Dean Smith a deserving recipient of Presidential Medal of Freedom

If anybody would be fine with not being there to receive such an individual honor, it would be Dean Smith. As a basketball coach, he taught his teams to be unselfish on the court. As a private citizen, Smith was legendary for trying to avoid the limelight and always squirmed uncomfortably when others tried to publicly praise him. Selflessness is a core value to the Hall of Fame coach. (Sports Illustrated)
