    Oh The HORROR of a man asking for an employment opportunity while two institutions make HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS off of his son. The NCAA is the most gangster org in America and has the FEDS cosigning on their behavior. Now do you believe that "Not all laws are just"?

    I always supported K...and idolized his coaching and leadership ability. That said, he is lying and delusional about Zion's NCAA issues. Typical obfiscation. When it comes down to it, its not about honesty and integrity, its about winning. Winning first, everything else comes second. That is the Coach K message and philosophy. Lets all be honest and then we can better understand the guy. He's not a great human with integrity, he's simply the greatest coach. Nothing more, nothing less.

    "THEY'RE BASKETBALL PLAYERS." You see people, with that statement alone, you see why Coach K is the best. Because he recognizes what he has and does not FORCE a concept upon these guys based on some "position."

    Zion, season 4 as a pro will become faton, time will tell for sure but... I see this kid become fat real fast.

  • AMJR Live from Somewhere

    I love love love how he tries to get as close to the basket as possible. Sounds trivial? Watch how many dudes settle for 18 footers with 17 sec on the shot clock. Kinda reminds me of DeRosen. He gets to the FT line.

I LIKE COACH K BUT I THINK THAT ITS FAKE AS HELL THE NCAA IS MAKING BILLIONS OFF EXPLOITING THESE ATHLETES WHOSE FAMILY LIVE BELOW THE POVERTY LINE. COACH K MAKES GETS MILLIONS FROM DUKE AND MILLIONS FROM NIKE AND ALL THE OTHER SPONSORS THAT GIVE HIM MONEY . YET HIS ATHLETES PLAY FOR FREE. IF THAT AIN'T SOME CORRUPT SHIT I DON'T KNOW WHAT IS.

      so why should Coach K be singled out? He just adapted to the game. He knows that these guys will leave after one season, and he doesn't try to hinder them. I'm sure he prefers the old days, where he could have some year to year cohesiveness, but it is what it is--and it pays him really well.

    It’s a damn shame that Zion will leave college after this year. But just like the NHL draft these men should have the option. They have a unique ability, no one on earth can do what they do, what would you pay for that???

    With the exception of kyrie irving and grant hill, duke players just dont pan out well in the nba. They kick ass in college then get to the pros and drop duds. We'll see how Zion does at the next level, cant give him the "next lebron" title just yet.

      He's actually underhyped. We have never seen a player this big, this athletic, this fluid, this skilled , this young. Some of the so called experts were lazy and had people believing all he could do was dunk. It's your own faul that you bought the Wiggins hype. He's never been a killer. You could see that at Kansas
