Sid Tenenbaum, the erratic All-
American basketball player has
finally come to a decision concern
ing his future pro hoop activities.
After starting the season with
Minneapolis and serving briefly
with Jersey City and Brooklyn,
NYU’s former great player has
joined the New Tork Knicker
bockers.
When Minneapolis tired of
■dickering with him concerning his
playing in Minneapolis in the Nat
ional League, Owner Max Winter
came to New York and arranged
for the sale of Tenenbaum to Ned
Irish’s ball club. It was known
that Minneapolis was demanding
510,000 for Sid’s contract, but in
all probability settled for a sum
■closer to $7,500. Tanenbaum sign
ed a New York contract calling
for something in the vicinity of
55,000, considerably less than SB,-
500.00, which Minneapolis was
willing to pay him.
As we have stated repeatedly in
Ms column, Tanenbaum is just
about the finest playmaker in the
fame today. That is if he wants
P ,a y- He really can change the
Knickerbockers from an in and
eut club to a strong contender for
A* A. A. top team recognition.
The Knicks have been floundering
of late and without Tanen
haum would end up far to the rear
«f the four strong western quintets
"*the loop. The Lapchlck-coached
*** Kas good height and shot
takers, but is sadly lacking in
floor direction and playmak
***• Tanenbaum will supply the
•nssing qualities.

• end. Much as we predicted in a
; pre-season column the flashy,
eagle-eyed shooting star from
, Long Island University found his
i lack of height an insurmountable
• barrier. One of the better paid
, stars in the National League,
i Jackie was cut adrift when it be
, came apparent that his phenom
enal set shooting did not hold up
once his club went into action.
Because of his diminutive size
Goldsmith found himself at a dis
, advantage on defense. His man
would automatically take him into
the pivot spot from where he could
dunk hook shots over little Jackie’s
outstretched hands.
Goldsmith was back in New
York in time to watch his Alma
Mater, L. I. U. take a drubbing
from St. Louis University. Jackie
is trying to catch on with either
Baltimore or Providence in the B.
A. A. loop. I am afraid he will
find his size an insurmountable
handicap in this league, too. Wat
Maska, tiny court wizard from the
University of Utah, a much better
defensive player than Goldsmith,
was dropped by the Knickerbock
ers because the tall men on oppo
sition teams automatically took
him into the pivot position from
where they wreaked havoc on the
Knicks with a bombardment of
hook shots.
Goldsmith will find that his best
bet in pro basketball will be a
berth with one of the American
League teams. There is still room
for the small fellows in this old
pro loop. Red Klotz of the Phila
delphia Sphas is one of the small
est men playing the money game
and he does a workmanlike job
for the Hebrews.
More people are maimed by
broken homes than by all our
accidents and wars.
