--Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, on John Wooden
My son is just over five months old. I hope one day he might say something similar about me. Or even that he knew I tried.
There are, as you might expect, some very moving stories of and tributes to Coach Wooden appearing across the web tonight:
-William Nack, ESPN.com
-Jon Weisman, DodgerThoughts
-T.J. Simers, LA Times
-Bill Plaschke, LA Times
-Eric Neel, ESPN.com (from 2005)
-Kareem, speaking at a plaque dedication ceremony for Wooden in 2008
Here's a great one, too, from legendary Times columnist Jim Murray, originally appearing August 10, 1972.
