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.
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.
