  1. LeBron could equal remarkable Jordan record with Olympic gold

    Jul 7, 2012, 10:02 AM EST

    LeBron James Team USA

    In 1992, Michael Jordan had a year as great as any basketball player ever. He averaged 30 points a game shooting 51.9 percent to win the NBA MVP, then carried that over to the playoffs where he led the Bulls to an NBA Championship. In the process, he was named the NBA finals MVP. Then…

  2. Kobe, LeBron lead list of nine who secured berths on Team USA

    Jul 2, 2012, 11:24 PM EST

    Olympics Day 16 - Basketball

    There are no surprises — did you think Kobe Bryant or LeBron James were going to be left off the team? —  but now we know nine of the 12 players who will represent the United States in the London Olympic basketball tournament. USA Basketball president Jerry Colangelo laid it out for Chris Tomasson of…

  3. Report: Anthony Davis severely sprains ankle, out of Olympics

    Jul 2, 2012, 1:09 PM EST

    Draft Hornets Basketball

    And Team USA loses another potential big man for the roster. Recent No. 1 pick Anthony Davis severely sprained his ankle in a workout for the Hornets, which leaves him very unlikely to be ready when USA Basketball opens training camp Friday (July 6) in Las Vegas and he is now out for the games,…

  4. Chris Bosh pulls name from Olympic consideration

    Jun 29, 2012, 12:58 PM EST

    Chris Bosh USA

    Team USA takes another blow to its front line. Chris Bosh played through an injury to beat Boston and win an NBA championship, but he never fully recovered from his abdominal strain that had him out for nine games of the playoffs. To recover from that, he has pulled his name from consideration for the…

  5. Dwyane Wade needs knee surgery, withdraws from Olympics

    Jun 28, 2012, 4:14 PM EST

    Dwyane Wade Team USA Olympics

    That Dwyane Wade played as well as he did through the Heat’s title run considering how bad his left knee was in an impressive feat. And his knee was bad. Wade has learned he will need knee surgery and today called USA Basketball president Jerry Colangelo and coach Mike Krzyzewski to withdraw from Team USA…

  6. Coach Krzyzewski sticks up for Austin Rivers before draft

    Jun 28, 2012, 9:17 AM EST

    NCAA Basketball Tournament - Lehigh v Duke

    Austin Rivers is not the most polarizing guy in this draft – we’re looking at you, Andre Drummond — but he’s on the list. Rivers has unabashedly modeled his game after Kobe Bryant. That has upside — he has a real drive to score, he has the ability to shoot outside or get inside, he’s…

  7. Quote of the Day: Battier gets more Duke hate than Heat hate

    Jun 21, 2012, 6:59 PM EST

    shane battier Mike Krzyzewski

    “Anti-Duke. Way more, way more. It’s a small school. I go to New York or Los Angeles, Chicago, D.C., big cities, I get some Duke love. But other than that, no Duke love.” —Shane Battier, when asked if he hears more hate for Duke or the Miami Heat.

  8. Coach K on Olympic team: “I know LeBron will play”

    Jun 21, 2012, 5:57 PM EST

    LeBron James Team USA

    Mike Krzyzewski has some tough decisions to make about the upcoming Team USA squad for the London Olympics — do you bring in a second true center behind Tyson Chandler or do you go “small” with Kevin Love in that role? But there are some easy decisions, too. “I know LeBron will play,” Krzyzewski told…

  9. Coach K complains about one-and-done rule. Shocking.

    Apr 17, 2012, 3:03 PM EST

    Michigan v Duke

    Know this about Mike Krzyzewski — he likes to be in control of things. He may not be obsessive and overbearing about it like some coaches, but he likes things done his way. And when it comes to college basketball and the one-and-done rule, he has no control. Nobody does. John Calipari may have figured…

  10. Doc Rivers is good with his son leaving Duke for NBA draft

    Mar 28, 2012, 8:30 PM EST

    Doc Rivers

    Most parents are not thrilled when their child decides to drop out of Duke. Doc Rivers is the exception. The Celtics’ coach said he is good with his son Austin deciding to leave Duke after his freshman year to enter the NBA draft. From the Associated Press. Doc Rivers said on Wednesday that Austin was…

  11. Could ‘Melo’s role with D’Antoni cost him a spot on Team USA?

    Mar 20, 2012, 4:22 PM EST

    Carmelo Anthony, Jason Kidd, Olympics

    Mike Krzyzewski and the coaches of Team USA have some very tough decisions ahead of them as they trim the list of 20 candidates down to 12 who get to suit up in London this summer for the Olympics. Look at the power forward spot. You only really need three and the guys on that…

  12. USA Basketball coaches suddenly have extra time to prepare for Olympics

    Mar 17, 2012, 7:29 PM EST

    Krzyzewski & Kobe Bryant

    Jim Boeheim should be nervous. Let’s just say, I’m not betting on Syracuse next week. It’s been a tough week for three of the four coaches that will lead Team USA this summer in the 2012 Olympics in London — Mike Krzyzewski, Mike D’Antoni and Nate McMillan. Head coach Krzyzewski’s Duke Blue Devils screwed up…

