Coach Pitino brought Gorgui and Russ with him to the post game presser, after last night's game. The result was a 24 minute mix of solid gold hilarious, adorable, and inspirational moments from all three.
My favorite Russ quote came as he was explaining to the media that he always tries to bring whatever is needed for the team to get a win; whether that thing be defensive intensity, scoring, giving Peyton a breather or, slowing down the tempo,....... wait, what? My favorite Pitino moment came as he revealed that Russ told him he missed the dunk because he put Vaseline on his hands before the game; and Gorgui, well,... he was his usual Gorgui self.
