JTIII: “I Could Stand in the Middle of McDonough and Shoot a Freshman and the Administration Would Still Love Me”


GEORGETOWN, D.C. – After a rocky season plagued by student protest, surprising defeats, and team issues, Georgetown Men’s Basketball Coach John Thompson III told reporters that, “I could stand in the middle of McDonough Arena and shoot a freshman and the administration would still love me. It’s crazy.”

Despite polls suggesting otherwise, Coach Thompson has been able to maintain his position as men’s basketball coach after a 15-18 season and a series of transfer requests. While Coach Thompson asserts that he has risen to this station due to his own hard work, critics from across the court point out that he is only successful due to inheriting so much from his father.

“Look, I had a great season, everyone knows that. We went out and we played and we scored touchdowns and everybody loved it. If you were there, you would have seen how packed the stadium was. The stadium has never been that full, it was amazing,” rambled Coach Thompson after a press conference.

Supporters of Coach Thompson maintain that “he hasn’t taken anything from his father, not even his name” and that “he’s a better choice than those savvy basketball insiders, who know the game way too well”.

Time will only tell if the administration acts to stop Coach Thompson, or if Georgetown Basketball will be struggling for another four years under his administration.
