to Lenny Wilkens once again His first thought after coaching his victory was of the lone champi onship he has won with Seattle in 1979 Not far behind were becoming the NBAs winningest coach last year coaching in four NBA AllStar games and his 1990 induction into the Basket ball Hall of Fame for accomplishments as a player Perhaps Ill get in to the Hall as a coach Wilkens said after the Atlanta Hawks defeated Cleveland 7468 Friday night Not many coaches do In this case count on it Here is a man who has shown that nice guys can sur vive and thrive Here is someone who has demonstrated that a coach doesnt have to yell and scream and stomp around on the sideline to get results Take note all you young coaching hot heads of a man who has won games with quiet dignity You dont see that often in any said Atlanta guard Craig Ehlo who has played for Wilkens since 1987 Id say Lennys record is pretty Of course on a night when nostalgia and reminiscing were in order it didnt take long for Wilkens to return his focus to the tasks ahead At age 58 the fire to coach still burns with whitehot intensi ty Wilkens will fulfill another goal this summer when he coaches Dream Team HJ at the Atlanta Olympics but he said his primary aim is to bring the city its first NBA title If we add one more quality player well be he said That doesnt mean Im giving up on this The Hawks are a team devoid of any true superstars yet they stood at 3224 heading into Saturday nights game at Milwaukee Atlanta was tied for fifth in the Eastern Conference one game behind Cleveland for homecourt advantage in the first round of the playoffs This may be the trademark team of his career which is marked by his abili ty to push mediocre teams and players to victories Unicorns Cougars Get all the scores in Sundays
