Will D’Antoni Coach the 2012 Olympic Team?

His buddy Mike Krzyzewski certainly wouldn’t mind: “I don’t want to say who I think would be good (for the job), but Mike D’Antoni is a great friend and was huge in us winning the gold medal,” said Krzyzewski, “He’s really a genius, especially offensively. A lot of ideas we had on the offensive end of the court were Mike’s.” That said, whether Krzyzewski commits to coaching the 2012 Games or not, he fully expects to be involved in some capacity. “I’m interested in helping U.S. basketball go forward and I don’t know what role that will be in,” Coach K said.
