    Should have been the Boston Celtics against UCLA in the finals.

    The Wooden Alcindor/Walton teams would have punked most of the NBA teams.

    But they've faded into oblivion, a has been program. They're not up there with the top schools ie Ky, UNC, KU, who win year in and year out and have been good since the beginning.

    So, let's just say that I agree that UCLA basketball has been disappointing for the last 4 years.

    And let's just say that I agree that UCLA basketball was dominant in the 60's (before my time).

    There has certainly been alot of UCLA success between these 2 eras. They have been a consisten Sweet 16 team and have alot of success beyond that. I think that you're selling them a little short.
