Two Lost Legends

Basketball has lost two legends recently, Wilt Chamberlain of course, a fabulously
complicated man
, (don't miss this
Lenox Rawlings article
) and John McLendon, the legendary coach. Here's
another article about his contributions, including mention of
how and where he showed Dean Smith the four corners,
which Dean supposedly
came up with in practice one day accidentally when the other players had spread
the court and Larry Brown drove to the basket (according to Barry Jacobs' Dean
book).
