If Rick Pitino wants to get back to coaching basketball, he has his opportunity. According to long-time NBA reporter Marc Stein, Rick Pitino has an offer on the table from the New Zealand Breakers of Australia's National Basketball League. The Breakers recently took on new U.S.-based ownership, and there is serious interest in Pitino as the organization's head coach. https://twitter.com/TheSteinLine/status/979765303264473089 The Breakers' new American ownership includes our dear friends Big Cat and PFT Commenter of the "Pardon My Take" podcast (seriously), as well as former NBA players Shawn Marion and Matt Walsh. Yes, that is the same Big Cat and PFT Commenter who make fun of Pitino almost as much as we do. I wish I were clever enough to make this up, but it's legit. It may help that New Zealand is led in scoring by Edgar Sosa, one of Pitino's favorite point guards at Louisville.
