Team USA Coach Mike Krzyzewski takes on ALS Ice Bucket Challenge

Aug 13, 2014, 3:22 PM EDT

This summer people around the nation are dumping buckets of ice water on their heads, all for a good cause — all to raise money and awareness for ALS. And it’s working. The idea has gone viral, people everywhere are dumping ice water on themselves and more importantly donations are way up to a very good cause, riding the world of ALS.

Now Team USA basketball coach Mike Krzyzewski is getting in on the act. He had his grandchildren dump ice water on him. I love that at the end one of them wants to do it again.

Best yet, he challenged the rest of Team USA to step up and do it when they are in West Point (where Krzyzewski used to coach) for training next week. That should be quality video.

    Its incredible that we need research money for alzheimers. Its so easily cured its not even funny. It is a physician caused disease. Look up these words to know the cure. DR JOEL WALLACH ALZHEIMERS.

      Dr. Wallach’s credentials, veterinarian. When my dog’s mind starts slipping I’ll be sure to contact this guy to prescribe him some minerals, which according to the internet is his Alzheimer’s remedy. Maybe Fido can wash that down with some snake oil for maximum results.

        if you’d like me to back this treatment up with medical studies from pubmed I could go on all day showing the correlation between every nutrient he named and improvement in any disease you can name. It doesnt matter what it is. the cure is fixing the nutritional deficiency that is the root cause. You are a joke of a mind using the first google result you get and passing it off as truth like you’ve done any medical research in your life. this is a revolution thats going to change the world. you are a scumbag liar piece of trash

    My mother worked with dementia patients for over 30 years, don’t joke about it man.

    As for coach K, this is how you’re supposed to do it…be creative and challenge people who can make a difference, rather than your minimum wage friend who serves at the local diner. (Clearly his “friends” are different than ours, but I get challenged…why not do it and post to twitter challenging my favorite athletes, or whomever my idols are/were.)
