All politics aside, here is a sure fire way to not win the state of Indiana when running for President (see DailyMail.com article).
It’s a basket, hoop, rim, the tin, goal…there are so many synonyms. Just don’t use “ring” when you are possibly the most passionate basketball state in America when explaining the basket, Mr. Cruz.
Coach Bob Knight, a Donald Trump endorser, was quick to criticize Cruz and noted that “a guy that would come into this state (Indiana) and think that we played with rings instead of baskets is not a guy that’s very well prepared to do a whole hell of a lot.”
Coaches, be sure to communicate effectively with your team or the message you may be sending may get totally skewed.
