Shay Mitchell, the Canadian actress, once said, “I realized that bullying never has to do with you. It’s the bully who’s insecure.” Tom Hiddleston, the English actor, broke it down like this, “When people don’t like themselves very much, they have to make up for it. The classic bully was actually a victim first.” Then Andrew Vachss, the crime fiction author, broke it down like a playa at a pimp convention when he spit, “Fighting means you could lose. Bullying means you can’t. A bully wants to beat somebody; he doesn’t want to fight somebody.”
Well playas…another boy has come out and told the truth about ole dull bullyin’ Bobby Knight! Former Indiana Hoosier Todd Jadlow just released his personal memoir “Jadlow: On The Rebound” and in it the dun talks about his life as a member of the 1987 National Championship team as well as his personal struggles with drug and alcohol addiction, depression and ultimately goin’ to prison.
Now let’s keep it real or all the way 100, whichever comes 1st! The first of all, this cat said that he didn’t write the book to slam Bobby Knight but in order for ANYBODY to freakin’ care about the book he’d have to tell us about the foolishness of Bobby Knight. Let’s put that on the table off the rip bruh! Secondly, he’s not tellin’ any sane individual with knowledge of who Bobby Knight is anything that we didn’t already know. Everybody and their baby’s momma’s momma, Ms. Jackson, knows that Bobby Knight is a darn bullyin’ maniac. But I get that he had to tell a boy some episodes in order to sell the book.
So let’s talk about this foolishness. He says in the book that ole Bob once fired on him in the back of the head with a closed fist prior to the NCAA Tournament game against Seton Hall. He goes on to say that ole boy once grabbed him so tight that he had bruises on his side. And that durin’ a timeout he squeezed his groin! All incidents that occurred in 1989. What sane individual doesn’t believe that bruh?
This is same dun that picked up a chair and threw it across the floor durin’ an actual game in 1985!! This is the same cat in 1988, when I was a student at Indiana University, mind you, that said on national television while bein’ interviewed by Connie Chung, ”I think that if rape is inevitable, relax and enjoy it.”
Hold on a second dawg, this is the same cat that showed up at a post-game press conference in 1992 with a whip in his hand and told Calbert Chaney to bend over and the dun did it.
Stop right there bruh! If that were my son, first of all, I would have been on campus within’ minutes to jam my kid up for bein’ ignorant enough to allow a white man, especially with our history of slavery in this country, to pull a whip out on him and agree to bend over even if it was a joke. Then my boyz would already been at the police station waitin’ to bail me out for destroyin’ a basketball legend on camera.
Let’s proceed!! Isn’t this the same cat that was caught on tape chokin’ the mess out of Neil Reed in 1997? Also in April of 2000 the New York Post did a story on the release of then Raptors coach Butch Carter’s book that was set to be release that Christmas entitled “Born to Believe.” In this book authored by both Butch and his now Hall of Fame brother Cris ole boy accused Bobby Knight of callin’ one of his players, who was from Chicago, the N-word at practice in front of the entire team. Now the only dun on the team at the time from Chicago was Isaiah Thomas but both he and Knight adamantly denied the accusations. What the book specifically says that he said was, “Knight yelled at one of the players that he would end up like all the rest of the niggers in Chicago including your brothers.”
He also went on to write in the book that Knight “does not like educated, strong-willed blacks. I feel it would be fair to say that he does not like the fact that Cris and I are professionally successful.”
So why wouldn’t we understand that Bobby Knight was already a darn fool? Jadlow tried to be nice by sayin’ that in today’s standards that would be called abuse. Naw playboy, in 1989 it was called abuse but the hoop team and the administration was scared of him. I was a student at IU from 1987 to ’90 bruh and I knew all of the brothers on the team. What my friends and I always found interestin’ was that NOBODY on the team EVER said a mumblin’ word about Bobby Knight. Not a word!! Not a syllable!!!
Players always talk crazy about their coaches when the coach isn’t around especially in the comforts of their own dorm rooms but NOT the IU players.
It’s like the kid that you know is gettin’ worked over at the crib by his old man because you see the signs of his dad’s rage and you can hear him goin’ off and movin’ furniture around while you’re outside playin’. But when your boy finally comes outside to play he never says a word about his old man. Why? Because he’s afraid of him and loyal to him all at the same time. That was IU basketball bruh. Bobby Knight made sure that they all graduated and he helped them get jobs so nobody was gonna say a mumblin’ word about him.
By the way, didn’t that dun get fired from IU for puttin’ his hands on a student that wasn’t even on his team?
So why on earth would a some fake media-type from ESPN call Steve Alford and ask him if Bobby Knight was guilty of the foolishness that Todd Jadlow just accused him of? Alford’s texted reply was, “None of that ever happened while I was at IU — NONE.” Stop me when I start lyin’!
