In the least surprising news you’ll hear all day, Jim Harbaugh takes pickup hoops pretty seriously.

How seriously?

The coach who wears his football cleats at the Mormon Tabernacle and who destroys podiums during blocking demonstrations, doesn’t mess around on the basketball court.

Jim Harbaugh’s brother, Baltimore Ravens coach John Harbaugh, joined Peter King’s Monday Morning Quarterback podcast, and the subject of the Michigan coach came up. Jim and his family drove to John’s cottage for Memorial Day weekend. Both Harbaughs, their wives and four of their kids (ranging from 2-13 years old) played a game of pickup basketball.

According to John, this was what happened:

We’re playing, and you can picture the kind of game it is, right? Allison (the 13-year-old) happens to hit a couple jumpers and we’re playing to seven, and we’re up maybe 5-1. Next thing you know, Jim starts going over the top of Allison for rebounds, he’s boxing her out 10 feet away from the basket. Next thing you know, it’s 5-5 and Jim has made all the shots for his team of course. I’m like, you know, maybe Addy would like to touch the ball? Maybe Katie or Jack could dribble a little bit now and then?

It goes 6-6 and a long rebound comes out the side, he goes and gets it. I see Allison happens to be over there, so I see him going to the basket, he’s going to take Allison to the hole, you know, he’s about 6-3, 235, so I’m going to go cut him off. I get him with my right arm bar across his chest and I’m trying to body check him into the pricker bushes behind the driveway, and he just powers his way to the basket, lays one over the top, a reverse layup off the board, and all he could talk about is how he won. He picks up Jack and says, “Doesn’t it feel great, Jack, to win? Doesn’t it feel great to win?”

An hour later we were crossing paths in the backyard to go get a soda or something, and he looks me right in the eye and he says, “Hey John, have you won anything yet?”

In Jim’s defense, it doesn’t sound like John took it easy, either. Jim just happened to be the one who got the victory to show for it.

If only John had video of this encounter.
