He's not passed, he's in the hospital currently. Hope him the best for sure.

Had me scared when I saw the original title, I've always dreamed of talking ball with him. Well, listening to him talk ball anyways.

The media should be more concerned with getting the news right, instead of first.

I've had the pleasure of corresponding with Coach Wooden over the years, and met the man once. As great a coach as he was, he's an even better person. An American legend.

God bless he and his family.

Wooden has passed away

http://www.insidehoops.com/blog/?p=6003

UCLA’s legendary former basketball coach John Wooden, who in 27 years led his teams to stunning triumphs and was just as well known for mentoring his players off the court and for his motivational “Pyramid of Success,” died at 6:45 p.m. of natural causes. He was 99. His 100th birthday would have been Oct. 14.

Wooden had been admitted to Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center on May 26. Funeral services will be private. Per the wishes of the family, there will be a public memorial at a later date, with a reception for former players and coaches.
