Like Coach K for USA basketball?He's coached team USA since 2006 and done pretty well for them as well as recruiting and coaching at Duke.

I agree with poster below..


The dirty job was done by Jerry Colangelo.

Coach K, in WC's 2006 didnt even know the names of Greek players.


"---Coach K reserved his special praise for three other Greek players, all of whom he identified by number, claiming that as someone whose own name gets mangled often enough he didn’t want to disrespect anyone by mispronouncing theirs. And so...

"I thought number four (guard Theodoros Papaloukas) was spectacular in the first half,’’ said Krzyzewski. ‘‘Number seven (Spanoulis) was spectacular in the second half. ‘‘And number 15 (Mihalis Kaziouzis) had some huge shots for them, especially at the end of the clock.’’ Later on, he returned to the subject of Papaloukas, who had 12 assists.

‘‘I just couldn’t devise a defense to stop him,’’ Krzyzewski admitted---"

He's lucky that International game is not as strong as late 90's- mid 00's. And the NBA american players are better, more talented than ever.
