Getting old isn’t easy, and college basketball coaching legend Bob Knight gave us a small reminder of that during Thursday night’s game between Kentucky and Vanderbilt. With roughly 18 seconds remaining in the game and Kentucky up by three, Nerlens Noel converted a crucial floater to give the Wildcats a two-possession lead. However, replay showed that Noel did not get the shot out of his hand in time before the shot clock expired. This greatly confused the 72-year-old Knight. “I think that was a different zero they had out there,” Knight said. “This said 17.3 and now it says 7.6. That 17.3 was up there and the zero was on the bottom. I don’t know what that meant.” Fellow ESPN broadcaster Rece Davis then kindly explained to his colleague that the zero was what we call the “shot clock” and the 17.3 was what we call the “game clock.” Knight eventually seemed to grasp that the argument was over whether or not Noel got the shot up before the shot clock expired, not the game clock. Now Bob, were we drinking beer or falling asleep again during the broadcast?
