Tom Lehman turns to international coaching loser Mike Krzyzewski for advice: Forget any Ryder Cup win now
Why else turn to Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski for international coaching advice.
That’s equivalent to going to Martha Stewart for legal advice, to Urkel for tough guy advice, to O.J. Simpson for marriage advice.
Coach Overrated K is fresh off guiding the U.S. Basketball Team to a third-place finish at the World Championships. After weeks of fawning press coverage touting how things had changed dramatically under the sage coaching and team building of Krzyzewski, the U.S. lost to a Greece team that couldn’t beat the Atlanta Hawks on an off-night for the Hawks. A Greece team that promptly turned around and lost the Gold Medal Game by about 40 points to a Spanish team that didn’t even have Pau Gasol.
Granted, Coach American Express didn’t do as bad of a job as Larry Brown did in Athens when the U.S. also finished third. But that’s only because Brown’s Olympic run of whine ranks as the worst coaching job in basketball history.
Coach Phony, er K, at least managed to play LeBron James. Though it took him until the Bronze Medal Game - with Gold already gone - to use LeBron as a point forward, the position the NBA’s best talent should have been in all along.
Seeing this, Lehman still decides to ask Krzyzewski for his words of wisdom on international coaching. Lehman spent two hours with Coach Scream this week.
Nice, Tom. Why not just consult Gene Mauch or Marv Levy?
They know how to lose the big one too. Of course, no one’s blown quite as many Final Fours as K.

"no one's blown quite as many Final Fours as K." ...
do you know why? that's because NO ONE goes to the Final Four like Coach K. While I am on the subject of finishing second or third, I believe Mr. Nicklaus did that many, many times, but I guess he is a loser too :)
