Bobby Knight pulls a “Sucka Move” tryin’ to hate on a dead John Wooden! “Coward”

On Wednesday the legendary Bobby Knight once again proved that he was the ultimate hater. While appearin’ on the upcomin’ edition of “Undeniable” with Joe Buck the dun blasted John Wooden for figurin’ out how to win more national championships than any other college coach in history. Ole boy had this to say about the most accomplished college basketball coach of all-time.

“I’ve never been a Wooden fan. I have a lot of respect for Wooden as a coach, how he coached, he was a good coach, but from then on, and I don’t mind saying it, I don’t respect Wooden, because he allowed Sam Gilbert to do whatever it took to recruit kids.”

Then the dun jumped all the way out of the playa haters birthday cake butt naked foamin’ at the mouth with this foolishness. “And one time he told me, ‘I just didn’t know how to deal with Sam Gilbert.’ And I’m saying to myself, ‘I damn sure could have dealt with him.’ Personally, I liked John, as a person, but it isn’t just John, it’s a whole UCLA approach to recruiting.” 

Let’s keep it real or all the way 100, whichever comes 1st! There’s always goin’ to be haters bruh. That comes with the territory of bein’ successful. I’ve always lived with the motto, “If fifty percent of the duns in the room aren’t hatin’ on you. Then you need to step your game up.” 

My problem isn’t with the fact that Bob Knight is talkin’ reckless and sideways about John Wooden. It’s the fact that the dun is talkin’ reckless and sideways about him after he’s dead and gone. Ole boy lived to be darn near 100 years old bruh!!! He was 99 when he passed away!! Like 4 months shy of a century old!!

That means that Bobby Knight had plenty of time to hate on him publicly where John Wooden could defend himself  and he didn’t. That’s called bein’ a coward in the suburbs and where I’m from it’s called pullin’ a punk move. And that’s the edited version.

Let me put it where the goats can get it. Everybody and their baby’s momma that’s coachin’ at that level is doin’ whatever they’ve got to do to win games. There isn’t a program in America that’s 100 percent innocent of foolishness in the recruitment process. Even if the institution itself is clean there are always goin’ to be “hangers around,” boosters and alumni that will violate the rules some kind of way to get players to come and stay.

I went to IU when Bobby Knight was the head coach and there were rules bein’ broken all of the time. Players were receivin’ benefits that they shouldn’t have been gettin’ even when the school had nothin’ to do with it. However, the rules are the rules and if they had been exposed the university would have paid the price in NCAA sanctions like everybody else that’s ever been jammed up. Why? Because it is what it is.

But for Knight to pull that type of stunt simply tells you who he really is. To blast a dead man after the fact is a straight up sucker move and it’s par for the course for Bobby Knight. Stop me when I start lyin’!

Playas Thesaurus: 

1) Dun: noun – the person in question, dude, guy, etc. It’s whoever I’m talkin’ about and its non-gender specific.

2) Put it where the goats can get it: verb phrase – to make it as elementary as possible. To put it at ground level so everyone can understand it.

The G is excluded from the endings of all words because the G is near and dear to my heart because I’m from “The G” which is Gary, Indiana. So I only use the G when I’m talkin’ about “The G!”
