Krzyzewski discusses coaching the 2008 U.S. Basketball team to a gold medal:
I don’t think you can coach them and be their coach and be star struck. I love these guys. What I found myself at different times is saying wow, here I am coaching and I’d like to do this at the highest level and guess what, we are.…I can remember Chris Bosh stepping out on a ball screen and I watched it on tape and I said, I’ve never seen a guy get that wide when stepping in. It was like a discovery. I don’t want to equate it to medicine but it was like, I’ve never seen that.