  13. LeBron backs Popovich as potential USA Basketball coach

    Jan 18, 2012, 8:07 AM EST

    San Antonio Spurs v Golden State Warriors

    After the USA earned a bronze medal in the 2004 Olympics, Mike Krzyzewski was brought in by Jerry Colangelo to help turn things around. He was one coach who is universally respected among players and is seen as kind of “above the fray” of the politics that can go into picking an Olympic team. The…

  14. Wade says Heat embraced the dark side, but it cost them

    Nov 3, 2011, 10:31 AM EST

    USA+Basketball Wade Krzyzewski

    Every good story of a hero rising up — say, Dirk Nowitzki — needs a villain to make it work. Last season, the Miami Heat were everyone’s villains. How the entire thing went down — from LeBron’s televised decision to the pep rally — turned a lot of fans off. There was both distaste for…

  15. Coach K concerned about how lockout impacts Olympic team

    Oct 19, 2011, 2:29 PM EST

    Krzyzewski & Kobe Bryant

    Right now, Mike Krzyzewski is thinking and talking Duke hoops. That and how to keep the pesky father of Austin Rivers (some guy everyone calls “Doc”) from butting in at team practices. But a few weeks ago he was in Las Vegas with some fellow coaches thinking 2012 London Olympics. Coach K, head coach for…

  16. Who will be on Team USA for 2012 London Olympics?

    Sep 24, 2011, 12:30 PM EST

    Olympics Day 16 - Basketball

    Mike Krzyzewski — head coach of Team USA — has some brutal choices ahead of him next summer. Team USA is in the 2012 London Olympics and will come in the heavy favorite, but there are some other very good teams out there that could push the USA — Spain and Argentina come to mind,…

  17. Report: Wolves targeted Coach K for coaching position until they remembered they’re the Wolves

    Jun 26, 2011, 8:48 AM EST

    Michigan v Duke

    It’s not like they’re going to have trouble getting a coach. Any head coaching position will draw interest, and will draw qualified candidates. There are only 30 NBA head coaching jobs, so most people if offered one will take it, no matter the circumstances. But the Minnesota Timberwolves are damaging their future ability to get qualified…

  18. Are Cavaliers taking a risk with taking a Duke player No. 1?

    Jun 23, 2011, 1:47 AM EST

    Arizona v Duke

    For the last couple decades, Duke has been the best, most consistent college basketball program in the nation. They have the Final Fours, the NCAA titles to prove it. And they have sent a lot of players on to the NBA. But Duke players have not thrived at the next level. In fact they have…

  19. Kyle Singler with trick shots all over Duke campus

    May 23, 2011, 9:15 PM EST

    Kyle Singler Duke

    Kyle Singler gets buckets. This is my favorite trick shot video in a while. Not just because Singler is a national champion and a likely late first round pick in the NBA draft. And not just because Mike Krzyzewski makes an appearance. It’s because this is the most creative one I’ve seen in a while.…

  20. Doc Rivers “leaning heavily” toward coming back

    May 11, 2011, 11:36 PM EST

    Doc Rivers

    Apparently Doc Rivers wants to do more than just hang out around Mike Krzyzewski’s practices next season. After a season where the conventional wisdom was he was walking away at the end of the season, he said after the Celtics were eliminated Wednesday you probably will have him to kick around next season, as reported…

  21. Coach K stirs up Duke vs. Fab 5 issue again. Ugh.

    Mar 29, 2011, 6:26 PM EST

    Michigan v Duke

    Grant Hill and Jalen Rose hugged it out. Or talked it out. Or tweeted it out. So finally we can put this whole Fab 5 vs. Duke thing to bed…. Then here comes Mike Krzyzewski. Like your grandfather that just heard about this Lady Gaga person and wants to tell you she can’t sing, he…

  22. Coach K almost came to Lakers in 2004; will not now

    Mar 24, 2011, 2:14 PM EST

    Krzyzewski & Kobe Bryant

    Phil Jackson is going to walk away from the Lakers after this season, whether he makes it an even dozen rings or not. Brian Shaw is your front-runner. He almost certainly will be the head coach for the Lakers next season. But there will be rumors. Like Kurt Rambis (if he is let go in…

  23. Who goes No. 1 in the NBA Draft?

    Dec 16, 2010, 11:33 PM EST

    Perry Jones, Lance Feurtado

    If you had asked “Who is going No. 1 in the 2011 NBA draft?” before the college basketball season started, the consensus was North Carolina’s freshman Harrison Barnes. Except Barnes is shooting 38.2 percent this season and 29.3 percent from three. He has not lived up to the hype and is sliding down the boards…

  24. LeBron is in for 2012 Olympics; Wade and Bosh unsure

    Nov 4, 2010, 2:02 PM EST

    Olympics Day 14 - Basketball

    Right now, Team USA for the 2012 Olympics in London looks like Kobe Bryant, Dwight Howard and… LeBron James. Those three alone could go 3 on 5 and get out of group play. LeBron is in, he told Ira Winderman of the Sun Sentinel. The other two/thirds of the Miami triad are not deciding yet.…

  25. Dwight Howard throws his hat in for the 2012 Olympics, too

    Nov 4, 2010, 9:27 AM EST

    Olympics Day 6 - Basketball

    I guess we’re doing this now. It’s not like we are 19 months and basically two full NBA seasons away from the USA Basketball camps where the team for the London Olympics will be chosen. We’re asking now who wants to go. Count Dwight Howard in. Asked by the Orlando Sentinel if he was going…
