Bill Self discusses his upcoming Hall of Fame induction ceremony
A few days before Thursday's induction in the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame, Kansas basketball coach Bill Self discussed what it means to him and how he learned from his mentors, which includes Larry Brown, Leonard Hamilton and Eddie Sutton.
Brown will be Self's presenter for the Hall of Fame ceremony in Springfield, Mass. In 1985-86, Self was a graduate assistant to Brown at KU.
"It'll probably mean more to me after being there than it probably does now," Self said Tuesday. "I think that would be like, 'What does it mean to you to win a championship?' And it would probably mean a little bit different after you actually won it than going into it."
