Willie Davis singled with two out off B«)b Gibson, 11-13. in the Montreal eighth and stole second before Jorgensen belted his lith homer of the baseball season over the right field fence Daring base running by Bake McBride and a single by Mike Tyson helped St Louis break all tie in the seventh McBride reached base when he forced .Im* Torre at second after Torre had walked off Mike Torrez With Ken Reitz it the plate. McBride easily stole second but was stunned momentarily when catcher Barry Foote’s throw appeared to hit him on his helmet But the speedy Cardinal center fielder picked himself up and with Reitz still up, he dove head-first into third Reitz fanned but Tyson, who entered the game with a 222 batting average, lined a single past third baseman Bob Bailey to score McBride with the go-ahead run The Cardinals took a 1-0 lead in the top of fourth inning on Reggie Smith's leadoff homer Pirates I.
