So Duke won the NCAAs. Duke. The team we love to hate. Somehow, more than any other team, they find a way to win. They typically have good players, but there are other teams with better players. This year, I think Syracuse and Kansas had better players. But Duke had the better team.
There is something about the way that Duke team is coached. And the way they play. The coach seems to have a knack for get the absolute best, and then some, out of his players. In fact, I firmly believe that Mike Krzyzewski (you know I had to cut and paste that name and what the hell kind of name is that? And what’s with how it is pronounced?)…. Anyway, I believe that Mike Krzyzewski is a) the best coach in college basketball but, b) he takes so much out of the kids when they are in school that they have nothing left when they get to the NBA. If they have anything left at all, they are so beat up, they can’t stay healthy (Grant Hill comes to mind). That said, Duke is very simply badass. There is not one team in college basketball that has the killer instinct and the total stone cold desire to win like Duke. That, folks, is badassitude!
