Kansas basketball: Ex-Jayhawks star Ben McLemore honors coach Bill Self
“I think I've talked about this so much,” McLemore said. “I think everyone understands how much Coach Self means to me and throughout not just basketball but life, period. And he recruited me, a kid from St. Louis, Missouri … a kid that grew up in poverty and kind of a crazy background story and took me in and helped me not only in basketball, but in life. (He helped me) understand the game of basketball and understand the way life is. Coach Self means so much to me, and again, I'm so happy for him and what he has gone through and what he accomplished over his years at the University of Kansas. He's just amazing. He's the best of all time for me.”
