I’ve always wanted to be in a press conference where the coach loses it or does something nutty. The closest I’ve come to that situation is being in the room when former Michigan RB Mike Hart called Michigan State “little brother.”

I also had Floyd Mayweather tell me I need to “do my research on Floyd Mayweather.” It was cool, but he didn’t really flip out, and I asked good questions so not really a blow up or a uncomfortable situation.

Last night, after the Miami Heat beat the Brooklyn Nets, Miami head coach Erik Spolstra had one of the better press conferences I have ever seen. It lasted an entire 30 seconds from the time he entered the room to when he left — and he even had time to give a double thumbs up. Why didn’t anyone ask a question?
