Pitino doesn’t know when the UK Legends will be on his court

alg_rick_pitino

By now I’m sure most of you are more than aware of the UK Legends game in the YUM! Center tomorrow night. If you didn’t know about it, please exit out of your browser and never come back. There’s really no reason why anyone in the entire state shouldn’t know about that game – and that includes you, Rick Pitino.

Upon returning from the Bahamas, Rick Pitino told Jeff Goodman that he had no idea when the UK Legends game was slated to be played in Louisville at the Yum! Center.

Really, Rick? You had no idea when John Calipari, your archnemisis, was moving over to your turf to coach a basketball game. I don’t care if Pitino has been out of the country riding jet skis all week – he knows about this game. C’mon, give me a break.

Do any of you believe Ricky Three Stacks on this one?

    Of course he didn’t know that UK were playing at the yum center tomorrow. The $3000 he gave me wasn’t for abortion!

    Well, the info on that just kind of dribbled down my pants leg. I’ve had a lot of trouble with that lately.

    Today being monday, this story reminds me of three words that I would say to Pitino: “Come on Man!”

    I do believe this photo shows Pitino has the same expression after 15 seconds of action on the court as well as off of it.

    5) he gave 3 thousand dollars to a certain extortionist for an abortion, i think.

    Off the topic, I really love playing for Calipari. If I had played for him in college I probably be in the NBA right now getting first round kind of money

    Well hell yeah he knows what going on. He tells everyone that he doesnt know what UK and Cal has going on so he can act like he’s too important and has a busy schedule to know whats happening around him. Dont u know thats why he had to pay someone to take his girlfriend to have their baby killed

    5 – to further expound on 12’s reference: A “stack” is what the youngen’s call a $1,000. Ricky Three Grand just doesn’t have the same ring to it.

    He’s been following my story on off track betting in the Himalayas….smaller story but I’m sure you heard of it.

    Does anyone even care what Pitino thinks anymore? Pitino has totally lost his credibility, everyone now knows he is a really bad liar, he has made himself look like a total idiot, and Charles Barkley made him look like an even bigger idiot. Pitino is irrelevant.

    Pitino has had so much cosmetics done on his face he looks like a mannequin.

    if his lips are moving the odds are better than even the sob is lying….putting a microphone in his face exponentially increases the chance you’re not getting the truth

    So we are all in agreement…that is Ricky’s Vinegar Strokes face.

    The real question that should be asked, how did you find a picture of his “O face” from Porcini’s?

    That is like saying you had no idea you were being raped by the person you hate most. Pitino is FOS.

    At least his tie can stay excited for more than 15 seconds!

    Pretty sure that’s a personalized Porcini’s menu in his interior jacket pocket.

    Not saying that he is lying about this, but has anyone ever known of coach Pitino lying about anything?

    Just like he didn’t know the baby was his

    Yeah Right. Pitino went off when he found out about the game. He reaction was not that the Yum is a public facility. He was furious about it.

    Now, folks we shouldn’t be too quick to judge. I mean, let’s be frank, apparently Rick Pitino knows less and less about basketball every year. Looking at his track record since leaving UK, he seems to have less of an idea about his team or his opponents. Therefore, it’s a very good probability that he didn’t have a clue about this game either.

    Then I wonder if ignorant Ricky knows that his good friend Denny Crum is coaching? Rupp had better give Denny a huge standing O tonight because we sure will tomorrow night in YUM. Be just like giving Ricky and Tommy Turtleneck the finger in their own house. Denny may have been a Card, but he was a class act.



  31. ELRStLouis
    4:37 pm August 15, 2011 Permalink

    I don’t believe him. He is totally trying to downplay this event to convince him that UK and the overwhelming power of BBN…and KSR readers 😉 are really not that overwhelming. This is really irking him but he just doesn’t want to admit it publicly. Reality check please!

    Pitino lies… Who knew? Cleveland Clinic?

    #7 Actually we are talking about our former coach, who has problems with the truth (how do you know RP is lying? his lips move) and keeping it in his pants.

    Regardless, thank you for allowing us to use your house tomorrow. You should go to the game, it will likely be the best basketball you ever see played there.

    Don’t taze me bro!
