This mania also causes one to pause to reflect on some of the greatest coaches of all time. Coach John Wooden while at UCLA won ten NCAA national championships in a 12-year period — seven in a row.
That record is not likely to be challenged any time soon. In honor of Coach Wooden, here’s one of his brilliant quotes that didn’t just apply to basketball players but high integrity human beings as well:
“Talent is God-given. Be humble. Fame is man-given. Be grateful. Conceit is self-given. Be careful.”
-John Wooden (1910 – 2010) American basketball coach
