Krzyzewski begins quest for third straight gold
Krzyzewski certainly deserves plenty of credit, as well. He’s among the most respected names in coaching, and his decision to get involved in the first place, and stay involved for three tours, has underlined the importance USA Basketball has in the hoops landscape.
“What it says about him is he could’ve sat back and said, `I won the two gold medals and I’ve done my thing,’” Colangelo said. “But he’s a competitive guy. He has set himself apart from everyone already in terms of coaching. But he’s still willing to put himself out there on the plank. And I love that.”
