Roy Williams F-Bombs Press Conference
Let them F-bombs fly, Roy
Update: Video of the press conference after the jump.
After beating NC State last night — 89-80 — the Tar Heels coach lost his decorum for a second and let everyone in the press room know what he thought about his team’s ability to execute full-court pressure correctly. After a “dad-gum” or two, Williams brought out the big guns — word-wise, anyway:
“We stink at [full-court pressing],” Williams said. “I’m not the brightest guy in the world, but I’m not going to continue playing full-court press, and every dad-gum time we do it, they lay it up and get a wide open shot.”
The reporter followed up by asking: “Why do you think they stink at it, as you say, especially considering the fact that there are a lot of veteran guys out there?”
Williams’ response was as follows: “If I knew the answer to that,” Williams said, “do you still think we’d be (expletive) stinking?”
Choice words for a coach who normally saves his Richard Pryor vocabulary for the golf courses.
Over at WRAL, they have the video of the momentous event. Unfortunately, WRAL hasn’t learned the beauty of embeddable video, so we had to settle on screenshot of the f-bomb in action. Of course, this isn’t the first time Williams used blue language to describe his emotions. Just ask Bonnie Bernstein.
To quote the immortal Too Short: “Cuss words, just let ‘em know. Motherf**kin’ sh*t, g** damn, a** hoe.”
