He was known to have a temper. That’s how he motivated his kids.

Basketball was a game to many but it was his life.

Indiana high school players dreamed of playing for him.

But there are officials in basketball that determine right and wrong moves that any player can make. These rules are to be followed or you get penalized.

Bobby hated to get penalized. It made him mad. This time it made him so mad he picked up the folding chair beside him and tossed it across the floor. Across the floor and into the swamp beside the court.

  1. I understand this takes place outside the building, that he was put out due to his temper. Always sad when a person can’t control themselves. It’s especially bad when you work with kids. Well done, Danny. — Suzanne

  2. You’re talking about Bobby Knight, who was famous for his temper. Did this actually happen? I guess so, and probably a lot worse!

  3. The thought of motivating your children with your temper seems a recipe for disaster.

  6. I thought it was interesting there was a swamp next to the court. I thought it could be a little boy playing a game in his imagination.

  7. I’m guessing that will get him thrown off the court or put in the sin bin or whatever happens in basketball!
