Bob Knight coached college basketball for almost half a century, and after all this time, he still doesn’t understand why there are two clocks above the backboard. Â Knight and Rece Davis had a brilliant exchange while reviewing the
incredibly awful controversial call to count Nerlens Noel’s basket late in the game when it appeared the shot clock had ran out before Noel got it off.
It went a little like this…
Knight: “The 17.3 was up there and the 0 was on the bottom. Â I don’t know what that meant.”
Davis: Â “Yeah, the 0 was the shot clock.”
Knight: “Well, what was the 17.3?”
Davis: “Game, game clock. Â What was remaining in the half.”
Deadspin has a clip of the exchange, although it lasted longer than what you’ll see there.
