Rick Pitino’s book is set to release next week, and a few big media members are already getting advanced copies.
ESPN’s Dick Vitale and Jay Bilas received and read the book, and both hinted that it’s going to rock the college basketball world.
To no one’s surprise, Vitale is defending Pitino again, saying “naysayers” will change their minds on the situation after reading the book.

Bilas said the book is “gripping” and “compelling,” saying it sheds light on the NCAA/FBI situations, his coaching career, and more.
Just finished reading an advance copy of Rick Pitino’s new book “Pitino: My Story.” What a compelling book. From the NCAA to the FBI to a detailed history of how the money influence has changed the game, like him or not, Pitino’s book is gripping stuff. pic.twitter.com/FsIk1goQM3

The tell-all book where Pitino says he will “lay all his cards on the table” is set to release on September 4. And it just might be worthy of a KSR dramatic live reading.
Get your popcorn ready, BBN.
