What Brad Stevens Might Have In Common With Tim Floyd

With the shocking news (to some) that Brad Stevens left Butler to coach the Boston Celtics, it reminded me of former USC coach Tim Floyd telling me how he left Iowa State for the Chicago Bulls.

Floyd’s move surprised some because the Bulls’ roster had been gutted by retirements or departures, similar to the current Celtics. Floyd had also been the first Iowa State coach to win 20-or-more gamess three straight years.

“I was going to make in four years with the Bulls what I would make in 10 with Iowa State,” he said.

As the saying goes, money talks.

    And to think…. today is Independence Day…..our forefathers fought for many things, which we all still enjoy in this country today, including our freedom of speech as protected by the First Amendment to the US Constitution …..and this is how Bucket chooses to exercise his constitutional right……. we’re all so very proud of you Bucket……if it weren’t for people like you, someone such as Thai-Mex could be considered to be offensive…..
