Former Indiana University basketball coach Bob Knight is slated to speak at a Donald Trump rally Wednesday as the Hoosier state’s primary approaches.
While Knight is one of the winningest coaches, with a career total of 902 victories and three NCAA tournament championships, he was also known for his chair-throwing midgame tirades and outrageous remarks.
Trump is no slouch at that last part. So that made us wonder what kind of trash Trump could talk as a basketball coach. Maybe he could coach Trump University’s team. Which, of course, would win so many games that it would get bored with winning.
Former North Carolina coach Dean Smith: “He’s a legend because he had Michael Jordan. He retired as the most winning coach and then Bob crushed him because Bob knows about winning.”
Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski, who has five NCAA championships but has also lost twice in the first round of the NCAA tournament: “He says he’s the winningest coach. Please. Little Mikey used to be great. Now he just loses in the early rounds. Sad!”
Kentucky coach John Calipari, who is known for recruiting “one and done” athletes who leave after a year to go pro: “He had the chance to go undefeated last year and blew it. He can’t even keep a player more than a year. Total Loser.”
North Carolina coach Roy Williams, who has won two titles but has also faced questions about his players taking fake classes: “The system is rigged for coaches like ‘Cheating Roy’ and he still loses. He should have stayed in Kansas.”
