KANSAS MEDIA DAY
"WILT HAD SUCH A HIGH WAIST AND LONG LEGS. YOU COULD SEE THAT BETTER WHEN HE WAS SEATED. I WAS LYING ON THE FLOOR TO GET THIS SHOT."
DURING MY freshman year at Kansas (1951--52), I began traveling with the Jayhawks and sharing in all the team's activities. Coach Phog Allen (far left) was a brilliant motivator whose pregame speeches were epic—and always unpredictable. Allen led Kansas to three NCAA championship games, winning in '52 with a young Dean Smith (fifth from right) as a role player. When Wilt Chamberlain (above) arrived in Lawrence before the '55--56 season, I tried to think of ways to show his 7'1" frame graphically. I had him do a sequence of shots, including his signature finger roll, but the photos didn't convey how tall he was. At one point his shoelace came untied. He sat down in a folding chair to retie it, and I thought, Now that really shows how big he is.
