CNN's John King appears to be unwinding with a little sports after the marathon 2008 election season. In addition to demonstrating the Magic Wall to Ahmad Rashad on NBA TV on Tuesday, King was also recently interviewed by the Sports Business Daily. I thought this was the most interesting Q/A from the interview:
- Q: What pro or college coach/manager reminds you of Obama and McCain?
King: Obama's like PHIL JACKSON. You know, live the moment. Block out everything else and be in the present. That is Barack Obama. And I think that McCain in some ways is like BOBBY KNIGHT. He wants to win. He has this appetite to win, and sometimes that appetite to win comes across as crusty and grumpy because he's so competitive.
