Duke’s Coach K Threw A Not-So-Subtle Jab At President Donald Trump

by 3 years ago


Didn’t think Coach K would be the kind of guy to speak up about a politician. The man has a gravitas unlike anyone else in college hoops. But yep, he went there with with some not-so-subtle shade at the Trump administration, specifically regarding POTUS on Twitter

via The News & Observer:

At the time, Krzyzewski was making reference to an ESPN story that reported he had punished his team after an 84-82 loss to N.C. State by preventing his players from going into the home locker room and wearing Duke gear.

“We’re in such a line-item society. Twitter world,” Krzyzewski said Saturday. “So when one thing happens, that’s the story. It’s a good thing leaders don’t lead that way. I hope they don’t. I know one uses Twitter a lot.”

Duke plays North Caroluina on Thursday night. How savage will it be if Duke loses and The-Donald-In-Chief lights up Coach K on Twitter?
