John Wooden 4th Among L.A.'s Greatest Sports Figures

The L.A. Times has been counting down a reader's poll the past few weeks, naming the greatest sports figures in Los Angeles history. 

Before today, the list already contained a number of Bruins, including #10 Jackie Robinson and #5 Kareem Abdul-Jabbar. We've been waiting and wondering to see where Coach John Wooden would land on the list. 

This morning Coach was revealed as #4 among the city's greatest sports legends. According to the blog post, he received 251 first place votes, but was astonishingly left off a number of ballots altogether. No matter. Coach's legend and legacy is secure forever, this small honor represents just another recognition of the impact he had on this city and our school.

I am curious to know who the top three on the list will be. The best guess is Magic Johnson, Vin Scully and Sandy Koufax. All in all, great company to be in.
