Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski joined the show to talk about presenting LeBron James at the Sports Illustrated Sportsman of the Year even tin New York last night.

Coach K explained why LeBron is so special. “He has an amazing voice on the court while action is going on,” Coach K said. “In basketball when you have a voice and you’re a leader, it’s really rare.”

Dan asked if LeBron was the best player he’s ever coached. Coach K said LeBron is the “most unique.” But Coach K said he also coached Kobe Bryant and Michael Jordan. “You might put all three of those players in the top five players ever,” Krzyzewski said.

Krzyzewski made a joke about the NCAA last night and explained that he’s angry right now about how the organization punishes transfer student-athletes.

Coach K is also against conference realignment spinning out of control. “We’re undercutting the very basis of intercollegiate sports, which is tradition,” Coach K said. He said school administrators are acting like businessmen, not people who represent a school.
