I think we're taking a spontaneous comment a little too seriously Chris...

But you're totally right about the media fawning over him. At the press conference, you've got twelve players up at the podium and half the questions were directed at 'Zinger. Not his fault though.

That comment definitely came out the wrong way; it sounded odd. But I do not think it was intended the way it sounded.

Your comments about Coach Krzyzewski are simply incorrect. He always gives credit to the players and denies credit to himself. A recent example was seen when he, Kobe Bryant and Jason Kidd were interviewed by Charlie Rose. He even gave credit to Jerry Colangelo. But he never took credit himself.

I suggest you get your facts right. I doubt you can cite an example of Coach K crediting himself over his players.

Please. Coach K. is the biggest phony self promoter in sports today. Talking about the team being a fist even as he puts himself above the Duke program with his sanctimonious American Express ads. Talking about character even as he berates and intimidates college officials. Phony equals Coach K. That's not in any question.

The only debate is whether Azinger went into K. territory with his remark.

Well, Chris, you've successfully baited readership by dragging in Duke fans and haters. You also show your form as a pretty poor journalist when you use such quality prose as "Phony equals Coach K." At least you spelled out the = sign. Nice.

Ironically, I see a Google ad for "Knockoff Golf Clubs" to the right of this comment box. You're aiding the selling of PHONY golf clubs, Chris!

Chris,

Why don't you contact the British Press and tell them to lay off of Faldo for managing his team in the worst way possible. If coaches are going to be the "fall guys," they certainly deserve the credit when their plans work out on the positive side.

Tell us a little about yourself Chris. Where did you go to school? I can probably narrow it down. How does Coach K get pulled into a golf article? Totally inappropriate! You obviously don't know enough about coaching or golf to be able to write intelligentlt about either. i hate I stumbled into this website and you can bet I won't again.

I don't know about other readers but I for one am sick and tired of so called sports writers (many of whom have never one anything in their lives) that write columns that are critical of coaches and athletes that are extremely accomplished.
Coach K and Paul Azinger are team players and both are much more accomplishedin their fields than 99.9% of any sports writer that I have ever read.

Well, Chris, I appreciate the fact that you responded. Unfortunately, you have failed to cite an instance where Coach K put himself above his players.

The fact that Coach K has done commercials does not address your claim. That's a big 'so what.' (And, BTW, at least some of K's commercials income went for charitable purposes -- a community center in Durham is the principal example.)

Give it up, Dude. You have no idea how inaccurate you are.

It shows a clear lack of information and knowledge to call Mike Krzyzewski "phony." If you had any idea of the things he does behind the scenes, your opinion would be much different. However, that does not matter, as it is already been seen that you write your articles with a lack of understanding about who or what you are talking about.

Jim Kennedy: word! Chris Baldwin: you're an ass. Like Mr. Kennedy asked, where’s your evidence? Just repeating the same baloney over & over again doesn’t make it true. Where's the interview after the Olympics where he was talking about himself & how great he was? And btw, that wasn't Coach K taking the medals off the players' necks and putting them around his own. Could it be because, gee, the players themselves actually respect him for his abilities? Wow, imagine that . . . . But why are you talking about basketball? Isn’t this a golf website? Such jealousy!

Did Coach K deny your request for an interview at some point in your life Chris? Or are you really Gregg Doyle?

Your writing is really bad. Did you even finish high school?
