Rick Pitino certainly has a way with words.

The latest evidence of this fact comes courtesy of his most recent blog post for his website. Among other things, the Hall of Fame coach writes about Louisville's banner year, his plan for 2014, and what he believes is the biggest weakness for the Cardinals. Oh, and he also used an analogy featuring Christina Aguilera and Justin Timberlake to help explain Louisville's front court issues.

Let me give you an analogy of our front court knowing who they are. It’s like having Christina Aguilera to sing at a concert, she comes out, ignores her great voice and dances for two hours. That’s our front court. I remember as if were yesterday asking Rodrick Rhodes, who played for me at UK, this question. You are a great defender, slasher and passer — why are you trying to show everyone the 3pt shot is your thing?

People come to watch Christina sing.

People would come to watch Rodrick pass, slash, and defend…. In other words, Montrezl and Chane – Need to dominate the paint. Rebound like Kenneth Faried , defend like Dennis Rodman, block shots and dunk. Score off rip moves and leave the dancing to Justin Timberlake.

So there you have it, folks.
