Here's a story: a group of women are fighting in a Southern California casino. Hair is being pulled; furniture is being displaced; extensions are being yanked. Security is nowhere in sight?
Who you gonna call? Tim Floyd! (If you yell it, it almost sounds like you're saying "Ghostbusters." Try it.)
Yes, straight from the "I Wonder What He's Doing These Days" file comes former Bulls and USC coach Tim Floyd, who stepped in the middle of a catfight at the Morongo Casino last week. Fortunately, someone had a camera rolling:
And there he is! That is most definitely Tim Floyd. And that is most definitely more managerial prowess than Floyd ever displayed as coach of the Bulls, where he posted a record of 49-190 in four seasons. It's also more ethical behavior than Floyd demonstrated in his most recent job at USC, where he resigned in the midst of an ongoing recruiting scandal.
For his troubles, Floyd almost gets a chair to the back of the head. That disaster is averted, the various females are calmed down, and Floyd goes back to whatever he was doing at a Southern California casino in the first place: presumably, gambling Bulls fans' season ticket money away. Enjoy it, Tim. For at least one day, you deserved it.
