Sunday would have been the 102nd birthday of John Wooden.

At VIP's, his favorite coffee shop in Tarzana, the booth where he used to eat breakfast daily was set up for him, complete with a plate of two slices of bacon, eggs, a plate of muffins, orange juice, hot tea, a bottle of honey, a birthday cake and, most important, the Los Angeles Times Sports section.

Family members were expected to drop by later in the day.

Wooden died on June 4, 2010, at the age of 99.

UCLA will unveil a statue of its legendary basketball coach next week outside Pauley Pavilion.
