Sixteen Logansport, Indiana, Pharos-TObtnw Today's Sport Parade (Reg. U.S. Pat. Off.) By OSCAR FKALEY U>*:ccl Press Sports Writer NEW YORK (UP) — Major league basketball expansion to the West Coast still is two o" three years away. National Basketball Assn. President Maurice Podoloff said today, but is as certain as the move just made by big league baseball. The next additions in the NBA •will be Chicago, Baltimore and Pittsburgh as the league works toward an eventual 15 to 18 teams in three separate divisions. Podo- loff thinks it probable that Chicago will be in next season. Talent is no problem but cities which have large enough playing arenas are the big stumbling block. "That's the major problem on the West Coast," Podolotf ex- plains. "The Cow Palace in San Francisco is adequate but we have lo wail for buildings in Los Angeles and Portland. The difficulty is lhat they aren't off the ground yet." Two A Minimum The little Napoleon of pro basketball figures that the West Coast can get into the pro basketball race when it comes up with a second adequate building. "We can start with two as a minimum on th3 West Coast." he says in his staccato voice. "But actually they need four or five teams 'to compose their own division. Ihcn we-can have Eastern, Midwestern and Western divisions. The grand scheme, when such a setup finally is evolved, would accent local rivalries and cut cut down ETAO SHRD CMFWY down on intersectional travel. There would be a certain amount of intersectional play under the three-division plan but the main accent would be on intra-seclional rivalries. "This is a national sport just as much as pro football and baseball," Podoloff explains. "There- are 20 cities with a population of more than 500,000 people and we plan to move in on most of them." From a shaky beginning, pro j basketball has become a sure-fire I proposition and the general recon- 'struction of what will eventually be a strong three-division circuit ( was started this season when the 'Rochester and Fort Wayna franchises were moved to Detroit and Cincinnati. Two Cities Return "The two new cities arc coming along in nice shape," Podoloff asserted. "Remember, in the first year of operation, Detroit, St. Louis and Chicago all subsequently dropped out. But we have two of them back and eventually will get Chicago, probably next season." Despite the large number of col- lege stars being turned ou: each year, Podoloff is among thoae who feel that too rapid expansion would cause a "dilution" of the teams' overall strength. "But by building .gradually we are making certain that none of the teams will be watered down," he insisted. "This way there will be no talent problem whatsoever." Which means that a.s soon as the big cities build 'em, the NBA figures that the game has become solid enough to fill 'em. Nor can you argue with the little man who has made the game big business.
