John Wooden is simply the most successful basketball coach in the history of the sport. In his 40 years as a head coach, Wooden compiled an unparalleled 885-203 overall career win-loss record (.813). Wooden's UCLA teams registered 620 wins and only 147 losses, won a record 10 NCAA championships, and achieved one of the most amazing winning streaks in all of sports with 38 straight NCAA tournament victories. His Bruin teams also set the all-time NCAA record by winning 88 straight games over four seasons, including consecutive 30-0 seasons in 1971-72 and 1972-73.

As a high school basketball player at Martinsville, Indiana, Wooden won all-state honors three consecutive years. At Purdue University, he won letters in basketball and baseball his freshman year and later earned All-American honors as a guard on the basketball team from 1930 to 1932. He captained Purdue's basketball teams of 1931 and 1932 and led the Boilermakers to two Big Ten titles and the 1932 national championship.

Wooden was the first person to be inducted into the National Basketball Hall of Fame as both a player and coach. In 1999, ESPN named Wooden the Greatest Basketball Coach of All Time. He was also named The Sporting News Sports Man of the Year in 1970 and Sports Illustrated Sports Man of the year in 1973.

Swen Nater was a UCLA player under Wooden and the first and only college player in history to be drafted in the first round of the NBA draft without ever having started a college game. Despite this fact, Nater went on to a 12-year professional career spanning three leagues: the American Basketball Association (ABA), National Basketball Association (NBA), and Italian League. He was the ABA Rookie of the Year, and he is the only player in the history of professional basketball to lead all three leagues in rebounding.

After his playing career, Nater served as athletic director for 9 years at Christian Heritage College, where he also coached the basketball team to a national title. Currently, Nater is an assistant sporting goods buyer for Costco Wholesale, and he resides in the small town of Enumclaw, Washington, with his wife, Marlene.

John Wooden lived in Encino, in the state of California. John Wooden was born in 1910 and died in 2010.
