Ever the salesman, Rick Pitino is always going to have nothing but rave reviews for his former pupils. With that said, it is hard not to sense a sincere enthusiasm and affection that he has for the young man. Steve Bulpett has an excellent interview with Pitino about his college days and his current situation (yet doesn't go into much detail on the 4 other NBA teams - plus China - that he's been on in the last 4 years).

If you listen to coach Rick, all Terrence needed was a few more hugs.
