It was a very cringe worthy interview where he struggled to come up with answers, he was stuttering at times, he kept on pausing as if he was trying to mentally reset what was on his mind and what he wanted to come out. there were times where costas had to re explain the question to floyd because floyd was not understanding the question in its proper context. That jeremy lin segment especially. Floyd should have just left that subject alone.

My question is where is al haymon and leonard ellerbe? Floyd should have a proper public relations teams behind him coaching and prepping him for these type of interviews especially against a true bull dog sports journalist like bob costas.
It's because that polite, being humble, speaking straight guy is just not him. He's just not good at doing serious interviews or one-on-one interviews. Even on Conan he looked a bit awkward. Ever notice that the only times he looks comfortable in interviews is when Ellerbe or some of his crew is around him.
