More on the Legend that is John Wooden

We touched on this story as breaking news last night and now we find much, much more to say about the greatest college basketball and arguably the great basketball coach period...who ever lived.

As you know, John Wooden, 99 years old, 10-time NCAA Basketball National Champ and inspiration to just about anyone who has ever met him or read or studied his works and what he was about, passed away on Friday night

Over the course of the day, more and more of his teachings and philosophy's are being discussed. And they should be. He perhaps was the greatest teacher and proponent of basketball, business and life as a "Team" sport that ever lived.
