    very sad news. the Minneapolis chapter of the lakers franchise often gets forgotten through the success they've had in LA but guys like kundla, mikan, and mikkelsen are lakers legends

    crazy to think that he outlived most of the players he coached

    Celebrate his life, it's not sad when you live to be 101, who wouldn't sign off on that right now? Great coach, probably forgot more about basketball then most will ever learn.
