UCLA Fans Shouldn't Easily Forget What They Had
Watching the Hornets light up the Clippers in the 4th quarter of Monday’s 108-100 loss reminded me of something. UCLA’s run of back-to-back to back Final Four appearances from 2006-2008 was probably more impressive than most people realize, including Bruins fans.
Seeing Darren Collison guide the Hornets to their 13th straight win over the Clippers by scoring 18 points and dishing out 14 assists in 48 minutes of action took me back to the years when he ran the point for Ben Howland. Talk about his skills all you want, but Collison is a winner. Plain and simple. And you can say that about the other players who came through Westwood during that remarkable run. From Jordan Farmar and Arron Afflalo to Luc Richard Mbah a Moute and Alfred Aboya to Russell Westbrook and Kevin Love, they were all about putting up W’s, even in games in which they probably shouldn’t have.
