Bracing Himself - Cedric Bozeman

It was the defining moment of this impressive comeback season for Cedric Bozeman. It wasn't a basket-rattling dunk and or a game-altering three-pointer or a crowd-cheering pass

In fact, there was no crowd around. Just UCLA Coach Ben Howland and Bozeman. The coach simply told his player to take off the brace on his right knee before heading onto the court for practice.

And that was the moment.

With that simple act, Bozeman freed himself from a season of agony and frustration, freed himself to again cruise down the court, fight through screens and attack the basket with his old abandon. L.A. Times
