    In 1987, the New York Knicks hired a hotshot college coach who had just led Providence to the Final Four. The new coach was smart, energetic and extremely promising. In his first year, he led the Knicks to a 38-44 finish. Although that record wasn’t great, it sure beat the 24, 23 and 24 games…

    Chattanooga v Louisville

    We can say that this fits the PBT format because Rick Pitino once coached professionals (you can insert your Louisville basketball jokes here), or that the Puerto Rican national team features NBA players such as J.J.

    Amar’e Stoudemire went Rick Pitino yesterday. He told his team that Carmelo Anthony is not walking through that door. Chris Paul is not walking through that door.
