North Carolina reserve forward Theo Pinson has turned crashing press conferences into an art form, having done so for the second time yesterday. With some of his teammates joining Hall of Fame coach Roy Williams for a press conference ahead of tonight’s national championship game, Pinson took the liberty of showing up right behind Williams and giving a creepy smile before walking up and down the dais.
Then, as can be heard in the video below, Pinson said off-camera “How are you all doing?” and “Great day to be alive.”
It just goes to show that Theo Pinson is the definitive locker room guy who may not do much on the court, but keeps everyone in the clubhouse loosened up and smiling even when times are tough.
Given how the Tar Heel have a date with a tough and defensive Villanova team in the championship game tonight, here’s hoping that Pinson can rally the troops just as much as he needs to ahead of tip-off.
The action is set to start at 9:19 p.m. ET on TBS, so be sure to tune in!
