Coach K’s letter to Michael Jordan after finding out he wasn’t going to Duke

287766_640x640wcDuke’s head coach Mike Krzyzewski and his 900+ wins is one of the classiest in the biz. After finding out Michael Jordan, a guard living in Wilmington North Carolina, wasn’t going to Duke, Coach K wrote the above letter.

I’m guessing his tone may have been a little different had he known MJ decided on a school just 15 miles down the road from Durham.

    Please……tell you that you have something better to report than a letter to MJ from Coach K. There were many that turned down Duke and Coach K that wished they had done differently. Talk to anyone on the USA Olympics Basketball team, yes they are great; but they would have benefited from a legend who imparts wisdom.

    Really? The words ‘classy’ and Coach K should never be associated with each other. Anyone who follows ACC basketball closely knows this. This is clearly a form letter, and could be sent to ANY of the people that have chosen to go elsewhere. Not sure how this is even relevant today.

    UNC fans are just mad because they’re stuck with “huckleberry hound” Roy Williams. How can you criticize the best coach in the game when you have a back woods hillbilly who cannot dress, speak clearly or even coach your team into the top 25? LMAO talk about calling the kettle black. Coach K’s dogs have more class than Roy….Keep hating heels.
