Sampson ducks IU questions, praises Crean

  • 05/20/2008 7:27 am in

Kelvin Sampson was introduced by the Milwaukee Bucks yesterday as an assistant coach and as expected, he refused to answer any questions about what went down at IU. He did, however, offer his thoughts on Tom Crean, who also happens to be his close friend:

“Tom will do great. He’s an outstanding person, excellent coach. I think it’s a great fit. Tom would do well anywhere, though. He’s just really good at what he does, he’s very conscientious, will get kids to compete and play.”

Here is the entire Sampson presser, courtesy of the Milwaukee Bucks:

    Of course he ducked questions! The guy has cat-like reflexes when it comes to tough questions. Kudos to him for speaking highly about Coach Crean but, that is where the praise stops. He is an asshat and I hope he rots in Milwaukee!

  • we get our coach from milwaukee…..send our old coach to milwauke….with an IU coaching candidate as head coach….to a team that will most likely draft eric gordon….this has been kind of fun
