I wonder what it would say about Coach Robinson's favorite all time basketball player. Who is his favorite player (college, pros)?

Coach Robinson is working in the midst of a great center of organic farming and eating, there in the WIllamette Valley of Oregon. Does he eat well and if so has this practice influenced his sister's interest in eating well?
