Coach K is Duke basketball and Duke basketball is Coach K. You can't separate the two. The Lakers should know that. Shame on them for making the offer, but I can't say I blame them.

The Lakers don't deserve Coach K, but I don't think they deserved Phil Jackson either. Money talks, though, so needless to say I am as worried (okay, maybe half as worried) as the crazies that Coach K and his family may make the wrong decision. He seems above that though, and he should know that the legacy he's already created at Duke goes above and beyond anything he could ever possibly accrue in the NBA. Or is it? I can't think about it.

Coach K once said:

Discipline is doing what you are supposed to do in the best possible manner at the time you are supposed to do it.

My words of advice to Coach K are similar:

Wisdom is knowing what you should refrain from doing at the time you are bribed with $40 million dollars to do it.

Don't go, Coach K, don't go.

Did you really need to acronymize NBA? And here's the real question we should be asking - why is it an abbreviation tag? Why not a more general "definition" tag, as I used it in this post (look for the word "stacked")...

Just my $0.02

Oh, and Coach K, don't go.

I don't care about the Blue Devils, but I do anti-care about the Lakers...

If I had linked to the NBA's website I wouldn't have used the tag, but this way people who come through from other countries or who don't follow sports at all (I know, but there are a few of them out there), they have an idea of what I'm talking about. Then again, with my posts, they probably still don't have a clue ;)
