WHO IS VINNY DEL NEGRO?

0

Thanks to valued reader Schmidty for this hilarious–and spot-on–analysis of who Vinny Del Negro is. This comes from ESPN’s “Sports Guy” mailbag.

Q: I’m watching the Bulls-Celts game — can I nominate Vinny Del Negro for a new Pantheon Face? It’s the Shooter from “Hoosiers,” “I can’t believe I haven’t had a drink for 12 hours, and I’m a head coach” face.
– Ryan, Weymouth, Mass.
SG: Done and done! I had been watching Vinny for two weeks, trying to figure out where I’d seen that glazed, slightly terrified, I-might-pee-my-pants look on the sidelines, and you’re right — it’s Shooter in “Hoosiers” right after Gene Hackman gets ejected and hands him the clipboard for the first time. Bingo. I demand we call him Vinny “Shooter” Del Negro from now on. The real shame is Derrick Rose has exceeded all expectations and looks like a potential franchise guy … and he’s being coached by “Shooter” instead of Mike D’Antoni. I can’t get over that.
