True Blue Golden Bear
Some guy named Ivan always called who was smart and Powe's AAU coach knew a lot about hoop. Dave Bull Tinkle (as someone on this board called him) was a sharp analyst as well. Wheeler was also very good. I quit listening to the Loonies show long ago but if Wheeler is on it then it at least has some redeeming quality.

Proven by the fact that Wheels applied for the head job at Davis about 2 weeks later.

Whether Braun and JT share a personality trait is up for debate, however, I think almost everyone would agree you have a successful coach who is totally secure and comfortable with himself and another guy who was insecure, a mediocre coach and a control freak. When you go up to JT and talk to him he's calm, looks you in the eye and will talk to you in a normal sincere manner. Ben was like a cat on a hot-tin roof;he changed the subject, looked at your tie or something other than the head region and had no idea or intention of conversing in a manner that would gain your confidence and/or respect.
