Louisville’s Trey Lewis and Damion Lee are at ACC Media Day today (sans Rick Pitino) and I don’t envy them for the onslaught of ‘alleged’ prostitution scandal questions they will face. Poor guys. It’s not their fault the players before them enjoyed the company, and occasionally the warmth, of a scantily clad lady for a small fee and a couple of autographs.
But taking precedence over the question-ducking from today’s media breakout is a quote from Lewis you will not believe.
Well, on second thought, you probably will believe it, because nothing is unbelievable from Rick Pitino anymore.
Here we go…
When Trey Lewis was about his first season in the Louisville program, he told reporters, “Coach Pitino says this is the best team he’s coached in 40 years. You guys don’t see how we battle everyday.” [@kmattio]
The best team he’s coached in 40 years?!
Rick finally lost it. He gone. Rick’s been known to make outrageous statements in the past, but this one takes the mentally-ill cake.
No way his current team is better than his title team of 2012-13 and it’s definitely not better than his 1995-96 Kentucky Wildcats. Highly unlikely it’s better than any of his Boston Celtics teams, too.
This is the most Rick Pitino quote of all time.
