MDO - Hall of famers reflect on bygone era - 05/14/1998 (966 words)
Kundla, Mikkelsen and the Lakers flourished in the days of the two-handed set shot, the under-handed free throw and finesse -- before the 24-second shot clock, the three-pointer and 300-pound centers came to dominate the game.
Kundla was among the first coaches to design plays, a strategy that earned the Lakers' coach some ridicule around the league.
Kundla retired from the Lakers in 1959, a season before they headed west, and returned to the University, where he spent nine seasons as the men's basketball coach.
