And this


"He's [K] generally regarded as the greatest men's college basketball coach in history."

No. Though in different eras, John Wooden is the greatest college basketball coach in history. One could argue if Wooden had coached in the 80's, 90's and 21st century, he would not have had the record K had. But he didn't. And 10 out of 12 national titles cannot be dismissed (and probably will never be matched.)

There are a lot of things I don't like about K and the hero worship he engenders from the basketball world: his gamesmanship, his sanctimony, his hypocrisy and his near insufferable ego But his record and successes speak for themselves and he is the greatest of his era/generation.
