Until he retired when I was almost 13, John Wooden was the “Wizzard of Westwood” to me. My father had me watching UCLA basketball from my earliest days.
During my teens and twenties, there were two legendary college basketball coaches, Dean Smith of the University of North Carolina and Bobby Knight of Indiana University. Dean Smith died earlier this year and it was recently learned that he left his former players a gift – $200 to each of them to be used for a dinner on him.
