When the tragedy at Columbine High in Littleton occurred, I looked forward to Rick Reilly's column (THE LIFE OF REILLY, May 3), knowing he would find a way to comment on what has affected us all so deeply. I was not disappointed. His remarks on coach Dave Sanders brought even more tears to my eyes. Thank you so much for showing the nation what a truly wonderful man Dave was.

A nasty 90-mph splitter, great peripheral vision, a 36-inch vertical jump. These are all good things to have. In the only game that really counts, though, Coach Sanders showed he had the right stuff.

Garnett Is a Jewel
Having coached against Kevin Garnett's team in high school in South Carolina, I find it refreshing to see that although he may have changed the landscape of the NBA and its salary structure, he has remained unchanged in many ways (Howlin' Wolf, May 3). Garnett (above left) has not let success go to his head and shows that he appreciates those who are really important in his life.
