Spurs make it official
San Antonio drafts Robinson, trades Gilmore
By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
The basketball Class of 1987 will be a barr! one to grade.
David Robinson, the unquestioned star of the college crop, is more than two years away from stepping from a Navy uniform into an NBA one And the other players drafted Monday ire of such questionable quality that a projected third-round selection became the No. 5 pick with a strong showing in tryout camps and J-foot-J Tyrone Bogues was the 12th player taken “Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Marty Blake, the NBA’s chief scout, said. In two years, you will say this is a good draft.”
In two years, after his Naval commitment is completed, the 7-foot-l Robinson will be either a signee of the San Antonio Spurs, who took him No I Monday, or the NBA could be facing a free-agent chase reminiscent of baseball’s signing frenzies in the early 1980s.
“We feel very comfortable wo can do it or we wouldn’t have drafted him. ' Spurs President Angelo Drossos said As far as signing him to a contract we will pay him whatever it takes
I'm trying to keep an open mind about it. Robinson said of his selection by the Spurs I hope to go down to San Antonio and look around get to know the organization, and see the people in charge I don’t want to make any decisions right away.”
In the meantime, the Spurs will bide their time and try to win enough games and draw enough fans to stay afloat With Robinson in limbo, it appears that the Chicago Bulls, with 3,00b-point scorer Michael Jordan and little else last season, helped themselves more than any other team The Bulls added Scottie Pippen of Central Arkansas, a 6-7 forward who so impressed scouts in postseason camps that he was made the No 5 pick; 6-10 Horace Grant of Clemson and 38-year-
old center Allis fillmore on draft dav
Gilmore, 7-2, 265 pounds, had a slow start last season after coming into camp out of shape
“I think this might help some of our driving players.” Weiss said I think we’ll be able to tie a little more consistent with our passing game
“When Artis did come in our guys would automatically want to wait and get him down there in that box and throw it in
“There were times when Antis could be productive for us then. but at the same time be changed everybody else’s game a little bit Weiss said
Pippen was selected by Seattle who traded ins signing rights to Chicago for the righto to 6-11 center Olden Poly nice, a second-round pick in 1988 or 1989 and the option to trade first-round picks if. 1988 or 1989 Gilmore was acquired from San Antonio for another second-round pick in 1988

WIMBLEDON, England (AP) The familiar sight of rain greeted the second day of the Wimbledon tennis championships today and organizers braced for a second successive total washout and more rescheduling of matches.
As a steady drizzle fell at the All England Club, the tarpaulins, which had earlier been withdrawn from the 18 grass courts courts, were put back in place and spectators again huddled together in rainwear and under umbrellas.
The rain prevented a prompt start
on the outside courts where play had been due to begin today It looked almost certain to cause a further delay of Boris Becker’s entrance on Centre Court to open the defense of bis men’s title against Karel Novaeek of Czechoslovakia
That match, and Ivan J^ndl's opener against Christian Saceanu of Romania on Court I, were scheduled to l>egm today.
Never have the first two days at Wimbledon been rained out but officials were not ready to press the panic button
Today’s program was to include all of Monday’s postponed matches The day’s original schedule, which was lo have featured defending women’s champion Martina Navratilova, was postponed until Wednesday Whatever the weather, No. 4 seed Hana Mandlikova will not see any action in the tournament Mandlikova, last year’s beaten finalist dropped out with an injured foot Organizers said today that No b seed Helena Sukova of Czechoslovakia had been moved up one spot in the women’s seedings to
replace Mandlikova Hor seeding is being left unfilled
Monday s rainout was only the 22nd the fourth of opening day in Wimbledon's 101-year history
After a complete washout >f opening day at the world's most prestigious grass court tennis tournament, organizers said the;* might consider moving the Mart *f the tournament back a week to try to catch better conditions
The fans stayed around Monda\ during the rain but were not ha pp}

Bv thf associated prfss
The Boston Red Sox have reason to feel good about baseball again after watching Dennis “Oil Can” Boyd pitch for the first time this season.
“It’s good to be back,” Boyd said atter allowing only five hits and two runs Monday night in his 1987 major-league debut. Boston defeated the Milwaukee Brewers >-2 iii a game called iii the eighth inning because of rain.
Boyd, 1-0, threw 82 pitches in an impressive return from the disabled list. Except for three rehabilitation darts in the minors, he had not pitched since a Florida exhibition tame March 25 because of tendinitis iii his right shoulder.
Boyd, who left after seven innings, was iii a happy mood iii the clubhouse liter tin* game was called with reliever Calvin Schiraldi on the mound and the count 1-2 with Dale Sveum batting in the eighth.
“I’m on a mission,” Boyd said. “I feel I’m still capable of winning 15 ball games, and those 15 games will be credited to the team. I think I’m a big plus. I can help the team get going.”

Tom Seaver announces his retirement at 42
NEW YORK * AP) — He has been called “The Franchise” and “Tom Terrfic.” Ill five years, Tom Seaver will also be called a Hall of Fame pitcher.
Seaver retired from baseball Monday atter a 20-year career with the New York Meta, Cincinnati Reds, Chicago White Sox and Boston Red Sox.
But Seaver will always he remembered in a Meta’ uniform as the man who turned a lovable loser into a formidable force.
At the age of 42 and coining off knee surgery, Seaver answered die Mets’ call for help when their pitching staff was decimated by injuries.
“I had the opportunity to see if there were
another three months or another 15 games left in my arm,” Seaver said at a Shea Stadium news conference to announce his retirement. "There are no more pitches there. I’ve used them all up ” And, he used them very well.
Seaver ended his career with a record of 311-205, a 2.86 earned run average and 3,640 strikeouts. He won three National League Cy Young Awards with the Mets and is the club’s all-time winner with 198 victories, including 25 in 1969 when New York won the World Series.
Seaver and the Mets originally hoped he could make his first major-league start this season on June 20. But he was hit hard in an exhibition start
against the Mets’ Class AAA Tidewater team and in two simulated games against teammates.
“It’s with a sense of mixed emotions I’m announcing my retirement,” Seaver said. “It was a very easy decision to make. Based on my own evaluation in the way I was throwing the last couple of weeks. I was not pleased with my progress. As a matter of fact, I felt I was regressing.”
“I realized I can’t help them as a pitcher and I trust my own intelligence and my own heart in making that decision,” Seaver said.
