But lets not be sad. Let this be a celebration to honor a man who contributed so much to the game we love.

A great man and a great coach. RIP

In his biography and from his interviews he states that he has never cussed a single time during his coaching career. That statement speaks for itself.

All the official reports just have him hospitalized in very bad shape. It doesn't look good, but I still want to see something official.

Not dead, that's just a tribute in case he dies. There's no confirmation anywhere (ESPN, Fox, etc).

John Wooden through the years
This gallery was incorrectly published with a headline saying that John Wooden had died. He is in the hospital, according to several published reports. A look at the legendary UCLA men's basketball coach.
