THE WIZARD OF WESTWOOD: All that needs be said about the late John Wooden is that America has never seen a better coach in any sport. Ten national championships in twenty-seven years of coaching at UCLA, including six straight -- and an eighty-eight game winning streak which has never been approached in men's college basketball. “Success is peace of mind," Wooden wrote, "Which is a direct result of self-satisfaction in knowing you did your best to become the best you are capable of becoming.”
Wooden built the Pyramid of Success, and assuredly sits at its apex. He was 99.
