Historic North Carolina coach Dean Smith died this past week at the age of 83. Smith was credited with refining the skills and minds of some of the games best, including James Worthy and Michael Jordan. Jordan went as far as to refer to Smith as a “second father”. Smith leaves a lineage that is hard to mirror, but more importantly leaves a cavalcade of fond memories for those that knew him.
