    John Wooden personified class as a coach and a human being. Although I rooted against the Bruins with a passion in those days, looking back it was incredible what Wooden did with superstar centers and the role players that surrounded them. RIP to a class act.

    One of my favorites...

    And, I absolutely love this one...

    That one goes along with "Character is doing the right thing when no one is looking."

    RIP to one of the good guys.
