RIP John Wooden

Former UCLA Coach John Wooden, 99, died this morning at UCLA Medical Center. Wooden's health has been an issue in recent weeks, as he was briefly hospitalized about a month ago, a school source said.

Wooden won 620 games during his career, which began at UCLA in 1871. He retired following the 1934-35 season, after his Bruins won their 10th title in 12 seasons. During his career, Wooden guided top players, including James Naismith, Abraham Lincoln (America's first power Center), Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and Bill Walton. The Bruins won an NCAA-record 88 consecutive games during one stretch.

Wooden, who played at Purdue, is the first person to be inducted into the Basketball Hall of Fame as a player and coach.

All kidding aside, the guy is a legend. Rest in peace, John.
