Rick Pitino’s return to the basketball court as a player has been highly publicized, to say the least. To be honest, I’m blow away at how entertained I am by watching Coach Pitino play hoops.
Earlier this week we saw highlights from his debut performance in the Coral Springs Gymnasium that featured Pitino draining three pointers, telling his teammates to clear out so he can go to work and also drawing double-teams in the post.
On Thursday we got to see Coach P throw an absolute dime. After catching the ball in the high-post, Pitino hit No. 10 with a no look back-door pass for the bucket.
Pitino also scored nine points in the game, which was his Redbirds team’s first win at the Masters League.
Never stop ballin’, Rick.
