    I feel the same way. No one can be in front on Dean Smith. I admire what he did to change this game more than any other. Coach K is my favorite today. I respect greatness. But. Dean Smith is, and will be my all-time favorite coach in any Sport.

    A reporter asked Roy about Dean during today's presser, and Roy spoke so fondly and respectfully about Dean. Then, he just couldn't say anymore; it was too upsetting for him. This is so sad, and I dread the day when Dean passes.

    It is really tough for all those around him. The great coaches remember essentially every play... View More

    unc70. I have always respected how you write on here. You know how to keep it real, especially in regard to involving people at UNC. I met Coach Smith after a football game up there, and we shook hands and talked a little. He and his wife were as down to earth as any you would meet. (Derrick Fenner ran for a bunch that day.) It will be a sad day when the Dean leaves all of us fans.

    My wife is going through this with her mother. We have been together for almost 24 years. So, I have seen this coming on for a while. I wouldn't want this to happen to anyone. God Bless Dean, his family, friends and UNC fans. I am sure this must be very hard for the Uiversity and anyone he dealt with all those years. He is, and will always be an ICON.
    Rivalries are fun (this is the best one of all time) and we all rag each other.
    But, in God's eyes we are all his children. And when things like this happen we are all the same. Sad...very sad. :(

    Agreed, Ligg. Dean is a one-in-a-million man, and Coach. We're lucky we got to see him coaching the sport he loved.

    Amazing what Dean could do during his time though. His teams always played together without superstars. His teams always looked like well oiled basketball machines.

    Best wishes to Dean as he continues his battle.

    Thanks jgunn...my folks are fortunate to have a pretty solid support system around them, which is huge. A lot of people are far worse off, you just have to keep things in perspective and do the best you can.

    Kato - great Dean story!
