    Default Coach K to take over US basketball team for worlds and Olympics

    SI.com is saying that Coach K (no way I'm trying that spelling!) is going to be named by USA Basketball to coach in both the world championships, and the Olympics. First college coach to head the team since the NBA players started playing in 1992.

    I think that's a great move.

    Default Good move.

    As much as I hate Duke, and I rrrrreeeeaaaalllllyyyy hate Duke, Mike Krzyzewski is probably the best coach in the game right now. This is a very good move for USA Basketball. Now they just need to put amateur players back in the games, instead of the pros.

    It would have been Pitino if he didn't go "Pro". Good news for coach K though.
    Just go for it!

    I think it's a good move. College coach is likely to spend a bit more practice time on fundamentals, teaching, and teamwork, which is what the guys need, even NBA guys. Theoretically Larry Brown should have been great, but whatever.

    Plus, it's possible he may be able to get some former Duke guys to play and actually play hard. Or even ACC guys, even though they may hate Duke, they'd HAVE to respect the guy, more so than perhaps they respect NBA coaches.

    We'll see.
