For all who love John Wooden - and there are a lot - here’s the tribute video I edited after his passing:http://youtu.be/qC4Cm_k4AmgA person to be treasured for all time.
The American Mr. Chips.
Great coaches are great teachers and mold players into good people and citizens of their community and country. JW was the greatest coach of all time.
I guess, 3% (451 / 15,000) of the people visiting YouTube are really mentally ill and there is no way of pleasing them at all.How can anyone give this terrific video a thumbs down???
This speech is an injustice. 17m to summarise all the values this man has followed and the experiences from his lifetime. So humble :)
Thank you Mr Wooden Sir.
The best ever by defying EVERY SINGLE coaching and teaching strategy. Instead, respect, values, and discipline through an example that never waivers.The best leader of young men who ever lived makes it embarrassingly simple, yet impossible to replicate, bc no coach or man before or since has been anything close to genuine. He is the greatest ever.
So, that's how you ruin a generation... give 'em corrupt, degenerate, ignorant yet arrogant teachers. it won't matter what you teach the kids.

“If you make the effort to do the best of which you’re capable; trying to improve the situation that exists for you...that’s success...”. - John Wooden
Great teacher .
I wish he’d been my coach or teacher
How hard is it to succeed in a conference that had no other good teams for decades andwas in California and the players were paid to come there by Sam Gilbert? I could have coached those teams and won just as much as Wooden. Wooden was overrated but since he was an old man he getss all this love. Bob Knight, as big a jerk as he was, did a more impressive job considering the much lesser talent and playing in a MUCH better basketball conference
Coming back here from the google ad 💯🏀👏
Who’s where from the google add
Always feel worse for the losers than happy for the winners.
Coach Wooden used to come to Campbell College basketball camp, IN Buies Creek NC, in the early 70's. I believe that he was looking for recruits in the tobacco road locations to look for exceptional players in the area where UNC, NC State, and eventually Duke players evolved. I actually was there and enjoyed the last day of the camp where Pete Maravich would come in to give a demonstration and make a few half court shots. Coach Wooden actually said to me during a exercise that " Son, you need to work with your left hand more"...….I'll take that to my grave as advice from a legend...
Rest In PeaceJohn Robert Wooden1910-2010
I have been a UCLA BASKETBALL FAN sicne I was 10 YEARS OLD and am STILL one. COACH JOHN ' THE WIZARD OF WESTWOOD ' no t only had some of the GREATEST PLAYERS to PLAY for him ,he had GREST PHILOSOPHICAL though in LIFE as well .Most unless PLAYED SPORTS at that LEVEL even HIGN SCHOOL do not UNDERSTAND how IMPORTANT to have GOOD INDIVIDUALS in these POSITIONS in LIFE . For not responding nnly are they TEACHERS of a GAME there are the SHAPERS and MOLDERS of the YOUNG MEN and WOMEN whom PLAY for them as MEN and WOMEN in LIFE . There are GUYS I know whom PLAYED only in HIGN SCHOOL but the COACHES they had they RESPECTED all their LIVES . Some where even MORE RESPECTED they MOM and DADDY . He was a GREAT INNOVATOR on the GAME he COACHED PLUS a PRETTY DAMN GOOD PLAYER .He's in the NCAA HALL FAME TWICE as a PLAYER at INDIANA and as a COACH at UCLA .His BOOK about his LIFE hthe as TITTLE at PAULEY PAVILION is GREAT READINGS and has FOOD for THOUGHT about LIFE itself one of the BETTER ONES I had READ.
Even at an “advanced” age this man was quick and sharp. He rattled off wisdom at light speed.
Habla hijo cuenta la verdad de tu fraude CON trump
Many of todays coaches say that they looked up to him. I guess they meant according to wins, not values.
love is simple... achieve is the key perhaps
This man had a profound message and measure of wisdom that went deep into immutable principles. No wonder he coached so many successful players (that I can account for)
A total effort is a complete victory
but can you play where they put the pipi on the can ?
We ALL must pay Homage .
Why can't we have a president like him?
I'm thinking the same thing.
Always a gentleman and encourager. I must strive for that more often. Thanks for the reminder, Coach Wooden.
John Wooden was a great, great man.
I just love and respect this guy. He's truly an inspiration and annointed to coach and lead others into winning. I literally cried from just listening to him talk. God bless him.
Sir because succeeding comes from winning !??
The unfortunate task today in AMERIKKKA is for experienced, educated, wise and dedicated servants that attempt to introduce and impart impactful knowledge on confused social misfits masquerading as free, modern-day , independent thinkers who regularly reject and disrespect historical truths due to systematic exploitation and indoctrination of the Oppressor and Willie Lynch Syndrome. Habits are not conducive with changing of the mindset today in society. Ignorance is an acceptable practice and excuse for uneducated and misguided plantation modern-day Slaves in AMERIKKKA and globally. The Word of Yahweh is entirely devalued due to an underlying emphasis on the accumulation of devalued Dead Presidents. Present day Adults are failing the younger generation in record numbers due to negative decision making. Morals and values are not being taught consistently in the Church and households today. Elders are disrespected and rejected by stubborn and confused modern-day misfits who adhere to ideologies that espouse and contribute to self-destructive attitudes and behaviors. Unfortunately, the demise of human existence is occurring more rapidly globally. Yahweh return is inevitable and no one will escape his judgment. Father, have mercy on our wretched and deranged souls.
