During the Indiana/Georgia game last night (in which Indiana slightly better than that piece of gum Tom Crean ate off the floor), Bobby Knight had a whole batch of old man things to say. First, Knight criticized Georgia for taking so many threes with a classic Knight line: “I’m not sure there’s anything I like less in basketball than one pass and a 3-point shot.”
Whatever, just Bobby being Bobby, right?
What Knight said next really turned heads. After Georgia’s 6’8″ 230 lbs. forward Nemanja Djurisic attempted another bad three, Knight said:
“The next time I saw Djuricic taking a three I think I would’ve shot him before he got the shot off.”
From anyone else, that comment wouldn’t raise an eyebrow. From Bobby…well, if I were Djurisic, I’d be watching my back at the next practice.
