The great Mychal Thompson got me thinking here. He asked on Twitter yesterday the Mt. Rushmore of LA sports legends?
Great question, but why not the same for my home state of Oregon. Here are my 4, of course subject to lots of debate and corrections.
Danny Miles—- 44 years as MBB coach at Oregon Tech, 1,000 wins plus and 3 national titles , a complete joke he is not in Naismith Hall of Fame.
Mel Counts— Played in final four, won an Olympic Gold Medal and NBA Championship. Only a few have accomplished that. An Oregon State Beavers icon.
Brad Smith—- Greatest WBB Coach in state of Oregon ever. His impact on the game changed women’s basketball not only in the state, but nationally.
Jon Spoelstra— All you need to say is, Greatest Sports Marketer Ever. His genius rings around the world.
Now your turn please.
