Rick knew basketball; Lee knows writing. Another great piece from Lee about a coach I still don't understand why he departed. I just never really thought much about it. It just happened. Life goes on! It's tough to chase your own shadow,I guess, of which Rick's was getting mighty long. Thanks, Lee.

Attention local sports writers: please study Lee's column.

It's an example of how to craft a respectful, insightful--yet still fair--assessment of a complicated public figure. Contrast it with the cringeworthy, self-serving attempts that appeared in both the Tribune and here immediately after the coach's passing. Study and learn from the differences.

Thank you.
