Roy Williams Asked Why He Feels He Has The Right To Dictate What The Media Asks Him

Roy Williams spent part of his Final Four post-game press conference scalding the media. 

The North Carolina coach said he's "a hell of a lot smarter" about basketball than the reporters who cover him. His response to a question about retirement was: "Don't ask me that stupid question."

At a press conference this afternoon, Sports Illustrated's Pete Thamel asked Williams why he feels he has the right to dictate what the media asks him about. 

Williams said he doesn't have a great answer to the question, but doesn't believe he's been dictating the questions. 

">@SIPeteThamel just asked Roy why he feels he has the right to dictate what media asks. “Good question. I guess I don’t have a good answer."

Good for Thamel to ask what was definitely a tough and uncomfortable question. 

North Carolina is set to play Villanova in the title game on Monday. The contest is set to tip off at 9:19 p.m. E.T. on TBS.
