The Texas Tech basketball Sports Information folks are lucky he didn't get hurt.
And because Head Coach Tubby Smith didn't get hurt, we can laugh at how stupid funny this is.
Check out what happened during the Red Raiders Midnight Madness basketball event on Friday. We are assuming they thought it would be cool to have Tubby do a "Shaft" speech, complete with music, on the video board to introduce the evenings festivities.
The appear to have thought it would be even cooler if Shaft/Smith rode into the gym on a motorcycle.
Which was great until he tried to stop.
