Get Well, Coop

July 22, 2014

A heartfelt get well to former Los Angeles Lakers’ great Michael Cooper, who has been diagnosed to be in the early stages of having tongue cancer.

“Coop,” as he is affectionately known, has taken a leave of absence as coach of the WNBA East leading Atlanta Dream.

Though we have not talked recently, I consider Michael a friend, who always listened to and encouraged me.

He not only was a great player, who should be in the Basketball Hall of Fame, but an incredibly funny and warm person.

I have great memories of him, especially a wide ranging interview he gave to me for my TV show. He was also very cooperative with a young reporter named Angela/Andrea way back in 1988, and our friendship still exists to this day.

Cooper was both funny and revealing in our interview. It is a cherished memory and I know there are more to come. Again, get well “Coop!”
