HoopsHype Tim Floyd rumors

August 25, 2012 Updates

Floyd and Forman are great friends; can't you tell? They're linked by basketball, Taj Gibson (Floyd coached him; Forman drafted him) and, well, the links. They love the game, but it does not love them back. They're both gym rats with swings uglier than a Shaquille O'Neal free throw. At Iowa State in the mid-'90s, Floyd gave Forman his first golf clubs — a backup set from Floyd's garage. "Wooden heads," Floyd said. "I was surprised that Gar was still using them in 2008. Then again, he is kind of tight." Forman actually played well late last summer, shooting as low as 93. The NBA lockout was good for his game. This offseason? He has been a little busy drafting Marquis Teague and swapping out the Bench Mob for Kirk Hinrich, Marco Belinelli, Nazr Mohammed, Vladimir Radmanovic and Nate Robinson. Floyd's handicap is that he has never taken a lesson. "That's obvious," he cracked. Chicago Tribune
