Integrity Quote of the Day


John Wooden

Basketball's Coaching Legend

John Wooden: When Wilt Chamberlain came to the Lakers, I was invited to the press conference announcing this. In the press conference, one member of the press asked Wilt, "Do you think that Bill van Breda Kolff can handle you?" Bill van Breda Kolff was the coach of the Lakers at the time. And Wilt said, "No one handles me. I am a person, not a thing. You handle things. You work with people. I think I can work with anyone." Just prior to this, my coaching book, Practical Modern Basketball, had been published, and I had a section in this book entitled, "Handling Your Players." I left this meeting, came home and took my book and marked out, crossed out, "handling your players," put "working with your players." And any place that I had alluded to handling your players, I changed. I called the publisher and wanted that correction made for any future editions.
