As a Tarheel fan he has made my life hell for decades. Had Kobe went to college he was going to Duke. Olympic gold medal winning coach. Demands instant respect from a roster full of stars.

Given all the Mike Brown hate, mine included, I sat down and thought of my dream coaching choice. Coach K is it. The longest of shots admittedly but in a perfect world, he's the man for the job.

Let's hope Duke tanks and the constant loss of young talent to the NBA pushes him into the pro game next year.

Survive this year however we can and have Dr Buss back the Brinks truck home and get him.

A pipe dream but one that would satisfy everyone involved.

Never liked Duke, but I've always respected Coach K as a coach and have always wanted him here. Offer him a boatload of cash and he might at least consider it.

yo.

Coach K loves Duke. He already passed on the job a few years ago, he had no interest in leaving Duke then so I would expect he would not leave now.

Ehh didnt like how he coached the olympics. Just did a bunch of iso with no defense. He's a great college coach but I dont think he's that great of a pro coach.

There is no chance in hell he would leave college. No chance.

I don't like him at all. It's quite easy to be a "good coach" with a Dream Team on the floor. He would surely struggle badly in the NBA with a team that not features 8 o 9 superstars.

Arguably the greatest franchise ever

Its quite easy to say Coach K isn't a good coach when you don't like him at all or don't know what you are talking about.

No doubt its a pipe dream. The fact is there aren't that many coaches of Coach K's caliber out there with his level of experience. Admittedly, he has no NBA experience but I think he'd be a great fit.

Coach K would be an amazing coach, no matter where you put him. He just knows basketball so much better than almost everyone else. I think he'd be a great NBA coach.

The thing with coach K is that he works best with young, undeveloped, college talent. He gets these guys from high school and coaches them, both on and off the court, on how to be professionals. The NBA doesn't give you that opportunity of shaping players how you want them to play and act. In the NBA, you have to accept the characters and the roles of each player, and decide how to use them. Taking Coach K away from what he does best isn't going to happen. He loves what he does, and he's made that clear.

Stage 1 complete.. Now on to Stage 2..

I'm cool with PJ, K or Sloan. We just don't need another 'test case' coach. This is the Lakers were talking about.
