I saw the program and the participants for what is was = hype. I saw a gathering of programing that’s of little value with the messengers- but not the message.
I’m sure somewhere, some youngster is going to point to one or more of the programs “scripts” and say, “hey, that’s like coach so-n-so, I don’t like playing for him.” And there in is the potential for the message, not the messengers.
As far as John Wooden is concerned, if there was a program that sponsored John Wooden philosophy(s), there would have been one by now, but there isn’t. So, run with what’s out there, and this happens to be it.
In the final analysis, I saw past the critics’ of the hype and the overall staging of characters. I saw past the messengers - but I didn’t pass by on the message. In that regard, it’s a good message that, hopefully, will get at least someone to ask the right questions at the right time.
