Rick Pitino Lashes Out At The Media
Rick Pitino gets testy and holds a press conference to show the reporters that he’s upset with all the articles coming out about him. In his words, it’s time to get on with more important issues in the world like the economy, healthcare and….basketball!
I’ve never heard a coach draw upon so many current events in order to absolve himself from any responsibilities. Pitino says in a time when Ted Kennedy has died, why are all the attention focused on him. Even though he denies raping the woman, he should have said something along the lines of him making a mistake. But it appears that all he did was to exacerbate the situation by saying he understands the economy’s bad and the press needs to make money.
When asked whether this has affected recuriting at Louisville, Pitino says not at all. In fact it probably made recruiting easier now that players know that the coach knows how to “get down”. Didn’t Pitino learn anything from the Kobe Bryant rape. Just keep on denying you raped her and buy your wife that 4 million dollar ring.
