About that smear job of Coach Wooden & UCLA basketball

bruin8uclap spotted an article in esquire.com written by some guy named Sean Cunningham which did a total hit job on Coach John Wooden based on the tired smears related to Sam Gilbert.

We stripped out the link to that article because there is no reason for giving traffic to garbage. But what we can tell you is that the only evidence the article provided was to link to a piece written by Yahoo.com's Dan Wetzel from few years ago. We have already writted about that particular hack job and debunked it here, here, and here.

Also, Cunningham tried to discredit the 1995 championship without being able to offer a single piece of evidence that established that anyone from the 1995 team had committed an NCAA violation that season. It tried to debase that championship based on the mistakes Harrick made in 1996 recruiting season, for which UCLA fired him immediately.

So, basically it was a garbage piece that doesn't merit any attention via traffic from this community. I will leave it at that.

GO BRUINS.
