Bob Knight’s abrasive personality has alienated him from being able to coach or talk about college basketball on TV, but that didn’t stop him from taking a shot at college basketball sacred cow John Wooden in an interview with Joe Buck on his show Undeniable.
When asked about Wooden, Knight said he didn’t respect him for allowing mega booster Sam Gilbert to engage in dirty recruiting practices. Knight said he respected Wooden as a coach, but implies much of the Bruins’ success was based on cheating.
He may have a point about the booster, but at least Wooden didn’t choke out one his players. Bobby Knight, still bitter after all these years.
