Adidas has asked a federal judge to drop Rick Pitino’s lawsuit, arguing Pitino was well aware of the funny business happening in the recruitment of five-star guard Brian Bowen. Adidas says Pitino was â€œboth aware and supported” the pay-for-play scheme, which is why Pitino’s lawsuit against Adidas should be dismissed immediately.
Pitino has long maintained he had ZERO knowledge of any payment to the Bowen family in Bowen’s recruitment. Now with Adidas testifying Pitino was aware and supportive, he may finally be exposed for his involvement and blatant lying when asked about it.
Pitino is going to regret his lawsuit against Adidas, should more evidence come out that directly implicates him.
