Lakers, Knicks, Bucks almost out THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Despite additions to the playoff format this season, Los Angeles Lakers, Milwaukee Bucks and New York post- season heading for elimination from this year's National Basket- ball Association playoffs. The Lakers, who have not missed the post-season com- petition since moving to Los Angeles from Minneapolis in 1960, are in the biggest danger of being eliminated. They are in last place in the five-team Pacific Division of the Western Conference. The Bucks also are in last place, in the Western Confer- ence's four-team Midwest Division, but they are closer to playoff contention than the 'Lakers. Milwaukee has reach- ed the playoffs every year since Kareem Abdul-Jabbar joined the team in 1969. Of the three perennial pow- erhouses, the Knicks have the best chance of making the playoffs. New York, which has participated in them every year since 1967, is in third place in the Atlantic Division of the Eastern Conference. Under the NBA's revised playoff formula this season, five teams from each the top two teams in each division and the third-place club with the best record in the con- playoff berths. Last season, only eight teams instead of 10 participated. If the regular season ended still are six weeks to playoff teams would be Boston and Buffalo from the Atlantic Division; Washington, Cleveland and "wild card" Houston from the East's Cen- tral Division; Chicago, Kan- sas City-Omaha and "wild card" Detroit from the Midwest Division; and Golden State and Seattle from the Pacific Division, In the East, Houston has a 31-31 record and a slight edge over New York, '29-31, for the final playoff spot. In the West, Detroit is 32-32, with Milwaukee not far behind at 28-31- Hotel widens broomball lead KAI YIP INSTRUCTS FIGHTER DURING WINTER GAMES BOXING Honored boxing guest at Games Yip renews old friendships By GARRY ALLISON Herald Sports Writer Besides providing top competition in many varied sports the Canada Winter Games also provided the oppor- tunity for many former Lethbridge sportsmen and athletes to return home as special guests. One of the guests of the boxing committee was a former well known local boxer, Kai Yip. Yip was one of Southern Alberta's top ranked boxers between 1954 and 1959. In that period of time he managed to win four Alberta championships and two Canadian titles plus.represent the nation in the British Empire Games. He is also one of the very few Canadian amateur box- ers to ever be written up in The Ring magazine. However it was not for his fistic prowess, but his poor memory. "I was boxing in the Midland Golden Gloves in Billings, Yip recalled. "I just had my trunks on and took them off to put on my protector when my trainer, Tony Bogusky, came running into the room and told me we were supposed to be in the ring, ready to box. "In the rush I grabbed my robe and headed for the ring. When the announcer introduced us I danced out to the middle of the ring, opening my robe as I went. It was then that I suddenly realized I had forgot something my trunks! "You wouldn't believe how fast I did that robe up. By this time the bell rang to start the fight. The referee came over to see why I wasn't out of the corner. I explained the problem. And do you know, that he had them announce it over the P.A. why there would be a delay. Boy was I red in the face. "When I returned to the ring I was mad. Boy, I beat that guy, I beat him bad." Ring magazine picked up the story in their annual windup of strange happenings in the ring. While the Billings incident may have been embarass- ing and funny there are many ligitimate highlights to Yip's fistic career. He won his first Alberta title in 1954 when he was declared the most outstanding novice boxer on the card as well as the 100 pound champion. In 1955 he took the 110 pound championship and became the only junior fighter at that time to have ever received the Canadian Legion Belt. "I won the Alberta 112- pound class in 1956 and then went to Montreal for the Canadian championships! First I defeated the reigning champion Keith Morrow and then I beat Honeyboy Long to win the 112 pound Canadian championship. It was quite a thrill." Kai fought in the Canadians with a unique problem. He had burned his right arm quite badly a month prior to the championships when he spilled a bucket of hot tar over himself while taring a roof. "The bucket dropped out of my hand and splashed up on my shoulder, arm and leg, I was all right all over ex- cept where I had my sleeve rolled up. I still have the scar today." The arm gave him trouble during the finals, bleeding badly during some of his bouts, but through some minor miracle the referee didn't stop the fight and the doctors allowed him to continue in the tournament despite the in- jury- In 1957 The Herald carried a story headed "Yip hangs up gloves-for school Those who remember Kai in school would question the reason behind that headline. "The real reason was that I had just won a Canadian title, the first one any Lethbridge boxer had won outside of Southern Alberta, and I was only 15. Things seemed anti climatic to continue in boxing so I decided to quit Kai stated. But 1958 found Yip back in the gym. He lost the Southern Alberta'bantamweight crown championship battle to Max Gibb, and for all intents and purposes should have been eliminated from further championship competition for the year. But fate stepped in. Gibb had broken his hand in winning the fight and Yip was selected to continue on and represent Southern Alberta in the Alberta championships. He won the title and then travelled to Vancouverfor the Canadians with another Lethbridge boxer Eddie LeBaron. "LeBaron was. heavier than I was but some of the best fights that took place here took place between Ed and I -in the gym. Tony Bogusky always used to say that we should sell tickets to our sparring sessions." Yip met and beat Alphonse Chabot to grab his second Canadian championship. But the best was yet to come. He was chosen 'to .represent Canada in the British Empire Games stated for Cardiff, Wales. He fought twice in the Games, winning his first bout over a boxer from Ghana but losing a narrow split deci- sion to a fighter from Australia who eventually went on to win the silver medal in the Games. Yip had his troubles in Cardiff, being cut over the eye in a sparring session and spraining both his thumbs in train- ing as well. But he was a worthy representative for Canada and Lethbridge. Kai retired once again in 1959 and in 1960 he left Lethbridge to move to the sunny climate of Vancouver. "I started boxing again in 1962 but the layoff was a bit too long and I finally hung them up for good." Over his short number of years in the ring Yip fought close to 100 fights, many with well known Southern Alber- tans. "I lost my first three fights to Verdon Herd of Cardston but then I came on to beat him the next five times we fought. I had a few good battles with Max Gibb, iMorris Holy Whiteman, Gerald Sarka of Picture Butte, some exhibition bouts with guys heavier than me like LeBaron and Charlie Smallface." He won the Golden Gloves in, 1955 and 1956 and claims he owes his success to trainer Tony Bogusky, still the trainer with the Lethbridge boxing club. "Tony is the best' trainer in Canada. Under him I never got hurt once in the ring because he taught me the right way to move, slip punches and the proper footwork. I have a lot of good memories from boxing with Tony and I have no regrets about my years in the ring." Today Kai is a trainer himself, working with a club of 40 boys with Harold Mann in Prince George, B.C. "I got a lot out of boxing so I decided to give back a little. Boxing made me a better person, it gave me a place to vent my aggressions. Its the best sport a boy can go in- to. It builds his character." There are those who remember the rugged little 119 pounder from his days in the ring who would find it hard to believe that Kai Yip is now a serious thinking, successful business man with a wife and three children, happily spending his days in Prince George, B.C. He and his wife Wendy have three children, Shannon, Shelly and Steven, and Kai is the Sales Manager for Cana- dian Motorola in the Prince George area. His visit back home during the Canada Winter Games was a pleasent one, both for Kai and for the many old friends he re lived the "old days" with for an hour or two between boxing cards at the Games. Of Kai Yip it can truly be said, "local boy makes good."
