It's a well-known fact that former basketball coach and current ESPN analyst Bob Knight is not a happy man. While he has a hidden sense of humor, it's his negative side that has made headlines. When he does interviews, Knight can be a bully, but in an interview on ESPN2's "Dan Le Batard is Highly Questionable," he tries to show a humorous side. Le Batard and his dad Gonzalo took a different approach with Knight and didn't ask him any basketball questions. Instead, the Le Batards asked Knight about his new book written with Bob Hammel, "The Power of Negative Thinking: An Unconventional Approach to Achieving Positive Results" and why he believes so much in negative thinking. Knight actually gives some thoughtful answers and how his grandmother began him on his path. One quote on what influenced him the most on negative thinking: "Well my mother was a school teacher and she was very demanding. In fact, I had her when I was in the second grade and it was the most worst year of education I ever had. If I got whacked at school, I got whacked at home, so it was not an easy life with your mother as a teacher." And at 4:15 of the video, Gonzalo asked Knight if he had a romantic side and what he did for his wife on Valentine's Day. Knight gives a roundabout answer, then gets on Dan Le Batard for not having children. What? This was a different interview with Knight that gave us a side we rarely of him and another unique clip from DLHQ, which has provided its share of entertaining moments. And it's probably one of the last times we'll see Knight on ESPN if the reports of his impending departure are to be believed. You shouldn't be anticipating ESPN using him to break down Mike Rice's firing.
