Leave it to a basketball head coach to spin a nasty fight in which his players were beaten up into a positive. Here's John Thompson III's take on Georgetown's brawl with China in an interview with Gary Parrish of CBS Sports.
"In a roundabout and undesired kind of way, the whole incident, the fight, really brought this group closer together quickly," Thompson said. "So big picture, it's not a bad thing at all."
This was entirely predictable. Anyway, Bomani Jones has the best joke in response to this.
